    Pity really even if another av installed wd is still very much a pest with any changing of default settings account protection
    To disable defender see this: how to turn off windows defender

    Then you can enjoy Nirsoft Utilities for example__

    All you had to do is quote me but I already have done that plus action center.

    Just to update this. Checked this morning, and yep, got the same thing. Red X on the icon -- and my backup didn't run.

    How can I fix it?

    PS. I don't want to disable Defender but it's blocking my backups and is acting like a virus itself!
