"Security and Maintenance" message: "Turn on Norton Internet Security" Windows 10

Upgraded Norton Internet Security (NIS) to version 22.5.2.15 before upgrade to Windows 10 pro 64-bit.

NIS seems to work fine, can update and is enabled.

However, Windows Security and Maintenance frequently request me to Turn on a firewall or security application on my machine (just like the good old days in Windows Vista).

Is this issue known and what to do about it?

It is not a huge issue, but an annoyance that need to be resolved.

Cheers,

Dave

When you get the notification in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. Click that notification and choose Norton then trust app.

That should get rid of that annoyance.

Side note - this issue is caused by Windows 10 not Norton or any other security software. Because it happens with AVG as well.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit / Norton Security v.22.17.x

Thanks for the response. It also confirms that this may be Windows related.

Of course, I clicked to trust Norton, but the dialog returns. Now Defender enabled itself and Windows firewall managed to block some applications etc. I will post the issue on the Windows community forum and try to reinstall Norton.

Cheers,

Dave
