    I installed a new hard drive two months ago due to the fact I've been having minor problems with this refurbished pc. No problem. I installed updates, Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender, or so I thought. When trying to use any of them as well as system restore, and error code pops up stating Microsoft Security Client , An error has occured in the program during initialization. If this problem continues, contact your system administrator. Is my pc possessed? :(

    Try another mouse. Does the keyboard work, properly? Does the keyboard have a touch pad area?

    I don't know very much about your system because you haven't provided the information I requested.

    Please describe the circumstances about the mouse problem. Tell us whatever you think is important. Clearly written, complete but concise details are the easiest for me to understand. :)

    Did you initiate an un installation / removal of MSE? If not, what do you think happened?

    Just a cheapo mouse, hubby's idea. This time I'm ordering on online. It only left clicks.It's a refurbished desktop Pc Windows 7. I got it in Sept 2012 , I paid $180, Windows 7 home premium, after 2 months had to get new hard drive, another $80, which after talking rude to the service tech, Joys System, didn't even offer to pay for the new one and it's still under warranty, don't have the money to ship it back east 4 them to fix it would most likely take month's before I'd get it back. Easier for me to fix it myself.
