Hi,

 

Hope this is the correct forum. Switched on my computer this morning and saw that on the windows security there was a yellow triangle on looking into this it said it was "Local Security Authority Protections is off. Your device may be vulnerable," I immediately went to settings and it brought me to the Core isolation page but both Memory Integrity and Microsoft Vulnerable Driver Blocklist are ON as shown attached.

 

Have tried repairing windows security through the app setting but it didn't do anything. Also came across another fix about using regedit and using "RunAsPPL" in registry edit but I don't have "RunAsPPL" in my folder.

 

I'm really not sure what or how the problem has come about as I have installed no new updates or are there any updates awaiting. This has just appeared this morning. I would be grateful for any help in fixing this. 

 

Thanks

I have since discovered it's a bug that has not got fixed by Microsoft.  I am not sure about the event viewer findings either..... not sure if this is for every windows machine or just a limited amount of machines.

Thanks, just totally unsure what to do, whether the computer is safe or not.

For now, the solution is to simply ignore the warning, but this will do nothing to quell the panic and concern that the appearance of the message has caused for users who have not seen this advice.
