Administrative Event Viewer Error - Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D
Searches give me this thread as the only one with something that might be a solution; however, the solution in that thread seems to be temporary, and the folder and file specified don't exist in my current install of Windows 7 and MSE.
