I know a lot of people say Windows Defender is "good enough". So keep this new bug in mind: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-defender-antivirus-scans-broken-after-new-update/
The TL;DR info is this: Full and scheduled scan is broken, custom scan still works.

Should read "was broken" since at the time of posting it, it was fixed already.

How is this different from any other antivirus?  They all have update bugs from time to time.

Lee, the issue was it would say it had scanned when it didn't.
