Norton 360 and Windows Defender after W10 upgrade
Sorry to raise this issue again - I know it has been covered in many other posts - so many that I am now confused as to what to do. Since the latest upgrade of Windows 10, my desktop pc and laptop always give a sidebar notification of network firewall problems on startup.

This user confirmation step of which program to run never used to happen and is getting a bit tiresome.

I probably don't need both firewall protections running, and my laptop seems to be feeling this from the performance viewpoint.
Can you point me at a straightforward set of steps to alleviate this, if possible without changing service statuses and re-installing N360, etc.?
