    Windows security threat found action needed. actions button does nothing?


    I see windows security did a scan and found "threat found, action needed status active active threats have not been mediated and are running on your device. (a trojan, trojan:Win32/DropCheetak.AA!MTB)

    If I click on the actions button and select remove, nothing happens. but I see there are other entries where the same threat was quarantined then removed, but the removals are from an EARLIER time in the day. so how can I clear all the data and do a new scan, quarantine and see that it has been quarantined, and make sure it is deleted? the toolbar icon along the bottom of the screen still shows the red X on the windows security shield....

    Disable Action Center in Windows 7?

    Unfortunately that doesn't disable Action Center, all it does it cause Acution Center to bitch about the Security Center service not running.

    Action Center seems to be a different beast from Security Center...

    And telling it to not display any messages gets it out of the way, the same way disabling the icon in the suggestions above does, but Action Center is still enabled and running.

    No button for bluetooth in action center


    Joe,

    Assuming that you have a Bluetooth card, run these checks -

    Do you have a Bluetooth entry in Settings, Devices?

    If not then Windows does not think you have a Bluetooth card. Check Device manager for a Bluetooth group.

    1. If neither of these is there then you do not have a Bluetooth card or you have disabled Bluetooth in the BIOS. You should check your BIOS for a relevant entry but BIOSes vary so I cannot suggest where such a setting might be. You could seek advice from your computer maker or their user forum.
    2. If one is there but not the other then you might be able to get it working correctly by reinstalling the driver from your Computer / Bluetooth card maker's website.

    You can customise the items shown in Action center but Bluetooth, if it is enabled, is generally put there by default. As explained above, you can customise what is shown by playing around with Settings, System, Notifications. You can add more entries or you can drag off existing entries or you can drag existing entries around to get them in the layout you prefer.

    Windows Defender "Start Actions" Button Not Working

    Windows Defender is telling me "Virus & threat protection. Threats found. Start the recommended actions." There is a button below, which says "Start actions". Clicking this button has no effect. Should I just ignore it?

    I'm on Windows 10 Pro, version 1703.
