I started working on my computer today and was noticing that Windows Action Center was repeatedly flashing a warning. After watching it flash 30-40 times I was finally able to see that is was saying that Windows Defender and Spybot were being turned off. I fished around recent installs, looked through the event viewer, and was eventually able to see that Spybot was throwing the events. I uninstalled Spybot and the warnings stopped. Assuming it was a bad update. I then completed a new installation and the warnings began flashing again. I have had Spybot installed since around New Year and have not had an issue until now. Is there another way to stop the warnings, or should I see if an update in the near future resolves the issue. It is incredibly annoying to have my taskbar bouncing up and down continuously while trying to work. My other concern is that in the multitude of moments that Spybot and my firewall or turned off, I will be vulnerable to other issues. Please advise, thanks.
