My Vista machine has been running perfectly for weeks but suddenly I get warnings from the Security Center that my Kaspersky Internet Security 7 is not found and that Windows Defender is turned off. They are both running perfectly so why does the SC not recognise them?

I have run full AV scans without finding anything.

Any ideas?

Some AV software isn't supported officially by M$ or the AV vendor ergo it doesn't show up.

Basically the AV software would provide Registry key to announce itself to Vista, and Vista in turn is able to view
key details about the software. IE whether or not AV SOftware is running and installed on the PC. I wouldn't
worry as long as Kaspersky supports the Vista OS>

XP's security center wouldn't recognize my antivirus program...or maybe it was my firewall. It's been awhile. Anyway, I just turned off the security center so it wouldn't bug me about it. I don't know if Vista will let you do that.

Go to Control Panel, then to Security Center
Click on Check Settings in the Malware Protection bar
Click on "Show me my available options"
Then click on "I have an antivirus program that I'll monitor myself"

That'll turn off the irritating prompts.
Then I'd suggest that you contact Kaspersky support for final resolution of the Security Center issue.

Thanks for the comments.

I have turned off the warnings in the security Center which at least gets rid of the irritation.

I also contacted Kaspersky who believe this is a problem created by a recent Windows Update! Apparently as long as there is an icon in the System Tray the AV is running.
