I get it every now and again with Webroot. I just check and make sure it's still running. If I want to be sure I just reboot and check again.

I get the same thing every now and then with Webroot antivirus. I just check and make sure it's still running. I also check again after reboot.

FYI - McAfee provided a patch for their product to work nicely with Action Center. If you have McAfee V8.7i and want Action Center to recognize McAfee as a legit anti-virus program you need this patch:

V8.7i Patch 3 -- google it

Wouldn't hurt to check your Task manager or run Process Explorer to make sure it is, indeed running.

Just to be double safe.

Thank You... ALL... I turned the action centre off... thanks again..

Windows 7 64x

I was about to recommend the same. I really don't need Windows telling me whether I have an anti-virus installed or not. I am fully aware of what I have running.

I leave mine on. A few bad reports I can live with. If it's off and a bad thing turns off my security like many Trojans, Malware, Spyware will do I want to know.
