Hi I have un installed all my security programmers Avast Zone alarm ect and installed Microsoft Security essentials It seems fine and does a quick scan OK But when I attempt a full scan it stops Has any one else had this problem ? gel
Hmm, I have just read through mooly's link, a bit OTT IMHO. I downloaded and installed MSE very shortly after it had appeared on the scene, I did not uninstall or disable any of my other security programs. I use Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, as well as Sunbelt Pers Firewall and Diskeeper. I have had no problems at all, and am very pleased with MSE, which I certainly recommend to anyone looking for a good, very easy to use Anti-virus and Malware program.
I have been using MSE since it appeared in beta form and am very impressed. Best features are that it has no noticeable impact on performance in normal use and that it promises total compatability with Windows, which is the main reason I had to abandon my paid for security and do a clean install to put right problems it had caused. I firmly believe in not using tweaky stuff and reg cleaners etc. Windows (Vista) has all you need for keeping things running well.
Thank you mooly. I have read 'my main whinge ' link. It was fascinating to say the least regarding what would appear a simple matter, if any thing is simple with PC,s You obviously imputed a great deal of effort Thank you gel
I was still getting freezing when doing a full scan. The reply from Microsoft resolved the matter
1. Open the Microsoft Security Essentials. 2. Go to the Settings tab and select the Excluded Files & Locations. 3. Browse and locate (C:\Program files\Common files\Microsoft shared\Shoebox\Standard.SBT/13638) THIS WAS THE FILE THAT WAS FREEZING THE P C .
4. Add it to the list of Excluded Files & Locations and Click on save changes. 5. Try to work on the Microsoft Office applications now
Remove any existing Internet security programs, Antivirus programs and Firewall related programs.
