Windows 10 May 2020 Update is bugging some users with false security warnings – TechRadar


Windows 10 May 2020 Update is causing problems with Windows Defender, whereby Microsoft’s built-in antivirus solution is erroneously and repeatedly flagging up potentially dodgy apps which aren’t actually on the PC at all (having been previously removed).

As of the new May 2020 Update, Windows 10 by default now identifies ‘potentially unwanted applications’ (PUAs, also known as PUPs – ‘potentially unwanted programs’), and deals with them, which is all well and good in theory. However, the problem is that when you run a scan with Windows Defender, it’s continually picking up on PUAs which have already been dealt with.
