F-PROT “Check virus protection” warning in Windows Security

 “Check virus protection” warning in Windows Security


When F-PROT updates the virus signature file (about hourly) it needs to restart the service for F-PROT (FPAVServer) while it loads the new signatures, which results in Windows Security alerting that:

“Windows Defender Antivirus and F-PROT Antivirus for Windows are both turned off.”


Unfortunately, the latest update for Windows 10 seems to prevent users from turning off these notifications from Windows Security.


We are looking into a possible solution for the issue, and we hope to be able to provide an update soon.
