    One Thing I don't like on New Windows Defender In Creators update, I have to exclude some folders and files for a game, and after each scan, it displays a list of the expections that it couldn't scan, i'm like I know that in my mind

    Exclusions are for Secondlife Game, Firestorm viewer lol

    Trying it before I decide if I wanna reput in back Avast or not at this point, so far system response is nice and fast, scans are pretty quick, a few quirks though, but I can probably live with those

    Just as someone already said. It hopefully will be fixed at later time.

    Does this mean it will tell you it has removed some malware, but will not tell you what, how, or why, under any circumstances?

    No, it has all the same info as the old green UI - you just have to go looking for it.

    Overall I like it, but the biggest gripe is the yellow triangle when something it thinks needs attention. I have it showing because I don't have a sleep time set, so I have a constant yellow triangle which makes me have to just ignore it, but now I don't know if something really needs attention because the yellow triangle is always there. There should be an option to click "ignore issue" or something when you don't want to be notified of something it thinks needs attention.

    Yes it is a bug, Microsoft is already working on it, I've got an answer from MS engineer on my feedback in FH regarding this and it's already noted in the known issues for latest Insider preview build 16170. The UI is just UWP based UI, nothing to do with Settings, however you can find a link to Windows defender app under Windows update.

    Yes, UI is a bit uncomfortable but it will be fine over time, give it a time.
    Yet another obvious bug. How did it pass insider testing and MS software QA?

    I have experienced another glitch when ALLOWING false positives. I choose ALLOW and APPLY but the red icon on the white shield remains there unless a reboot. Any ideas?

    Experienced Major System Malfunction other day, unknown if related to Defender for sure or not, but was trying the Creator version, anyways Started out day listening to Iheart radio, then decided well i'll try a game, Need For Speed Most Wanted, and well didn't launch from Origin, so then finally left that alone, and tried to play Dirt Rally, (worked, but wouldn't go full screen like it used to

    Last game I tried was Steam--Microsoft Flight SIm X Steam Edition--failed, then a lot of other apps wouldn't work, stated Directx Failed to Initilazie, make sure got correct driver for video card, which I do.

    Tried System Fresh Start refresh, well then Microsoft Edge wouldn't open anything lol, or allow me to download again

    Finally fixed with Clean system install lol

    Did scan for any infections--nothing found lol
