Windows 10: Can only run a quick scan

Discus and support Can only run a quick scan in AntiVirus, Firewalls and System Security to solve the problem; When I try to run a complete or custom scan neither one finishes, my computer shuts down.

  1. Can only run a quick scan


    When I try to run a complete or custom scan neither one finishes, my computer shuts down. Is there anyway I can run either of these without computer shutting down?

    Thanks

    Windows Defender - Quick Scan

    Windows defender no longer offers a quick scan option.

    My options are:

    • Scan
    • Advanced Scan
    • Full Scan
    • Custom Scan
    • Windows Defender Offline scan
    Whichever option I check, the scan will need to run for hours to complete.

    Is a quick scan available?

    How do I restore this feature?

    Quick Scan?

    I firmly believe that this is an error. Add this to the 1809 bug list.
    Try forcing another Quick Scan and post back.

    Thanks. *Smile

  4. Can only run a quick scan

    Does Windows Defender Quick scan interrupt Advanced scan?

    Before I create a System Image, I run an Advanced scan using Windows Defender, and it typically takes about an hour and the Scan history lists about 4,000,000 files scanned. However, often I see only about 40,000 files scanned, what I get from a Quick scan.

    I can think of two explanations that might account for this:

    1. The Advanced scan completes, but a Quick scan starts afterwards and wipes out evidence that that the Advanced scan occurred (unless presumably some problem was found).

    2. The Advanced scan is interrupted and a Quick scan runs.

    Are there other possibilities?

    The 2 possibilities listed above are both unsatisfactory because I can tell if an Advanced scan was completed. If an Advanced scan was just completed, there is no reason that a Quick scan should be run automatically.
