Strange behaviour on 1709 with Crimson 17.10.1 ?.

  • Hello,

    I'm using f.lux for a little while since (at least since Windows 1703) and my eyes enjoy it very much. Sadly after freshly installing Windows 10 1709, sooner or later strange things happen. I don't know what triggers it, but I think it is restarting instead of shutting down and manually reboot. What happens is that the Windows Defender Icon appears in the task bar and the color of the screen goes back to normal for ~10 seconds. There is no warning screen or error.

    I started to investigate this after seeing the Defender Icon reappear, because I disabled it in autostart. After two new fresh installs of Windows 10 in the last 2 days I observed that the short interruption of f.lux and the Defender Icon start to appear on the same boot. After the first time it happens, it will appear on every boot no matter what except when I uninstall f.lux. The Icon then doesn't show up, as it should.

    I know it sounds a bit crazy but that's why I currently can't use f.lux.



    • In 19041 (20H1) and 19042 (20H2), you will usually see f.lux reset by the Display Settings panel in Windows. Also, occasionally a notifier will do the same. If you do not like this, you can choose f.lux options > Always use Windows internal color table to prevent it.
