    Windows defender asking me to scan my system repeatedly

    I am having a strange problem with my Windows 8 system. Every time I restart my computer windows defender asks me to scan the system. When I scan the system nothing turns up and all the scans come out right. Can anyone help me solve this problem please?

    Yeah widows defender is the software which helps your computer to scan every time for the virus files in your system.
    So you can be well protected with this windows defender software.So it will be very helpful for you to change the the control panel settings.
    You can set the settings such that you can have the windows defender scan for every week.
    You will not get the scan again and again when you restart your system.
    This is the solution of your issue and a quite simple one.

    To solve the Windows Defender repeating activity, schedule its task.

    Press Winkey + R , in the search field type Task Scheduler and press enter.

    Click Task Scheduler, to invoke task manager,

    Select Windows Defender and add schedule to it, that will direct the software to perform its duty on scheduled time rather than every time the system boots.

    Try that .
