    Four blocks bottom left


    Using Windows10. When I open the square at the bottom left of the screen, normally I get a (ladder) list of items installed in my computer but all of a sudden, all I get now is a list of squares which show minimal information. I have been unable to find Windows Accessories to make a screen shot as i cannot find where the program is!
    Can anyone please explain how I can put the problem to rights please?
    Regards RonB79

    :)

  2. blocked applications

    Hi Eileen,

    Windows Defender or another antivirus software will sometimes block a certain app or file from running or being installed. With this, you can check the
    quarantine section of the antivirus program you are using to see which program is being blocked. To better assist you, we need the answers to the following questions:

    • What is the exact error message did you receive after launching or running the app?
    • Which antivirus program are you using?

    In the meantime, we suggest disabling the Windows Defender SmartScreen and see if the app will run. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

    • Type Windows Defender on the search box and click on the first option.
    • On the left side of the window, click on the Window icon (App & browser control).
    • On the SmartScreen for Windows
      Store apps column, select Off.

    We are looking forward to your response.
