I clicked on "ok" and tried opening Defender, and everything worked fine. I changed the time for the scheduled scan and waited to see if it would start up again. It did, but no scanning window was visible.
So my question is this: When Windows Defender runs a scheduled scan, does it open a window that shows the scan progress or does it just run as a background process (MsMpEng.exe)? and does it display a window with scan results?
Because I see neither the scan progress nor the results window, but the home screen of the Defender interface shows that a scan took place.
I've only had Defender for a short time and can't recall its behavior during previous scheduled scans.
Thanks in advance.
