    You can email  the detailed log and I can diagnose more from there and hope I can be helpful to resolve your problem.


    Steps to obtain log:


    1. Go to following location on your machine and copy the log files


    2. If you have Windows Vista Machine log can be found at :

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\OneCare Protection\Support\

    Copy file: MPLog*.* (Files, with name starts with MPLog)


    3. If you have Windows XP Machine log can be found at :

          c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\OneCare Protection\Support\

    Copy file: MPLog*.* (Files, with name starts with MPLog)


    Note : These files are hidden so you have to make sure that you enable show hidden files and folders

    (Open Explorer, Click on Tools->Folder Options->View Tab, Select Show Hidden Files and Folder)
