  1. I can not see my Windows Defender settings, I need help!


    Hello, I noticed that I can not see my Windows Defender settings, I've read some articles and they said the issue was from malware softwares like Mcafee and other apps, But I do not even have Mcafee or any malware softwares.When i try to access the Windows Defender through the settings app, this is the only thing i see:However, When I access Windows Defender Settings through the windows search bar, I get this message:Overall, I don't know what's causing this issue, there might be a hiding app that's protecting my PC but how can i know which software it is?

    :)

    Installing Apps on Windows 10 Has Windows Defender Finding Malware

    Hi Tommy,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community.


    • Is this issue specific to third party apps?
    I would suggest you to open Windows defender and add exclusions and check if it helps. Follow the steps to add exclusions in windows Defender.


    • Type Windows defender settings in the search bar and press enter

    • Under Exclusions click on Add Exclusion
    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.
