Please let us know if and when this gets solved for you. It's been quite a puzzle, hasn't it?

I will definitely report back. Probably won't be able to tackle further until this weekend or next week so keep your fingers crossed

Success finally. Restored laptop back to factory settings and then added programs back on. MSE was the second thing I installed after Windows updates. Installed and ran without a problem. I've added back most of my other programs at this point and reloaded my data from a backup. So far no problems. I should note that I do not have any other antivirus software loaded on at this point.

While this issue has been resolved, another has cropped up. I am unable to configure my restore points. I am trying to increase the storage space so I can have several restore points. When I click 'Apply' or 'Okay' after changing the space allocation, the following error appears:

"The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. Error 0x800707B"

The following drives appear in the Restore Config window with Restore set to 'On':

System_DRV
Windows7_OS(C(System)
Windows7_OS(C(Missing) -- this seems odd to me

Would anyone have any insights on this problem or should I post a new thread?

Thanks again for everyone's help.

I would post a new thread if I were you. Glad you got it figured out.

Sorry, those emoticons should not be appearing. Should be "C colon" in parentheses.

Check "Disable smilies in text".

General Discussion? If you place it in the wrong section, the mods will move it. That's what they are here for.
