    Hello!

    A Full scan can take a long time, particularly if you haven't cleaned up your temporary internet files recently. Six hours is a long time, but not unknown. If you prefer, you can still use the old user interface for Defender, it's still there in Creators, just not with a link to open it.

    Run: "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe"
