Antimalware

the antimalware task keeps coming back.  I have used to removal tool and uninstalled and reinstalled Norton Security many times.  The task then disappears but then returns. Is there a way of stopping it permanently?

More information might help.  Maybe a screenshot of what you are seeing would also help.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Re: Antimalware

Thanks Crusty 13.  No screen to shoot.  What I get is when I go to my Win 7 Pro Task manager I see that anti malware has run in the past 24 hours.  I have used the Norton tool to remove it, uninstalllled and reinstalled Norton Security and the Yask Manager entry in Remediation goes. It then re-appears a week or so later.  All updates for everything are done.

Re: Antimalware

Hi billjf,

I believe you are referring to Task Scheduler, not Task Manager.

There is an old thread pertaining to something similar to your situation.

https://community.norton.com/en/forums/how-do-i-stop-remediationantimalwaremigrationtask

It is a long read with many different suggestions, my first question would be if you in fact downloaded the Win 10 Upgrade.  If so, I would uninstall the KB mentioned and the run the Norton Tool.

Please let us know if this helps any.
