How to schedule Win 10 Security Scans?

Protect yourself from online attacks that threaten your identity, your files, your system, and your financial well-being.

1 – Where do I go to change the scan schedule on my Win 10 PC?

I have opened Windows Security & explored but can’t find where to change the scan schedule.


2 – Windows Security > Settings > Security Providers > Web Protection = “No providers”

Please suggest how to fix this… plugin, add-on, 3rd party app, or what?


3 – If I don’t log in to a Microsoft or One Drive  account is my computer protected by Windows Security ?

The Windows Security Icon shows yellow triangle in bottom right Task Bar aks System Trey

It wants me to log into Microsoft (or One Drive) account for “Virus Threat” and for “Account Protection”

Must I do that for the Windows Security app to work?
(The yellow warning flag is alarming and irritating)


Thanks for any help.
