  2. "Virus and Threat Scan" Option missing from Windows Defender

    Apologies, I misunderstood Step 5 and found the two files as mentioned and have now disabled them both alongside the "Client Interface's" option of "Enable headless UI mode". After restarting Win10 and opening Windows Defender, the issue still persists with
    "Virus and Threat Protection" Option still missing.

    I also tried the REG DELETE command for the Command Prompt and it gave me same error " system unable to find the specified registry key or value." That;s update I have regarding this issue.

    defender scans

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    This issue might occur if you have set any task scheduler for Windows Defender.

    I suggest you to delete the task for Windows defender and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Search and open Schedule tasks.

    • In the left-hand menu, open the Task Scheduler Library, then select
      Microsoft >Windows >Windows Defender.

    • Double-click Windows Defender Scheduled Scan.

    • Select the Triggers panel, then select Delete.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
