Hello

I am having this problem for sometime now...

I running XP pro SP2 ...

I use Symantec Antivirus ver 9.0.0.338

Everytime I start windows, the windows security Alert comes up with the alert to check my AV.

I have my AV up to date but still I am asked to check it all the time by windows security alert.

In the recommendations tab, it states " Symantec Antivirus reports that it is installed but its status is unknown."

the 2 options it gives are :

" Make sure your antivirus is up to date and turned on "
or
" get another Antivirus"

Can anyone tell me how can I make Windows security alert recognise that Symantec AV on my computer is up to date.

Thank you

I would choose option #2. ;)

Seriously though, you can do the following to turn off the anti-virus alerts:

Control Panel --> Security Center --> Resources (on left side) --> Choose "Change the way Security Center alerts me" --> uncheck Virus Protection.

That should do it for you. Option #2 is still something to consider, though. ;)

Be good...
