    The following message just popped up on my computer "Windows Defender Security Alert. Meltdown and Spectre maintenance notice. Contact your security administrator." This notice has now stopped my pointer and mouse from functioning and I cannot get into anything. In addition I can see " transferring files going on. Is this a virus or malware?

Ut starts as soon as my desktop appears and I can' get in to anything. Desperate for help and where re my files going ....to some hacker. I have Webroot antivirus.

  2. Windows Defender problem

    Hi Ernst,

    To troubleshoot this issue, we suggest that you check the Windows Defender service if it's running. If you are using a third party spyware/malware program, it may disable the Windows Defender service. To do this, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows + R key.
    • Type services.msc.
    • Right-click Windows Defender service and click
      Start.

    Let us know the result.
