Windows 10 Defender brings system to a halt

I’m wondering how you guys are doing with Windows 10.

I now have it installed on My Master and Slave (Vienna Ensemble Pro machine) and immediately noticed that on loading projects the system would stall for maybe 3-6 minutes and then recover. In taskmanager I found that Windows Antimalware was top of the CPU List. Going into the settings part of Windows Defender and turning off Realtime Protection fixes the issue immediately. However, Microsoft have decided that you have no option, they will re-enable realtime protection after an undisclosed amount of time. It is also turned back on after reboot. So I have to turn it off on both machines each morning and watch that Windows doesnt reengage it during the day.

Anyone find a way around this or other Windows 10 gotchas?

See if this helps
