What is Defender blocking
Defender alerts me that it is blocking some start-up programs (little yellow
speech-bubble in sys-tray says "Click here to see which programs are being
blocked").

When I click the alert it opens Defender, but there is no indication of
which program has been blocked. How can I find out?

thanks

M

Hi Michelle,

In Windows Defender, click on Tools/Quarantined Items.

Right-click on the icon in the System Tray and one of the options is
something like see blocked programs, that'll open a new menu showing what
program has been blocked. If it looks safe you can run it.

Typically in 90% of cases its msconfig being blocked after making a change,
in which case its best to run it.
