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?

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!
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.
Thank you for further information! I do feel much better now knowing this! ;)
Looking forward to a fix.
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

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! ;)
No disrespect intended. As previously noted I very much appreciate the prompt responses and encouraging tone from the moderators of this forum. Several weeks back someone (poster or moderator) mentioned multiple AVs experiencing this problem and the statement simply carried forward. I share your optimism regarding the upcoming release and hope it clears the Win 10 notification problem. The other type of annoying pop-up (personal security report) has been an issue for 18+ months based on reports other posters. It would seem the Webroot devs and/or marketing folks have opted to retain this 'feature' - possibly as a remider of which AV product is on duty as most hide in the system tray unoticed on a clean system.
I'm aplogize for saying that other AVs are having this similair issue. I Ineglected to check the time line on my link.. I am a Volunteer here that tries to help others the best way I can. So I don't always have the right answers to these questions but I do care about the Webroot members and Webroot itself. This is not a perfect world with perfect AV's. None are 100%. Of course I don't need to tell you that.
I still say Webroot stands behind their product and the Webroot Developers do the best they can IMO ...
Back to the product that is baked into Win 10 (which shall not be mentioned by name).
Just be patient a fix will be out soon.
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
We appreciate all that you have to say. As this would be helpful if possible to notifiy mass Webroot users.
But this issue is also the fact that other AV's are having the same issues. https://www.google.com/search?q=security+center+windows+10&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=_wnbVuXTFo...
As being on the Webroot Beta team there is a fix is in the next Webroot release and that will be released soon

Does Microsoft email their mass users when there is a problem? Just saying...:D
