Re: "a change was made by a known application" alert
go into tools/options
Scroll down where you see:
"Choose if windows Defender should notify you about"
Uncheck Software that has not been classified for risks"
Scroll all the way down and click "SAVE"
If that doesn't resolve it- then also uncheck- Changes made to your ocmputer
by software that is permitted to run
Make sure you click "Save" again
