Tried to reverse every tweak I made, in place upgrade, followed many methods from web, changed many settings. Nothing worked. So, most probably I will do clean install now.

Have you tried disabling CPU virtualization feature in the BIOS ? It is the master switch of that feature.

Issue Solved: I don't need any clean install. I turn off secure boot. Booted the PC in recovery environment and change the following registry keys.

1. Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\DeviceGuard\Scenarios\CredentialGuard

Enabled=0, HVCIMATRequired=0, Locked=0

3. Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\DeviceGuard\Scenarios\KernelShadowStacks
AuditModeEnabled=0, Enabled=0, WasEnabledBy=4

4. Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\DeviceGuard\Scenarios\SystemGuard
Enabled=0, Managed=0

Restarted the pc, vbs was off now. So, I decided to turn on secure on again and TA-DA vbs was still off.
