    The latest security update has turned my desktop into a paperweight.


    I have only my destop screen picture showing and the blue cirle when I put the mouse indicator on anything near the power settings on the left.


    I should be happy, I suppose, since at first all I was getting was a gray screen. I have rebooted several times to no avail. Help?!

    :)

    Hi Edehomon,

    This issue might occur if third party security has disabled Windows Defender services.



    I suggest you to follow the steps below to

    To assist you better, please provide us the information below:

    • When you say that "windows security services are turned off", have you installed any third party security software on the computer?

    I suggest you to try to turn on Windows Defender by following steps below and check if it helps.

    1. Click on Search bar?

    2. Type "Settings" without the quotes in the search bar and click on it.

    3. Then click on Update & security.

    4. Click on Windows Defender.

    5. Then try to turn on the Windows Defender services.

    Note: If a third party security software is installed on the computer, then it will disable Windows Defender.
