Windows 7: SecurityCenter.Disabled

16 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1
 
 
SecurityCenter.Disabled

I had a lady I know call me yesterday. Her computer was acting weird. I ran my usual diagnostics and the only thing it found were 2 things: "SecurityCenter.Disabled"

I am assuming that is not good. She has XP SP3 and because I don't have that I finished the rest of my work and her AV, McAfee, found no viruses.
I keep telling her McAfee is crap and that she has to get rid of it. I guess she is waiting until her subscription ends either in December or January. But being that I found 2 infections with the security center being disabled, I am stumped, everything in there was turned ON but does that also mean that it could be malfunctioning?

Tour best bet is to run Malwarebytes ASAP and remove McAfee. then install MSE.

Malwarebytes is the one that found the 2 infections with "SecurityCenter.Disabled". I'll have to see if they want MSE since it is free. How is its detection rates? They are better than McAfee I hope...

Microsoft Security Essentials is one of the best. just check around the forum.
