    Windows Defender Antivirus Service service terminated in Event Viewer


    Hello,
    I have problem with Windows Defender on Windows 10 Home 20H2 version with all updates installed. I'm still getting this error in Event Viewer:


    The Windows Defender Antivirus Service service terminated with the following error:
    General access denied error

    Event 7023 Service Control Manager


    I already tried to use sfc /scannow and DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth but it didn't help at all. Windows Defender still unexpectedly turns off during normal use. It can startup on boot and then unexpectedly turn off with this error in Event Viewer.

    Anyone know what's going on here?

    :)

  2. 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***
