Re: A new free antivirus program

I don’t have a PC with Win7 any more. But I thought you could go in to programs and Features…the place where you can change or delete programs.
I know that I have run repairs on WLM and MS. Security Essentials in there.
You have apparently tried reinstalling Essentials, but have you tried to do a repair.
The repair did fix WLM for me many times.

I tried installing the program but it didn’t help.
I can check off and on with the free version of Malware bytes and the program Mike told me about, Emsisoft Emergency Kit. I won’t have real time protection, but since I use the machine in such a limited way online, probably nothing will happen, though I’d rather have protection. But because I use it in such a very limited way online, I don’t recall MSSE flagging anything since I’ve had the machine, and I’ve had it for a lot of years.
And after the problem developed, neither Malware Bytes nor Emsisoft Emergency Kit found anything.

Have you tried doing a repair? I think that that might be some where in programs and features. Maybe where you delete or change programs.
I have that version on my older desktop and for months I keep getting a message to update it. I'm not sure that it updates the definitions, but it will bug you several times a day to update the program.
