    Question Windows 8.0, Windows Defender

    Looking for the article that was written how to program the Defender. It explained how to have it check for updates and scan on schedules. Hope someone remembers the article. It's worth passing on.

    I believe that was on the old version Defender or possibly MSE. I believe Windows Defender in Win 8 or 8.1 does not allow the same scheduling options as it did in MSE. I believe you must use the Task Scheduler now. This forum answer shows how. This Bing search shows other possibilities.

    Medico and BruceR, please accept my apologies, I didn't read it right. Eyes aren't what they used to be. Sorry and THANKS!
