After XP SP1 installation, activation of windows and upgrade to SP3, Microsoft Security Essentials said that I need to get Windows Genuine?

My brother-in-law gave me his laptop Dell Latitude D610 to work on. It was loaded with virus and almost completely non-functional. I installed an old windows XP Home Edition SP1 upgrade disk (I had to insert my plu too Windows 98 disc) on it because I had no original disks supplied with the computer. I am therefore perfectly legal with that.  I installed it and I activated it until I went through updates. When I finished updates of service pack to download SP2 to the execution of the method to update to SP3. I tried to install Microsoft Security Essentials however it would not load and said I had to VALIDATE windows. I already got it activated prior to all other updates. How can I fix it? When I try to validate windows all I see is a white screen, so I can't go any further!  So basically I have 2 problems I need to validate (the computer says that Windows is already activated when I click on the button "Activate Windows"). And I get the white screen when I try to validate... Please help I know it's legal software, just old.

  • Microsoft Security Essentials icon, absent from the taskbar after restarting Windows XP

    original title: lack of Windows XP icons after restart

    After that I restarted my antivirus, Microsoft Security Essentials icon is missing from the taskbar. It also happened when I have ESET NOD32 installed. When I disable the SSDP Discovery Service, in the section of the Admin, it will appear. But when I go back and set it to automatic, it will still be absent.

    For all that is you probably not need to have running SSDP Discovery Service, for security reasons almost always disable this service on any system that I put in place.

  • E520 stock Windows 7 and Microsoft Security Essentials.

    We recently got a new E520 Edge to one of our teachers, had met with an interesting question.

    When you install Microsoft Security Essentials, on reboot, the Microsoft Antimalware Service goes from automatic to manual and the service is stopped.

    Before you start saying "Infected" do not forget that this system is straight out of the box and had not been on the internet for something else to install MSE. I also restored to the factory settings and tried again with the same results.

    A process that is to recreate it:

    (1) restoration of the system to the original image. (first attempt was out of the box)

    (2) strengthened with the Standard Windows 7 OOBE.

    (3) after the Windows 7 OOBE, a Lenovo window appears asking to activate Norton Internet Security 2012

    (4) does not have activate Norton as Norton will disappear. Norton is still installed.

    (5) do not install Office.

    (5) at this point, the desktop appears. So I uninstall Norton Internet Security 2012 and rebooted. (on the first attempt, I used the last Norton Removal Tool)

    (6) upon reboot, connected to the internet, installed Microsoft Security Essentials, upgrade to the latest defs and restarted.

    Restart on 7), started Services.msc and looked at Microsoft Antimalware Service. It is started and set to automatic.

    (8) 30 seconds later. Service is set to manual. The service is stopped. MSE has a red icon.

    (9) subsequent reboots will not start MSE automatically. It must be started manually. Put back the service to automatic will be cancelled manually on a restart.

    It must be something new added to the Lenovo images, because old E520 images had a different window of Lenovo who install Norton after asking the user, and MSE works very well on them, and I'm half tempted to wipe the hard drive and install that version on this laptop because I have restore media , but before I do, someone has a idea what installed app or rest Norton kills MSE program?

    He solved.

    Made a ton of tests on the laptop and followed the Lenovo RapidBoot problem. Looked for an update, and of course, there is an update that corrects a but in Lenovo RapidBoot affecting the Microsoft Antimalware service manual. Given that the system update does not seem to have the update available, here is the link to get the latest version.

  • Windows Update and Microsoft Security Essentials error 80072EFE code

    I am running windows vista sp2, recently I have problems with windows update, for some unknown reason, which I can't find an answer too, now I am unable to run updates. I tried to install Security Essentials to try to solve any pc problems but cannot do not run as it will not be updated.

    If bound to all, my problems started with my lack of support during the connection user profile, and then receive several error messages (with no information) on the host files.

    Can anyone help?

    When (date about) don't you install Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) and has been the computer fully-patched to Windows Update in time?

    What antivirus application was installed before you installed MSE, was your subscription always news, and did you uninstall it before installing MSE?

    A (another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the computer (for example, a free trial version which is preinstalled when you bought it)?

  • Problem: Windows Security Center gives me a "alert" that my anti-virus is turned off, but I am running Windows defender and Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Windows Security Center gives me a "alert" that my anti-virus is disabled.  I have Win XP Professtional and'm running Windows defender and Microsoft Security Essentials times which I recently uninstalled, restarted the computer and reinstalled more updated.  I read related security problems, but I have not found a match.  I have a screenshot of the Win Security Center Alert, but unable to attach.  It is said: ' Windows found multiple antivirus programs on this computer, but they all report that they could be updated or disabled. " Click on the recommendations for suggested actions... [what I did without success, i.e. update.  «[I uninstalled, stop, rebooted and reinstalled and updated]»

    When I shoot to the top of MSE it says, "protection is enabled, and updated definitions.

    Windows Defender said: "Nothing detected" and "computer running normally."

    Before the uninstall and update, I ran System Mechanic from Iolo, who has done wonders for speed.

    Norman

    When it comes to antivirus software, you want one and only one installed and running on your computer.  Two or more may come into conflict with eachother and degrade performance.  I advise you to uninstall Windows defender and use soley mse.

    also I strongly suggest that you avoid using "PC optimization" tools.  They can help a little, but they often do more harm than good.
