    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    This issue might occur if you have set any task scheduler for Windows Defender.

    I suggest you to delete the task for Windows defender and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Search and open Schedule tasks.

    • In the left-hand menu, open the Task Scheduler Library, then select
      Microsoft >Windows >Windows Defender.

    • Double-click Windows Defender Scheduled Scan.

    • Select the Triggers panel, then select Delete.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.

    Windows Defender Scheduled Scan

    How do I get Windows Defender Scheduled Scan back in Task Scheduler?

    I go: Schedule tasks > Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows
    > Windows Defender.

    I had been messing around with the scheduler trying to make it work properly. Unfortunately, in the process I believe that I deleted the whole task (when I thought I was just deleting its properties and triggers).

    Is there any way to get Windows Defender Scheduled Scan back in the list of tasks?

    Thanks!
