The easiest way to del with this type of problem in MSE is simply to uninstall it and then reinstall from a fresh download - if that fails, then you probably have severe problems and/or a virus infection.

Do as Noel has said mate and if the problem continues I would be inclined to run these

Have no idea what the problem was, and I have had this before. the only solution was (and is) to go back to an image i had saved of one day before the last successful MSE update which was june 21st. It's a strange permissions thing, that I don't know how it gets set to work against me, the admin.

Ok well I am out as I can suggest no more the scans I posted do not take long and I am only suggesting them to eliminate causes from that area.
Good luck I hope you find something that will work.

Microsoft Security Essentials update question
If left to its own devices, when does MSE update? I started using MSE recently, and so far, I find myself updating manually. I've installed MSE on a laptop, too, and after 2 days, I updated manually. I didn't find a setting for updating. Did I miss something? And I have Windows Update set to update...

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.
