Hi, Joseph.


1. Restore a missing service

  • Download SecurityHealthService and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click on the file, allow the information to be merged (Yes) and restart the computer.

2. Fix the registry

  • Copy the contents of the code below to Notepad (To open Notepad, type Notepad in the Search area and select it when the specific item appeared).
  • Make sure to leave an empty line at the end of the script.
  • Name the file as fix.reg
  • Change the Save as Type to All Files and Save it on the desktop.
  • Once saved, double click on the fix.reg file and merge it into the Registry.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender]



3. Run FSS

  • Right click on the FSS icon and run it as administrator, as you did before.
  • Make sure all the options are checked.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) on your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste the log's content to your next reply.

Good Morning,   Not sure if it is summer where you are, but I can tell you, it is here - 82 degree by 9 AM.


 Step 1 went well - no hick ups.

 Step 2. not so good.

  The last line of your script is "Start"=dword:00000002.

  Copied and pasted the entire script into notepad, Ensured an extra line followed your last line of script.  When I rain it, the following warning was returned.


Cannot import c:\Users\HP Pavilion\Desktop\fix.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the registry.  Some keys are open by the system or other processes, or you have insufficient privileges to perform this operation.


  Went on to step 3, as it is a report.
