    The security center is not part of Defender doing its job. It is just a User Interface to allow you to control it called MSASCuiL.exe. The real work is done by MsMpEng.exe which you never see (except listed in Task Manager). Your contrast setting should have no effect on it.

    There's also the old style UI from before Creators Update, it's still available in Fall Creators Update, but hidden away. That one still works in high contrast (I've just tested it).

    Though that too has a bug in Fall Creators Update (but one with a workaround) awaiting a fix in a cumulative update.

    so i should be able to set up defender the way i want and then revert back to my normal desktop and all should be good

    with the normal once a month check up to make sure all is well

    updates says it's up to date, that is what started this i was not seeing the updates recorded so i went poking around, they were in reliability but not listed in the updates tab in security.

    i have also did the remote assist with MS and they seem to gloss over the info as to the HC settings the went straight for MALWARE BITES to un install it (i can re install no biggy)

    Many Thanks To All

    it's not fixed but working around it waiting for the next cum update

    While you wait, I've found another workaround that may be more use to you.

    The bug only stops it opening. You only have to change to a different high contrast theme to start Defender Security Center, once it has started you can switch back to your preferred desktop and it will continue to work normally while it is open. It's a one-time fix, if you close it you'll have to make the temporary switch to open it again.
