    Current Threats: Last Scan not updated after Defender Scheduled Scan


    I've scheduled a Defender quick scan for 0900 each day. It runs OK taking a couple of minutes.

    When I look in Settings / Windows Security / Virus & threat protection the Last scan date & time are not updated. They seem only to be updated when I click Quick scan on that page.

    Is this normal behaviour? If so it's a nuisance as it means the only way to check that it has run is to check Task Scheduler's history log.

    Also is there any way of - simply - getting a Full scan schedule set up?

    Can you tell me how exactly did you schedule a quick scan? I can see in task scheduler only task for Defender full scan

    This Thread is nearly 3 years old.

    I suggest that you create your own Thread in AntiVirus, Firewalls and System Security.

    I am sorry, but Windows Defender is much older then 3 years, so why does it matter how old is this thread?? The basic functionality hasn't changed since, so I don't want to create unnecessary mess by making new threads about the same topic which comes up in google search.

    BTW I have already found the solution (by asking ChatGPT), so when other ppl search for it and find this forum the solution is to create new scheduled task in folder Microsoft / Windows Defender with program "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe" and parameters -Scan -ScanType 1. Running as SYSTEM with highest privileges

    detailed guide is here
