First off, we have added a checkbox option to continually display the system tray icon. We heard your feedback loud and clear on this one, so those who want to see our icon with the little green check in their system tray as a sign of system health can now do so. We have also improved Windows Defender’s ability to report more accurate data about potentially unwanted software through SpyNet so that we can help create better definition updates.
Finally, we’ve made some minor updates to the UI and we are on track to release our Japanese and German localized versions and expect to turn on the update notification for existing Beta 1 and Beta 2 customers soon – so keep an eye out!
With these upcoming changes to our reporting network and our core technology, we will improve our detection and removal capabilities even more in the upcoming months.
