  1. DOWNLOADING AND/OR RUNNING SCANS


    If my computer enters sleep mode while either of the above are occurring, do they continue, or do they stop and then I have to either continue or start again when I open? (There is SO MUCH that I do not seem to know ... yet!)

    :)

  2. Downloading is Slow from Store.

    Hi Mihir,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    From the description, I understand that Windows store downloads slowly.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you to clear Windows Store cache and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows logo key + R.
    • Type wsreset.exe on Run window and press enter.
    • Check if issue persists.

    You may try the following steps and check:



    Step 2:

    Try to run the sfc scan and check if the Windows store downloads faster:

    Run a System File Checker (SFC) scan to check for any file corruption.
    SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and repair them.

    • Press Windows key + X, click
      Command Prompt (Admin)
      .
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      sfc /scannow
    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we’ll be glad to assist you.

  3. scanned documents

    Hello,

    By default, scans are saved in a Scans folder inside the Pictures. Here are the steps on how to get there:

    • Press Windows and type pictures
    • Click Pictures and double-click the Scans folder.

    Furthermore, we suggest that you repair your Word application by following the steps on this

    link
    .

    Let us know how that turned out for you.

    DOWNLOADING AND/OR RUNNING SCANS

    Windows 10 Defender scanning downloaded files


    Running Win10 Home 64bit on a MSI Z270-A PRO motherboard, i7-6700, 16 GB ram.
    This is a new build for me and I just installed Win10 Home and did all updates.

    When I download programs with Defender running, do I have to manually scan the file before installing the program?

    When I tried to manually scan a downloaded program using the following method, it doesn't show results of the scan:
    • Rt click the file name.
    • In the pop up menu, click "Scan with Windows Defender"
    • A window pops up showing "Full Scan", "Custom Scan" and "Windows defender offline scan", but no results of the individual file scan.
    Thanks for any ideas.
