  1. security icon, actions recommended


    since i 1st updated my new laptop 3 weeks ago i have seen a "!" on my security icon and it says actions recommended.

    when i open the security dashboard all icons virus protect, account, firewall/netwok, app browser control, device security and performance and health are all showing a green tick, all but family options so im assuming that is the issue.


    is there a way of removing the recommended action notification as i have started to ignore it which would be a shame for me to ignore a real security issue... i dont have a family so i cant change anything there

    :)

  2. Windows Defender, Actions recommended

    For two days now I've had the actions recommended on windows defender highlighted. Everything is green in the security details, and I am given no suggestions on what to do to get rid of it. What do I do?

    Windows Defender shows actions recommended but no actions listed

    hi All,

    Windows Defender shows actions recommended but no actions listed when I click it, it shows a exclamation mark inside yellow triangle, but security dashboard is all green. Not sure why Windows defender keeps showing yellow exclamation when there is nothing
    to worry about regarding security.

    Any help to identify the issue appreciated, or if someone confirms it's a bug then happy to ignore it till its fixed.

    Hi Philip,

    If you'd like to disable the "Actions recommended" notification, we suggest that you try the these steps:

    • On the Search bar, type Task Manager.
    • Open the Task Manager and go to the Startup
      tab.
    • Locate Windows Defender notification icon and disable it.
    • Once you are done, restart your PC check if the notification will still appear.
    Feel free to post back for the end result.
