This isn't a new machine. I did, however, have the geek squad
reinstall windows for me back in February of this year because the
machine wouldn't boot into windows and when the geek squad
evaluated it they said it was a software problem, and they offered
me some sort of software program that I let them install thinking
it might help but it was more of a problem than anything. I forget
what software it was but I don't believe it was AVG, and I
eventually got it uninstalled, but maybe it was something to do
with that that stopped windows security from running. I know that
I just recently started downloading and running the Microsoft
safety scanner again after not doing that for a while, and when I
used to use that it never found anything to quarentine but the
last few times it has been finding things to remove.
Is there a way that I can double-check to be sure windows
security is indeed running? I found it in my settings the other
day and turned something on that said it was off but I don't know
if that did the trick or not.

If you purchased a brand name
machine, it is possible the a v g was installed by the
manufacturer. This is a common practice.
For some reason windows security notified me a couple of days
ago that it was turned off on my windows 10 machine. I think I
eventually got it turned back on but in the meantime I found
out that AVG was installed and apparently running. I have no
idea how AVG got installed, must've been part of some
bloatwear that got installed when I installed something else
even though I have unchecky installed and that's supposed to
stop extra things like that from installing, but unless the
message I got was wrong apparently certain things can shut
down windows security.
