Thanks Robear ,

 

Today I have simply did "Reset PC" to get it back to my factory setting (Though I lost all of my data, but I have back up of it ) . Then I used "Norton Removal Tool" to remove Norton which was there in orginal factory setting.

Now I tried to start "Windows Defender" & "Windows Firewall" both are running without any problem.

 

Thanks a lot for help.
