  1. Windows defender Task bar red cross


    Can someone help me please.

    I am using windows 10. The defender shield icon in the taskbar has a red cross on it meaning actions required. When I open the dashboard all the items have green ticks stating no action required! When I try to do a manual definition update nothing seems to happen.


    Thank you. Madeline B.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Defender - How to make it default to task bar?

    Using Windows 10 and currently I am using Defender for anti virus. For whatever reason Windows Defender does not show up in the task bar unless I search for the program or right click and scan a file/folder. Is there a way to force Defender to show up in the task bar at start up?
