  2. Windows Defender yellow exclamation mark - but no problems flagged

    Unexpected Yellow Warning Symbol on Windows Defender in Windows 10 | Alexanders Blog

    This shows 3 ways of getting rid of that annoying yellow !

    Edit: Was looking everywhere for this fix. Go to virus and threat protection, click on the arrow next to "windows defender antivirus options" and turn periodic scanning on. A pop up will appear, click yes and then you'll see more options appear. Scroll down the list and you'll see an icon with a red X, you should also see a dismiss button next to it. Click on dismiss to get rid of that yellow exclamation mark. You can then turn periodic scanning off. The same pop-up will appear. Click yes, and then you're all set.

    Windows Defender has yellow exclamation mark - But there are no problems

    Hi Dirk3672,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand your concern, this issue can be easily fixed by changing few settings under Windows defender. I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Open the
    Windows Defender Security Center page>Click on Virus & threat protection.

    2. Scroll down to
    Ransomware Protection and click it.

    3. At the bottom, in the Ransomware Data Recovery section, Click on set up OneDrive.

    4. Next to that text was a link to Dismiss the notice. Just clicked on that and check if the yellow exclamation is gone.

    For more information you can follow the post
