Okay I did that and after Local Group Memberships it says *Administrators *Users
So I assume I should have administrator rights, which I would expect as I live alone and am the only one to use the laptop!
However when I press the windows and I, then update and security, then windows security; under virus and threat protection it says, no action needed. However I keep getting a window which pops up shortly after switching the laptop on telling me to switch on virus and threat protection! So if I now click on virus and threat protection again it says no action needed. If I click on Manage settings Real-Time Protection is off and greyed out. Cloud Delivered Protection is off and greyed out. Automatic Sample Submision is off and greyed out and Tamper protection is off and greyed out! Above Tamper Protection it says in red, This setting is managed by your administrator! I don't have an administrator, I'm the administrator! Below this I have Controlled Folder Access and if I click on manage it is also off and greyed out and it says in red, controlled folder access requires turning on real time protection which I can't do. Could I have been hacked? If so can I uninstall Windows Security completely and reinstall?
By the way when the window pops up after I switch the laptop on telling me to turn on virus protection it says click here. When I do I get the following message; Page not available. Your IT administrator has limited access to some areas of this app, and the item you tried to access is not available. Contact the IT helpdesk for more information!
