Every so often, perhaps once a week, a little window appears telling me that the Spyware on my W8.1 laptop is tuned off. However, when I then access Avast, the message is there that I'm fully protected. Can someone explain this please?

Since you have Avast the Windows Defender should be disabled.  Look and make sure it is.  That's the only application I can think of that would generate that message since you do not have another antispyware application installed.

 

Edit:  In Windows 8/8.1, when you install a third party antivirus Windows defender is suppose to disable itself.
