    On startup Desktop appears, auto goes to Win defender security

    When I turn on computer, desktop appears, then immediately switches to Windows Defender Security Center. When I close windows defender out it goes back to desktop. How can I stop this?

    In File Explore toolbar/ View tab put a check box in Hidden Items. Now Browse to C:/Program Data/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Startup
    If Windows Defender is in there, delete it.

    "Disabled Windows Defender in CCleaner tools, startup "

    FYI; this keeps the interface from opening but Defender will update in the background after a shut down then cold start. Windows Update will also seek other updates at the same time.
