  2. 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

    .

    Let us know how that turned out for you.

  3. "SpeedUpMyPC" says that there are registry errors

    Hi Maja,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I understand your inconvenience. We will assist you with it.

    I suggest you to run System File checker and check if the issue is resolved.

    Method 1: Run SFC scan.

    System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Refer to these steps to perform a SFC scan:

    System file check (SFC) Scan and Repair System Files & DISM to fix things SFC cannot

    If the issue still persist, I suggest you to follow method 2



    Method 2: DISM



    • Open Command Prompt with administrator access.
    • Type Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    • Type Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • After the repair is complete, restart your computer and try updating now.
    If you the issue still persist, you may have to repair or reinstall the register files manually.

    Note: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you
    follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to
    view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    how to scan registry

    right click scan in windows defender?


    thanks for that.. i didn't notice the tutorial section :x

    I did the suggested registry change and it's now listed on the desktop context menu.. but all this does is ask if I want to open it, update, or start a scan... I was hoping for the option where you right click a specific file and it will have listed 'scan with windows defender' like other antivirus programs have.. MSE had it. I'll keep looking around to see if I can find it in the meantime..
