    Problems addressing security issues found on my device.


    Hello. Anyone kind enough to offer myself assistance in resolving these issues, I can assure you that your time spent helping me out is massively appreciated.

    I ran the Microsoft baseline security scan on my device as I have been experiencing some odd behaviour occurring whilst using my device. (Results Uploaded).

    I am trying to resolve one of the issues detected on the scan and I am being instructed in the article for resolving this issue to do so by auditing the systems Local Security settings of the pc. However after following these to the letter, I am finding that there seems to be no Local Security Policies available on the device for me to carry out auditing upon.

    Is the standard for my type of OS and if so, how can I go about rectifying the issue as directed by another method.

    Again, so grateful for anyone's help in regards to this matter.....

    Group Policy (Local Security Policies) is not available in Windows 10 Home.

    If you post the issue you're having, maybe someone here and can help you with it.

    FYI ... A scan of my system shows the same thing and automatic updates are working fine.

    The most recent version I can find is the 'Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2.3 (for IT Professionals)'. Note that this does not support Windows 10.

    Microsoft said:
    Supported Operating System
    Windows 2000, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Vista, Windows XP

    The one and only 'Severe Risk' listed in your report is due to MSBA not understanding how windows update works in Windows 10. You should ignore this one.
    your MBSA scan said:
    Automatic Updates
    The Automatic Updates feature has not been configured on this computer. Please upgrade to the latest Service Pack to obtain the latest version of this feature and then use the Control Panel to configure Automatic Updates.
    The others are just warnings that some accounts have no password, or no expiry date for their password. This is normal on a typical Windows 10 install.
