  1. Try this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellWindowsDefender]
    “MUIVerb”=”Windows Defender”
    “Icon”=”%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\EppManifest.dll”
    @=””

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellWindowsDefenderCommand]
    @=””C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe” -scan -scantype 3 -SignatureUpdate -file “%1″ ”

    for files

    and

    this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTfoldershellWindowsDefender]
    “MUIVerb”=”Windows Defender”
    “Icon”=”%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\EppManifest.dll”
    @=””

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTfoldershellWindowsDefenderCommand]
    @=””C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe” -scan -scantype 3 -SignatureUpdate -file %1″

    for folders.

    It works for me, although the dos box isn’t very elegant.

  2. “”C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe” -Update”

    …doesn’t work! Message: “Defender-Task could not be started!

    but “””C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe” -UpdateAndQuickScan” works!

    Don’t know why!?

  3. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTFoldershellWindowsDefender]
    @=””
    “Icon”=”%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\EppManifest.dll”
    “MUIVerb”=”Scan with Windows Defender”

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTFoldershellWindowsDefenderCommand]
    @=””C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe” -scan -scantype 3 -SignatureUpdate -file “%1″”

    I Removed -scantype 3 to make this work and also changed your regedit and testet it for windows 8 Notice WD-Test
