I have this warning in my Settings windows for Security. I heard it had something to do with an anti-virus conflict with Defender and add'l AV software but find I cannot enable Defender. I have tried every posting solution regarding Group Policy Editor and am still stuck with this throttled setting. Does anyone have the solution, please?

If you have no antivirus program installed and Windows Defender still not enabled than use my batch script to enable Windows Defender.

Thanks for your reply, FreeBooter. Your instructions are quite thorough and detailed, but quite frankly way beyond my abilities to handle. I'll try to get an IT guy to help me follow it.

Ran both the Enable and Disable scripts... unfortunately nothing has changed. I'm beginning to think that I created the problem after my Windows 10 update by using some "fix win10 privacy" program. I just don't know how to fix it. Running Restore doesn't seem realistic since it has been several months since the upgrade and the reset would make massive changes.

You could run a Reset with the "keep my files" option to see if that fixes it.

 

Yes, you might lose some programs that you have installed as part of the reset but if you have the media they came on, or they're downloads [and/or you have the license keys for those that need them] you can simply reinstall.

 

This option keeps each and every one of your data files, but gives you a clean slate copy of the operating system.  It keeps certain programs, mostly Microsoft ones, but not exclusively.  The process creates an HTML file on your desktop that lists precisely what programs were removed, so it's easy to know what you need to reload.

 

If you wish to try this open Settings -> Update & Security and choose the Recovery pane.  Then click the "Get Started" button under the "Reset this PC" area.  You will be asked if you wish to keep your personal files or do a complete wipe and install.  You obviously want to keep your personal files.

 

If this works I would strongly advise again trying any of the privacy enhancer programs with the possible exception of Spybot Anti-Beacon if you absolutely must.  It's very easy to get Windows 10 to behave almost precisely as earlier versions of Windows did as far as what gets sent back to Microsoft for analysis if you tweak all your Privacy settings to your liking and also your Cortana & Search settings.

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download.

 

 

To keep a record of your system profile at any given time, you can publish to the Web using Speccy. Speccy uses Piriform's servers to publish the profile without any identifying information. Each profile is given a unique URL. For an example, see:

 

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/nGmV1yekiTFbWJJ1oggVwcV

 

The last part of each URL is randomized, so only people you provide with the URL will be able to find your profile.

 

Note: Each time you start Speccy, it will generate a new randomized URL. This is useful if you want to track your computer's information over time.

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

  • In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.

  • In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

  • Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

  • In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.
