    Strange Windows Defender notification


    When I returned back to my computer today there was a notification in the Action Center: Here is what it read:
    Strange Windows Defender notification-553b99922a.jpg

    It says that 2 threats were dealt with but if I check the history I don't see anything in the Quarantine at all. Is there any way to find out what these threats were?

    I am not sure, but you have to do now a manual scan, find the two threats and decide what to do with them. After the manual scan they probably show up in history.

    In the history tab of Defender, select the All detected items radio button, then click on View details. It may be waiting for you to take action there.
