  1. Windows defender protection history is missing


    Hi guys,

    i need your help, as i am having an issue here since around 2 weeks ago.

    when you go to the Windows Defender --> Virus & Threat Protection --> Ransomware Protection --> Block history is missing and showing blank page. Same is if you go to Windows Defender --> Virus & Threat Protection --> and under Current Threats --> Protection History - same - showing blank page with no filters and so on.

    I have tried to reset it, tried dism and nothing helped.


    check the screenshots:


    This is the current missing protection history:

    And this is how it should be - on a different PC - same configuration, same levels of updates, same settings:

    Thank you

    :)

    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!

  3. Clear Windows Security Center (Defender) Protection History

    While Windows Defender can be configured via Powershell cmdlet "Set-MpPreference" thus changing Group Policy and Registry settings to purge after 1 day minimum, however, this fails to accomplish the objective which is to clear the protection history manually and/or instantly as this topic suggests.

    I tried this with no success... even tried rebooting to make sure at no avail.

    This is the procedure that does indeed work.
    I previously had tried deleting the folder before with no success but turning off, then on said protections is what apparently allows this to work. Thank you and the OP "LiNer2" from windows forum for this.

    To anyone who wishes to try this and you don't happen to have any current protection history...
    you can utilize the "EICAR Anti-Malware Testfile" to check the solution.

    Windows defender protection history is missing

    Windows defender real time protection cant be turned on.

    Go to Security and Maintenance, look in 'Security' and see what program is listed under Virus Protection. Windows Defender will not be enabled and functioning properly if there is a program other than Windows Defender listed.

    You tried all suggestions in my previous post and Windows Defender “real time protection”
    still will not turn on?

    Did you try everything suggested in Problems
    starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
    to include (but not limited to) running SFC, scanning for malware and running the software removal tools for any security software (AVG,
    McAfee, Norton, whatever) that may have previously been on the computer followed by a reboot? List of
    anti-malware product removal tools
