For virus check applications, Docker docs discusses it briefly.

Some security solutions update dll files on Windows and conflict with containers. Please contact your security tool provider and inquire about the Windows container support.

There is a workaround running Windows Docker containers on Windows 10 in process isolation when Symantec Endpoint Protection is installed. See the blog post.
