Windows 11’s March 2023 Update is a mess and is causing serious problems for some, including SSD performance issues and more. In addition, there have been reports of misleading “Local Security Authority is disabled” security warnings in the Windows Defender app “Windows Security”, and Microsoft has finally acknowledged this in an update to the support document.
We recently reported that Windows 11 March 2023 Update caused annoying alerts urging users to reboot their systems. Microsoft acknowledged that this is a known issue and “engineers are working hard to find a fix”. In an update to the support document, Microsoft noted:
“After installing “Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus antimalware platform – KB5007651”, you may receive a security notification or warning that says “Local security protection has been disabled. Your device may be vulnerable,” and once protection is enabled, your Windows device may persistently ask to reboot,” the company said.
For those who don’t know, KB5007651 was released last week for Windows 11 version 22H2 and older, and it was supposed to fix known security vulnerabilities, but introduced some rather concerning issues.
Many people took to our forums and social media to complain that their Windows 11 Security app was acting weird since installing the update.
The good news is that Microsoft has finally acknowledged this issue, and it’s a promising move, meaning the company is actively working on a fix.
Advice from Microsoft: You don’t need to reboot the device if you have already enabled LSA (Local Security Authority) protection and rebooted your device at least once, as these are false positives and users can safely ignore or ignore warning messages . safety warnings.
How to fix the bug in Windows Security app
Microsoft has started working on a fix and the company has made changes to mitigate the impact. However, if you don’t want to see the warning in the Windows Security app, we have detailed steps to fix it:
1. Open the Windows Registry Editor.
2. Go to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
3. Right-click the LSA folder.
4. Create new DWORD entries – RunAsPPL and RunAsPPLBoot.
5. Value must be 2.
And finally, restart your PC. We’ve tested the solution, which worked on all of our devices, but we can’t guarantee it will work for everyone.
