  • Reported problem with the latest Windows Defender “Unexpected error”

    Posted on March 25th, 2020 at 09:35 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Oh boy. You know that unpublicized Windows Defender patch that fixed the “Items skipped during scan” bug?

    There are two reports on Reddit already about bugs in the new version. Per u/K1Xaviesta:

    Hi I just updated my windows 10 and I got a notification that the windows defender is off and when I go to Windows Security and Virus & threat protection to turn it on it says “Unexpected error. Sorry, we ran into a problem. Please try again.”

    Are you seeing similar problems after installing  KB4052623?
