I know this has been covered before but I just wanted to recheck. I've been using Norton Internet Security for many years but as it was coming up for renewal I decided to remove it and just use MB premium and Window Defender. The uninstall went fine. All check boxes for Windows security are green. What I wanted to check was again, does MB need to be registered in Windows security and if so, how do you do that? Do any other settings in MB need to be changed? Right now everything looks good. Windows Defender is up to date and so is MB. Thanks for any input on this.

I keep that setting off.

No need to register in the Windows security center.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm assuming everything has been done automatically with Windows to allow Defender to take over the virus protection. All looks good right now. All green. 😀

As long as you see this in Windows security you are good. Do not just look at the tray icon.
