NS and Windows Defender Updates

After installing NS on my new Windows 10 Laptop Windows Firewall & Windows Defender were disabled my NS but the update for Windows Defender keeps on trying to download and the install fails, it's in a loop! What is the best fix for this? Uninstall NS and disable Windows Defender before reinstalling NS? Looking for a solution that has worked for other? Thanks, BY

Re: NS and Windows Defender Updates

It has been reported that temporarily uninstalling Norton and allowing Windows Defender to update, then manually disabling WD before reinstalling Norton has worked for some.  I wouldn't worry about running the Norton Removal Tool for this issue myself.

Just uninstalling NISBU isn't enough?  I should also run the removal tool?

Not if you are going to reinstall Norton straight after.  You can run NRT if you want but I don't think for this it is required.
