    Bug: Settings app crashes

    Whenever I go to the "Settings" app, then click on "Update & security" and then, if I immediately click on "Windows Defender", after a few seconds the app crashes.

    It would be too easy to say: just don't click on Windows Defender :)

    I assume that you have conflicting 3rd party anti virus software installed.
    Please check your system for any leftovers of McAfee, Avira, AVG, Kaspersky etc.

    if so, uninstall and restart.
    Good luck

    As a matter of fact, I don't need to click on "Windows Defender" because I don't even use it. I was just pointing out the bug. I'd say the app shouldn't crash at all.
