Have not used @yardbird but really don't think configuring it via the built-in tools is all that difficult to the point that you'd need another tool.

The tool has been around a long time and the reviewer still seems to recommend it so doesn't look like there would be any harm in trying it out.

It is not designed for Windows 7.

In reviewing the documentation briefly it doesn't seem to be for Windows 8.1 either even though in theory it is the same engine. The documentation says it is for Windows 10

Thanks for the reply Ron !!   I must have missed it over the years.....   & we have Win 7 - so we won't use it...... Cheers

Yeah, it probably wouldn't work.  Defender in Windows 10 is very different from Defender (or MSE) on Windows 7.
