Problem customer desktop, Dell, Win 10
At first the unit started up ok but instantly went to opening up command prompt over and over again several times a second. After farting around a while I was finally able to make the unit operable by doing a system restore. But now I am stuck.... ever heard of "Panda"?... a Chinese anti-virus program. . After a good while trying to get rid of it, I finally had to download, install, and run a removal program. That seemed to get rid of everything but now I am stuck still not being able to turn on Win Defender. It all seems to be there but cannot turn on protection. There are no other anti-virus programs installed (at least that I can find). Can not seem to find anything with msconfig or regedit and the repair console just said it could not be fixed.
That Panda simply had to leave something on the registry that I cannot find... throw me a bone please?... thanks
