    It depends on what the "different" AV is. I use ESET NOD32 and rarely get notifications.

    Windows 10 DOES NOT require a Third Party Anti-Virus Program.  It has Windows Security (Defender).  I know, you don't agree with me, but I have been using Windows 10 since day 1 and have NEVER had a Virus.

    Any AV software worth installing will put up notifications if you're missing definition updates. There are new viruses and malware all the time and running old definitions can be almost as bad as running nothing at all.

    Avoid the notifications by actually updating it.
