“We include a full-fledged antivirus solution in Windows,” he said. Wonder if this guy knows what he is talking about???? It won’t continue performing real-time scans, so it won’t interfere with your other antivirus.
Try to open the Windows Defender settings pane with another antivirus installed and you’ll find every option grayed out.
To remedy this, I made the following registry edit as didn't exist on my computer with the home edition, only the one with the pro edition: LOCAL MACHINE- I have the latest Norton Security Suite running in Windows 10 126.96.36.199 I noticed Windows Defender is still running. I don't need it to also run to protect my system do I? The whole reason this thread is here is that Windows defender should be disabled when Norton is installed.
Having 2 antiviruses running at once causes lots of issues because they fight each other.
Might have something to do with this: "Microsoft has made some bold promises about improvements to security in Windows 10.
Chris Hallum, a senior product marketing manager for Microsoft, said in an interview that because of all the security enhancements in Windows 10, consumers and businesses won’t have to install additional security software to protect their machines. Windows 10 will automatically disable Windows Defender if you install another anti-malware program.
When I click it, it comes up with a box telling me to turn Norton or Windows firewall on like in my previous post. I turned fast start up on and rebooted and didn't get the notification come up.
Upon cold booting, windows defender was disabled like it should be and norton worked fine.I first installed Norton 360 version 21.something from comcast which of course was buggy and not compatible but it did disable windows defender properly.After I removed it, I found the updated version 22.something and it works fine, but windows defender is also enabled.I'm just wondering if this was anything to do with me turning off the fast boot up within Windows or if it's time to do a fresh reinstall of Norton Any information will be greatly appreciated! Could you please check if both your Norton 360 and Windows Defender is Active as mentioned in the above thread? Thank you for the link to the other thread you sent me I've had a little look over it and I then checked the status of the Windows firewall by going through control panel.And when I click on Windows firewall it says 'These settings are being managed by vender application Norton 360'.
I tried several security products with the same result. After removing norton once more with NRT, I did not reboot but shutdown my computer.
