  1. Windows Defender Anti-virus and so on is not working after windows update 20H2


    20H1 was perfect for me. So, I paused the installation of 20H2. But somehow, one day it upgraded automatically. Any way, when I go to protection History of Windows defender, there is no result and it freezes. It keeps protecting my laptop I still receive notification that it blocked an app from making changes but I can't control it when it blocks some app I trust. And that is really annoying.

    + After the update, the mobile hotspot feature is not working properly. It turns on, but it doesn't share any sort of internet connection.

    There is more problem I'm facing and I'm sick of it.


    Now I want to roll back to 20H1 without losing any of my data. But as it was updated more than 10 days ago, the roll back option is not available.


    Now, what should I do? And how?


    So please, help me to either roll back to 20H1 I'd prefer to roll back or solve those problem.


    Thanks in advance.

    :)
