Really fed up with Win Security ?

  Derek 05:12 24 Jun 2007

Frustration leads me to bring this subject forward again !
I've got rid of "Care Line One" but still have bits around that I'm 'not allowed' either to open or banned from opening.
Every time I boot and often during working, the little shield in the lower right task bar throws up a bubble telling me that I'm at risk ?
I click it to get rid of it and I'm presented with a large Window Security Splash screen.
I do not want either the shield or the screen.
I've done a file search under every possible way with words, I've seached both my C and E hard drives but cannot locate anything to remove.
I've downloaded the programmes again and gone through the appropriate way of clearing them out but I'm still no furthetr forward !
Please can someone assist and thanks to John and Blute for previous help.

Try this

uninstall One Care??

Microsoft gave me this answer and it worked!!!!!!!!! Here it is for the
benefit of others:

"From your description, I understand that after removing Windows Live
OneCare, Panda cannot be installed onto the system, indicating OneCare is
still installed.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. This issue is caused by
certain Windows Live OneCare registry keys that remaining in the system. I
suggest we perform the following steps to delete them manually:

1. Restart your computer.

2. Click Start, click Run, type "regedit" (without quotation marks) in the
Open box, and then click OK.

3. In the left pane, expand to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MalwareProte ction

Note: if the registry cannot be found, please go ahead to install Panda
again and check the result.

4. Right click on "MalwareProtection" and choose Permissions.

5. Select "Administrators" from the list and then check "Allow" next to the
"Full Control" entry.

6. Click OK. Right click on "MalwareProtection" and choose Delete.

7. Restart your computer."

If that do not work you have to restore


To uninstall Windows OneCare:
Click Start, then click Control Panel.
Under Pick a category, click Add or Remove Programs.
Under Pick a task, click Remove a program.
In the Currently installed programs list, click Windows OneCare, and then click Remove.

You will be prompted to restart your computer. You must restart your computer in order to completely uninstall Windows OneCare.

end from Microsoft

Assuming you've done the above and it still doesn't work the next step would be to return to a System Restore point at a date before you installed One Care.

Also, MS has a Support Contact for their One Care product.

Many thanks Ambra, I'll follow your instructions to the letter, mind you, some items I've done already.
Regarding Restore, Somehow it now refuses to adopt a restoration at all times over the past 20 days.
The usual comment comes up "..was unable to restore to the etc...your computer has not changed

Thank you again Ambra.
