windows defender offline error

I'm trying to download and install windows defender offline to a flash drive for use on another computer. During the 4-step process, I get error 0007-8004DD1D "error formatting drive" when it tries to format the flash drive. I have tried several time using different flash drives. I manually formatted the flash drive to verify that it could be formatted. I have copied files to the drive to verify that it is OK. Help!

windows defender offline error

I had already read the tutorial. I followed it as instructed. I'm getting the error in step 3 (format flash drive) of the download and install procedure for Windows Defender Offline.

I'm trying to create this flash drive for a friend who is running Vista. I don't need a bootable version of Windows 7. The instructions say download and install on a flash drive using a clean computer. It doesn't have to be running the same OS. I am telling it to use the 64 bit version of WDO. Both his computer and mine are 64 bit. Thanks

I had tried to run as administrator. That didn't help. I will look at using one of the other options. Thanks

Once you get the other computer clean, you might try the Windows Defender Offline process on that computer just to see if there is some setting on your computer that is preventing the process from completing - perhaps your antivirus app.

Just a thought.....

Have you considered using a bootable CD/DVD vs. a USB pen drive?
