Windows 7: Gadgets Stopped Working

12 Jul 2011   #21

Windows 7 RTM x64

i downloaded some crack for a game (dont worry legal, just dont wanna put in the cd all the time).
and got a warning from microsoft security essentials and it supposedly removed it.

but then security center and MSE was deactivated, my desktop gadgets all stopped working.

in services.msc security center is set to disabled and deactivated, me turning it on only works for a few seconds before its deactivated again.

spybot reports and cleans this: Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter_disabled

but as soon as i do a scan again, it's back. spybot removes it.. and this goes on forever and ever.
I checked windows firewall and can't see anything obvious, or in autostart, or in running processes.

Please help.

Win 7 x64 sp1. Oh. Installed AVG antivirus 2011 and that hasn't solved anyting and Sophos anti-rootkit didn't help.

premier69, I'd post in the security forum, you have some sort of malicious software, and you'll get better help there. A Guy
