    Win Defender forgot it scanned PC a day ago.

    Ran a "Full Scan" on the PC Saturday. Sunday morning when I turned on the PC, Windows defender was in a red alert status stating that the PC had not been scanned in the past 30 days. Had to perform a "Quick Scan" to clear the red status alert.

    Has anyone else had this issue? If so; any suggestions on how to avoid this from happening again?

    Do you use ccleaner? See if there is a check by Defender. Uncheck it and see what happens.

    See this post starting on page 2 for details on unchecking the right box if you are using CCleaner.
