When you say reformatted. Do you really mean that or a reinstall of windows over the top of itself?
Most of the problems I've seen like this have been due to a kind of remaining bit of the parameters of some software being there, but windows or nvda getting confused what its doing. Oftn if it is only nvda which is the issue, you can weed out all the occurrences of nvda and install clean and start again. If other things are affected then stuff can get more complicated. So it might still be that the reason you cannot action the items you say is purely due to nvda not being in a good state. I assume this is the latest Windows 10? If so then try using narrator for making things work like anti virus and firewall, however I'd be a bit worried why, after a reinstall all of this was not on by default.

Subject: [nvda] Scren reader malfunctioning

Hi good people:
Please I am having problems with my NVDA screen reader. I started
having these problems after a reformatting of my laptop computer a few
days ago.
The first problem is that I cannot change the keyboard layout from
desktop to laptop. When I activate the laptop option, it does not
change from desk top to laptop. I don't understand why this is
happening. I in fact re-installed the program, but the problem has
The problem is peculiar with NVDA, because I don't have these problems
with JAWS. Please is there a fix for these problems.
I also want to find out how I can turn on windows defender, or windows
firewall. When I attempted turning on windows defender, by typing
defender in to the search box, and windows defender coming up, I am
unable to pull down the file menu to go to tools, in order to do the
turn on. I even tried using the application key, all to no avail.
Hope to read a response.
From Ibrahim.
