    How do I Undo a virus restore


    I have received a virus warning and, having used the program for a long time, clicked restore. I am now unable to remove the item from the allowed threats.


    I believe the item was, in any case, a false positive, but am not certain of this.



    I have found this procedure

    1. Press Windows key + I together to open Settings.
    2. Click on Update & Security > Windows Security.
    3. Click on Open Windows Security > Virus & threat protection.
    4. Click on Threat history.
    5. Under Quarantined threats, click on See full history.
    6. Click the item that you want to remove and click on Remove. Step 4 is not possible, though, as there is no "Threast History" option that I can see and in the "Allowed Threats" and "Protection History" options There is no option to remove the item from the allowed threats.


    :)
