In MSAS, you could disable auto scanning and it would not pester you with tray icons. All it would do that once you open MSAS, it juz shows a warning label at "Last Scan". However, in Windows Def, it creates a tray icon.
Daily unattended scanning is part of Defender's overall protection package. MS designed it as such for the novice user who puts little effort into regular maintenace. Thus, the scan kicks in without input from the user at a time when they are not using their system to help ensure it stays clean. The orignially MSAS beta was designed similiarly.
What you want is a stand alone scanning feature that only scans on your demand so perhaps Defender is not for you.
