    Question Windows Action Center warnings

    OK, first let me state that I've had this computer for a year now. This just suddenly showed up. Only thing different that I did was download/install DVDVideoSoft (YouTube to MP3 Converter). It gave me a couple PUPs but Malwarebytes took care of those. 2 scans with Kaspersky Internet Security (vulnerabilities/critical areas) showed nothing. A full scan of the system drive with Malwarebytes showed nothing. Here's the deal. Suddenly Action Center is giving me 3 important messages.

    Kaspersky is running and updated. According to Services, the firewall is set to start automatically and IS running. I haven't had Windows Defender running since day one. That job is for Kaspersky.

    TIA

    Select "Turn off messages" in action center.
    Since you already have your AV and firewall needs taken care of there is no cause for concern with these messages.
    If you are still concerned about PUPs, run this too.

    Finally got it figured out. Kaspersky got corrupted (don't ask me how), an uninstall/reinstall fixed the problem. At least this time when Kaspersky crapped, it didn't wipe out Windows (been there, done that).
