Don't know if this is some kind of bug of just a setting problem.
Around 3-4 minutes after turning my computer on, a little yellow box pops up at the bottom of the screen saying "Symantec AntiVirus - Auto protect is disabled". Then the box goes away after about 5-10 seconds. But when I look at my antivirus settings, auto protect is enabled and everything looks fine. My computer otherwise is working great. I have run Malwarebytes and done virus scans.

This is usually repaired with an Uninstall then reinstall.
