    Something's not jiving with that Security Dashboard.
    Mine always says everything is fine but the Defender UI always shows different!

    This type of stuff shouldn't happen in a public release. Insider preview Ok, public release NOT OK, IMHO. It's "supposed' to be all sorted on in the preview builds. Thing is though, they always seem to want to add or change something right before a public release of the Consumer version.
    I think they rushed this one to coincide with the EOS of Vista.

    Tried the update on a VM -- still got the red warning - but run the scan -- nothing found, and after a re-boot (of the VM version) the standard Green is OK. I'll try doing this on my main installation now.
    If you get it again, try looking in...
    Windows Defender Security Centre > Virus & threat protection > Scan history > See full history
    That's the only place that seems to list every detection, be they from scans or real-time protection.

    I'm with everybody on this also that the interface is just horrible compared to what it was......Come on microsoft we are human beings not robots we like to have some nice visual stuff to look at instead of something that looks like a blank white piece of paper with some text on it.

    Hello @munk1955, :)

    You can still open the original Windows Defender Antivirus UI using either tutorial below. It does take around a minute or so for it to actually open though.

    If you prefer the old green UI it's still there, though it takes about 45 seconds to open. Make a shortcut to:
    "C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe"

    I tried the shortcut option myself but I found invoking WD was failing every now and then.
