    You can try to check/remove all policies.
    Code:
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Policies" /f

    I suppose a repair install would short of a reset or refresh.
    I've only just upgraded today to the FCU using a USB stick created by the Media Creation Tool. Wasn't that effectively a repair install?

    Thanks - I might try that. I also found the following commands to reinstall the Firewall (see http://www.howto-connect.com/reinsta...ll-windows-10/. Are these correct and likely to work?

    Recreate the Service
    Rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

    Start Windows Defender Firewall Service
    sc start mpssvc

    Reset Windows Defender Firewall Configurations
    netsh advfirewall reset
    netsh advfirewall set domainprofile state on
    netsh advfirewall set privateprofile state on

    I solved this! I checked the Group Policy and all items were set to Not Configured. I then went through all of the Defender and Firewall settings concerned with Notifications, set them to Disabled then set them back to Not Configured. Why this worked I don't know. Would the commands by TairikuOkami in Post 11 have done the same thing?

    For the record, these fixes didn't work:

    • Running the Kaspersky full uninstaller and also installing the removing Kaspersky Total Security ( I had this installed until last week)
    • Running the Firewall re-installation commands I mentioned in Post 12

    Great news.

    You may have manually set a policy via Registry Editor, and toggling the policy in Local Group Policy Editor cleared it in the registry.
