Windows 10 Redstone 5 hit down the middle in third-party antivirus

Microsoft announced today a new preview with Windows security enhancements. The new build is from the upcoming big update Redstone 5, Windows 10 that the company plans to release later this year.Windows 10 Redstone 5
As you already know and we have pointed out many times from iGuRu.gr, the Windows 10 operating system is being developed as a service. This means that we will see new features on a regular basis. Microsoft has released five major updates so far: November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Creators Fall Update, and the last April 2018 Update.

The latest version released earlier this month, Microsoft renamed the Windows Defender Security Center to Windows Security. It is not uncommon for Microsoft to rename a feature, but it is very rare to make it simpler.
Let's add that while the company's developers are still trying to fix bugs that appeared after the public release of Windows 10 April 2018 Update, another development department is experimenting with Insiders with new features for an upcoming version, before the previous one is even fixed.

In any case, the Windows Security Center (or Windows Security Center - WSC) service now requires protection products to run as protected processes.

Products that do not run protected processes will not appear in the Windows Security window. In addition, the Windows Defender Antivirus will remain enabled and run with these products.
Does Microsoft's decision tell you anything? Yes, apart from the fact that it may be aimed at Windows security, the company decision does not seem to care about the end-user system resources, Ή does it care but does it aim to remove all third-party security software in Windows?

We do not know how the new feature will be released, but for now you can only disable it by creating a new registry key. The following registry key is not available in a future release:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FeatureDisableAvCheck (DWORD) = 1

It should be noted that the company is not said to require anyone to not install third-party software, which would present problems in possible monopoly practice checks, but forces third-party applications to run in parallel with its own software and on its own terms.
