I'm using windows 10 with symantec endpoint, in the last week the defender suddenly started to "pop up" with the alert that the device is disabled and that there are issues with the symantec EP.
this happens when i try to use an Internet Explorer based program, which i use to remotely control a computer.
In the control-panel the defender shows that it is disabled.
The symantec EP is "all green", no errors or alerts.
When the alert starts, i must restart the computer - otherwise it takes the focus every 5 seconds.
