Unfortunately the Lite Tool is available only for enterprise users.
The download page shows an Open Source version.

windows 10 and security

I use Windows 10's Defender and never worried about viruses.

And when someone recommends something I always wonder what connection they have to what they are recommending.

However, when I then rebooted my PC complained that there was no bootable device,
