    Defender tray notification icon deleted

    Hi, everyone

    Sorry to bother for small things, by mistake in CCleaner I deleted the startup entry of Defender notification icon. I remember I have seen a reg file here, in this forum but can't find it.
    Could you be nice to help me finding it? I don't want to add an entry in Startup folder, prefer to set it like it's set after clean install.

    Thank you, appreciated in advance.

    Do you have a system restore point you could use?

    And you could try searching the Tutorial section...

    Once you run WD Security Center, it should be restored automatically. This is what it restored for me:

    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" /v "WindowsDefender" /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "\"%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MSASCuiL.exe\"" /f
