    Windows Defender blocking Adobe updates and other programs as a Security 10


    Everytime an update comes up it is blocked, now I cannot use these programs which is very frustrating as I need them for school and work.


    Does anyone know an easy way to fix this problem. I have called the support line for technical help, but keep getting hung up on. A live chat would be helpful, not that stupid virtual agent.

    :)
