I got rid of AV security essentials weeks ago. Recently after a windows xp repair install I noticed the AV Security Essentials ICON and menu in windows security area. The light is "on" for the AV SEC virus just like my firewall is just above it in the same area.
My comp is fast and no scans are seeing anything. Ive used Rkill, Malwarebytes, Super Anti, RDDS killer many times in safe mode and also without safe mode. I did a windows xp repair install with a homemade cd that came with this comp. I have used this cd before for a total format and never noticed the AV virus. I have also deleted and re downloaded Fire Fox. I am currently surfing on a user account. I wonder if I am safe for online purchases using an on screen keyboard?
I dont care if the AV is showing "on" as long as its only a remnant.
