Another protection program still showing up RRS feed

  • Question

  • How come I still get a message that an old security program (which HAS been removed from my computer) is still turned "on" when I go to check all malware protections?

  • If a missing security program is reported in the Windows Security Center, then its registration was not removed from the WMI repository during the uninstall process. To correct this situation you should first run any clean-up tool that might be available for the missing program (at the vendor’s Web site).  If that doesn’t correct the situation, then you should follow the instructions for one of the methods described in this post: http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2469173&SiteID=2

    You will notice that this post describes a situation that differs from your own, but we have confirmed that these methods also apply to the case where a missing (uninstalled) program appears in the Security Center.
