    Norton Security Incompatible With Windows 10?

    Does Norton say you have a version of their product that is compatible with Win 10?





    See Windows 10 compatibility with Norton products



    And

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As pre the issue description you willing to use Norton Internet Security on your system.

    I would request you to use Windows Defender instead of any third party security software. At the end it is your computer and its upon you that which security software you should use.

    If you have to use Windows Defender you may try the steps provided below.

    • To toggle Windows Defender on and off press Windows Key and start typing
      Windows Defender in the search box.
    • Defender will quickly pop into the search results.
    • Give it a click and the Defender application will steal the stage.
    • If Defender is disabled you’ll immediately know because of the frightening blood red color theme that decorates the main window.

    • Click the obnoxiously big Turn on button to activate Defender.
    • When everything turns green, you’re protected.

    • You can run a full scan by clicking Scan now in the right pane. If you want to disable Windows Defender, head over to the Settings tab and uncheck
      Turn on real-time protection (recommended).

    I am running Norton Security. How do I turn off Windows Defender?

    windows defender & security center services keep turning off


    Are you running any other AV or did you have one running in the past? If you didn't use an uninstaller for the AV, then the remnants of it could be causing the problem. Normally any time you install an AV it disables Defender by default.

    If you are getting any error codes please list those, that will be helpful in helping you.

    As torre suggested, might be a good idea to do a reset or even a reinstall.

    Reset Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    There are also some suggestions listed here:
