  1. Items skipped during scan


    I have recently been receiving the following message when I run the defender quick/full scans.

    "Items skipped during scan.

    The windows defender antivirus scan skipped an item due to exclusion or network scanning settings."

    I can't think of any recent changes I have made to my computer.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    :)

    New Defender Platform 4.18.2003.4-0 - Items skipped during scan Alert

    Just got the latest Defender Platform 4.18.2003.4-0 on both machines, and both received this new message about skipping an item during a Quick Scan 'scan skipped an item due to exclusion or network scanning settings'.

    I have no exclusions!

    And, I have never made any changes to my network scanning settings that I know of. Everything under WD's 'Firewall and network protection' is default 'ON'

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Further testing on a Private Network, I thought maybe it was either having 'Network File Sharing' turned off or not having OneDrive running but toggling them made no difference.


    Is there some new Network Scan Setting?

  4. Items skipped during scan

    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.
