    Hello,I recently re-installed windows on my pc, but I chose to keep all my files and apps. All the apps' data were alright, but windows defender's protection history was gone! I don't have a problem with that. But then no matter how many times my pc is scanned and actions are taken against threats, the protection history remains empty. When windows defender detects a threat, I receive a notification. But when I click on it or manually go to the protection history, it shows "No recent actions". So, I can not review the threats or take any manual action. Here's an image:How can I solve

    :)

    Clearing Windows Defender history

    Hey, what you need to do is so simple, just follow the steps below exactly in order:
    1. Turn OFF Real-time Protection
    2. Turn OFF Cloud-delivered Protection
    3. Go to this folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Service
    4. Delete the contents in the folder
    5. Turn ON Real-time Protection
    6. Turn ON Cloud-delivered Protection
    That's it... Now check protection History, it's empty.
    Done!

    Windows defender protection history is missing

    Hi, have you had any other help yet?

    I have another suggestion, check under filter to see what’s set, if there’s a show all then select that.

    See if anything is listed under here:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Service

    Defender will automatically remove entries after 30 days anyway so unless you’re checking regularly there may be 0 entries shown due to this.
