Every day Windows Defender (Windows 10 build 1703) asks to review files to send to Microsoft
When I go into Defender it shows a "sample submission" window with a path "...\appdata\local\google\chrome\user data\default\preferences"
"Preferences" is actually a config file for Google Chrome, with no extension. It does not have a virus, it's not even a false positive
I cannot exclude it in Defender as the file does not have an extension, and whomever wrote the exclusion code in Windows Defender failed to realise files may not have extensions. Defender thinks all files without extensions are folders You can now exclude files without extensions (as files), but problem still exists when this file is excluded. I suspect exclusion process does not understand file without extensions?
How do I stop this from happening without turning off the Defender features?
This is happening on many Windows 10 machines with similar Chrome config settings, and this started happening with Windows 10 1703 build
