    Windows Vista Security Center Issue

      I've been finding posts here and there on other sites pertaining to this but haven't seen anything on here and the solutions I've tried haven't worked. I just got this laptop with McAfee already installed on here with Windows Vista. Just yesterday the Windows Security Center started popping up with a message saying that I did not have any anti-virus software installed or running. I double checked with McAfee and it of course said that all was running just fine.

      Does anyone have any suggestion on how to get this annoying message to go away? I'm so frustrated with Vista that I want to go back down to XP. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

          • 2. Seems to have worked
            I tried that cmd stuff and that didn't work, so I uninstalled McAfee and reinstalled it. This seems to have worked for now. I'm not sure why this happened but I've been seeing a lot of folks with the same problem. Thanks for your help! I'll be sure to revisit this forum if I have any other issues or problems. happy
