    Windows Defender Offline won't run


    Hi


    I have a PC that I suspect may have picked up some Malware.

    When I select to run Defender Offline the PC reboots, the progress bar for Windows Defender Online appears for a few seconds and then the PC proceeds to reboot to Windows 10. I believe therefore that the Defender run is being interrupted or failing to start properly.

    [TrendMicro internet does not pick up any issues during a full scan but as one of our payment accounts has been hacked I want to make sure there is nothing hidden. Hence my desire to run the Defender Offline scan]


    Any advice gratefully received

    Ian

    :)

    Windows Defender Offline for Windows 10

    Tried this suggestion and it did not work. Tried to boot from USB with Windows Defender Offline transferred from a safe computer. Would not boot from USB. Message "Secure Boot Violation, Invalid Signature Detected, Check secure boot policy in Setup"
    Any suggestions on next steps for a Windows 10 compatible version of Windows Defender Offline?

    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.
