plusnet protect and windows 10 conflict

Following recent updates for windows 10 and Plusnet protect, windows notifications repeatedly warns ' computer is at risk - anti virus and firewall turned off. Plusnet protect is on and up to date but is not listed in windows security. Am I at risk and how do I fix the issue? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated as I am keen on security.

Re: plusnet protect and windows 10 conflict

If you are keen on security, I am surprised that you use Plusnet Protect, which is based on a McAfee product.  My personal opinion is that you would be better-off uninstalling it and using Windows 10's built-in security.
