In my case, deleting the DetectionHistory folder was not necessary. After temporarily disabling Defender and
deleting the file C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\mpenginedb.db, the crashing history issue was solved.(y)

Looks like the problem is back for me since i reinstall Windows some months ago.
Still don't know what it crashes nor why Microsoft can't fix that <.<
It's because i use sandboxed Defender?

Yep, WD UI very useless.

Start CMD with admin and;

del "%systemdrive%\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\History\Service\DetectionHistory\*"

If still same, start CMD from troubleshoot and;

del "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\mpenginedb.db"

cool advice, man. thanks, it worked great!
