Thanks for confirming what I hoped was the case.
Here is a superb .PDF that contains up to date (RS3 / 1709 / Fall Creators Update) which covers literally all Windows 10 security related details ("meat and potatoes") in one nice, though rather large, document.
Holy cow! Yes, that's a large but rather interesting reading. Nice finding, thanks for sharing!
You are welcome, Krusty.
Great share, WildByDesign.
Microsoft Docs are a goldmine of information.
Are the features in this in Windows 10 enterprise available to home/pro users ?

Fantastic insights in Windows 10 security.
I have been enjoying the Microsoft Ignite sessions all week as they became available.
And from your list, I see that several sessions that wasn't uploaded yet last time I looked, has now become available.
Time to get a cup of coffee and a sandwich, and enjoy those sessions also.
Yep, such good article deserved its own thread
Yes, I saw the replies on it!!
Is it possible to apply the PUP registry tweak on the Windows 7 version of WD or it's only for W8 and above?
It is possible with Windows 7 and Microsoft Security Essentials, but the tweak is a different registry setting. You can find it HERE on my site.
In addition to all the great Ignite sessions mentioned in this post : https://www.wilderssecurity.com/thr...-windows-10-needs.383448/page-48#post-2709385, there are also this session that should be viewed also :

Microsoft doing very well with zero undetected samples, one user dependent and everything else auto-blocked.
"Very"? With 13 FalsePositives? Are you serious? It is the highest value after F-Secure....
As @Djigi mentions in post above, AV-Comparatives have also published their September 2017 False Positive test :

Microsoft doing very well here also.
^^^ That belongs to "AV-Comparatives: Malware Protection Test - September 2017"
The link from Martin C and the post from Krond refers to "AV-Comparatives: Real-World Protection Test – September 2017"
AV-Comparatives: Real-World Protection Test – September 2017
I'll still take any of the solutions to the left of it on those charts...
I'd also add that I couldn't be happier with the official release of the W10 1703 CU, earlier today
