I had been using Kaspersky AV, but ran into problems with it. Last night, I switched to Windows Defender. Does Windows Defender cooperate well with Trainers? What are your thoughts on using Windows Defender? Help appreciated

Well, it had up until around October of last year. Now it's almost as bad as some of the others but it does seem to pay attention to your exclusions and is easy to disable/enable if necessary.

I have a vanilla Win 10 running with Defender and Windows firewall only.

Defender seems to be less intrusive than other AVs and I get reliable information why a trainer might not work in the first place.

I have used Windows Defender on Win 8(.1) since the beginning and it have never blocked any trainers from CH. It is active and working though because it have blocked some random files from various sources but never a CH trainer file.

Windows Defender is all you need in terms of AV. AVs tend to lag behind in defensive capabilities with zero-day malware being the universal weakness. Although it is rare, sometimes trainers get flagged by Windows Defender but Microsoft is one of the few vendors that will actually respond to and correct false-positives when you open a ticket for it (which I have done in the past).

Outside of that - Do this to keep your computer more secure.
1. Keep your computer up to date with Windows Update
2. With #1 - Opt in for Microsoft Update for more protection
3. Use PSI to keep your programs up to date.
4. If you do not use Java regularly, uninstall it and do not install it.
5. If you do not use Flash regularly, uninstall it and do not install it.

add your gaming directory and your trainer directory to the exempt listing for files and folders. Since doing that Have had NO issues with trainers or games and MSE does a good job keeping the pc clean

You will find it under settings.
