Windows Defender is over-protecting me. I cannot download any program such as browser add-ons etc.
I'm running Trend Micro and even with it disabled, I still can't download anything. I called TM and had it checked.

Please help!!
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. If you disable Windows Defender, does it let you download?

Can we do a screen sharing session, so I can check and fix this issue directly for you?

Please let me know. Thank you
