Defender Module: Threat Catalog

You can see the threats that defender is testing against

Get-MpThreatCatalog | select SeverityID, ThreatName

You get a long list like this

5 TrojanDownloader:Win32/Agent.A
4 TrojanDownloader:Win32/Holistyc
2 Dialer:Win32/EPlugin
5 Backdoor:Win32/Fxsvc
2 Adware:Win32/Networkone

This is the important one:

Get-MpThreatDetection

You want this to return nothing i.e. no threats found

You can start a scan like this:

Start-MpScan -ScanType QuickScan

A progress bar will show how things are going -  again if your machine is clean you won’t get a return
