  1. Microsoft security and my Printer


    Microsoft Defender security suddenly has disallowed me from printing to my own printer. Yesterday, I printed numerous files. Today, it's blocking me due to a severe threat. I restarted my printer and my laptop. No luck. What the heck? Why, and how do I fix this? All help appreciated.

    :)

    Microsoft Edge TLS Security

    After trying everything (not a lot of steps) listed in the Microsoft Edge support site, I did a wider search and found this very simple youtube video that fixed it immediately:

    For those who prefer not to click links the steps are simple:

    1. Click in the Cortana search bar next to the Win 10 Start button

    2. Type internet options

    3. Select internet options (control panel) from the list

    4. Click on the advanced tab

    5. Scroll down to the security section

    6. Make sure the following are all clicked:
    Use SSL 3.0
    Use TLS 1.0
    Use TLS 1.1
    Use TLS 1.2

    7. Click apply

    8. Refresh the page that was giving the error and it should now connect.

    Hope this helps, it was a 30 second fix after hours of pounding my head against the error with the Support site suggestions.

    Hi Carol,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to print files, this issue might have occurred due to incorrect settings or due to corrupted printer drivers.
    We will help you to resolve this issue.

    I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    Run inbuilt printer troubleshooter and check if it works.
    Please follow the steps given below.

    Note: If your computer is having problems printing, try using the Printer troubleshooter to fix the problem. It makes sure that a printer is connected to your computer, and it checks
    for common issues such as whether the printer has enough paper and toner to complete printing your document.

    • Type Troubleshooting on the search bar and click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Now click on view all option.
    • Click on printer and follow the prompts to run the troubleshooter.
    If the issue persists, follow method 2

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to uninstall and re-install the printer as a work around and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Uninstall the printer:

    • Press “Windows + X” keys on the keyboard.
    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.
    • Search for the “Printer” device from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for
      this device
      ” you may select that and then remove its drivers from the computer.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.
    You may also uninstall any related software provided by the printer manufacturer from the computer from “Programs and Features”. For this, you may follow these steps:

    • Press “Windows + X” keys on the keyboard and select “Programs and Features” from that list.
    • Search for any software provided by the printer manufacturer in the program list and if available, you may select it and click on “Uninstall” to remove it from the computer.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.
    Step 2: Install a Printer

    Refer to the below link about: Install a printer

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/install-printer#install-printer=windows-8

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Try the above mentioned steps and get back with the required information to assist you accordingly.
