Hello forum,

This is my first post and unfortunately not my last!

I use a Lenovo laptop usually with my Chrome browser (suddenly, Microsoft Edge decided not to connect to the internet, but that's for another time...hmmm) and usually access the cmd. prompt the usual ways,

1) right-click on lower left corner

2) windows + x

Last night, up pops the ShellCommands instead. I went to every setting possible,looked within this forum to no avail. I would like to fix this asap as this would seem to be a security risk...a lot of activity this morning within the task manager.

Also...I am denied access to the ShellCommand prompt, non-admin too.

 

Any help to change it back before more damage is done would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks friends
