    Compatibility Assistant Reminders/Notifications

    Every time that I start up my laptop and load up my desktop, Compatibility Assistant gives me the exact same reminders every time. What do I need to do to stop this constant notification every time that I start up my system?

    Application notifications can be turned off via Settings, System, Notifications & actions. Locate the app in the list and switch it to Off.
    Sometimes, apps can add update notices in Task Scheduler and disable any app specific tasks there too.

    Hi, this isn't an attempt to answer your question directly- apologies if you already know this. Just in case.
    Presumably you've received the November TH2 upgrade.
    This is known to uninstall certain programs including Spybot.
    It also may damage your AV/firewall, which may explain why Defender is running.

    The other two have been deemed incompatible and uninstalled, but you might be able to reinstall them, or perhaps a later version if available.

    Other changes made by this upgrade are widely documented.
