    How to disable only "Virus & threat protection" notifications?


    Using v1809 (which is very important because instructions you write probably won't be relevant for any other version).

    I use F-Prot antivirus, which I know is not fully integrated into Windows 10. Which is why I keep getting Notifications every time it downloads a new AV database. Because F-Prot apparently disables itself when it installs a new database. Once disabled even for a second Windows 10 (and even Windows 7) sees it and notifies you to "Check virus protection." Then once enabled it then notifies you to "Update virus protection."

    I can simulate this by disabling/enabling the F-Prot service. I've tried all switches I could find that pertain to security and app notifications. I've even tried Control Panel->System and Security->Security and Maintenance->Change Security and Maintenance Settings and unchecked Virus Protection. That's seems like a logical option, but doesn't work. Even in Sec. and Maint. it states Virus Protection--Currently Not Monitored, and there's an option to Turn On Messages About Virus Protection.

    The only thing that seems to work is Notifications & Actions and disable "Get notifications from apps and other senders." But I don't want to disable everything. In Notifications & Actions I thought there used to be a separate list of all apps you could turn off, but not any more.

    :)

    virus and threat protection

    Virus and threat protection has stopped and will not restart, Windows 10 ver 1709, antimalware client ver 4.12.16299.15 . SuperAntiSpyware installed.

    I have tried most of the suggestions from the support pages, all have been ineffective. Any suggestions

    Moved from: Virus and Malware / Windows Defender / Updating Virus and Spyware Definitions / Windows 10

    There are some applications that are not yet compatible Control Folder Access. It is intended to block Ransomware. Until third party apps catch up, the best you can do is to disable it.

    Open Windows Defender Security Center

    Click Virus & threat protection

    Click Virus & threat protection settings

    Scroll down to Controlled folder access

    Toggle it off

    How to disable only "Virus & threat protection" notifications?

    Can I disable only the "Update virus protection" notifications?


    I have a Windows 10 VM and if it's not connected for more than a day there is a notification to update virus protection. It's getting a little annoying. The solutions I have found by searching suggest disabling virus notifications entirely but I don't want to do that. All I want to do is disable these notifications that say Windows anti-virus is out of date. Is that possible?

    Is anyone else running a Windows 10 in a VM and how do you deal with this?

    Thanks
