Using Monero GUI Wallet in Simple Mode, which was apparently supposed to give me immediate Send/Receive functionality.

The Daemon Sync started off with "Daemon blocks remaining: 0" and has remained on that for hours, while still saying "Synchronizing". I restarted the Wallet & Daemon, but nothing changed.

Any advice on how to get the Daemon Synchronized?

Additional Info: 3.5TB of Free Space on HD. BitDefender Total Security "Potentially malicious application detected" and "Infected file detected", however I restored all the quarantined items, e.g. "The item D:\Monero\Monero GUI Wallet\monero-blockchain-prune.exe was restored at user request."

  • What do the status bars in the left bottom indicate?

With Bitdefender Total Security you will need to set the Firewall rules as well as the antivirus exemption, as it will likely be blocking the connection.
