Windows Defender should allow you to either disable the background scanning in favor for scheduled scans or turn off notifications. They're in the settings somewhere..How do I turn off Windows 11 from actively doing background virus scanning? I got a notification just now as I was playing a game that the virus scan has completed no threats detected...
wtf... I never scheduled any scans. I have no automatic submission turned off, but the rest of the virus scans on default.
any advice welcome. I don't mind it scanning, but I want to do it manual only.
edit: yes I googled how to do it. but the setting that it says should be there for me to click on isn't there... so... fuck if I know.
