Windows Security Center


Recommended Posts

Hello again ;)

This detection is actually neither an actual infection or a false positive. Malwarebytes' is simply detecting that Automatic Updates has been disabled, something that infections will often do. If you turned off Automatic Updates yourself then you can have MBAM add this detection to the Ignore list, otherwise you can allow Malwarebytes' reset it back to default.

Greetings and welcome to Malwarebytes :)

Many antivirus vendors will actually disable the Security Center's notifications regarding the status of antivirus software installed on your computer because they monitor themselves. Among these are McAfee and Norton, but there are many others that do this as well. It is done so that they can make sure you don't receive duplicate notifications, both from your antivirus, and from Windows Security Center when your antivirus is disabled or out of date.
