    dfietkau gave kudos to AGH1965 in Windows Security says ESET Security is switched off   
    Every now and then I get messages from Windows Security telling me that there is something wrong. Windows Security > Settings > Manage Providers > Antivirus then shows that Windows Defender Antivirus is switched on and ESET Security is switched off, but Windows Security > Settings > Manage Providers > Firewall shows that ESET Firewall is switched on and Windows Firewall is switched off. The Start screen of ESET Internet Security says that I'm protected though, and I tend to believe that. It seems to me ESET Internet Security isn't telling Windows that it's antivirus part is active. Is this a common issue?
    Temporarily switching off and back on of ESET's protection cures the problem, but only for once.
    I tried to fix things more permanently by running the following commands that I found on the internet:
    dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth sfc /scannow This seemed to improve things for a while, but after some time the problem popped up again.
    P.S. I'm using Windows 10 Home version 2004 and ESET Internet Security version
