Windows 10: Windows Defender Offline Scan in Windows 10
>>Thank you for replying, Brink.
If I click it once nothing happens. If I click it more than once, red letters say that something is wrong and to try later. DISM health and SFC are ok. I am missing some setting somewhere. The laptop runs fine offline. I have run MBAM, Defender and Trend Micro. All is updated.
It's possible that Trend Micro may be blocking it from running causing the error.

Thank you, Brink but I only used Trend Micro to see if I had malware Defender and MBAM were not picking up. It is not usually in my system.

I will keep this page bookmarked for further use. I imaged back to Feb. and updated again.
Now Defender runs by clicking the button as it should.
Before it just said in red that something is broken and to try later. I am finding the same red warning in the Windows forum where they told me they are having issues. I wonder if they are related.

I run a scan but as soon as I have rebooted and within an hour or so it asks me again? I receive the notification in the taskbar and Windows Defender turns orange and states I am unprotected. So far I have completed 3 clean scans today but after a...
I believe it's called adding it to the context menu.. I saw a registry hack for Windows 8 but i'm not sure how to do it in Windows 10.. I got used to using MSE in Windows 7 so now i'm lost not being able to right click a file to scan it...
I have set windows defender to scan every Wednesday at 8 A.M., which it does, but it always wants to scan at 3 A.M. every day too. Can some one help me?
Having recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I had a question about using Windows Defender.
I've come to understand that Windows Defender automatically scans in the background every now and then. However, one of the...
If I download an exe file from someplace, does Defender scan the file immediately for possible problems or do I have to request the scan?
