Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped message in Event Viewer after recent Upgrade.

I uninstalled MSE and re-downloaded and installed but same error on startup.

Anybody else getting this error?

Jim
Yes! I am getting it on every boot now....I have submitted a ticket to Microsoft, but as of yet no answer from them. If and when I get a reply I will post it.

I have been following a thread at DSL reports about this topic - A user there got this from MS ' I had sent an email to the MSE support team and got a reply back today. In part, here's what they said....

From your case description, I understand that you are concerned about Definition updates on Microsoft Security Essentials which is done using Windows update. If I have misunderstood, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Tony, please be assured our developers do recognize this issue and are working on it. As this issue has been hard-coded in the program, it will take us some time to modify it. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we are working on this.


Main thread Microsoft Security Essentials only using Windows Update now? - dslreports.com
And to add to the fire

see How can I get MSSE to update on its own instead of using Windows Update?

The moderator does state I'm just a volunteer and MS does NOT sanction what I say.

Everything works fine but still get these stupid errors and then I have to go look at them and its always the same ones.
Maybe SP1 will correct some of these.

Jim
I just checked and the MSE happens on bootup. I have FoxIt and I don'e get an error. Oh well.

I was not suggesting anything of the sort. I was responding to someone who equated providing product updates with taking liberties with your personal property. Let me also clarify a few things. Microsoft does not sanction what I or any of the moderators say. The MVP moderators here are just MSE users who volunteer their time in the forums.

That's a reasonable response from the moderator and one I agree with. I would also add that this would be true here or any other "unofficial" Microsoft/Windows forums.

As to the MSE updates being done through Windows Updates, yeah, maybe Microsoft should have made it part of MSE's update process instead of Windows. I can see it being an annoyance for those that turn auto updates off, for those like me who leave it on, it's not an issue, so... And do note that Windows Defender works the same way (updates are done thorugh Windows Update).

I'll also add that I agree with this statement with regards to turning off auto updates (at least the critical ones)....

Quote:
Regarding Windows Update, with the exception of corporate clients, for most it should be set to automatically check and install updates. I really don't understand why some people are opposed to having updates installed automatically. Most peoiple don't have a clue as to what is contained in an update so what on earth are they basing their decisions on as to whether or not to install them?

OK we have a fix. After MS worked on my PC for 4 hrs they got it fixed. Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Essentials\Support and delete MSSEOOBE.etl and reboot. After reboot this file should be recreated and the error should be gone. I have found that when you delete MSE this folder remains and the files get updated when you run MSE. It looks like the one file was not updating properly and causing the failure. After it was working I did another test. I deleted MSE and also all the files in the Support directory. I then reinstalled MSE and everything is still fine. If you look at the error under Detail it will point to this file.

Phone Man - same here - except it didn't take them 4 hours in my case - only about 30 minutes. Deleted MSSEOOBE.etl and rebooted - no Event Viewer error. Thanks for post - you beat me to it!

They finished with my PC about 5pm CDT so I guess they have put the word out to the other techs.

I think your are correct - I received a call from them around 6:30pm CDT. I feel better about Microsoft, their follow-up and response - at least they seem to be trying to help the users.

Now if I could get rid of the Warning in Event Viewer for Event ID 4001 "WLAN AutoConfig service has successfully stopped", I would be 100% satisfied. I believe it's just a warning, saying, "Dummy, this is happening but don't worry about it!" lol!

Yeah, me too. For instance, I have completely removed Windows Live from my PC. Why would I want to automatically install updates for it? Obviously, I don't. Another instance would be the update for validation that was recently released. I opted out from installing it, and about a week later it was removed from MS updates. Why would I want obsolete software on my PC? That drives me crazy!
