Windows 7: MSE not sure if real time protection is working

27 Jan 2010   #21

Windows 8.1 Professional 64-Bit

That is what I would suggest, but OP has a problem that he needs a resolution for, and are we not here to do the best we can for him? Including telling him when it might be better to cut his losses?

Windows 7 RTM x86

MSE is working like a charm on my PC. Every time I insert a USB drive with malware, it immediately picks it up. I think MSE by far better than any other security software.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

Yes, I`ve often wondered if the programs we use are actually doing anything, who knows ? How can we be sure? Tuneup Utilities is a good example.

Maybe someday we`ll all wise up like John Luke !

Because maybe he thought he would get an answer from one of us, the program is so new, these things are on a razors edge ( Iron Maiden ploy )

Real time Protection -- This one WORKS
Hi there as a Tecnet suscriber I've been using MS'es Forefront Client Security (it's the big brother to MSE) -- very small footprint, definitions updated almost daily and it really works well. It can be installed in Stand alone mode on individual work stations and that's what I've done. ...
