    windows defender security center dosn't start correctly

    There have been several updates to the Windows Defender Antimalware since then, so It's worth investigating to see what (if anything) has changed. I'm afraid to say the answer is 'very little'.

    The Windows Defender Security Center still has problems opening when high contrast display modes are used. High Contrast #1 and #2 are the worst affected, High Contrast Black and High Contrast White seem to work.

    It still seems to be the case that, as I said in post #13..
    ...The bug only stops it opening. You only have to change to a different high contrast theme to start Defender Security Center, once it has started you can switch back to your preferred desktop and it will continue to work normally while it is open. It's a one-time fix, if you close it you'll have to make the temporary switch to open it again.

    I just checked one of my IP/Insider Preview Version 1709 Build 17083 test machines and the High Contrast didn't seem to block anything on Windows Defender. I checked all 4 choices. The computer has an ATI Radeon HD 2400 video card, replaces the onboard adapter.

    To reproduce the problem in Version 1709 build 16299.214 perform the following steps in this order:
    1) in Settings > Ease of Access > Colour & high contrast - choose the Theme 'High Contrast #1' and apply.
    2) Open Windows Defender Security Center from the icon on the taskbar.

    Defender will open, but will have a blank display. Some of the icons, like 'Home' will appear if you hover the mouse where they should be, but clicking on any of them closes Defender.

    For test purposes it is important NOT to have Defender open when you select 'High Contrast #1'. If it is open before selecting the theme it will continue to work normally, but once it has been closed it will not open properly again while either High Contrast #1 or #2 is selected.

    For whatever it is worth, I recently started to have a similar problem with viewing the Windows Defender Security Center on my WIndows 10 PC, ver 1709, OS Build 16299.214. However, I was not using any High Contrast themes and I was recently having a problem viewing the Windows Defender Security Center. Very odd...

    I was able to make the Windows Defender Security Center display correctly by simply rolling back my NVIDIA video graphic card driver. The most current NVIDIA video graphic card driver for my video card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070) was released to the public on Jan 29, 2018. I think this latest graphics driver may have some bugs. I just rolled the graphics driver on my desktop back to the prior version of the graphics driver that was released by NVIDIA to the public around Jan 3, 2018 and that fixed everything for me.

    You may want to fine tune your graphics card and see if that helps. As I mentioned above, just rolling back to an older (more reliable) graphics driver fixed my PC. It cannot hurt...
