    Windows Defender won't list Excluded files, File Locations, etc..etc


    Hi all,

    I have selected certain file types / folders and locations in Windows Defender on Windows 10 that were added to the exclusions lists...

    Previously I could go to Windows Defender and see what files, folders or extensions I had excluded but now they have disappeared....

    All I see is the add buttons which work as intended when I want to add a folder etc etc....
    But then they are not listed anywhere so that I can remember what I have excluded or not....

    Can some one please help me so that they are visible again, is there a setting in the registry that needs to be fixed?

    This is what I should see where, below the red arrows I should see the excluded files/folders including their path etc etc [see image below]

    but I see nothing..

    Yet if i go to the registry as indicated below...

    File and file location exclusions are stored in the registry key below.

    *Arrow HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Exclusions\Paths

    File type exclusions are stored in the registry key below.

    *Arrow HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Exclusions\Extensions

    Processes exclusions are stored in the registry key below.

    *Arrow HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Exclusions\Processes

    they are all listed there....?

    I have to say that windows defender is excluding folders/files and etc etc, that I have selected during its scans, but I cant see the excluded items in the Windows Defender as per image of my Exclusions section below...

    Unable to Remove Exclusions from Windows Defender

    Thank you for posting back. If you trust a file, file type, folder, or a process that Windows Defender Antivirus has detected as malicious, you can stop Windows Defender Antivirus from alerting you or blocking the program by adding the file to
    the exclusion list. It seems that it was added automatically. We suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings and select Update & security.
    • Click Windows Defender.
    • Look for Exclusions and select Add an exclusion.
    • Navigate to the file, folder, or process, and select Exclude this file.

    If the steps provided did not work, we recommend that you boot your device to
    Safe Mode
    and redo the process.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Exclude Windows Defender from Antivirus

    Defender AntiVirus

    There are 4 options under Defender. Two refer to AntiVirus; AntiVirus Network Inspection Service & AntiVirus Services. Under Startup Type these two are listed as manual and the Status column said Inspection Service is running. When I clicked on the Start
    button in Properties, I got an immediate message: "Win.. Def.. Anti.. Serv.. on local comp.. started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."
