    Defender tray icon showing yellow triangle?


    Windows Defender is showing a yellow triangle on the tray icon, even though it is fully updated? The Security Centre home page shows all settings green ticked, and the only problem I find is on the "Apps & browser control" page, where the first item "Check apps and files" has a heading saying (In red ink), "This setting is managed by your administrator". And of the 3 options below "Block/Warn/Off", the option is set to Off!

    Is this the problem? Or is it something else?

    Any advice welcome!*Confused

    :)

    Network icon in tray has yellow triangle but net works fine


    Hi,

    Last night I bit the bullet again & upgraded to windows 10 & then did a clean install. I have noticed that the network icon in the system tray shows a yellow triangle & says no access but I can surf fine with chrome & use qbitorrent etc.

    The only way I can get rid of the yellow triangle is to disable the network adapter & then re enable it.

    Not using any third party firewall as private fireall doesn't support windows 10.

    Any ideas?

    Windows Defender shows yellow triangle briefly when I sign in

    When I first sign in, the Windows Defender icon briefly shows a yellow triangle with an exclamation point, then turns to the green circle with a check mark. Sometimes it only takes a second or so, but sometimes it takes 30 to 60 seconds. Is this a sign
    that something is wrong and the malware subsequently is hiding that problem? If not, why does it happen?
