1.  Run a virus scan with a good antivirus program.  M$ had admitted that MSE is only a base line program, and a full one like AVAST should be use.

"Holly Stewart, senior program manager of the Microsoft Malware Protection Center, has told Dennis Technology Labs in an interview that Security Essentials is intended to provide "baseline" protection and recommended that users install an anti-virus on top of it for better security from advanced threats".

Best of luck.

What AV are you running?If you just uninstalled one,make sure its completely uninstalled and run the file checker.
