Windows defender settings made too defensive. I might be locked out of my folders.

No, I specifically went into Windows defender settings and I selected some folders and protected them.

 

I just need to know where that setting is

Open Windows Defender Security Center.

Click on Virus & threat protection.

Click the Virus & threat protection settings option.

Under "Controlled folder access," click manage controlled folder access.

turn it off

 

Everytime I try to open some software and install anything, the Virus and threat protection system starts acting weird and blocks me. 

 

I can't install rockstar launcher because of this issue.

 

This started from the day I suddenly found Norton Security app in my list of programmes. I uninstalled it immediately because I had never installed it. And this uninstallation process was really weird too.

 

After uninstalled, it immediately restarted PC and upon restarting, it shows a really weird looking screen. Will post here in comments.

 

And after restart, I went into windows defender settings and improved the settings and might have accidentally added some folders into the protected list to prevent editing by someone else. 

 

It has been now 2-4 weeks since then and now I have many error popping up saying that found and all. It's blocking my RGB fusion software. I don't care about it, then it's blocking Adobe Premiere pro, but still opens it. Now I'm trying to install rockstar launcher, completely blocking it.

 

I can't find this settings, please guide me.

This might have all started when I opened the App centre and allowed it to download and update all the softwares/Drivers.

Seems like a weird virus behavior, or some shady Norton stuff.

Did you try to virus scan ?

 A lot of these tend to have malware and bloatware.

I suggest that you backup your data and reinstall windows....

it looks like windows got infected for good....
