Windows 10: Virus Protection Repeated Pop-Up
Virus Protection Repeated Pop-Up
I tried Googling this to no avail.
Windows gives me this notification (plus infuriating noise) every few seconds:
Virus Protection (Security and Maintenance)
That's all - there seems to be no actual information just that it wants me to look at my virus settings. All I use this laptop for is uni work, I have another laptop for general web browsing, torrenting, streaming etc. so I find it hard to believe I have a virus. Regardless I checked my virus software (McAfee) was all up to date and did a few scans. All clean. Pop up still going. Clicking it and clicking close have no effect. It's still going.
It's an "Action Center" setting. I think it is the same for Windows 7/8/10. Just shut off notifications for AV progs there.
I don't know if newer releases of Win 10 removed this setting from Control Panel and hidden it in Settings somewhere, but I think it is still in the Control Panel under Security/Action Center
