 > It seems Windows Defender is interfering with your Tor Browser.
 Only when Tor Browser tries to do unusual things ;)
 > Could you uninstall Windows Defender for testing purposes and check
 whether that fixes it?
 Hah. Windows Defender is part of Windows 10 and also a built-in
 replacement for EMET ;)
 There is no easy way to uninstall it, and that's good ;)
 > Maybe there are even options to configure Windows Defender to let Tor
 Browser do it's job?
 Sure, as in any security software. And it's up to the user to learn how to
 configure Windows 10 properly.
