    I've just installed Photoshop CC and Viber in my laptop and windows defender blocks the folder. I don't actually mind if it's blocked or what, there's no changes when I still use the softwares/app. My real concern is that I can't seem to erase the history from windows defender.



    I already tried deleting the files inside C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History but it doesn't work. The list just keeps piling up. I just want to delete the Protection history, that's all.



    Anyone know how?

    Clearing Windows Defender history

    Hey, what you need to do is so simple, just follow the steps below exactly in order:
    1. Turn OFF Real-time Protection
    2. Turn OFF Cloud-delivered Protection
    3. Go to this folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Service
    4. Delete the contents in the folder
    5. Turn ON Real-time Protection
    6. Turn ON Cloud-delivered Protection
    That's it... Now check protection History, it's empty.
    Done!

  3. Unable to clear protection history

    I am using Windows 10 Home build 1909 and I am unable to clear the Windows Security Protection History...

    I have tried...

    Open Event viewer and find Log "Operational" under Application and service logs / Microsoft / Windows / Windows defender

    Right click on it and select clear log.

    and

    Delete folder Service C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Service .

    After deleting the folder Service, off and turn on (OFF>ON) Real-Time protection and Cloud protection.

    And neither suggestion works. Are there any other suggestions to clear the protection history

    Microsoft needs to reinstall the clear button.

    I have entries because I had Controlled folder access turned on by accident... I have it off now.
