Microsoft security essentials does'nt scan my computer & comes up with your computer is unprotected


Uninstall MS Security Essentials.
Go to http://www.avast.com/index
Download their free antivirus software.
Install it and run a scan.

Also go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Download their free version.
Install and run malware scan.

Once you have run these two scans and have cleaned any malware off your system, feel free to try MS Security Essentials again (although it's not really necessary).

I recommend buying a license for this software, but it isn't a requirement. Either way it will serve you better than MSSE.

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

My dell computer doesn't produce any sounds and norton anti virus when installed doesn't work. Thanks in advance for the Help. noiz


First, go to the microsoft website and download microsoft security essentials

Second, go to dell website and download and install the ac97 drivers for your model of dell, those are required for the sound to work.

Third, uninstall Norton and install the security essentials.

That will give you anti-virus/malware protection, it's free, and works better than Norton.

Then, reboot, let system get all way booted up, then click start, and at the very top on the right hand side, click on Windows Update.

Follow all steps as directed.

That should fix your problem.

Oh, almost forgot, launch Security Essentials and run a FULL system scan before you run Windows update, that way you make sure you are good to go first.
