In my View Recent Events this message is coming up everytime I switch on. Shouldn't the Real-time virus protection be on all the time?
My PC is running really slowly despite deleting all temp files etc and was worried that perhaps I had a virus that was switching off the virus protection. I have run scans but nothing is getting picked up. However a few weeks ago I picked up the malware for virus protection 2009 pop-up which did not show up on my virus scan. I ended up installing MBAM which seemed to fix it, however then Mcafee said that MBAM was malware so I removed the program. I am unsure as to whether this slowing started at this time or when I installed SP3 (a big hassle when you have an AMD processor). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My computer was turned of about 2:15 AM last night and recent events show that realtime protection was disabled. I understand that part. Why is it still showing disabled under "details" after the computer is on? I know that within the program itself it shows VirusScan is enabled because of the "ON" swich and I also get no alert that the aformentioned is not protecting my computer. I do see an enable button under Recent Events however. I was once told by a forum volunteer to ingnore this as this is a glitch as the same thing happens to him on his computer.
I now notice that the night it was disabled it was actually 10/28 and not last night. I hit the enable button and it is now showing the same time 2:15 AM and it is now enabled as of that date and time, so the prior information has been replaced by enabled that actually took place at today's date. This further confuses the issue. Strange
