    Default Microsoft Security Essentials

    I need help. I use that anti-virus but one day i noticed it wasn't in the task bar anymore, so i go to open it says path not found, so i try to redownload it and it says already installed, so than i go to uninstall it and it won't let me. so basically my computer is naked genetalia having intercourse with the web without protection. I don't know what to do, It might get chlymadia.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    You can install another virus protection system temporarily until you get this resolved. Some people use AVG for free virus protection.

    I would suggest calling microsoft for support to get the problem fixed.

    I downloaded AVG might just use that for now, I just refuse to pay 900 bucks for anti-virus software

    *NEVER* pay for virus protection. Ever. Seriously, it's just not necessary. Most tech reviews have shown that free anti-virus is about just as effective (and sometimes better) than paid-for anti spyware. And I've found every Mcaffee-or-whatever and Norton user EVER had a slower running, POS system not worth using until uninstalled.

    what I use:
    If I know others are using my system - MS Essentials and AVG both. They say not to mix anti-virus wares, but I've never had it give me issues, and it helps when you have kids and not-so-caring people on your computers downloading stuff.
    If I'm only using it - MS essentials
    Anti-malware - Superantispyware free edition (receives mixed reviews, sometimes gives too many false positives, but does the job overall so far as I can tell.. There's definitely more results when I go to shadier sites than when I don't, so it's doing something.)
