Game taking upwards of 2 minutes to launch

While it's not really a big deal, and the game seems to run fine whenever it does finally open, I didn't have this issue on my last Windows installation.

We can't recommend using a computer without malware protection in 2020 if it's connected to the internet under any circumstances. You could try just adding an exclusion for OpenMW, or, even better, reporting a false positive to the vendor so they whitelist OpenMW.
