  1. Windows Defender Offline Scan


    Hello. I have problem with my Windows Defender.


    When I try to do a Windows Defender Offline Scan, it wants reboot the PC and I accept that. Than it reboots and the blue screen, which has some box tells "Windows Defender Offline Scan", and scans for two seconds. Than it reboots. It shouldn't act like that because I remember it was so long when my runs. I tried to do a Full Scan but I felt asleep so I don't know what happened to it.


    One or two days ago I cleaned most of the empty files, caches, logs from my computer and I thought it was the cause but I didn't touch Windows folder or Microsoft's apps' or services' folders. I used Wise Registry Cleaner, Adwcleaner and CCleaner and add something to regedit:


    (I don't know why but I couldn't copy-paste so I used screenshots.)

    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.
