Previous topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/298866/says-no-virus-protection-found-while-i-have-one-active/ ~ OB

I was told to post this here instead of where I had it:

On my taskbar, the little red shield with an X through it appears. When I click on it, it tells me under "Malware Protection" that "Windows did not find antivirus software on this computer. I actually have Avira on here, and it is working. Even though it works, it ends up freezing every time I run it, and I can't do anything at all, so I end up having to reboot by holding in the power button. Could someone please help me find out what the problem is? Thank you so much in advance for the assistance.

After reading your other topic; I think you are probably fine and this is simply a problem with your anti-virus not communicating with Windows correctly. You can try setting your Windows Security Center service to automatic and this may fix your problem.

Start > type services.msc > find the service Security Center > right click > Properties > change the start-up type to Automatic
