    Had a window update today and after reboot was advised that Defender and firewall were turned off click here to turn on, I do that and widows security opens and firewall entry seems to have disappeared from windows security and Virus and threat protection has a red X

    when I click restart now I get the message "Unexpected error sorry we ran into a problem please try again"

    I cannot seem to enable this and have spent the last 3 hours googling and even resorted to MS help desk who instantly went with do a recovery

    anyone have any idea before I do a recovery and have to reinstall everything ?
