Hello Guisseppi -

Please check your Caps Lock button, as it seems to be stuck on while you are writing your question.

Thank You -

I earlier submitted a post about not being unable to remove Microsoft Security Essentials. However, when I went on to the CONTROL PANEL icon and saw that MSE wasn't as an installed program. Then I clicked Start and brought up all my programs, I saw MSE listed and I clicked on it and a box said"Sustem cannot find path specified. I then tried to install MSE and the installation wizard showed it was installing MSE but after an hour it kept showing me that the installation was still going. Afet about an hour and a half I closed this wizard. MSE was never installed. No one so far in Blimping .com or in Microsoft has been able to solve my problem. When I check my security Center is shows that I have the virus-spyware and firewall enabled. However, as stated before, the monitoring service on MSE has stopped. I know the MSE was originally installed on my PC but I don't show it being installed today. Help

Have you tried the uninstall tool ? I may have missed it
