way to get the results of the last scheduled scan

Teemo Tang 821 Reputation points

So with get-mpcomputerstatus (sample results below) is there any way to tell if the scheduled scan came back clean or if there were any infected files detected? I can see the last scheduled scan was 2/23/20, is there anyway to verify a clean result?

    Welcome to our new Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    Firstly, each of these properties provide you with information about the status of Windows Defender.

    Let's take a look at some of them:

    AMEngineVersion: version of the antimalware engine

    NISEngineVersion: version of the network inspection system engine

    AMServiceEnabled: activation of the antimalware service

    AMProductVersion: antimalware client version

    AMServiceVersion: antimalware service version

    AntispywareEnabled: antispyware protection activation status

    AntispywareSignatureLastUpdated: threat definitions' creation date

    AntispywareSignatureVersion: antivirus signatures version

    AntivirusSignatureVersion: antispyware signatures version

    NISSignatureVersion: network inspection system signatures version

    AntivirusEnabled: antivirus protection activation status

    AntivirusSignatureLastUpdated: date and time of last update for the antivirus signatures

    FullScanAge: number of days since the last system's full scan

    FullScanEndTime: end date and time of the last full scan of the system

    FullScanStartTime: start date and time of the last full scan of the system

    NISEnabled: network inspection system activation status

    NISSignatureLastUpdated: date and time of last update for the network inspection system's signatures

    QuickScanAge: number of days since the last quick scan of the system

    QuickScanEndTime: end date and time of the last quick scan of the system

    QuickScanStartTime: start date and time of the last quick scan of the system

    RealTimeProtectionEnabled: real-time protection activation status

    Besides, if you want to verify a clean result, you could perform a system scan and there are two cmdlets that can be used to perform a system scan: Start-MpScan and Start-MpWDOScan.

    More specific details please refer to the following Microsoft link:

    Hope can help you.Have a nice day!

    you should use Get-MpThreatDetection, this will not tell you the last scheduled scan result, but will give you the threats detected on the computer (even if it was detected by realtime scan for example)

    Best regards
