Hi all, I've been having trouble getting FreeCam to be accepted by the antivirus on my computer (Windows 10, comes with Windows Defender). Every time I try to open it, the antivirus automatically quarantines the exe and I can't use it. I have followed all the steps on the Microsoft support page: 1623085797998.png
However, every time I get to settings, I can't find the 'Manage Settings' button and derails me: 1623085841555.png
Here is what that settings page looks like for me: 1623085898936.png
If anybody could help point me in the right direction or give me a different strategy, that would be very greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Logan7

I followed the steps and end up on the same page...
I don't get a 'Open Windows Defender Security Center', just 'Open Windows Security'.
Even if it is the same thing, I have no clue where the settings are for it

I also may try a different camera program, it's not like I'm completely devastated if I don't get this working

You have to go under "Virus and Threat Protection" to get to the next part. It's the second item on the list to the left under "Home".
