Windows Security Notification reports ENS disabled


I'm getting more and more calls & tickets from users reporting that they get "Windows Security Notification" signaling that ENS is disabled and there is no AV or FW on the system.

cf. screenshot #1

However, when one checks in Windows Security Center, ENS 10.6.1 is installed and active.

cf. screenshot #2

I suspect this could happen during a transition state of ENS during an update or upgrade...

Can someone confirm this?
Am I "alone" in seeing this?
Can this be somehow "fixed"?

Thank you for your time and help

Hi Serge, 
In the first instance, can you take a look at this KB91428 and check/confirm software version etc.

This kb may also be relevant. KB91830
