Windows Defender Scan History

Recommended Posts



I have been using CCleaner for almost two years now.


For about 3 months, I have supplemented my spyware software to

also include Windows Defender.


Through Windows file cleaning, CCleaner deletes current scan history info

that Window's Defender uses to keep track of the last day a scan was



These folders are cleared through CCleaner:


C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Results\Quick\*


C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Results\Resource\*


Almost every time after cleaning, I get notice from Windows Defender that I

have not run a scan in a few days (which is not correct).


It would be nice to not have to re-run a scan on Defender every time I run

a CCleaner Clean.


Any way to limit deletion of Defender's files for prior dates/days?


Or, could there be a settings option to allow folders to be indicated to not

be cleaned during cleaning.


Again, this is through Window's Cleaning, and not Application's Cleaning (even

though Defender is listed under Applications and not Windows).
