    This problem just started like a day or two ago. I can't turn on Windows Defender and when I try to open defender it says "Windows cannot access the specified device, file or path. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".

    I've searched on forums and they all say to download certain programs but every time I go to download anything it says that the file had a virus and was deleted! So downloading files or programs is out of the question!

    Tried to do a system restore twice but each time it did not work. Can anyone help?
