general questions.

Have you guys seen any warning signs with the newest root-kit male ware and MSE like extensive scanning within 2 days of being scan

for example today i got "Your computer is unprotected please run a scan to protect your computer from virus" while i just did a did a full scan two days before.

Is that the new version "more frequent scanning" or is it me and normal.

Are you sure it's a genuine MSE warning? There's a lot of bogus anti-malware around, which is malware itself, masquerading as Microsoft Security Essentials or Windows alerts, claiming your computer is unprotected or has viruses, and the only remedy is to click on the popup to run a scan. You will then be told that the malware on your computer can only be removed for a fee. In the meantime, your computer will have been infected with many more viruses. I changed from MSE to Avast for this very reason.
