  1. Windows (10) Defender , how to remove yellow icon: Quick scan due?


    So anyone know how to disable windows defender from showing yellow icon down in taskbar, that is caused by Virus & threat protection saying quick scan due. I don't need windows to ever remind me when to do scans, I have my own settings for those.

    Can You Run Defender Quick Scans Automatically?

    All my PCs routinely show a yellow marker on the Defender tray icon nagging me that a Quick Scan is due. Is there a way of configuring Defender to run these Quick Scans automatically when due?

    1909 - Windows Defender freezes mid scan.. constant "quick scan due"

    Howdy!

    I installed Windows 10 Pro completely fresh (new cpu, new motherboard, new drive) in December and since then the little windows defender icon in the tray has had the yellow ! triangle telling me a quick scan is due.
    But whenever I perform a quick scan (or a full scan, or any other scan) it will just eventually freeze up (window remains interactive, scan just ceases to progress) at a random point. It doesn't seem to be a fixed point, sometimes it gets stuck at 6097 files, sometimes 5849 (these are random numbers, not any specific ones I've noticed).

    Is this just a known issue with 1909? We have another PC downstairs that doesn't get used much outside of spring/summer, but I updated that recently and it also ran into the same issue of getting stuck on defender scans. That pc was updated from 18xx or whatever the previous windows 10 build was.

    OS Build 18363.657

    Windows Defender - Quick Scan

    Windows defender no longer offers a quick scan option.

    My options are:

    • Scan
    • Advanced Scan
    • Full Scan
    • Custom Scan
    • Windows Defender Offline scan
    Whichever option I check, the scan will need to run for hours to complete.

    Is a quick scan available?

    How do I restore this feature?
