I am not alone I see many others are at the mercy of what ever Microsoft wants to unload on to your computer. I have Norton on my computer to prevent unwanted aps and programs from being installed without my consent. Microsoft disabled Norton Notifications and I had no warning.  So now I have to ask myself what good is having Norton if they can not stop this from happening?

Norton 360...Norton "Intrusion Prevention Notification" turned off.  Normally when ever any program is attempting to make any changes on my computer. Norton will tell me what program is trying to make changes to my computer and will give me the option to accept or deny the changes. There were NO NOTIFICATIONS when Spotify was installed on my computer.

Winkle:

Norton 360...Norton "Intrusion Prevention Notification" turned off.  

Norton Intrusion Protection remains "turned off"?
Microsoft "turned off" Norton Intrusion Protection? 

Curious, what's your Windows OS version / build? 
Curious, what's your Norton 360 version?

Curious, Spotify UWP or Desktop? 

Intrusion Prevention protects you from attacks when you are online. It scans network traffic for attack signatures, such as social threats and outbound attacks, that identify attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in your operating system or in a program that you use. To keep you secure, Intrusion Prevention discards packets from computers that try to send data with known attack signatures. It blocks connections to those computers.

By default, Intrusion Prevention is turned on. It must be on in order to customize the settings below.

When Intrusion Prevention is turned off, your computer is not adequately protected from Internet threats and security risks.

Re: Spotify installed on my computer without My Permission. Microsoft disabled Norton Notifications .

Not only did Spotify install itself, but simultaneously Norton Live Update cannot scan, all Norton features give an error message that I have no internet connection when obviously I do.  So my Norton has informed me that it is unable to protect my computer without the update but will not connect itself to the internet to do so.  I tried asking Norton Help and that too tells me no internet.  This is very bad.

It appears that the Spotify application is getting installed on some Windows 10 and 11 devices automatically in the past couple of days.

According to user reports, Spotify is installed automatically and run on system start, prompting users to sign-in to accounts or sign-up for new accounts.

Affected users may remove the Spotify application again from their devices. Here is how the application may be uninstalled:
