brato92,

Please do the following...

Open Notepad (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad)
Copy/paste all the contents of the quote box below to Notepad (do not copy the word 'Quote').
Save it on the Desktop as: fixlist.txt

Quote:
start
DeleteJunctionsInDirectory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client
DeleteJunctionsInDirectory: C:\Program Files\Windows Defender
Unlock: c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client
Unlock: c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Security Client
cmd: Dir /b /a:l "C:\Program Files" /s
End
WARNING: This script is written specifically for brato92, for use on this particular computer.
Running the script on another computer may cause damage to the Operating System!!

Run FRST again, but this time press the Fix button just once, and wait.

Please post Fixlog.txt in your reply.


Next, manually uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials version 2 or later (Your probably had MSE v4.*)

brato92,

If you have not run the previous commands in FRST (contained in quote box), please note they were edited to add a couple of things.

If you already ran what was previously posted, that is OK also.

However, i removed MSE from Control Panel-Programs and features, this time it worked.

I've reinstalled MSE, now it works fine.
Thanks for all you've done for me, i appreciate!

One more question, could you recommend me a good total-security antivirus ?
