    Windows Defender's files are missing after rolling back from Windows 10 1803 to 1709


    Hello,

    Since the IME and some other programs do not work properly in Windows 10 1803, I rolled back to 1709, on which they work well while I noticed that the Windows Defender does not run as usual. The service cannot start and it returns an error 2 showing that the associated files are missing. After checking the linked folder it has been confirmed--the folder is TOTALLY EMPTY!! I wonder whether there is a way to reinstall or repair Windows Defender for this situation except reinstalling the whole Windows system--it shouldn't have been such a complicated process.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 Defender - How to make it default to task bar?

    Using Windows 10 and currently I am using Defender for anti virus. For whatever reason Windows Defender does not show up in the task bar unless I search for the program or right click and scan a file/folder. Is there a way to force Defender to show up in the task bar at start up?
