Action center messages/crazy

Hello, another issue that I wasn't expecting , after running TFC by Old Timer and clearing my cache in safe mode I got the below messages when I checked action center in regular mode .

My automatic updating for windows update also changed from automatic to (will check with you first before downloading)

Kaspersky says all is well and it's updated so I don't know what's happening , action center is the only thing saying there's issues. Computer scans with various on demand scanners comes up clean.

Any ideas

Thank you everyone

If action center is not finding your antivirus (Kaspersky) that is an issue. That vendor fully supports integration with action center. This can possibly be an indication of malware or a corrupt installation of Kaspersky . Did this problem suddenly appear?

A year after windows 7 launched, all antivirus vendors were required to add code so that action center can recognize their product. This way the user is alerted if something is amiss.

Of course if you own your own backup utility you can turn messages off for windows backup.

Windows update settings, did you change them to download and I'll choose when to install them?

If you did not change this setting, and originally action center reported all was well (Meaning it was automatic before) there is an issue.

Windows defender is not concerning, it is pretty much as useless as Microsoft security essentials.

However, if you use internet explorer as your primary browser, I recommend having it enabled and up to date due to the integration for protected mode and smartscreen filter.



As for the virus protection notice, I would try a repair or reinstall of your antivirus product.

Something just does not seem right to me here.....

Installing Kaspesky requires a reboot, did you run TFC around the same time? If so, some files may have been removed by TFC prior to the software being completely installed causing Action Center to misidentify AV protection.

Sorry for the late response guys , i completely forgot about my own thread.

Kaspersky has never been recognized for some reason , one thing that i do know is that a long time ago i had a system repair pending and it didn't complete for some reason, a possible blue screen or something but i can't remember .

The odd thing is that even after numerous reformats and re installs when i run checkdsk i still occasionally get a "system repair pending message " and at other times chkdsk says no integrity issues and all is well.

One thing to note is that when i do a checkdsk in safe mode it will usually say it didn't detect and problems but when i do a chkdsk/f it will say if i want to schedule a scan after a reboot which i click yes.

When it does a scan upon reboot it will find free space marked as allocated which it never finds in safe mode.

I have probably run every on demand scanner there is and all come up clean so i don't get it. No one has been able to figure out this issue but why not try again.

I have also run chkdsk/f/r and i still get a clean bill of slate and then next time in safe mode back to "system repair pending " message.

Thanks for the help

Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back the results.

If issues persist you can look into a repair install vs a clean install.
