I’m on Windows 10, using the latest update Microsoft started pushing out a short time ago. Windows Defender gets updated every day.
This latest major update from Microsoft might be causing some oddness on the margins. Cams that use h264 became out of luck with this update, for example.
Anyway, I chalk it up to running the cleaner while launching other programs, including Microsoft’s utility. The cleaner might have deleted junk while the system was using them and maybe that triggered Defender. Or maybe Defender just locked up and then looked at the only running program as the culprit.
This latest update from Microsoft has a lot to do with security. Figured I owed it to the community to mention this, it’s not a criticism.
