    I Can't get this Threat removed from Microsoft Security Windows 10


    After a full Scan Fri. came into work ion Mon and restarted computer. There were 2 threats found at High Risk. Of course, I removed them both. But They are STILL there after several tries to remove them.

    1st High-level Threat found STILL Says ACTIVE after removing several times HackTool:Win32/Passview.ARD!MTB


    2nd High-Level Threat says removed or restored, but still listed under HIgh threat level HackTool:Win32/Passview.ARD!MTB

    I allowed Microsoft to make changes to the computer after selecting remove.


    What else can I do?

    My shield Icon on bottom right toolbar on the desktop still has a red X on it showing there's still a risk.

    I have rescanned and restarted the computer. Why is the shield still red after removing the threat a dozen times it does not go anywhere.

    I really don't want to allow the threat that I blocked to be restored in case it causes further issues.

    :)

    Microsoft Botches Up UEFI Support for Windows 7 on ASUS Motherboards

    Microsoft suggests updating to Windows 10 to patch Windows 7

    MICROSOFT HAS confirmed a potentially lappy-borking problem that it won't be fixing, because Windows 7.

    Woody Leonhard, the respected Windows columnist, points to a problem involving Asus motherboards, which also appear rebadged in a variety of other manufacturers' machines, and the activation of UEFI Secure Boot for Windows 7 in a patch KB3133977.

    Short version: install update, welcome to Borksville, population you.

    Both Asus and Microsoft acknowledged the problem. Microsoft entitled the article "BitLocker can't encrypt drives because of service crashes in svchost.exe process in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2", but we prefer to just call it "Trevor for brevity."

    The firm's advice was that it's an optional update, leave well alone, you'll be fine, or alternatively turn secure boot off.

    Then Microsoft did a silly, silly thing.

    It moved the update from 'optional' to 'recommended' and anyone who reads this site regularly will know what happens when Microsoft does this. That's right boys and girls - it makes it automatically install, unless you've specifically told your machine not to.

    So now, if you have one of the affected motherboard and you keep your security updates automatic like wot Microsoft recommends, then your machine will stop working properly.

    We should add it's not permanently bricked, but it will take some mucking about in the BIOS to fix and that's a pain even for an experienced computer user.

    Microsoft has, by offering a workaround, suggested heavily that it won't be fixing the problem, though we have asked the question, so expect a response in about a fortnight.

    But the real kicker is this piece of advice: "Note The Secure Boot feature is supported in Windows 10. To learn more about the security advantages of this feature and about the upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows 10, go to the following Windows website"

    Holy toledo, this company really knows how to rub people up the wrong way.

    After all - if the advice is to manually avoid the update or move to a version of the operating system where there's virtually no control over updates, then Microsoft is dealing in massive contradictions.

    A more cynical site would suggest that it's yet another example of Microsoft running Windows 7 into the ground and adding built in obsolescence to encourage quicker updates. But we're not that sort of site.

    Its the patching to force secure boot that is the problem win 7 does not support secure boot
    hence it borks systems and well microsofts answer is Cactus >your Asshole > insert
