Random stuff:

a) How to manually clear Windows Defender Protection History in Windows 10
win+e -> View -> Hidden items = ON.
Goto C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History & delete Service folder. Done.

b) If Hidden items = ON , you might notice a hidden folder $WinREAgent with subfolder Scratch on Windows 10's Local Disk C
$WinREAgent is created during Windows Update and contains temporary files. It's safe to delete it (but don't bother).

c) You might also notice hidden msdownld.tmp on Disk D or E, you can delete it if want. It'll resurrect itself anyway lol
