Windows 10 Action Center Notification
The Windows 10 Action Center is constantly giving me a notification to check my antivirus software. The message states that both Webroot and Windows Defender are turned off. When I check Security and Maintenance in the Control Panel, it says that Webroot Secure Anywhere virus protection and spyware protection is turned on. I just recently started receiving this notification after months of running the computer with the upgrade to Windows 10. I do have Windows Defender turned off, because my prefernce is to run Webroot. I have run several "deep" scans with my Webroot app with zero threats found. Any suggestions?

Thank you and I appreciate your responses. I wish I could help with the Personal Security Reports. Because I do hear of this occuring....and all we can say is to click out of them. :@:
Anyways have a Good night! ;)
I'm the one that posted the link to other AV's were having those issues as well but true some are not in the same timelime but it does show other AV's had simular issues to what WSA is having for the past month with Action Center. There have been so many changes in Windows 10 which will cause these types of issues and here is a new Google search with recent results: https://www.google.ca/search?q=action+center+reports+antivirus+turned+off&biw=1920&bih=883&source=lnt&tbs=cdr%3A1%2Ccd_min%3A2016-02-01%2Ccd_max%3A2016-04-01&tbm=#tbs=cdr:1%2Ccd_min:2016-02-01%2Ccd_max:2016-04-01&q=action+center+reports+antivirus+turned+off

Looking forward to a fix.
Thank you for further information! I do feel much better now knowing this! ;)
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
We appreciate your patience in this matter. And us Beta Testers are working on this and we expect an update soon that will resolve this issue.
The faux Win 10 Action Center notification issue appears to have abated on my primary workstation following a reboot. Nothing of note was installed just prior to or immediately following the reboot other than KB3119142 which is related to 2012 Visual C++. Seems an unlikely correlation. Not sure what happened when - just happy the spamming has stopped. Yeah!
