I have them, but evidently their not the same as bnwrx, an loboblanco.
Can there be a difference because loboblanco has a Toshiba, bnwrx has an Optima, and I have a Gateway?

I do seem to remember though, they were smilier before I installed MSE, and it took over and automatically stopped Windows Defender.
Thank you Anak.

I'm not sure what you mean regarding more than one design of MSE and the Action/Security Center. The "Security Center" was renamed "Action Center" in Windows 7 and includes access to both Security and Maintenance "actions". Is that what you mean? If not, please let me know.

And yes, I did enter MSE instead of WSE...too much Microsoft on my mind? No.

But thanks to all of you again!

Fantastic! I'm glad to hear that the restart solved the problem.

Your welcome.


When I go to my Action Center what I see is there in the attachment to the left.

There is no reference to MSE only OS updates, and back-ups.

The attachment to the right is what I believe I saw before MSE took control, and shutdown Windows Defender.

Am I missing something?

Hi, Anak.

The image on the right is from Windows Vista (and MSE is shown as not turned on).

The image to the left is correct for Windows 7 and what I see as well. Just click on the down arrow on the right side in the line identified as "Security".

Duh!!!

Before I retired we use to have a saying at work............


"You have eyes, but you can not see"...
Who says you can not teach an old dog new tricks......


One last thing though. I noticed Network Access Protection is off on my system (NAP)
I read where its used mostly for Corporate situations. Would it pay to run it on my small home network? Win7 through to XP SP3.

If so how do you turn it on or does it work automatically?

I know that I'm still learning!

As to NAP, no, that isn't for your home network. In searching for something that describes NAP, the best I located was from the FAQs at Windows Server 2008 R2: Network Access Protection: FAQ

Quote:
NAP provides a set of components to help customers protect their networks by inspecting client computer health state, limiting network access for noncompliant clients, and updating noncompliant clients for unlimited network access. NAP is a platform upon which health requirement policies are specified and by which those policies are enforced. Health requirement policies can include, but are not limited to: software update levels, antivirus signatures, specific configuration settings, open and closed ports, and firewall settings. NAP will work with existing Windows-based infrastructure, such as the Active Directory domain service, Group Policy, Microsoft Systems Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Windows Update Services, and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server. (Some upgrades may be required.)
