My Windows 10 seems to be running both Norton 360 and Windows Defender

My Windows 10 seems to be running both Norton 360 and Windows Defender. Just noticed the "Virus Protection" pop-up in the lower-right of my screen today. Checked status of Windows Defender and it shows active for 100+ days. News to me. I've kept my Norton 360 up to date for years. Previous threads here don't seem to address this occurrence.

If you have received the Win 10 Anniversary Update, you may have a new feature called Limited Periodic Scanning enabled. This allows Windows Defender to periodically run a scan, even if there is a third party AV product installed. You can turn this off in the Win 10 Settings for Defender.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

As Noble Master Stated above, that is what is happening, turn that off and you should be fine.

Hi, I understand that, but is Windows defender protecting Microsoft Edge. Because there is no extension for Norton in Edge.

No. With a third party security product installed, Windows Defender is disabled, except for the Periodic Scan feature I noted above. Even with that turned on, Defender is only running for that scan, and then is turned off until the next scan.

The browser extensions add extra features to the browser, but the main malware protection for all browsers is the many layers built into Norton products. AutoProtect, Smart Firewall, SONAR, etc. 

So you are still protected from malware if you use Edge.

Norton Browser Protection no longer uses browser plug-ins.  The Norton add-ons for Firefox, Chrome and IE are for SafeWeb website safety ratings and Identity Safe.  The actual malware protection components are now independent of the browser.
