    offline scan


    I have Windows 1909 with Defender.
    When I run the offline scan, it disappears when done and I cannot fine the results.
    I looked in event viewer but I am not skilled enough to know where to go. One place seemed right but it was not intelligible to the average user.
    Could someone please tell me if there is a place to find results or does it only show results if malware is detected?

    :)

    Defender Periodic Scanning or Offline Scanning?

    That link does suggest it's useful to use Defender offline scanning in addition to periodic scanning and a third party real time anti virus (e.g. Kaspersky).

    offline scan by win defender

    Hi,

    To further assist you with your concern with Windows Defender, follow the steps below:

    • Open the Run window by pressing Window + R button.
    • Then type services.msc and hit "Enter".
    • Look for Windows defender service in the list and right click on it and select start.
    • Once Windows defender is opened try to do the offline scan on that window.

    Let us know how it goes.
