Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter
Click Advanced Menu (bottom)
Click Configure (left)
Click Computer & Files (top left)

Don't forget to re-enable it though!

Thank you. I think I'll follow your advice to uninstall and reinstall using the procedures you suggested. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!.....glmdlm
