Yes.
Norton install deactivates Windows Defender.  As per Windows design.
>> Note: new with W10 Anniversary is > Limited Periodic Scanning with Windows Defender.
Limited Periodic Scanning is a new feature of Windows 10's Anniversary Update edition (link is external) that configures Windows Defender to scan the system in intervals even if other antivirus solutions are used primarily.

We do not recommend enabling Windows Defender's Limited Periodic Scanning feature on a Windows 10 system running Norton. Limited Periodic Scanning is redundant and will require unnecessary additional power consumption and may result in conflicting notifications and messaging.

Re: Norton Security 22.7 compatibility with windows 10 Anniversary update

How can I enable  Limited Periodic Scanning? I understand that it is not recommended as redundant, but I wouldn't mind for a second opinion once in a month. I don't seem to be able to do so (the option is grayed out), because "this app is turned off by group policy". However, after opening the Group Police Editor, I found not such policy enabled under Windows Defender. 

Thanks,

John

Never mind, found it...

In Registry Editor > HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsDefender change the 'DisableAntiSpyware' value from 1 to 0.

It would appear so by the name of the entry, but it doesn't turn on real time protection. The only difference is that I am now able to launch the UI of Windows Defender and change its settings - except real time protection which is still grayed-out (it is grayed out at the 'on' position, but it is off).

Do you want Windows Defender On..?

When you enable Windows Defender Periodic Scanning on Windows 10, you will be able to use the user interface and history tab of the program to manage threats even if the application itself is not turned on.

Re: Norton Security 22.7 compatibility with windows 10 Anniversary update

I don't get your point... I turned on periodic scanning keeping real time protection off. I don't want Defender's protection on. In case you are wondering about the 'cloud-based protection' setting being active (compared to your image), I'm not sure why that is. Microsoft has apparently messed the settings with every new update they release. Anyway, if I get any conflicts or slowdowns I will turn it all the way off again! I am just curious about the new feature! 

Thanks,

John

This thread seems to have gotten off topic. In answer to your original question, Yes. Norton v22.7.0.76 is compatible with Win 10 Anniversary update. I just allowed Windows update to do the upgrade for me. After the restart, my Norton is working correctly.

Re: Norton Security 22.7 compatibility with windows 10 Anniversary update

I have just installed NS 22.7 and updated it through manual live update, i was asked for restart and did the same, now everything seems working fine.

Regarding defender- it is turned off and limited periodic scanning is also turned off by default after installing NS. The only thing i noticed is little slow down when system starts, but that remain for couple of seconds.

Re: Norton Security 22.7 compatibility with windows 10 Anniversary update

Hi, after updating to Windows 10 Anniversary update trying to perform a quick scan or a full scan fails just after starting with the message "Error During Scan".  Windows Defender is turned off and Limited Periodic Scanning is turned off.  Version check states that I have the latest version of Norton Security.

Have you restarted your computer? The anniversary update turned the Fast Startup feature back on for many users. You might want to turn it off again.

Did you turn off Fast Startup and restart the computer?

Re: Norton Security 22.7 compatibility with windows 10 Anniversary update

Hello

I did mention back on Aug. 5 to keep Fast Startup off. I did forget about restarting, but that should be done for any major update. I would also suggest that you restart your computer at least once a day if possible and get the latest updates.

Thanks.
