I have been struggling to stop windows security virus protection notification on Windows 10 at start-up, Finally I got the solution to deal with:


 'Virus & threat protection. Turn on virus protection' 


This notification  is always came either the Periodic Scanning by Windows Defender is Turn On or Turn Off. So I decided to Turned it On.


Windows Security: Allow Periodic Scanning

To stop the Notification I do the setting in Kaspersky to place Windows Windows Defender as one of Exclusions for application as shown below.


KIS Settings: Exclusions for application


Then the windows security virus protection notification on Windows 10 at start-up become quite.
