Windows 7: I only get "system protection is turned off etc."

19 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
I only get "system protection is turned off etc."

I only get "system protection is turned off etc." than in the section where it tells you how to turn it on, it says: "Click to open System.

In the left pane, click System protection. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. "
but all there is in the left pane is: Control Panel Home, Device Manager, Remote Settings, Advanced system settings. So where do i turn it on then?

Hello Steinarbj, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This may be able to help you get system protections turned on. It's turned on by default for the C: drive. You can also click on the Advanced system settings link, and click on the System Protection tab.

System Protection - Turn On or Off

Are you an administrator?
