Windows 7: MSE deleting all downloads

MSE deleting all downloads

For some reason, MSE is now deleting all files I try to download from the internet. It does not matter what type, it deletes everything as if its deleting instead of scanning them. If I remove MSE I can download again, but if I reinstall it, its back to deleting files. It seems to have something to do with a recent update, I tried a system restore back to 1/9 and had no issues. As soon as the latest updates are installed, no more downloads.

Has anyone seen this or know of a fix?

What kind of downloads? ... Is MSE showing a warning on the file you're trying to download or is it deleting the file when you run a scan?

A little more info would help.

I have been using MSE for quite some time and never has it deleted any of my downloads.
So something else is going on when the member is downloading.

Has the member run MBAM and or a full AV Scan?

Up till now, I've never had any issue with it myself.

It deletes any file downloaded, not just certain types. I get no warnings/messages/anything. There was nothing listed in the history either. It only happens with the latest update installed. If I roll the PC back using system restore I have no problems with it, until I update it. I have run antivirus, malwarebytes, and the trend micro online housecall scanner on it and found nothing.

How about the sfc scan from the dos area?

Did you download this MSE? http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
There is malware that poses to be MSE (fake)
