    My PC is controlled by the school?


    I am a student programmer and have been getting this notification whenever I try to compile codes on VS, etc : "your administrator requires a security scan of this item. the scan could take up to 10 seconds"

    My problem with this is that I am the administrator and in fact, the only user of my PC and when I research on this issue, most people established that receiving this prompt means that you are not the administrator.

    This notification only started popping up after I installed Office360 and connected my school account to access those apps.
    I researched for the longest time and all forums suggest to sign out of all accounts like this site but it did not help: https://engineering.purdue.edu/ECN/Support/KB/Docs/HomePCsuddenlyreports

    I tried everything I could find but the notification still pops up - just to clarify, the notification doesn't bother me - my main concern is that my PC could be handled by my school.

    TL;DR How do I find out if my school is managing my PC, and if so, how do I stop them from doing so?

    Many thanks for your time!

    :)

    Hello SubieTY,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Initially, we need to pair the device to show up in the list while connected through Bluetooth. Check with the below mentioned steps and see if it works.


    Hope it helps.
