Windows Defender Antivirus

I am using Windows 10 version 1703 now. I can only open Windows Defender Security Center, but I can not open Windows Defender Antivirus. I go to Start to Search Windows Defender Antivirus, but it's not found. Can someone help to fix this ? 

Thanks !!!

Hi,

The Windows Defender Antivirus has been merged into the Windows Defender Security Center. You'll find it under the Virus & Threat Protection option.

Once you click it, you'll have the option to run scans, change the settings, and check for updates.

Let us know if you need more help with Windows Defender.

Right-click on the desktop and select New > Shortcut.

 

Then copy and paste this line for the “location”:

 

"C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe"

 

Now right-click on the shortcut and choose “Pin to taskbar”.

You can click on the Ask a Question link on the upper-right corner of this page and then tell us what operating system you have on your laptop; and what security app is already installed on it. And then let us know about any problems you’re having with the installed security app, and about any questions you might have.
