    Windows 10 notifying Firewall and Anti-Virus turned off


      For last two days my PC has intermittently flashed a warning message



      1. "Windows defender and McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware are both turned off."


      2. "Windows Firewall and McAfee Firewall are both turned off."


      My McAfee Live Safe application tells me 'my computer is secure' ... all options are showing green and up-to-date and specifically firewall and real time scanning is reported as on


      Is this a windows 10 (automatic) update error or something else ? Last auto update to version 1607 was completed on 10 November


      I have noticed an identical  forum question from 3 years ago ( which suggests that the most important thing is the  McAfee Live Safe protection confirmation, but further reassurance or guidance would be appreciated
