I updated my 7 laptop to 10 and after fixing a display issue, I wanted to install Start 10. I can't turn off Windows SmartScreen. can't use the Task Manager, it just flashes for a second. I'm the Admin and won't run as admin and this just baffles me. I can't turn off Defender either 

Any ideas?

Sounds like this should be in the Windows 10 forums rather than the Logos forums. That said, maybe someone will jump in and help.

I managed to turn off the nanny stuff, but it still wouldn't go. Went back to Win 7. Too bad, my other machines upgraded without this hassle.

Not sure how bad you want 10 on that machine. You have the option to download the ISO file, and do a clean install. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

I'd love to have it. It's faster than 7. My guess is that I should have avoided the express settings for set up. Other than having to get the display set up right and this hangup, everything else was fine.
