Windows 10: Advanced startup won't work Solved

    Advanced startup won't work

    I activated offline scanning with defender while i have norton installed just to get a scan in and now i keep getting errors from norton that it's scans will be worsened because defender limited periodic scanning is on. I turned them all off and even after multiple restarts it won't go away. Now i can't access the boot menu as i am dual booting ubuntu and w10 nor can i access bios menu or will advanced starup selections work.

    Welcome to the Ten forums.

    Have you tried uninstalling Norton. I would head to their site and get their Norton removal tool. This gets it all. You can then see if the behavior changes. If you then install Norton I believe it should shut off Defender as it would with a fresh install. I use Malwarebytes as my other set of eyes with Norton running.

    Re getting into BIOS. Have you tried powering up with ESC key pressed. I think that is your Setup key.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled Norton and it seems to be running better. The alert no longer pops up about reduced Norton effectiveness. I can make it into my bios now as well. Thanks for the info about escape, I didn't know about it. Now I am having an issue using parted magic on the Ultimate Boot CD. I can't make it into the program with any of the three choices. I would like to scan some hdds and sdd while they aren't booted to make sure there are no virus'. There's clamav and fprot on there.
