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.

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.
I believe you are referring to Task Scheduler, not Task Manager.
There is an old thread pertaining to something similar to your situation.
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.
