    Error Code 0x8004cc01 when trying to start Windows defender offline

    I have downloaded Windows defender offline on my system from the Microsoft website. My system is Dell which was upgraded to Windows 8 from Windows 7 about 6 months back. When I try to start Windows defender offline this is the error message that I get:
    Windows Defender Offline cannot be started. Error: Unable to detect a Windows system drive. This could be due to missing drivers, and encrypted drive or a corrupted Windows installation. Error Code 0x8004cc01"
    Can somebody help?

    Hello there !!!

    yes, you are not able to run the window defender because
    there might be the improper installation of the setup in the offline mode.
    or it might happened that the window defender application got
    corrupted during download or the installation process.
    therefore you are getting these issue.

    so what i suggest you that,download the defender from
    http:\\www.filehippo.com
    it will work.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
