    Windows defender error


    Since I ran a computer game today, Windows Defender has gone crazy!
    Every 10 it show notification on the right side of the screen and in 'history/all detected items'
    it's full of 'VirTool:Win32/Ceelnject.CX'

    Windows Defender encountered the following error:
    Error code 0x80508023. The program could not find the malware and other potentially unwanted software on this computer.

    Category:
    Tool

    Description: This program is used to create viruses, worms or other malware.

    Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

    Items:
    file:C:\Windows\Temp\tmp00004b6f\tmp0000b70e->(UPX)file:C:\Windows\Temp\tmp00004b6f\tmp0000b711->(UPX)


    I've been searching the internet and found this:
    "You have been severely infected and might possibly end
    up having to reformat your pc."

    Although the thread has been resolved, it says:
    "Note: the above code was created specifically for this
    user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could
    damage the workings of your system.
    "
    I'm tired of reinstalling windows, so I am asking for solution to this.
    I've scanned C:\Windows\Temp with BitDefender and now I'm scanning entire HDD

    P.S. That thread I found might not be like my problem, as it is referring to Microsoft Antimalware on XP.
    But better safe than sorry, and notifications reeeeeeeally annoy me...

    194 malware entires - out of those, likely that at least one or more are persistent and will return, especially since they couldn't be handled initially

    Defender will not save the custom option as a default consequently I cannot automate this in a command line. Is there any way to save this custom setting?
