    Corrupt MP scheduled scan Windows Defender


    On opening the Task Scheduler I get a message " Task MP scheduled Scan. Task image is corrupt or has been tampered with ". I look in Library, Microsoft, Windows Defender and the Task MP Scheduler is not there. Real time protection appears to be working and I can do a manual scan through the control panel. Can I download a replacement Windows Defender file or can I fix what I have now without using Refresh or Recovery.

    As an afterthought, is it possible to recreate the task in the library and please provide a snapshot of what it may look like
