Re: windows 10

Hi,normski53. Windows will always try to get us to use Defender. After every update, it seems to change settings in Edge as well.

You might want to try the Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool, and go to Settings and disable Defender before you use the NRRT.


That should stop Defender, although you may have to check Settings from time to time to check Defender stays disabled.

If used, please read the Before you begin note, run Live Update after until no more are found, and then restart.

Win 10 requires you to fully shut down for Norton to correctly operate.


Also, disabling Fast Start Up is suggested, as this can cause issues.


Let us know how you go.

Interesting. i have Norton Security installed on 7-10 different pc's. All with Windows 10. Never have I run into this issue. Are you speaking of Windows preview builds? Those are beta builds which means "use at your own risk".

Hello Pats

No, F 4E is not referring to Beta builds. These are the standard recommendations we have been giving out since Windows 10 was officially given out in July 2015. Norton does not support the Preview or Beta builds of any program.

Windows Defender has been doing this every so often..
