  1. security/maintenance software


    I have deleted security/maintenance software off my computer, but there is still some residuals of the software that are interfering with the computers operation. I have searched for the bits that are causing the problem but they will not reveal themselves. How can I find them and remove them?

    Security and Maintenance error. windows 10.

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if the issue persists.

    Method 1: Windows has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with system. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your System
    Maintenance.

    Refer these steps:

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.
    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.
    • Run the System Maintenance troubleshooter.



    Method 2: Place your computer in clean boot state and check if it helps.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Note: After troubleshooting, refer to this section "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting".



    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    Getting Security & Maintenance to recognize my IObit security software

    I have IObit software for antivirus and malware protection but I've had to turn off messages from S&M (no pun intended) because Windows neither recognizes that I have this Iobit software, it doesn't have Iobit listed in the various software options arrived
    at from the link in S&M, nor have I found anyway to get Windows to learn that it has fully accepted and allows to operate these Iobit programs.

    Does anyone know how to get Windows S&M to recognize software that is installed on my computer?
