MSE Real-Time Protection won't turn on.

Recommended Posts



I was getting on my computer one night and the Microsoft Security Essentials bubble popped up saying my real time protection was turned off, and that I should turn it on. I have tried turning it on multiple times after resetting my computer but it never worked. I don't know much about computers, so I don't know why this is happening. MSE says real time protection is "not available", but again, I'm not sure why. I appreciate any help on this.


I have the Free version of MalwareBytes, and I've done Threat Scans. The first one showed up with a few items that weren't harmful (so it said,) so I just left it alone. The rest haven't showed up with anything.


I have a few important updates on my computer that won't update for whatever reason. I restart my computer, and it says they update, but they continue to say they need to be updated.


My computer is running fine and without problems, I'm just not sure if a virus has gotten into my computer somehow.


Thanks, and sorry for my incompetence,
