I'm sorry about the issue. Are you able to disable your security program temporarily?

If you turn on the camera, then connect the camera to the computer. Then open file explorer / window explorer. Then click on This PC option on the left, then can you open the camera device (or camera's driver letter) if it's there, then open folder DCIM and/or any subfolder. Then can you view your photos there?
