I really hope someone has some suggestions as to why Microsoft Security Essentials would be off when I restart my computer or turn my computer off and back on. Yet it would not do that when I created a new user. It is imperative that I get this working because the program I log into for work is under the account I have always used and have never had a problem with any of the programs that are on the desktop.
I contacted Microsoft yesterday and did what they said. They sent an email saying that they would get back with me today. Of course I haven't heard anything and am concerned because I don't know if the problem I'm having with Microsoft Security Essentials is causing the problems I am having when I log into the software that I have to use work.
I will keep checking back to see if anyone has responsded with what I need to do to fix this problem.
I have to use Microsoft Security Essentials because of the job I do from home. It is the software that they require you to use. The problem is that every time I either restart my computer or turn my computer off and back on the microsoft security essentials is off. This is what the box says after my computer restarts or I turn it back on "Security Essentials could not turn on real-time protection. This operation returned because time out period expired". What does that mean.
Here is are the two things I have tried so far:
1) Un-install and re-install Microsoft Security Essentials and it still does the same thing.
2) Created a new user account and it works just fine with the new user account.
The problem is that I need for it to work under my account like it had been doing all along till recently because everything I use and the program I log into work for is under my name with a password.
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem. I look forward to any assistance you can give me.
