    This update also address the issue where the AVservice does not start on LDMS 9.0 clients if Windows Defender is detected

    Steps to Duplicate:

      1. Install an LDMS 9.0 SP3 client with AV
      2. Update the core to LDMS 9.5
      3. Run vulscan on the LDMS 9.0 client so that ldavhlpr.dll is updated from the 9.5 core

     

    Actual result: AVservice will fail to start because it detects Windows Defender as a 3rd party AV application.


    Expected result: Should ignore Windows Defender and run
