    Help with Windows Defender


    I just had my Windows reinstalled because I kept getting AdobeIPC Broker application errors (and others like AGCInvoker). I've read about guides to fix these errors, but I also read from a reddit user of his own experience and only a clean reinstallation solving it for him. So I opted for the reinstall.

    After the reinstall, I got my laptop back with security threats from Defender for: Virus:Win64/Expiro.MG!bit and Virus:Win32/Floxif.H.

    The affected items are from trusted folders :
    file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Maintenance Service\maintenanceservice.exe
    service: MozillaMaintenance

    file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\87.0.664.41\elevation_service.exe
    regkey: HKLM\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\TYPELIB\{C9C2B807-7731-4F34-81B7-44FF7779522B}\1.0

    service: MicrosoftEdgeElevationService

    My Defender says it's up to date.

    So is this really a virus? I have to install some software I use for work but Defender blocks it after detecting the Expiro or Floxif threats when I try to run it.
    Are these really viruses? I've chosen "quarantine" on some threats and "clean" on others just to see the difference, but every time I do a quick scan, it comes back up.

    Would really appreciate some input on this.

    Windows Defender Not On

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.



    I would suggest you to try the below methods and check:

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to run virus scan to make sure the computer is free from virus.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove virus, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

    Microsoft Safety Scanner Download - Windows security



    Method 2:

    Turn the Defender on. Follow the below steps:

    • In search, type Defender.
    • Now make the option ON by moving the slider accordingly.


    Method 3: Run the SFC.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Select “Run as Administrator”.
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.
    Now check for the issue.



    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
