  1. How can I reinstall Windows Defender on windows 11?


    I recently upgraded to windows 11 recently and was using my free trial for McAfee antivirus. My trial ended and I uninstalled the software hoping to go back to using Windows Defender. After navigating to the windows security settings I found the menu to be blank with no information whatsoever. I searchers Virus & Threat protection in the search bar and got this response: "Your IT Administrator has limited access to some areas of this app and the item you tried to access is not available. Contact IT helpdesk for more information". This is my personal laptop and I am the only administrator.
