Solved: Microsoft Security Essentials Is RED RED RED
Security Essentials found something and has quarantined it. Ok this is great but it sayes to remove this software immediately. So I did it. This quarantined file had the words "Windows OneCare Backup" . So I removed everything that said Windows OneCare BackupDon't. Months ago (maybe a year) I thought I uninstalled it.
Now I cant run Microsoft Security Essentials. I have tryed to uninstall it and got an error code: 0x004ff01.
I think I removed all AV and tryed to update and got a code 0x80070422.
I have NO Virus protection at this time and really need some help.

It may be too late to help now but, in case it's not, there is a MS KB article about this;http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2435760 (Note that there is a different article for newer versions of MSE)

There's also a One Care clean up file available from the link in the ESET list of uninstallers; http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN146

I have never used MSE or One Care, so I have no idea if these 'solutions' actually work.

Thank you golferbob, TOGG and lunarlander for you suggestions.

This is were I'm at right now: Cleaned out all AV from my PC.

Tryed to reinstall MSE here is what happened: Error "Windows Installer, The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'epp.msi' in the box below".
I have tryed looking for this epp.msi and I can't find it. So I click Cancel.

Now the MSE window comes up: Error "Cannot complete the MSE installation, An error has prevented the MSE setup wizard from completing successfully. Please restart your computer and try again". With an error code: 0x8007064C.

I fell like I'm going in circles, but I will keep trying.

I will be looking up the error code and follow the instruction, hope it cleans thing up.

If any of you have a suggestion please let me know it.

Thanks again for your help so far.

I had been working with someone from Microsoft but they are now off work for a few day and I'm still in the RED.

Does Avira AV work well with Super AntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Ant-Malware?

My internet went down in the middle of loading AVG. Internet just came back up and I will load AVG again. I'll let you know what I think of it.

AVG is now up loaded and it looks easy. Just would like to know if you did any changes on the setup of it or did you keep this in default?
I also have used MSE for a few years, but when, what ever happened to it, it happend real good (BAD). I tryed a lot of suggestions to fix it for about 3 day. I wanted my PC back and not having to wonder if I was going to get attacked (Virus and such).
So I gave in and changed my protection.
What does that Comobo do?
