Windows defender kills two of my services RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows defender on my Windows 10 (V 1709) keeps killing two of my services while they are running. I can see this in the Windows event viewer system logs.

    1. If I turn off real time protection, these services run. 

    2. I have added the folders of these programs to the exception list.

    3. I have added the exes to the exception list.

    4. I have added the process names to the exception list.

    I have to run these programs on a schedule. So, I can't keep turning off Defender real time protection every time I run my programs. Also, I can't afford to keep defender off as there is no other anti virus software on my machine.

    Interestingly, when I run a scan with defender AV, it doesn't detect my programs as threats. 

    How do I resolve this issue?
