xp MSE nags...

Postby bdub » Mon May 05, 2014 7:27 am

anyone find the registry key or command that can turn off the initial nag that MSE throws up when booting into it now? maybe a way to get the MSE icon to be green, as well, as opposed to red and looking like it's not working?

What rig, what OS? And why is it red? Because you didn't update and/or did a full system scan recently?

oh, it's xp 32-bit... ever since the "service end" for xp, the Microsoft security essentials icon shows up only red, but I believe the program is working correctly, just it's red to get your attention... and at bootup there's a popup above the taskbar on the right that stays up for a short bit explaining how xp is eol'ed and you should get a new OS. it goes away after a short time, or you can X it out.... but I figured there's prolly a way to end run this. I haven't spent any time researching it except to see a post mentioning there was a registry fix for it. thought I'd ask here to see if anybody had gotten there before me.

short search came up with this...

With the end of extended active security support for Windows XP, you no longer get "automatic" updates.. for any MS approved firewall or antivirus programs, or other OS dependent services.
You would have to manually download any MSE updates.. until no longer provided.

Same goes for the Malicious Software Removal tool.. KB890830.
Do a manual download around the middle of each month:

seems the bottom of this page has the best answer I can find so far, and it entails using a previous version of MSE...
http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showth ... ifications

"for all you XP users out there, check the version of Microsoft Security Essentials installed on your machines.
If the msseces.exe file and their DLL files are version 4.5.216.0 or higher, you need to completely uninstall MSE, reboot and install version 4.4.304.0 from this Filehippo.com page (link is http://www.filehippo.com/download_secur ... entials_xp ).

Far better than just copying an EXE file with an older one that has full features for Windows XP and have mis-matched versions of the EXE/DLL files for the Microsoft Security Essentials program. XP users should stay with version 4.4.304.0 of MSE, period!

And as Khun Roger has said, shut off Automatic Updates to prevent MSE from being upgraded from 4.4.304.0 and also dump Microsoft Update and revert to the plain Windows Update feature on XP."

CUSTOMER: Here's one -- nine pence.
DEAD PERSON: I'm not dead!
MORTICIAN: What?
CUSTOMER: Nothing -- here's your nine pence.
DEAD PERSON: I'm not dead!
MORTICIAN: Here -- he says he's not dead!
CUSTOMER: Yes, he is.
DEAD PERSON: I'm not!
MORTICIAN: He isn't.
CUSTOMER: Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.
