    Can’t Open Elevated Command Prompt

    I just installed WIN 10 on an old laptop (if one can call a lenovo W700 a laptop), used a win7 product key and the authentication was accepted
    had to create a microsoft account, refuse to give them all kind of info... arghhh

    I am now trying to put in the LENOVO drivers and just get blocked :

    “Your organization used WINDOW DEFENDER APPLICATION CONTROL to block this app”

    APP & browser control off
    placed the folder in which I have the drivers in the exclusions
    no way

    I then came here and found the tutorials and tried to open an elevated command prompt
    but even though my account is registered as ADMINISTRATOR, I get the same message
    “your organization....block this app” when I click COMMAND PROMPT

    so I get nowhere !
    Help please, in less than 2 years now I’ll have to turn my actual computer from win7 to win10

    I knew it was not going to be fun...

    thanks dalchina,
    but I can't find "secure boot" on my machine
    either it's not there... or I did not go to the right place

    So you need to research another possible solution.

    Do you have the same problem in a different user profile? Create a new user for test purposes.

    Which windows edition and version are you using? Are you using Win 10S? Where did you get your Windows iso from? See:
    : techsupport

    My guess is you've installed a copy of Win 10 with security settings built in- group policy. I.e. not a clean Win 10.
    If so, please follow:
    Clean Install Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials
    including the instructions to create a bootable usb drive.

    Have you searched for your message? There are plenty of results..
    Your organization used WINDOW DEFENDER APPLICATION CONTROL to block this app

    Please post a screenshot of Defender (click its tray icon, also Virus and threat protection.
    Have you installed any other AV?

    Organisation has used windows defender application control to - Microsoft Community
    - seems to suggest it might happen if you disable Defender.

    well, well, dalchina, never give up, that's how you became a guru !!!
    but I appreciate it, thanks :)

    1 - I downloaded from microsoft site on a USB drive
    Download Windows 10

    thanks to this article :
    and the article is right : authentication worked fine with a win 7 product key

    2 - no, I did not install any AV, I doubt I can install anything, right now I would just like to install the thinkpad drivers

    I hope these are the screenshots you meant :

    Windows (MS) deals with drivers for you. You only need intervene if there's a problem which does happen for a few.

    What does this say?
