. How can I disable AND restore (step by step) Windows XP firewall and also disable and restore Microsoft Security Essentials?

Read the 'Yellow Book' on Windows XP for Dummies, I learned that if you do not disable the windows firewall and other protection, if you defragment, you tend to gum the system.  I just be reformatted with a Home Edition CD and I have the SP2 and SP3 updates (134!), as well as Adobe Reader and Flash Player, and a few other basic programs installed.  Does anyone know a quick way to disable MS SecEss and the firewall of Windows XP?  I guess its easy just go to the firewall in the control panel and to stop him for now.  Still to learn, people.  Thanks a lot for all ideas.  Dave Becker

Throw this book stupid right now. Do not disable the firewall Windows or Security Essentials. These things protect your computer. Is there seriously a book published there that tells you to turn off the antivirus and firewall!

  • installed Windows 7. Rid of Kaspersky and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials. Good choice? And do I need anything else?

    Just installed Windows 7.  Rid of Kaspersky and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials.  Good choice?  And do I need anything else?

    Kaspersky is a great AV program But for a free option, MSE is also very good. Nothing will catch 100% of things, but MSE is one of the few that do a great job!

    You may download Malwarebytes and run the free version, make a weekly scan. These two together can usually keep your system very clean and safe.
    But do not forget also to navigate safely. Do not download random programs or open attachments that aren't expected, etc...

  • Take off a laptop M4700 Win 7 of trend and put Microsoft Security Essentials on the results in a freeze during startup

    I have a laptop Dell Precision M4700 which came with Win 7 x 64 final. He also provided Trend AV software. When I try to remove the trend, it seems to have problems, but after a reboot, it seems to be off the system. Then, I try to install MSE which seems fine and can even update and run a scan. However, the first time that I reboot after installation, the system hangs on "Starting Windows" screen I reinstalled but unfortunately the recorded windows also includes the trend s/w and it shows the same problem.

    I still have an old Latitude D830 that I have upgraded to Win 7 x 64 Ultimate. It works fine MSE. He had no preloaded trend and drivers are a little different due to different materials,

    Any ideas?

    Hi hajk,.

    It could be a possibility that the Trend antivirus software has not been uninstalled completely. We can use the uninstall tools provided by the manufacturer of Trend antivirus software to uninstall the software and then install Microsoft Security Essentials. Use the following link to download the uninstall utility based on the version of the antivirus installed on the computer Trend software:

    Trend Micro Worry - Free Business Security Services: http://bit.ly/112g0A7

    Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security: http://bit.ly/172zNU5

    After you download the uninstall utility, run the file and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the uninstall. Restart the computer and use the following link to download Microsoft Security Essentials: http://bit.ly/14pG1fw

    Please post the results.

    It happens every time I want to move a file to the trash or in my computer... I have "trusted sites" which I get this file type all the time...

    Can it be disabled because I know what I want

    I completed the change by following the instructions. There is no change, BUT I noticed that:

    1. If I download a PDF in Chrome, it goes to my "Downloads" folder If I try to move this to a file or my office, I still get the warning.

    2. If I have "save under" the PDF file to the desktop, it does NOT ask or the warning does not occur.

    Or, I stumbled upon a "Workaround": just save it to the desktop...

    I made the changes to EI and restarted everything. The alert is always there in IE, and Chrome...

    Also, I turned off Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) protection and and rebooted and its makes no difference.

    I'm confused. I use Chrome 95% of the time.
    IE always control parameter related to this issue, even if I use another browser.

    I returned my IE back to the protected State.

    MSE protection turned on.

    I returned to the 'normal '.

    I think I'll let this one issue at the moment, but thanks for your help.

  • How can I get Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus security?

    After another year of Norton 360, I got the stupid games of Symantec, tired of the ot, uninstalled and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials.  I restarted my computer (Dell Dimension 8200 running Windows XP Pro 2002).  After that, I ran services.msc impatiently as my program of service to show that my antivirus security worked and I had nothing to fear.  Imgine my grief when my service center reported that my computer was always subject to viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other forms of malware.  I thought, perhaps, I had reduced the activity of some vital download too quickly and, therefore, have prevented a good download.  So I tried again, this time with a lot more patience...   This time, I received a message that the program was already on my computer, asking if I wanted to replace it with the new download.  Because the first time I acted in a hurry, I replied that I tried the second download try replacing the Lerna, this time with a lot more patience.  There is no apparent change that showed the Security Center: no protection against the virus.  How can I get Microsoft Security Essentials to act as my antivirus program and my Security Center to recognize it as such?

    Hi David,

    Glad to hear thiings are better. Do not forget to chek that MSE will automatically update the definitions that every 24-48 hours and regular tests are carried out. Also suggest that you go to settings > default Actions and change to quarantine all. don't forget to 'Save changes'. This is recommended to avoid problems such as potentially unwanted programs and the removal of the odd false positive.

    You are definitely not alone in your skepticism about Norton and other paid for antimalware solutions.

    Feel free to mark my initial response as response and/or useful.

    Have a day without malware.

    Kind regards

  • Error: 0x800106ba: is it true and OK that Microsoft Security Essentials disables Windows Defender?

    Is it true and OK that Microsoft Security Essentials turns turn off Windows Defender?

    Yes.

    It's real and OK.

    Read this bit of info:

    If you have Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, McAfee, Norton, etc. installed, they have a conflict with Windows Defender, or turn it off.

    Microsoft Security Essentials has its own integrated version of the defender and it automatically disables the version of Vista in Windows Defender.

    It is not fair to McAfee posing problem with the Defender:

    Windows Defender:

    If you have Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, McAfee, Norton, etc. installed, they have a conflict with Windows Defender, or turn it off.

    Microsoft Security Essentials has its own integrated version of the defender and should automatically disable the version of Vista in Windows Defender.

    Hello, just to be sure I have the correct information, Windows Defender lights not in Windows Vista with Microsoft Security Essentials, as Essentials has its own version of the Defender.  The error code I received is the same as the previous posts in which is: 0x800106ba.  Again, just to be sure, I understand, I should stop trying to turn Defender because Security Essentials has covered it, okay?

    Hello

    Yes; Microsoft Security Essentials should disable Windows Defender for the reasons you mentioned.

    If she didn't turn it off, you should manually have to do it anyway.

    This information explains Microsoft explained:

    Q: is - this installation of Microsoft Security Essentials (XP/Vista/7) disable Windows Defender?
    A:
    Microsoft Security Essentials should disable Windows Defender in Vista and Windows 7, and then uninstall it from XP. In some cases, this does not happen automatically.
     

    Q: what happens if I do not disable or uninstall Windows Defender, if I use Microsoft Security Essentials (XP/Vista/7)?
    A: If Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender are both running, your system can know the performance degradation and other problems caused by the conflict of two services providing real-time protection at the same time.
