Micosoft Defender keep “removing” threats after every restart but shows no protection history

Microsoft Defender is removing a threat every time I run a scan after a restart.

Protection history shows nothing.

I got worried at first so I ran MSERT, Kaspersky and Malwarebytes and all came back clean.

I started getting the “Virus” about a week ago but, I haven’t downloaded anything for ~1 Month besides some PNGs, Malwarebytes and MSERT. I’m thinking it’s something wrong with Windows Defender? I found a post with the same problem posted 9 days ago [https://www.reddit.com/r/antivirus/comments/ndrjw0/windows_defender_states_it_took_action_against/](https://www.reddit.com/r/antivirus/comments/ndrjw0/windows_defender_states_it_took_action_against/)

My computer has been running perfect so I’m not worried right now, just want some reassurance

Edit: I don’t have Intel Computing Improvement Program like the other post so it can’t be that.

Yeah even with Windows Defender that picked up a old crypto miner I had in one of my files I downloaded years ago, it removed it and doesn’t show any history that it did so its not only you. If you ran all those things and it came back clean, you’re most likely to be fine.
