Windows Defender not removing detected threat

Found a “severe” threat on a recent scan. Under “choose actions” I select “Remove” and then hit “start action.” Nothing happens. I run a scan again and the threat is still there, as well as another message that says “remediation incomplete”. Wtf? Should I just delete the flagged file myself?
