    No, you should not install Norton after installing MSE. Having more than one antivirus program on a computer can cause conflicts, system instability and performance issues.

    DB:3.55:Can Ms Security Essentials Work In Tandem Or Do I Need To Uninstall Avg kp

    Hi Wise,

    You need to uninstall AVG. They cannot both be installed on the same computer at the same time. The same is true for most classic AV programs. And it's not just a matter of uninstalling AVG, but completely removing it with the appropriate removal tool
    (as is the case with most AV programs):

    How to uninstall Windows Live Essentials
    Once you uninstall WLE, does everything return to normal?
    If not, itis possible that your problems are not related to WLE but could be related to virus/malware etc. especially as programs no longer open which causes me to believe that the .exe association may be corrupted.
    Before proceeding further, we would need to know what operating system you're using including SP level, what internet security and what else may have been downloaded onto the computer apart from WU.
    I'm assuming you're using either Vista or Win7.

    Hi.
    Recently installed the Intune client on a computer that had the MS Security Essentials installed.
    I forgot to remove the MSE before install (as advised in the client documentation) and was surprised to find that after installing the agent it (MSE)was no longer listed in the add/remove programs list and the intune endpoint was listed only.
    Is this an undocumented feature or should I still manually remove existing anti malware apps before installing the intune agent?

    2a. Was
    Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) offered installed via Windows Update or did you intentionally
    choose to install it?

    2b. In Windows Explorer [WinKey+E], navigate to right-click on

    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client =this folder

    Select Properties: What is the Created date displayed on the resulting
    General tab?

    2c. What ANTIMALWARE CLIENT version is currently installed? To find out, open MSE click on the downward-pointing arrow to the right of HELP then select ABOUT SECURITY ESSENTIALS.

    3. What anti-virus application was installed before you installed MSE, was your subscription still current, and did you uninstall it before you installed MSE?

    4a. Has a(nother) Norton application or a McAfee application EVER been installed on the computer?

    4b. Did a Norton free-trial or a McAfee free-trial [PICK ONE] come preinstalled on the computer when yougot it? (Doesn't matter ifit wasnever used or Activated.)

    5. Open Add/Remove Programs make sure the Show Updates box at the top is checked (and leave it checked); then select the
    Name option in the Sort by box on the right. Now scroll down tell me which, if any, of the following updates
    ARE NOT LISTED?

    Most will be displayed as Security Update for Windows XP followed by the KB number in parentheses.

    If IE8 is installed, one (1) will be displayed as Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 8 followed by the KB number in parentheses.

    6. Is Firefox, Chrome or any other alternate browser installed?

    MSE does not include a firewall, nor should it impact your ability to print from the PC.
    However, we've had reports that real time protection interferes with some drivers for wireless network printers. Assuming that printing functions normally with real time protection turned off, you may want to add these program files to the excluded processes
    found in the MSE settings

    Alternatively, you may need to reinstall your printer software.

    If you are to install MSE you will need to uninstall OneCare using the Clean-up tool, else MSE will give you an error upon installation attempt.
    Use this :
    OneCare Clean-up Tool. Using the clean-up tool will ensure that all components of OneCare are removed and it will also set Windows Firewall back to a default setting.

    You cannot keep the OneCare Firewall component since this is part of the suite itself.

    MSE does not have its own firewall component. You may have to use another software firewall or settle with Windows Firewall.

    Hi NiallB,

    You're quite welcome!

    Isn't it amazing that a company producing a product as big and well-known and respected as CCleaner (that many people use - at least those who know about it) can have missed the implications that checking that box by default at installation would haveon
    MSE? We've gotten dozens of questions since they released the newest version. It's slowed down now because many have upgraded and already faced the issue and because there are many threads here about the problem - but hard to find because who would have
    suspected CCleaner? I almost didn't bother with the other two possibilities since this one is so common, but better to be thorough in case yours turned out to be one of the exceptions (and those other two used to be the only ones we needed when seeing this
    problem until that upgraded version came out). I hope they fix that in the next release (or that Microsoft blocks it in the next release of MSE if CCleaner doesn't get their act in gear).

    Thanks for the feedback - it is most appreciated.

    Good luck and best wishes!

    Is MS Security Essentials an adequate alternative to other security software such as Norton, Kaperski etc? Also if I already have such programs installed, will I need to uninstall them before installing Security Essentials?

    DB:3.13:Ms Security Essentials Vs. Other Brands p3

    Microsoft Security Essentials is designed to manage the PC’s real-time protection against malware including viruses, rootkits, spyware and trojans.

    You should not have more than one AV program providing real-time protection. If you opt to install MSE, you should use the appropriate removal tool for any AV software on your computer.

    No antimalware program will provide 100% protection. The authors of these rogue programs alter the characteristics/signatures on a regular (sometimes daily) basis to help the programs avoid detection. All AV vendors (whether free or paid versions) fight
    a constant battle to stay ahead of the bad guys and keep their databases updated and current...in fact we sometimes receive complaints on these forums regarding failure of other AV programs toadequately protectcomputers…see these threads:

    Hi

    I need to know how to turn Microsoft Security Essentials Off.

    P.S
    The reason I want to do this is that I'm having trouble installing Microsoft Defender.

    Thank You..

    DB:3.13:How To Turn Microsoft Security Essentials Off s7


    Actually I'm trying to do the same thing. Trying to temporarily disable MSE so I can run Windows Defender or any other anti-spyware/adware program. The reason I'm trying to do this is because I have random popups on internet explorer. I don't have any other
    browser yet. I just reformated my entire laptop and I already got this stupid little piece of adware/spyware that MSE is not detecting!!
    can anyone suggest anything?
    I do have Norton AV for a30 dayperiod trial that i haven't activated yet. Shud i run that then switch bak to MSE?

    You should never have more than one security product installed on the PC providing active protection/scanning. This can cause performance issues, system instability, and can hinder the effectiveness of both products at providing protection.

    You need to remove Norton completely.
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/msestart/thread/407bf6da-c05d-4546-8788-0aa4c25a1f91

    Be sure to review this post:Check list for installing Microsoft Security Essentials

    You don't need to run Defender as MSE includes the protection of Defender.

    For the pop-ups that may indicate a missed infection,

    Note that you can contact MSE Support if necessary: https://support.microsoftsecurityessentials.com/

    You're likely correct that your problem is due to having MSE and Norton both installed.
    MSE FAQ:
    Can I have more than one anti-malware product installed?No.Having more than one product installed will compete with other anti-malware product(s), and can cause severe performance problems and
    system instability issues, and may limit the effectiveness of the products installed.
    If you cannot uninstall MSE, you may wish to uninstall Norton (in Control Panel plus use the following tool):

    http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_webselected_nav=pvid=docurl=20080828154508EN
    Then reach a decision on which AV program you want to use. If MSE, you need to uninstall and reinstall MSE in case it was corrupted when installed on your computer. If you want touse Norton, then reinstall it after MSE is removed.

    DB:3.12:After Installing Microsoft Security Essentials My Computer Reboots Over Over x8

    It appears that you did not remove prior security software first as this is a classic example of conflicting antivirus software attempting to start up and crashing into each other.
    If you cannot start in Safe Mode or normal mode, you may need to contact support. You don't tell us what OS you are using, so I'll provide two possible solutions, depending on OS, for using the Recovery Console to invoke a System Restore -- it is a painful
    process on XP, less painful on Vista/7.

    http://www.ehow.com/how_5786911_use-restore-through-recovery-console.html
    What operating system and service pack?
    Prior Security Software?
    Any security software still installed?
    A possible reason for this problem is that you have conflicting security software installed fully or partially on the PC. Remove all other security software from the PC.
    You may need to use a cleanup tool to remove your prior security software:

    I have read various posts on this forum about error 0x8007064A. I have tried all of the solutions recommended via various links, including the following:

    1. Removing other AV programs (There are none as this is a brand new system without preloaded software.)
    2. I have made sure that Windows Installer is running.
    3. I have tried installing while in Selective Startup mode.

    I have also tried submitting a support incident. The report incident was responded to; but, the only information provided repeated what I had said I already tried. I tried responding to the email indicated in the response I received; but, the email bounced
    back saying the user is not known.

    I have installed MS Security Essentials on two other systems without any problems.

    I know there are several other threads concerning this problem; but, there are no messages newer than October 5th... so I thought it might be worth posting on a new thread.

    I would like to use Security Essentials; but, I will be taking the computer on a business trip at the end of next week and I'll need to install some sort of security program before I do. If I can't get Security Essentials to install, it will have to be something

    Hi,

    I have tried installing MS Security Essentials on a new HP EliteBook 8530w notebook computer. Each time I attempt to install the program I get the error 0x8007064A after validation.

    I have read various posts on this forum about error 0x8007064A. I have tried all of the solutions recommended via various links, including the following:

    1. Removing other AV programs (There are none as this is a brand new system without preloaded software.)
    2. I have made sure that Windows Installer is running.
    3. I have tried installing while in Selective Startup mode.

    I have also tried submitting a support incident. The report incident was responded to; but, the only information provided repeated what I had said I already tried. I tried responding to the email indicated in the response I received; but, the email bounced
    back saying the user is not known.

    I have installed MS Security Essentials on two other systems without any problems.

    I know there are several other threads concerning this problem; but, there are no messages newer than October 5th... so I thought it might be worth posting on a new thread.

    I would like to use Security Essentials; but, I will be taking the computer on a business trip at the end of next week and I'll need to install some sort of security program before I do. If I can't get Security Essentials to install, it will have to be something
    different.

    I trust that you are also aware that Microsoft Money 2003 is no longer supported or available from Microsoft. if you are installing it from disk, that's not downloading. if you are downloading from anywhere, I would be wary of turning off security as the

    Oddly enough, MSE doesn't steal focus when updating with me. It's just the sudden spike in resource and bandwidth usage out of nowhere that interrupts what I'm doing. I would say that different people's computers do different things, but seeing as we're

    done before that just disapears I nead help with this!!!!
    Assuming you have the same error as the subject of this almost 4 year old answered question, please start a new question with specific details about your system if the following does not help:

    You can manually download the (large file with engine and full definitions) latest definitions from the portal here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/default.aspx


    Check the PC date and time - right click the clock in the tray and select adjust date and time.

    Verify and correct the month, day, year, and time. Reboot.

    If this does not resolve it, see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918355

    Is this a new installation? If not, when did this problem begin?

    Does Windows Update work?

    The problem may also be due to undetected malware.

    Try Hitman Pro Trial Version:
    http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro This program may be run from a flash drive.
    And/or

    Try TDSS Killer:
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-tdss-tdl3-alureon-rootkit-using-tdsskiller TDSS Killer may be run from a flash drive.

    What operating system and service pack?

    Prior Security Software?

    Any security software still installed?

    A possible reason for this problem is that you have conflicting security software installed fully or partially on the PC. Remove all other security software from the PC.

    You may need to use a cleanup tool to remove your prior security software. See this Wiki article:

    List of anti-malware product removal tools

    Be sure to review this Wiki:
    Microsoft Security Essentials Installation Checklist

    (Longer, original found here: http://experts.windows.com/w/experts_wiki/89.aspx

    You may want to uninstall MSE, see this Wiki article:
    Uninstalling Microsoft Security Essentials

    Then install from: www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    Be sure to select the correct version for your operating system and also the language, if that applies.

    I just installed MS Security Essentials and it won't open at all. I have gone through programs and uninstalled all previous anti virus software (one of which was norton). The action center says that security essentials is on and up to date but I still

    DB:2.91:Can Not Download Security Essentials 87


    I have a working internet connection, but when I try to download Security Essentials and other MS downloads I get a "page not found' type error in the browzer.

    So, I downloaded Security Essentials install executable on another computer and copied the installation executable on the computer I'm having the problem with. After installing Security Essentials will not update.

    I had the same problem when I install McAfee prior to re-installing XP. I was unable to get updates from thier site. I did remove McAfee before installing Security Essentials.

    I have validated my XP installation. I did re-install XP

    DB:2.91:Can Not Download Security Essentials 87

    It sounds like there's more going on there than just an issue with MSE not installing/downloading on that PC. You can pursue the Windows Update angle or simply go the "hammer" approach and reinstall the OS. Since you're not having an issue with that router
    and our ISP with another PC, things point to a problem specific on the one machine.

    I need to enable the command anyconnect-essentials in my webvpn configuration.

    When I do show run webvpn  I see:

    no anyconnect-essentials.

    If I go to webvpn:

    (config-webvpn)anyconnect-essentials  ( then hit enter)  I get this error message:

    Clientless sessions currently active:3

    After all clientless sessions are disconnected, manually enable Anyconnect Essentials using ASDM or "anyconnect-essentials" CLI under webvpn mode.

    For some Reason JAVA is screwed up and I can't run ASDM. 

    How Do I disconnect the Clientless sessions via CLI in order to add the command

    "anyconnect-essentials"

    Thanks for your help!!

    you might want to narrow down that logoff command.

    Or you clear everything on the box.

    Hi,
    I am re-installing MS Office Professional Plus 2010 after re-installing MS Office. The installation wizard claims the key is invalid; however, it's the same key. Do I need to re-activate the key? If so, how?
    Thanks,

    DB:2.91:Office Product Key Is Not Recognized After Re-Installing On Same Computer zc

    Hi,
    the most common cause for this, is that the product key entered does not match the product edition installed,
    e.g. the key is for Office Home Student, but you have Office ProfessionalPlus installed.

    DB:2.91:Installing Ms Essentials Antivirus- Will It Slow My Computer f8


    I want to install Microsoft Security Essentials on my single home PC.
    I currently Have McAfee Anti Virus Plus which is effective but frequently slows my computer as it downloads updates and carries out scans.
    Would the Microsoft download do the same, and does it offer the equivalent level of protection?

    DB:2.91:Installing Ms Essentials Antivirus- Will It Slow My Computer f8

    Many thanks for the three replies. I certainly does seem to be a win-win situation, qualitytrusted MS productat no cost, and less intrusive anti-virus protection.
    However downloading Security Essentials is proving troublesome. I am in email contact with MS online support. I have followed their recommendations regarding uninstalling McAfee, reinstalling .NET framework files (suspected corrupted) but no luck yet. I
    am impressed how attentive they are. I will report further as the situation develops!

    DB:2.91:About Anti Virus Internet Security..... az


    'MSE is designed to be left alone and not tweaked"
    That's part of the reason.
    By design, MSE isn't only signature based detection. If it detects activity that is potentially malicious, it communicates to the server to see if a match exists in the cloud. If so, it immediately downloads the newest mitigation instructions.

    The check for updates within MSE is purposely not configurable. Getting updated signatures once per 24 hours is good. Remember, also, that MSE will only complain after the signatures are 7 days old.

    If you are already practicing safe computing, you don't need more frequent updates as the zero day threats or morphing threats aren't going to be addressed within hours of the threat appearing in the wild anyway.

    Of course, that's my opinion. :-)
    -steve

    all very reasonable. I'll still leave mine updating on an 8 hour schedule, as it causes no harm...

    DB:2.90:My Ms Security Essentials Icon Has Remained Orange After Full Scan 7k


    My MS Security Essentials icon has remained orange for the past month with the message that my PC is potentially unprotected. My security settings are to do a full scan once a week on Sundays. However, even after each full scan the icon remains orange
    indicating that my PC is still potentially unprotected, How do I get the icon to revert back to the normal green after the full scan.

    DB:2.90:My Ms Security Essentials Icon Has Remained Orange After Full Scan 7k

    I'm not worried.
    However, your initial post did not include the reason for the warning status of MSE, although we could surmise that from your other details about the fact that the problem persisted after you had completed a scan.
    Inthe initial reply (which is what we typically provide when people report this issue with MSE), it highlighted the two most common reasons (ccleaner, and to a lesser extent, ASC) as well as the last paragraph which included the link to the thread where
    the reinstall option is presented. Prior to the misguided decision of the developers of ccleaner and ASC to include, by default, the wiping out of the data needed by MSE to determine when the last scan was performed, the solution almost always was to reinstall
    MSE. Apparently something went haywire in the MSE database and a reinstall gets that rebuilt.
    If you are still following this question, please do me a favor and unmark my reply as the Answer as it doesn't answer you, but asks more questions.
    The original reply by CleophusRF should remain marked as it contained the solution you followed.
    Thanks,

    It is a video card with two outputs. I don't have another PCIe video card but the computer did come with onboard video so I can try that if/when it starts acting up again. Thanks again for all your help. I will post back with the results of all of your

    DB:2.89:Is Microsoft Security Essentials All I Need To Protect My Pc Using Windows 8 Pro a9

    Thanks again, Le Boule, for the quick response. I'm not familiar with any of MS's virus or malware apps due to my use of 3rd party software for years. I was told MS's apps were useless years ago and I never looked into using them until now. A
    geek friend of mine has been advising me to use MS's MSE for over a year now and that is the only reason for my checking into using them. I don't believe he told me it wasn't available on Win 8 so I'm glad you brought that to my attention. Am I safe in assuming
    that I don't need any other software to protect my PC in the future then if I upgrade to Win 8? If that is the case, I'm ready for Win 8!!!!
