    Hello Gman,

    It's recommended to leave Windows Defender and real-time protection turned on to help keep your system protected.

    To disable it, click the notification, then you should be taken to the Action Center. Click the "Turn of messages about [Insert service here]", and you should be fine!

    I'd love too, but it's turned off by default, I believe, when using Norton 360.So I keep getting the notifications to turn it on in the Action center

    Yep, that would be why then. You could do what wzor posted above to turn off the messages though.

    Do you truly believe Norton is a waste of time?

    That's up to you decide if you like Norton or not.

    I personally don't care for it given it's past track record.

    Your a Windows expert and administrator of this forum. I will take your word as the Holy grail. 😇 I use nortons and malwarebytes. If you tell me that Windows as a standalone is suffice. That's what I'm going to do. I know that nortons uses a lot resources but didn't know they had a "track record."
