Windows 10: Lots of Random Notifications? Solved

    Lots of Random Notifications?

    So I get a lot of random notifications from the action center. Most of the time, the notification shows up for half a second and goes away before I even get a chance to read then. Then its not even listed in the action center bar.

    So I've since disabled all the notifications in the settings panel... and I still get random notifications.

    I managed to see the notification this time... It says "Turn on Virus protection".

    However, if I go into Security and Maintenance, virus protection is already on. How can I get this notification to stop showing up every time I restart my computer?

    Yes, I am.

    BTW, where is security essentials in windows 10? How do I run a virus scan?

    I posted the wrong direction's earlier , sorry.

    Open control panel > look for windows defender > click on it and when it opens, there will be an icon in the taskbar.

    Pin this to the taskbar.

    Run scan's when you want to.

    Edit: MSE is now Defender in windows 10.

    Settings > system > notifications & actions. I got the "Turn on virus protection" one a couple of times. Not lately though. My guess its a glitch when defender is being updated via windows update. Its turned off momentarily while virus definitions are updated.

    Windows Defender in Windows 8 and Windows 10 is a combination of Microsoft Security Essentials and the original Windows Defender.
