    Task Scheduler HEAD SCRATCHER


    I asked a PC Expert on YouTube for help. I wanted a way to force Defender to do a weekly full scan (not the quick scans it prefers doing). Brian (the kind Brit PC guru) posted a tutorial using Task Scheduler here --

    How to Schedule a FULL Scan with Windows Defender - YouTube

    So I found the task and edited it like he advised. When finished I went, oh no, is it me or did I just edit an existing task? Which was NOT my intention. It was to add a task. Not replace a task.

    See the date circled in blue?

    This tells me 'some' task ran this morning after boot. On my other PC the exact same thing happened. This means Windows runs a scan of some sort each morning after boot.

    So buy creating a weekly scan did I accidentally end this daily one? If YES how do I get the original one back?

    :)
