Spyware and unwanted software protection

since I upgraded to ESET Endpoint Antivirus 7.3.2041.0, a few days ago, every morning, when Windows 10 starts, Windows Action Center spamming notifications "Spyware and unwanted software protection"

and clicking on that notification leads to the website https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/18900/consumer-antivirus-software-providers-for-windows 

 

ESET works without problems.

How do I get rid of this notification?

What is reported in the Windows Security panel -> Virus and threat protection ?

What version of Windows 10 is it?
While I don't think that Windows would notify you in case of disabled detection of potentially unwanted applications, do you have PUA detection enabled or not?

Since this is a domain computer, I wonder if Windows Defender use has been enabled via Group Policy at the domain level? As such, it is overriding Eset's Security Center registration at the device level.
