I get this error message whenever I try to scan my computer.
"AN UNEXPECTED PROBLEM OCCURRED DURING YOUR SCAN. CLICK OK TO GO BACK TO THE HOMEPAGE AND TRY AGAIN."
Windows defender is already turned off to prevent any system clash. The error message pops up just before the system starts scanning. I need help on this. Thanks!
