    my system is windows xp sp3 i'am using microsoft security essentials for my anti-virus, it updates itself every day when i switch on, this update is Software Distribution Service 3.0 (KB972696) also goes into my system restore, can i stop this coming in or should i get rid of MSE. Microsoft update says this update once installed cannot be removed,does this mean if i start up every day for the year i will have 365 KB972696 in my updates + 90system restore points . :confused:

    Interesting response, flavalle. Other members are singing the praises of Microsoft Security Essentials and recommending it to people over the products you've listed.
