    WinDefender notification issue

    Actually, it was not a corrupted user profile issue. It was a "Background Apps" issue.

    Turning all Background Apps OFF (Settings > Privacy > Background apps), WinDefender notifications cannot work because "Windows Security" app is included in there.

    "Windows Security" cannot be considered as just a Background app, like "Tips", "Mail", "Weather" etc. and/or should not affect WinDefender inside settings.

    WinDefender settings should not be affected by other/elsewhere settings, except those of Group Policy.
