  2. Windows Defender blocking PUA?

    Few questions about blocking PUA in Windows Defender.

    I enabled the prevention or blocking of PUAs and would like to ask how intrusive the notifications are?

    Are there a lot of false positives?

    I only download and install apps which I really need, no Java installed and really careful on what apps I install if I really had to.

    Does blocking PUA really helps blocking Ad Choices in the browser or it does not? Because I do get those lately.

    Windows Defender blocking PUA?

    - Notifications. same as other WD notifications (PUA at the beginning of the message)
    - False positives: hard to tell. Have none in a month or so (non PUA detections)
    - PUA blocking is only for file transfers. Nothing to do with ads themselves (only ad injection).

    From MS doc:
