    Windows Security problem

    Hey guys, I have a 2 week old computer. Since day 1, Windows Security will not open. It pops up a Microsoft Store box and says Windows Security needs a new app. If I click on 'find', nothing happens. I've searched this issue online and have seen others with this problem, but I have seen no solutions. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

    Hi Hmcgee25. Welcome to the TenForums @Hmcgee25

    You could an inplace repair as a possible fix. Are you on V1809, if so this tutorial.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    To get version, right click start, left click "Run", type winver, enter

    Otherwise you could reset Windows and keep your data. You will lose any programs you installed.

    Start > Settings > Update and security > Recovery > top of the right hand side.

    Back your data up either route.

    Failing that this is a store problem, you paid good money, invoke warranty.
