    Windows defender threat "removed or restored" but still comes up as 1 threat found


    Hello,

    I downloaded a program and got infected with Trojan:Win32/Conteban.B!ml

    When Windows Defender alerted me, i deleted the folder that was downloaded and emptied my recycle bin.

    Since then, i have re-scanned my computer a few times and it always shows "1 threat found"

    Windows defender threat "removed or restored" but still comes up as 1 threat found 81e1e0ec-5947-4eaa-9223-f6b7aeca17e1?upload=true.png

    Protection history shows the threat but theres only an "allow" option. Windows defender threat "removed or restored" but still comes up as 1 threat found c1671ad3-ac5c-44c7-ac92-57ad2857757e?upload=true.jpg

    I did a malwarebytes scan and it came out clean.


    Does this mean it's still in my computer?

    :)

    Is restoring a quarantined threat the same as allowing the threat?

    My Windows defender scan reported a threat last week. I quarantined it. After a few days, I updated my defender virus definitions, restored the threat, and ran another scan (because I wanted to find out if it was a false positive). This new scan did not
    report any threat.

    However, under defender's threat history, allowed items, I see this threat listed. I do NOT want to allow the threat, just wanted to find out if the latest definitions would still reported the file as a threat. How should I do that? Thank you. I am using
    windows 10.

  3. Windows Defender is missing Restore Button for Quarantined Threats

    It wasn't listed under "Quarantined Threats", but was listed in "See full history" as quarantined. It has been about 2 hours
    and now it is listed under "Quarantined Threats" which now shows the Restore or Delete options. Something must be causing
    a delay in listing the quarantined file under "Quarantined Threats" after they have been found and quarantined by Defender.

  4. Windows defender threat "removed or restored" but still comes up as 1 threat found

    Defender wont remove the threats

    I ran Windows Defender full scan which took over 15 hours to completed. It indicates that there are 20 threats which I want to remove. However Windows Defender gets stuck and does not remove any of them. It has been running for over 20 hours and nothing.
    What can I do to remove these threats.

    Thanks
