    I would try 2 options:
    1. try in safe boot
    2. try in new Administrator account.

    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10
    Add Local Account or Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    Or perhaps try with built-in Administrator:
    Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10

    Just to confirm, is the Windows Security app not opening at all, or is it just grayed out? This will make a difference on what the issue could be.

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot to help.
