    I fixed this problem by making a task from scratch in the Task Scheduler Library folder in Task Scheduler. Just set it up to run "C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe" Scan -Schedulejob, and works every time I tested it. Is there any problems with doing it this way?

    No but you should disable the auto maintenance scan task otherwise it will try to run as well. Find that one in Task Scheduler Library>Microsoft>Windows>Windows Defender. Third task.

    I had to do the same thing - create a scheduled task to perform a scan. Its working ok.

    This was reported quite a while ago. If you want to reliably run a Defender scan in Win 10 AU you need to create a task. As I said above, if you did create a manual task you should disable the automatic maintenance task otherwise you will have scans running too often,

    But the reason I created the scheduled task is because automatic maintenance is not working. So I won't have tasks running too often.
    If auto maintenance worked I wouldn't bother with a manual task.

    It will work, but only if the specific conditions are met.

    It does not work. Refer post #46.
    The other 3 auto tasks run, but, the auto task for scheduled maintenance does not run.

    I worked on this issue on another forum and know exactly what the issue is. If you've got it working how you want that's what counts. But I am fairly confident that the auto scan would run if given the right conditions. And my advice to disable the auto maintenance scan if you have created a manual task is good.
