Hi BugMeister, I created a Windows Defender Offline CD using my XP machine which is has had a clean scan. I used it to scan my Win 7 machine which had the problem. I had the win 7 machine disconnected from the internet while I did this, but was given no option to boot from the CD in safe mode, in fact windows defender offline gave me no options, and ran a quick scan automatically. I then ran a full scan using it. Both report a clean machine.
However I'm still getting message ID 3007 and ID 3 as I first mentioned.
How do I check and repair AV/Firewall settings? (Windows Firewall and MSE).
PS - I uploaded MSE again from microsoft, and reinstalled it. Still getting same
messages. Also a few times now after doing the window defender scan, my machine goes in slow motion.
If reboot comes right again.
PPS - I ran sfc /scannow at a command prompt boot from the tutorial, and got "windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"
