Microsoft security Essentials says my realtime virus protection is working, but the Microsoft security alerts says my virus protection is off.
Which is correct and why do they contradict each other?
This has started happening intermittently about 2 weeks ago, on boot(s).
EDIT: I also have Malwarebytes and Superantispyware installed, but they are not real time. I have had them for a number of months previous to this happening.
EDIT: I am aware of the time lag problem and addressed that some time ago. However, now it does not disappear, and that's why I've asked this question
OS is Windows XP SP3.
