Windows Defender Warning is Trojan

My computer booted up as usual this morning, but I had a Windows Defender Warning to review a harmful or potentially unwanted software from my pc, I know that it is fake as there is no small tab at the bottom of my screen to minimise it and it sits on top of every GUI including the internet, I have not touched it as I know I have a different virus removal tool, it is definitely a trojan that got through, I am running a scan now to clean my PC, I realise also that in order not to touch it I must restart my PC after the scan, it will be gone afterwards, So DO NOT CLICK ON IT!!!! run a scan and then restart your pc and all should be fine.
