Currently I have 20 cashier laptops at our school that are running Windows 10.  The cashier user is just a normal domain user.  Occasionally there will be a pop up that goes into the task bar what looks like a shield saying that malware has been detected.  Since that are not admins to the PC then they cannot clear the message and it can impact the user experience if they don't know how to work around it.  I have done some reading that Malware discovery feature can only be turned off for a short time and it gets turned back on.  I personally don't like the idea of turning it off either.  Can someone give me some guidance on what my options are?
