  2. Preparing Security Options Removal

    Hi,

    My PC is running Windows 10. When I log in I can't do anything. The PC flashes "Preparing Security Options" in the background for 1/10th of a second and then goes back to the desktop. I can't click the window icon. It won't ctrl alt delete. Nothing I click
    works. It's as if the system is non stop spamming the Preparing Security Options message that is running in the background. I can only use the system like normal when I boot in safe mode. Please let me know how to disable the Preparing Security Options feature.

    Thanks,

    Stevo

    I discovered WHY my laptop stops responding after I get "Preparing Security Options":

    going to Task Manager, I discovered more than TWENTY Internet Explorer where opened!

    What does this means? Any idea?

    Thank you for your help.

    how do I stop preparing security options

    Preparing Security Options

    The Preparing Security Option is neither a virus nor an application/program, it is simply an informational message that appears if the security is updating or needs to be updated.

    Regarding with 20 opened Internet Explorer, yes, it affects the performance of your computer and one of the possible reason for that is the computer is trying to download an update online or on the web. We suggest booting your computer in
    safe mode to isolate the possibility that it may be a driver update related.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide you further assistance.
