Windows 10 says NIS turned off: NIS icon shows green tick and all OK

I keep getting messages from Windows 10 asking to turn on a firewall/antivirus etc.  I have Norton Internet Security installed.  The icon on the task bar shows a green tick and opening the NIS control panel shows all to be OK.  Going to Windows Control Panel Security and Maintenance shows that NIS is turned off!  So for that matter is Windows Defender.  Is there a way to resolve this conflict?

Thanks very much for that.  It seems I am not alone and must wait for a fix in due course.  The good thing is that Norton seems to be working, notwithstanding Windows blood curdling warnings!

Hello Froxfield

The latest update should fix your issue between your product and the Action Center. Version 22.5.5.14 was pulled to fix this issue. Version 22.5.5.15 was just issued to fix that issue, so I believe it would fix your issue. Please run Live Update until you receive that new version. It may be necessary for you to restart your computer and run Live Update again to get the update to Version 22.5.5.15 to come thru. Once it does show up, please run Live Update again.

Please do let us know if this fixed  your issue.

Thanks.
