  • You will have to contact support for help fixing this error.  It is not a PowerShell issue.  It appears that Windows Defender has been removed or a conflicting program ahs been installed.

  • Hi Maxxxwell,

    >>C:\Program Files \Windows Defender\SymSrv.dll

    The SymSrv.dll file should be a part of Windows Defender, if your server has some third-party security software or Windows Defender has been disabled or damaged, this file is missing or ineffective, then the error message appears.

    Please try to copy the DLL from any other Windows 10/Server 2016 machine (or search through the “C:\Windows\WinSxS\” folder on the same machine and copy it from there) to “C:\Program Files\Windows Defender” and enable Windows Defender feature.

    For more details, please refer the the following link:
