Problem:

Available Resources:
1) https://blogs.vmware.com/PowerCLI/2018/01/windows-defender-reports-false-positive-powershell-modules.html

This is what i did:
1) DISABLED WINDOWS DEFENDER REALTIME and CLOUD
2) Find-Module "VMWare.*" | Install-Module -AllowClobber -Verbose -Scope AllUsers -Force
3) Find-Module "VMWare.*" | Update-Module -Verbose -Confirm:$false
