Windows 10 Update on AMD Processor and Norton

Should I disable Windows Defender while using Norton on my AMD computer? The new AMD update enabled Defender, disabled Norton until Norton automatically instructed me to download a new compatible version... which I did. Also, should I disable the AMD firewall that is now active along with Defender? 

Another concern is now that I have a new version of Norton do I need to run a new backup with Norton, not certain that my previously backup files are still backed up with this new version of Norton. PLEASE ADVISE! Thanks!!

Hello DavidIsMe

First of all, what product of Norton are you running please? What is the version please? When you install and activate the Norton product, it will also disable Windows Defender, but leave the service enabled, All other Firewalls should be uninstalled or disabled except for the firewall in your router.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Some one else will continue to help you by responding to the rest of your  concerns.

David. When you install a third party antivirus software on windows 10 it will disable windows defender so they do not conflict with one another. Windows firewall will remain enabled due to it being required for windows updates to function. Yes disable AMD firewall if one is present.

PS - Apologies floplot our posts crossed.
