Win10 keeps switching Off Virus Protection
« on: 09 November 2018, 14:02:13 »

Win10 Pro, up to date, no other VP installed other than the Win10 on-board one, sometimes after a reboot, everything fine, then after about 5 mins it alerts me your Virus Protection is switched off.

Go to Settings/Security/blah blah all settings are correct (ie, Green Ticked, No Action Needed) apart from Virus and Threat Protection, Action Required, go in this and its reporting "Your Virus and Threat protection is Managed by Your Organisation" ie, unable to change Settings, this is the same whether logged in as Admin or not.

Any thoughts?, Ta.

Sounds like your computer thinks it is connected to someone's AD.  Is it a company laptop or personal?

Difficult to say without physically checking it.  Could everything from a virus to an erroneous update.

Have you tried going through the old skool COntrol Panel rather than the crappy Win10 settings interface.  I never trust the new one, it's too clunky.

Another thing is that Security Centre is too eager and your AV is not as quick.  Setting Security Center to Automatic (delayed start) could help too.

Hmm, yea, kinda thinking the same, my PC are kept pretty clean in more ways than one, I do a Full Malwarebytes scan once a month in safe mode, no reports there, Could be a dodgy Win Update, most of my Up Dates are Manual big ones, rather than bits and pieces though.

Its just annoying not knowing if Im having Protection now and then, and Im buggered if Im doing another rebuild this side of Xmas, too much going on at the mo.

A reinstall of the AV could work too.  Nice and easy :y

Yep, I know what you mean on that one, Contrul Panel lets me view System and Secuirity and also onforms me VP is off, gives me 2 options, 1, Turn On Defender 2, Go Online and find another App, select option 1 then justs takes me to the Win10 Panel, same deal about your Organisation blah, blah.

Listen, you experts, it's not COntrol Panel and it's not Contrul Panel. It's Control Panel.  :P :P ;D

Is that the one that's shaped like a wooden stick with a 4lb lump of cast iron on one end? ::)

It thinks it has a GPO being applied.

Assuming it never has been connected to an AD, it could be a piece of malware has done it.  You may find it in gpedit.msc, or look in the various Policies/Microsoft area of the registry, such as HKLM/Software/Policies


But being a desktop, I wouldn't break around. It could be rebuilt in under 10mins...
