Why security center can not recognize MSE? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed a fresh XP Sp3 and found MSE can not be recognized by security center. I reinstall MSE but the problem remain. I tried to stop WMI service, deleted Repository folder, restarted WMI but it doesn't work.

    Any solutions?

  • If Security Essentials is actually installed, and you can run a virus scan, then just disable the alert by changing the Security Center settings to "i have an Anti-Virus program I'll monitor myself."

    Sometimes, the Security Center doesn't recognize the AV program. It's no big deal, I wouldn't worry.
