Windows 7: microsoft security essentials not working and windows update error

the path just seems to be C:\Windows;C:\Windows\system32

(I found the folder wbem in system 32)
'

which I think is some kind of error, as it seems to be written twice or something and it also bears no resemblance of your example path above!



In the meantime , I'm going to do the Hitman scan and delete everything that is useless that could potentially carry adware. Then delete the free version of hitman as advised earlier, I will also do a full scan of MSE to do a similar job.

Hi, so Ive just completed a full MSE scan and the results are attached. I will remove them in the next hour unless told otherwise

I will move onto the Hitman scan again which I know seems to pickup alot of things in either misjudgement but also revelas alot of adware and unused applications. This will be useful for finding perhaps the cause of these trojans/malware.

yeh I think I ran that, I followed all instructions from before so I did.


MSE alert is stuck at 75% in removing all four of them. The MSE main window is saying it is protected though(red to green). Basically I have been here (see attached) for the past hour

I ended it in the task manager, shutdown, failed to configure the installed 19 updates 40.3mb mentioned earlier.

Logging back into Microsoft security essentials it appears the only one not removed was the Backdoor:Win32/Pasur!rts

Does this virus allow remote access to that program on my pc? Im manually deleting this Backdoor:Win32/Pasur!rt now now, and then re-runing MSE full scan. The hoping I can update (quite doubtful)

my internet explorer just doesnt work. I noticed the other day in the half a year since I ever open it. I used to have two version 32 bit and 64 bit and no add on version or something. Now when I click on the only remaining version just 'internet explorer' it opens up a blank white webpage and nothing works like google, the link bar.
AH problem solved, ran as administrater. hold on

Windows XP Microsoft Security Essentials Available via MS Update
So today, I decided to patch up my Windows XP netbook and came across Microsoft Security Essentials in the Software section. I thought Windows XP End of Support (April 8) was the day that MS would stop providing downloads for MSE, so I wondered if it was just an installer, so I checked the update...

Microsoft Security Essentials Stops Working
For several weeks MSE stops working and either will restart or must be manually restarted. I have been unable to repeat the event. It happens after a boot, and / or spontaneously. I have this error report which means nothing to me. Can anyone make sense of it? Thanks Richard

Microsoft Security Essentials Update Utility
One disadvantage of Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is that it uses Windows Update to update the virus definition files. If you disabled the Windows update for some reasons MSE won’t update anymore. The MSE Update Utility can be used here to update MSE even if Windows Update is disabled.
