    Windows Defender Crashes my PC

    Windows Defender crashes my PC after running a full scan for about 15 minutes.

    Quick scan is fine, updating definitions is fine. I am on Windows 10. Worked perfect on Windows 7.

    You may wish to run a SFC to verify there are no corrupted files. Option 3 is recommended, but there are other options you can use.

    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note
    If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time. Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command up to 3 times with Fast Startup turned off and restarting the computer after each time to completely fix everything that it's able to.

    If not, then run the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command to repair any component store corruption, restart the PC afterwards, and try the sfc /scannow command again.

How can you change the time when Widows Defender auto scans your PC? When I had 8.1 it ran about 2AM. That was OK. Now in 10 it runs about 4 or 5PM. That is when I use my PC most. I looked in Task Scheduler, but I can't find it.
