    Windows defender keeps notifying about threats that have already been selected to be...


    So, I scanned backup files and windows defender found stuff in alot of them the same item repeated in each backup, I selected to quarantine all of them and pressed start actions, after a while this shows up on the taband then I get a notification that there are actions needed, asking me to take recommended actions against the same items I selected to be quarantinedI even restarted but this happens everytime.Not really sure if this is visual or it actually has issues removing this stuff, I will run a scan after posting this.

    :)

    Defender notified threat.

    As my AV am using Kasperski free plus MBAM free.
    Also have set up Defender to do periodic scans (there being no conflict)

    Defender has notified a threat and quarantined it.
    Neither Kasperski or Mbam reported it.
    Link below for info on threat.

    Windows defender is continuously notifying "defender antivirus found threats"

    Hi,

    I am running Windows 10 Education version 1703 61-bit on an Intel Xeon(R) X5472 @3.00GHz processesor.

    This morning I started receiving these notifications from the windows defender app "defender antivirus found threats." three or four times every minute. The defender app already scanned and found the threat. it also performed an offline scan. but is continuing
    to notify multiple time a minute.

    but when clicking on the notification the windows defender security center does not show any threat. the system has slowed down considerably.

    What remedies should I apply.

    Thank you

    Best Regards

    Suppress "Windows Defender Antivirus did not find any threats..." notification on Windows 10

    You can turn off Enhanced Notifications for Windows Defender:

    1. Press Windows + i.
    2. Click Update & Security.
    3. From the Update & security sidebar, click Windows Defender.
    4. Scroll to the Enhanced notifications section and select No.

    If you do not see Enhanced notifications as an option (likely because you are running Windows 10 15042 or newer), include the following additional steps:

    1. Click Open Windows Defender Security Center.
    2. Click Virus & threat protection.
    3. Scroll down and click Change notification settings.
    4. Turn off Receive recent activity and scan results.

    This will turn of successful updates and only notify you critical events.
