Windows 7: MS Security Client sudden appearance

MS Security Client sudden appearance

I've just discovered (over the last 48hrs) that Microsoft Security Client has appeared in my Start-up list. Is this a product of the last update? Is it something that should be removed or left?

AFAIK, it belongs to MSE. Maybe someone who actually uses MSE can confirm?

If you want to check/verify your processes, take a look at the first tutorial link in my signature below.

Sorry, I was not specific enough: it's the sudden appearance in my start-up list that puzzled me. I use MSE and it is a part of that application but has never been seen in start-up till now. I'm quite happy to have security systems starting at boot, I just think its unannounced inclusion is questionable.

Hi all One INDISPUTABLE fact here is that MSE / Forefront client security definitions are updated ALMOST DAILY. I don't suppose ANY of the FREE AV software out there can do this stuff as quickly as MS and even the paid for stuff. So far I'm sticking with Forefront Client security -- (mse...
