Microsoft Security Essentials

Running Vista Home Basic. Since the last lot of Microsoft updates 13/7 every time I turn on my computer the MSE icon on the systray has turned orange and I get the warning that I'm at risk because it's not done a scan for days. The only way to get it back to green is to do a scan and even though I select quick scan it ALWAYS does a FULL scan. The auto scan is set for 14.00 on Tuesdays. Any ideas how to get back to normal?

Been away for a few hours leaving a quick scan running. Come back, scan finished but icon orange again! Followed jolorna's link and followed the advice there. Will now run another quick scan. Will be away for quite awhile then because taking Kangoo for new brakes to be fitted and in France they never rush!

Have removed MSE, didn't know you could do this, run CCleaner registry cleaner and reloaded MSE from Microsoft after buteman's posting. Now back to normal. Thanks everyone.
