Make sure immunet appear connect to the immunet cloud notification icon

If you do not appear connect to the immunet cloud

1 Please re-open immunet Service

Hey Bamachic,


Windows does not classify Immunet as Anti-Spyware but just Virus Protection. Can you open the Action Center? Open the start menu or press the Windows key -> Type "Action Center" and open the first item that comes up. The icon image will be a blue flag. The window that opens will have some tabs including Security and Maintenance. Expand the Security tab and look for "Virus Protection". It should say "Immunet 3 reports that it is up to date and virus scanning is on" and a couple tabs down is "Spyware and unwanted software protection". I believe that tab is where the message is coming from.


It should give you the option to turn on Windows Defender and the message will go away. There should not be any issues running both Windows Defender and Immunet together but if for whatever reason Windows won't let you turn it on just disable the message and you shouldn't get any more complaints.


Let me know how it goes,



- Reg

Hi Bamachic, especially if you use the ClamAV module you would want to add a complete Program Files folder Exclusion to Immunet for Windows Defender or a False Positive can occur when Defender updates the detection signatures. Not a bad idea to add an exception for Immunet's Program Files folder for Defender as well. That way they should see each other as legit programs and play nice



Cheers, Ritchie...
