Hello nasdaq advised me to post my issue in this forum.
I have two issues with my laptop. The computer is running Windows 8.1.
First, I get a Windows Defender error 0x80073b01 error when I try to start Windows defender error when I try to turn on Windows Defender by clicking on the "Turn on Now" button for "Spyware and unwanted software protection" area but when I try to turn on Windows Defender by clicking on "Turn on Now" for the "Virus Protection" section, it opens the "C:/Windows/system32" folder.
The second issue I have is that Windows Update is not working stating that it is "Disabled by the System Administrator" This is a personal computer and my sons account is an Administrator account.
