    Windows Defender


    How can you change the time when Widows Defender auto scans your PC? When I had 8.1 it ran about 2AM. That was OK. Now in 10 it runs about 4 or 5PM. That is when I use my PC most. I looked in Task Scheduler, but I can't find it.

    I thought it was fixed. Now it scans at 2:AM and 4:30PM.

    I am afraid I cannot help you.

    Perhaps double check your schedule in case you have made 2 settings unintentionally during the "several tries".
