I currently use Norton 360 for all security needs. However, even with Windows' security options off, I still frequently am bothered by notices to download patches that turn out to be Defender updates. I have the updates set to let me know before installing since I've had bad experiences before with Windows' rebooting my computer when necessary when done installing patches.
Isn't there a way to 'deselect' Defender and similar downloads for those using 3rd party security?
If not, any other constructive solutions?
