I have no idea what is wrong with this pc but it is old and I am always adding and deleting things so it might be corrupted. Half the stuff don't work like crt alt del but since running the malwarebytes program it seems to be running ok for now. the defrag thing where it compresses the files for the disk cleanup is stuck on 3 green bars.
"Pops up" ? Weird. That only happens if it's a fake version or if you really have an infection.
If it's not updated regularly it will keep popping up. If it goes out of date, the protection stops until you update or upgrade. That's why I switched to Avira Personal edition.

Run a full scan while Windows is in safe mode. Restart the machine a press F8 just before Windows starts and select Safe Mode. Safe Mode will help MSE get full access to all files.
This is what I deal with every hour or so thats beside the pc shutting down or google chrome not working.
Install Avira Personal Edition and remove MSE, might have better luck.
You could also scan the PC with one of their CD's without loading windows.
entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem
ok will try this all tomorrow as it is still compressing files and depressing me but anyway we plod on.
