Windows security suite ongoing problems

Windows 10 home v 1809

I have had persistent problems with defender,quarantining legit files,mainly my Korg Synth usb drivers and librarian program Even "allowing" the files,the security program quarantines them on a regular basis,I wanted to try the inbuilt Security before reverting to Kaspersky free on FBs advice

The other problem which has surfaced the last few days is i have a message in red next to the Security program which reads "virus and threat protection is managed by your organisation"

Ive run Malware bytes Premium and Online virus scanner,it finds nothing

I found a site that said the Fix was to type into the command prompt "REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender" /v DisableAntiSpyware"

Seems to have worked on rebooting i get the message "getting protection info" and everything eventually seems ok,other than a red cross in the corner of the shield requesting i take action? That is where i am stumped,there is no action to take

I have done a few resets and it is the same conclusion red cross on the shield

If theres no fix i think its time to change to something else
