  1. Windows Defender "Quick scan due" Warnings


    Good evening,

    My Windows Defender keeps bringing up a warning icon, saying "Quick scan due" when I open it. This is quite annoying as it occurs very frequently throughout the day, even though I scan it multiple times just to see a green check icon. I would understand if it could warn me whenever there is some threat or potentially harmful application but that is never the case; it keeps notifying me that zero threats were found after each scan.

    Is there any way to disable getting these "Quick scan due" notices disabled? I searched online but no luck.

    Any help is appreciated! Windows Defender "Quick scan due" Warnings :)

    Thank you!

    :)

    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?

  3. Turn off Quick scan needed warning

    Windows Defender notification area icon is regularly displaying a warning flag in the notification area icon. When I open Defender, it asks for a quick scan. Everything else seems OK. I only wish to see warnings when things are important (e.g. virus definitions
    out of date or protection is turned off). How can I disable the quick scan message?

    Windows Defender Quick Scan question

    I just did a quick scan on my computer, when it was done in notifications area got message: Windows Defender scanned your PC At 1:42:10 on 2/28/2017 and took action against malicious software, but the windows defender screen said: Scan completed no threats
    detected during this scan. There is nothing listed in the history either, what does this mean?
