VIRUSES not detected by Live One Care RRS feed

  • Question

  • About 10 days ago I scanned my Machine at Micro Trend Housecalls http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/, then at AVG live Virus Scanner then Installed "Live One Care"

    2 days ago I started getting random popups Titled "Microsoft Internet Explorer" stating the lack of virus, malware and Adware protection on this machine, neither live protection or programs. They are random messages and allway ask to goto either a Microsoft Live scanner 2998 or PCScanner(?). I never press OK knowing Live One Care Was installed and Active. Upon pressing Cancel, another popup will appear, usually shorter stating I need to scan my machine now, again stated in various ways. This troubled me, They started appearing every 15 to 30 minutes when one wasn't active on the screen.

    So, I rescanned at Micro Trens Housecalls, and viruses were detected?

     

    Questions:

    1 - How did these get past Live One Care, The program is active and rather High Security settings and Scans my machine ever morning at 4AM (with no warning appearing or in log)?

     

    2 - Not only did Trojans appear in my system but were running active?

     

    3 - Also 27 PROFILING Tracking Cookies were detected, I keep cookies Deleted weekly, so I don't know how they got on, these track my internet usage and reports to who knows where, doesn't Live one Care protect against these?

     

    4 - I trust Microsoft for my security in Windows, Can I trust that this program will improve (I want a Microsoft program for my protection ) or do I need a more secure program?
