Windows 10: Hi Guys and Gals---Defender Offline Solved

    Hi Guys and Gals---Defender Offline

    I am trying to get Windows Defender Offline Scan---I have tried searching online and am told it is found included with Windows 10 and where to find it under settings. Well I can't seem to find it. I have used it before with great luck. I see the ones that are talked about on line use an ISO file to burn to disk. I don't remember it to be in that format when I used it on my old laptop.
    Can anyone help me find it or tell me where I can download it,

    Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays
    (see that wasn't hard to say)

    Thanks Tommy
