  1. Windows defender skipping file


    Earlier today, during a full system scan windows defender quarantined a file. Whilst choosing actions for the file I accidentally clicked on 'restore' instead of 'delete'. I did a full system scan again but this time windows defender skipped the file. There's nothing in the exclusions. Please help me out in getting the file detected again.

    :)

    Windows Defender isn't initializing.

    Hi Abdul,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    Sorry for the delayed reply. I suggest you to Set Windows Defender to Automatic - You can set the Windows Defender service to Automatic, Disabled or Manual. Setting it to automatic might solve the problem. Follow these
    steps:

    • Click Start > type services in the Search box > click Services in the Programs list.
    • Search for Windows defender.
    • Double-click Windows Defender, and click Automatic in the start-up box > click OK.
    Also, follow the below mentioned steps and check:

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type CMD
    • Type the following 2 commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannow

    • Close the CMD window
    Keep us posted on the status of the issue and we’ll be glad to help.
