Windows Defender Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running a scan for malware using Windows Defender (as part of Windows 8) and not only is the scan taking an awfully long time, but while it's running, there is a yellow caution bar saying my computer is potentially at risk. Is this normal while the scan is running? If not, what should I do to fix this?

  • What troubleshooting have you done thus far?
    Have there been any Defender error messages?
    Have you checked in Event Viewer / Windows Logs/ Applications & System for any yellow warnings / red errors?
    Did your computer come with another Anti Virus program pre-installed on the system?

    What other Security programs have you installed on your computer?
