CCleaner interfering with Microsoft Security Essentials

Recommended Posts

For the maybe 3 to 4 months CCleaner has been interfering with the status of my Microsoft Security

Essentials. When i run CCleaner and then reboot/re-start my computer, the status of Microsoft Security

Essentials changes to "Potentially unprotected" approximately 3 - 5 minutes after re-starting my computer

. . . i've never had this problem before and it seems to have started back three versions of CCleaner ago ??

 

Is this something that could be looked into, and/or maybe tweaking CCleaner, preventing this from happening ???

Just untick MS AntiMalware under CCleaner applications then the MSE scan logs won't get cleaned.

Hi 'nodles' thanks for replying...

 

No i don't think i have and/or i'm using 'Winapp2.ini' ..though the file name does look familar, it might have been called 'Winapp1.ini' ..or something like that. What is it, what does it do ? :huh: ( pls. explain in simple form )

 

...as for the link 'http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=34509' ..seems like i'm not the only one.

Hi 'hazelnut' thanks for replying..

 

Your username just made me think of "nutella" ( http://Nutella - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) :ph34r: lol

...anyway. So i'll try your suggestion (i should have known that) ..so what is 'MS Security Client' ?? :unsure:

Microsoft Security Client ("MS Security Client") is also a part of Microsoft Security Essentials.

 

You need to untick both of these so that Microsoft Security Essentials is not cleaned by CCleaner anymore:

* MS AntiMalware

* MS Security Client

 

Piriform need to have it turned off by default, change the naming of it, and put in a warning section so people know it's going to mess with Microsoft Security Essentials because people have been posting about it causing problems for too long now.
