  1. Windows Defender Run New Advanced Scan Crashes To Desktop


    Up until a month ago, never had a problem running a full scan. After last big update when I open WD and select "Run New Advanced Scan" it crashes To desktop. I can run quick scan no problem.

    Windows 10 64-bit on desktop computer.

    I've run sfc /scannow with no issues detected.

    Similar to this thread Windows Defender Anti-Virus Options disappears [CU/ 1703]

    But I'm not running another antivirus program.

    In my event viewer I have the error: "unable to start a dcom server"
    happened while starting this command C:\\FileCoAuth.exe - Embedding

    I also ran windows safety scanner and nothing found. Any ideas?

    :)

  3. defender scans

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    This issue might occur if you have set any task scheduler for Windows Defender.

    I suggest you to delete the task for Windows defender and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Search and open Schedule tasks.

    • In the left-hand menu, open the Task Scheduler Library, then select
      Microsoft >Windows >Windows Defender.

    • Double-click Windows Defender Scheduled Scan.

    • Select the Triggers panel, then select Delete.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
