2 Windows Defender notification icons running at startup?

Hello-,

This is a fairly new PC and i'm not sure if I ever noticed this before but anyone know or see this before? 2 Windows Defender instances running at startup?

I installed Emsisoft about a month ago I don't believe that wouldn't have anything to do with it. I only have one Defender icon running also...

If I right click on either entry they both point to this file same location: MSASCuiL


Any ideas why 2 show up under startup?


Thx

Only one entry shows now. Possibly a reboot a SFC corrected it.
