Once you install it a virus causes almost everything to shut down, and all levels kinds of worthless programs start burning everything else to the ground

I unconditionally turned those off on day one.
You're so brave! :)

But you didn't read all of it. Even with UAC disabled, I get this:

Even if your personal account has admin privileges, there's still a separate "administrator" account in Windows that you may or may not need to enable. If you log on using that administrator account, you may be able to fix the issue by adjusting your personal user account admin settings--there may be some restrictions even if you have "admin" permissions--thanks Bill Gates--never a problem on a Mac--but I don't know offhand how that works.

Sorry, I did see but it didn't register in my brain that you mentioned the built-in admin account.

That's OK. It works in the admin account, but I didn't think of tweaking my everyday one from there, or the exe. I'll see what can be done (if anything).

The moral of the story is, it's good to be admin. 8)

Nope, it's the UAC, not Defender, so there's no "Unblock" checkbox.
