Check the settings tab on MSE to see if:
Default actions are set to recommended action
Real Time Protection is on and all boxes checked
Advanced settings to see if everything is checked (the create restore point is your choice)
You may want to clear out any quarantined items. Also, deleting your history may help, although you might want to keep a hard copy of what items were found in the past.

Install the latest Microsoft Security Essentials definition updates - Get the latest definitions - Microsoft Malware Protection Center
Be aware there is always the possibility that a program/virus is interfering with the operation.
