Windows Security alert

This morning after booting up my computer I am getting a Windows Security alert telling me 'Bullguard Antivirus reports that it is turned off'. I clicked the 'Turn on Now' button and Bullguard itself says it is running and my computer is protected.
Why is Windows Security not recognising Bullguard running anymore?

I did have to turn off UAC last week (on Bullguard's recommendation) to get Backup to run, but until today that was the only Security alert Windows was giving me.

Hello Christine,

That's weird. This problem has occurred just for some clients that have been using old BullGuard versions: 6.1, 7.3. From my knowledge, the problem was solved in BullGuard 8.5. When exactly this problem appears: right after startup, during a normal Windows session?
