    I wrote a message on the Emsisoft forums about WAC altering that Emsisoft is turned off when it is running:

    http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/15777-windows-action-center-showing-emsisoft-is-turned-off/



    Searching for answer I found some threads from 2011 from many posters with the same problem with Emsisoft.



    For example:

    3 years ago on Emsisoft forums:

    http://support.emsis...-action-center/



    3 years ago on Wilder's Security site:

    http://www.wildersse...problem.307700/



    Is this an old bug that is back? Anyone else noticing it (since a do shutdown and reboot everyday, perhaps not as many are noticing it if they leave their machines running perhaps?)

    I have had problems with EIS since the update to 9.0.0.4519. WAC has been off and on. Since the last reboot, it seems to be working correctly. Another problem I had was having to hard reset to get my computer to start and an error message from Eureka.

    Thanks. Emsisoft noted on its forums, to my post, that it has same problem on one test machine. Person indicated it might be fixed in an update (not sure if a whole new version or interim update - I asked but he did not answer which just that it would be fixed.)

    Started doing it to me too about a week ago, intermittently but still a pain.

    It is probably cosmetic as Emsisoft called it last time it happened in 2011, but I do not feel comfortable with it. I assume most people using Emsisoft are going out of their way to get above average protection since it is not really a mainstream product so I would hope they would fix it soon.

    To me it is like being in an elevator and a warning light goes off. Then the building maintenance crew say it is no big deal when you ask - they say it is just a faulty alert. I would not really want to ride in that elevator.

    As long as you know for a fact that your Antivirus is ON! and running, then disable Windows Action Centre notifications, there's no real need for it :cool:

    Basically It's just Corporate Media scare tactics to get you to re-enable the default Windows Defender
