  1. Virus changed several settings in Windows 8.1


    So,


    i got a virus that wont let me open Windows Defender, Action Center and other settings that i forgot. It also led me to an ad everytime i open Google Chrome My chrome also got added into an "organisation".


    I tried to open up my Windows Defender by disabling the "Turn Off Windows Defender" in group policy settings and it worked But everytime i restart my laptop the Windows Defender would get disabled again i tried to scan with it but the Windows Defender Service is gone/isnt installed apparently.


    I also tried running it on Safe Mode but the problem still occured.


    How do i remove this virus or get my Windows Defender Service back ?

    :)

    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
