On Friday one of those bogus virus scans (itself a virus) popped up on my computer. This has happened in the past and I have always just gone back to a good restore point and restore the
computer so this is what I did this time. I am running Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2.<o:p></o:p>
This removed the virus but now Security Essentials will not run. I am getting the error 0x80073b01 when it tryts to start up. I could not remove Security Essentials from the Control
Pannel but did remove it using Fix It. I then reinstalled Security Essentials and it still will not run.
I have used Defender Offline running from a CD and it did not find any problems. I have also run Hitman Pro Trial Version and it did not fix the problem (but it did find and remove two viruses).
I have seen on the web that I am far from being the only one out there with this problem. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me.
