Windows Defender Task Bar icon

More of a nuisance than a problem.

Although I've set Windows Defender to 'Always Show' in my Task bar options, its icon keeps disappearing.

Anybody know how I can fix this?

Hi Jackoms, as I understand it the icon for windows defender does not stay in the task bar. It only appears if it finds something nasty. What you originally ticked it to do was just that.

Ah, I see. That explains it.

Yes, it does appear in the Task Bar when it has something to tell me (or nag me about). ;-)
