Windows 10: action center does not update notifications anymore Solved

    action center does not update notifications anymore


    i am using Windows 10 Pro since release as an upgrade from Windows 7 Prof., and most things including the new action center worked fine. But since three days now the action center is totally empty, shows only the "no new notifications"-message. All of my settings are still correct, my accounts in Mail App e.g. are still active (and showing my new mails if i open it), the action center settings to show banner+sound for Apps and programs are all ON, and every single piece of software i am using is working as intended, except the action center

    I don't really know what's suddenly wrong? I did not install any new software or made a driver update. The only thing last days was an automatic update for Windows Defender, but i don't think that's causing the issue.

    Any ideas how i can get the action center back to work? Perhaps soem Windows services aren't running but i don't know which one could be responsible for the noticifations. I checked the installation with "sfc /scannow", no error.
    Would be nice to get the action center back, it's very annyoing if i need to have every program always open.

    Thanks in advance for any helpful hints and solutions, and sorry, if i mispelled some of the technicals wrong, i am using the german version of Windows 10 so i just translated it


    Oh, and no, i didn't accidentally set the action center to "quiet"

    It depends on if you went into Settings and set to not notify you for anything. I have my wife's computer and a test machine to only notify if the system has updated. When using Chrome, it can end up notifying you about stuff, which can become a PITA.

    My setting for notification are set ALL to ON, but not one single program notifies me actually

    The joke is: it worked fine since release of Win 10, and i made absolutely NO changes last time, and suddenly three days ago the action center stopped displaying any messages. Don't get me wrong, action center is still working so it is not the known bug with this crashed database. It does just display me "no new notifications"-message, anyway what program i'm running! No new mails are shown, no update notes, no planned and started processes etc., nothing! And honestly i don't really know what is going wrong here and how to solve it?!


    Ok, i found it. It's an issue with Windows Defender. If i deactivate it, notifications are working again, until i re-activate the Defender. Must be some bug Microsoft implemented in one of the last updates

    Hope they'll fix it soon, because it's not very safe to have an unprotected Windows running!
