SYNTAX

Start-MpWDOScan [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Start-MpWDOScan cmdlet starts a Windows Defender offline scan on a computer.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Start an offline scan

PS C:\>Start-MpWDOScan

This command starts a Windows Defender offline scan on the computer where you run the command. This command causes the computer to start in Windows Defender offline and begin the scan.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.
