Hi -
The main reason for this post is because I find all these Antivirus programs saying that they are "Monitoring" my system.
Is this a false reading, or are they actually still there and actually working ??

I have run several uninstallers, and the situation has not altered for ages.
Can you tell if they are still all installed, and if they can be or should be removed some way ??

Thank You -
PS. I only thought I was using MSE and Windows Firewall at this time -

Thank you for that Broni.
As I got this unit second hand, I had not fully checked its history -

I assume you can close this now -

Hi Broni -
This computer (Now XP Pro SP3) has had a full reinstall since I have been in possesion of it .
The Genuine Microsoft XP Pro SP2 CD was unused (new in sealed wrapping) and I was the only one to ever use it.

I do not know of the original installer - (from my current OTL)
Windows XP Professional Edition Service Pack 3 (Version = 5.1.2600) - Type = NTWorkstation
Internet Explorer (Version = 8.0.6001.18702)
Locale: 00000C09 | Country: Australia | Language: ENA | Date Format: d/MM/yyyy
2.00 Gb Total Physical Memory | 1.34 Gb Available Physical Memory | 67.27% Memory free
3.85 Gb Paging File | 3.24 Gb Available in Paging File | 84.20% Paging File free

That list above is from === Security Center Settings ===

Thank You -
