I agree, they have messed it up somewhat. You have to right click > open to launch it from the notifications area. If you click the shield do you get the screen with the quick scan option? If yes, do that.
I really wonder how the discussion went regarding the changes of Defender. "Double clicking is what people are used to when opening stuff, let's remove that and make everyone have to right click and chose open! Even if there's an exclamation mark!". I've said it before, the windows devs have a fetish for making everything more incremental. I think windows 10 is awesome, but there are so many things that required like 2 steps in windows 7/8 that now requires 5 steps.
