Using Windows over the years has proved that not having antivirus combo with the operating system can be a night mare for a heavy internet user. As relieving as it is when Windows Defender catches a spyware, virus or any of its nemesis it is very unpleasant when you have to see the list any time you visit the history.
Be it as that is what it was made for. In this video you get to know how to remove history from time to time when you don’t need that history.
I recall on older versions of Windows Defender (now Windows Security Center) that you could clear the threat history. I have found no such way in current versions of Windows Security Center. Is there a way to do this? I am on Windows 10 1903.
Delete folder Service C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Service .
Follow the tutorial below if your version of Windows 10 does not allow you the option above.
After deleting the folder Service, off and turn on (OFF>ON) Real-Time protection and Cloud protection.
