    @Sister Dolorosa

    Open MSE by double clicking the, hopefully green, MSE icon next to the "clock" on the Taskbar (bottom right of screen)Click on "Settings" tab then Real-time protection, uncheck the box (click on it) next to "Turn on real-time protection" Next click on "Save Changes" wait'til MSE turns red then check the box again, "Save Changes" again then close MSE. The Security Center warning should diappear.

    I am receiving a message saying that my Microsoft Security Software is turned off and I am not protected.  What can I do.  I even ran the scan.  I have been trying to get another virus scan but I do not want to pay for it.

    I also can not turn on my antivirus protection. My contract is bought and paid for but I can not get through to anyone to explain to me why this issue exists.
