Problems with Deep Freeze and Windows Defender

Faronics has been made aware that some customers running Windows Defender and Deep Freeze are experiencing issues with Windows Defender blocking portions of the Deep Freeze product. This can present as a number of different issues including maintenance tasks not running and the client machines not reporting or being controllable through the Enterprise Console.
