Thanks, Corrine
I use both Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. I have disabled UAC for now while I download and get my pc tweaked to my liking. Will enable it when I'm done. Maybe even tonight.

Which FW do you use?
I use the Windows 7 Firewall.
I guess it what floats our boats.
I am very, very careful where I go and what I open and even use a 3rd party called WOT.
Thanks for your input and have a great week-end.

I use WOT also but add my own judgment as it isn't perfect.

jsmoline: Wearing my security hat: I have never felt the need to disable UAC with either Windows Vista or Windows 7, regardless of how many programs I was installing or any changes I was making. The UAC prompt allowed me to visually confirm that what I thought I clicked was indeed what I was installing/changing. I really have no problem approving the UAC elevation prompt.

When I first installed Windows 7, I went looking for tweaks. Disabling UAC was one of them, along with disabling Aero and turning off indexing etc. All are back up and being used except indexing, which I will turn back on. I can't tell any difference in performance either way. 7 is a very good OS in my opinion. I hope it's around for a while. Hate to see XP go.

I suspect that the reason you went looking for tweaks is because they were needed to enhance performance with Windows XP. The same is not the case for Windows 7. IMO, it works great "out of the box" (with the caveat that it is installed on a computer with the appropriate hardware components).

I agree. MS did a great job on this OS. I just assumed tweaks would be needed, like XP. I guess it takes a ME or a Vista along the way to learn from

i just updated MSE manually, now the update status-message looks "normal" again, so it seems that MS has solved the problem.

i forgot to check the "update status-message" BEFORE i updated manually,
so i dont know if it works normally with "Auto-updates" too.
im going to have a look tomorrow.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
