    Build 17074 Windows Defender failing

    Normally have Defender icon set to show on the Taskbar and it usually shows green unless there is a problem. Since I installed build 17074, it starts after a reboot and then just goes away. The icon is showing in the Taskbar for 3-5 seconds and then gone. I run a third party AV package (Kaspersky Total Security, current and updated). Usually if I stop/pause Kaspersky, Defender starts complaining immediately. Now, no messages at all.

    Anybody else seen this?
