All you need installed in the core shields and none of these system security and cleanup apps. If you do use file sharing, then it’s perfectly cromulent behavior and you can ignore Avast’s bitching. Disable the "Remote Registry" service, it has no purpose in a Home environment–that solves #1.
See this post if you want to disable Command Prompt. I’ve had to use it exactly once in my life when trying to fix something on a PC, and as such I’d have to agree with Avast that it needs to be disabled.
Yeah, I run windows defender on my windows drive and it works all fine for me. In fact, I’d get rid of Avast all together, Windows Defender is perfectly fine for home use. Unless you have messed with the windows firewall (IE turned it off), or you have messed with the firewall on your home router, I’d ignore this crap.

Windows 10 Defender is a reasonable alternative, I don’t know if I’d be advocating it for a Win7 Pro system though, they’re not really the same program. At best the Win7 version is a neutered malware solution. Win10 Defender is an evolved MS Security Essentials and does a much better job.
