  1. Windows 1903. Spyware and Unwanted Software Protection missing.


    I first noticed this in the Nightly version of Fx under their Security Software list in about:support. The Antispyware name was blank. I believe prior to Windows 10 1903 it was listed as Windows Defender Antispyware or something like that.

    Looking at Windows 10 1903 Security and Maintenance|Security only the Firewall and AV is listed. I believe, might be wrong on this, that it used to say something like Spyware and Unwanted Software Protection.Can anyone else who only uses Windows Defender on 1903 confirm that there is no antispyware program listed under S&M/Security? If so, is it now baked into the AV and not listed separately? I found a reg entry that if you create it an enable it is supposed to activate PUS and PUP but that still doesn't show up in any listing.

    :)

    "Spyware and Unwanted software Protection". Whats with this notification???

    Why does everyone think hiding the message solves the problem? THAT IS NOT A SOLUTION Your suggestion is to pull the fuse of the service light in your car so that it won't annoy you anymore.

    spyware and unwanted software protection

    I keep trying to turn on virus protection because the message "spyware and unwanted software protection" keeps appearing, and it tells me to start now on so I turn it on and 3 seconds later it turns off automatically and says my PC is at risk. Did anyone
    have this problem? What did you do? And should I take it to get checked out?
