    The Windows Security icon in the system tray shows the yellow exclamation mark for Action Recommended, but when I click on the icon and open Windows Security settings, there is nothing flagged for recommendations.

    Windows Defender shows actions recommended but no actions listed

    hi All,

    Windows Defender shows actions recommended but no actions listed when I click it, it shows a exclamation mark inside yellow triangle, but security dashboard is all green. Not sure why Windows defender keeps showing yellow exclamation when there is nothing
    to worry about regarding security.

    Any help to identify the issue appreciated, or if someone confirms it's a bug then happy to ignore it till its fixed.

  3. Windows Defender yellow exclamation mark - but no problems flagged

    A few days ago I set up a new PC (Windows 10 Professional 64-bit) with Norton as the security provider.

    The Windows Defender taskbar icon shows a yellow exclamation mark. When I hover over it, the hint says "Actions Recommended":


    Windows Security has yellow exclamation mark with Action Recommended, but nothing flagged... 7215291e-57c6-46e9-ab08-2ed4b7172b0b?upload=true.png


    But when I click the taskbar icon and go to Security at a glance, no problems are flagged:

    Just to be sure, I've clicked into each of those seven areas and no problems are flagged. The only sort-of warning I see is on
    Account protection, where it says in red text, "To use Windows Hello, sign into Microsoft." However, tat doesn't appear to be an actual warning, just an informational message. And I prefer to use a local account for logging in.

    I've rebooted multiple times, I've run Windows Update a couple of times, and I've run a couple of Norton scans.

    Am I overlooking an actual warning, or is this a false alert? And in either case, how can I resolve it?
