  2. Nonstop alerts about virus protection

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing the operating system with the security notification on your device. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • Have you installed any third-party anti-virus software on your device?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What is the complete error code/ error message of this issue?
    • When exactly you get this error pop-up?

    Try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: If you have installed any third-party anti-virus software, I suggest you to disable it and check if it issue persists.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software,
    you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to uninstall the third-party anti-virus software.

    Step 2: I suggest you to run Windows Defender on your device and check if it helps.

    Windows Defender is malware protection that is included with and built into Windows 10. This software helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. So, you do not need to install any third party antivirus applications.

  3. Turning on spyware and virus protection

    Hello,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.


    Windows Defender is the default real-time (always on) protection program in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.

    If there are any third party security software installed, then Windows Defender will get disabled automatically.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it help:


    • Open Settings by either clicking on the Settings icon on the Start menu or simultaneously pressing Windows and I keys.

    • Click on Update & Security.

    • Click on Windows Defender, and on the left right side, turn on.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.
