  1. Location of Windows Defender events saved in Event Viewer


    In this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...virus/troubleshoot-windows-defender-antivirus. According to the the mentioned link the generated events should be displayed at the following location in the Event Viewer:- Application and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows/Windows Defender Antivirus/Operational.
    But on performing actions, Events are getting stored at this location in the event viewer:- Application and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows/Windows Defender/Operational.

    How can I get Microsoft Windows Defender Antivirus folder at this location:- Application and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows in the event viewer. So that events start getting stored at this location:- Application and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows/Windows Defender Antivirus/Operational.


    ***Original title: Microsoft Defender Antivirus***

    Event Viewer problem with latest Windows Build 1607

    After installing the new Windows build 1607, the Event Viewer stopped recording events under Diagnostic Performance. (Before 1607 I checked the files located under Windows.old dated 9/23/2016 and located this file which indeed did have a list of events
    recorded.)

    Since the initial 1607 download there have been two new builds automatically installed on my laptop.



    The last step in an automatic download is the RESTART. Prior to my rebooting, I checked the Diagnostic Performance and for sure, these had the list of events.



    Rebooting by me, causes the Diagnostic Performance errors to disappear.

    As suggested earlier I have run the SFC/DISM commands with no errors reported.

    Any Ideas?

    As you have mentioned, you have performed a repair installation on the computer and you see Event 508, 510 and 533 in Event Viewer.



    I would like to inform that if you see any critical error in Event Viewer, please share the event logs with us to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps. Please follow the steps mentioned below to share the event logs:



    1. Press Windows + X from the keyboard, select
      Event Viewer.
    2. Expand Windows Logs from the left pane and select
      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside
      Error and click OK.
    4. Now, look for a critical Error in the list and note down the message/information from the
