Defender History?

Posted: 07-25-2008, 09:38 PM
My computer scans nightly at 2 a.m. but when I go to the History dropdown
there no results given. When I do open Defender, it does always show that a
complete scan was done the night before at 2 a.m.

Any ideas or suggestions anyone may have to offer would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks N Advance

Windows Defender as like many other security applications sets it course to
scan the system it would only give a result of such if "something was
found/deleted/quarantined or missed to clean" or deemed critical. 2 scan
available for you is 1. Manual Scan ( your triggered it ), 2 scheduled scan
which runs only at the time you scheduled 2:00 am and 3 realtime scan which
acts upon your actions ( opening infected USB / Folders with infection or
such equivalent ).

prompts would appear if indeed a detection was made and action taken against
the malware other than that don’t worry your system is clean as per windows
defender.
