[ERR] Error concerning Win7 Security Center - Antivirus


kk.

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I would like to point out a possible error I found.

 

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium and have Microsoft Security Essentials installed and enabled.

Security Essentials work as an antivirus.

Windows Defender, as far as I know, doesn't even exist anymore (at least it's not supported).

 

But what I got from Speccy is:

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
Installation Date: 09 November 2010, 19:40
Serial Number: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
	Windows Security Center
		Firewall	Enabled
		Antivirus	Disabled
	Windows Defender
		Windows Defender	Disabled

 

...which I believe is not true...

Hope this helps.

When you install Microsoft Security Essentials it automatically disables Windows Defender.

 

If you open your windows 7 control panel, Windows Defender will be listed there but if you open it it will say it is disabled.

To get back on topic.

 

I too can confirm as a Windows 7 user (32bit), that Speccy (using v1.07.205) does NOT report antivirus status properly.

 

I have both Avast 5 (free home edition) and Ad-Aware Pro 9 and Speccy still reports antivirus as being disabled. Where-as Windows Security Center sees them just fine and reports antivirus as enabled.

This is now Marked as a Known problem.

 

Please do not add +1s (aka me Toos) to it.

 

The Developers are looking into this issue.

 

Thank You,

I am also having similar problems speccy shows my antivirus as ad-aware but I no longer use it now, im running winxp pro sp3 with norton as my antivirus.

 

Please check you have no left over folders from the ad-aware uninstall.
