Do you know what Defender is doing that other more full-featured 
packages aren't in terms of application performance impairment?

In my searches I've found many explanations of the impact of the 
problem, but nothing about its cause, not even whether Microsoft intends 
to repair Defender to work more efficiently.

I'm hoping we can pin down the difference between apps affected by 
Defender and those that run unimpaired, so we might consider whatever 
changes may be needed to LC to put it into the latter category.
