Defender and Comm Surrogate messages on install in Windows 10

I have a Windows 10 machine that gave me the Defender message that it was blocking the install. I got past that and then was given a Comm Surrogate message…I ignored it too and the install proceeded correctly but it gave me some pause whether to continue or not

The defender message is just because this release isn’t digitally signed. Our digital cert came up for renewal right in the middle of moving the business and I wanted to wait to have it attached to the new address, wasn’t expecting to do a release during this time.

The COM surrogate thing is the process that sends thumbnails to Windows, which for some reason I’ve never been able to figure out, occasionally gets stuck.

Neither is a problem.
