Security center won't go away!

Posted: 06-11-2006, 05:30 AM
How do I get my security center icon to go away? Its red all the time, since
I can't get an anti-virus program to run.

1) i turned off the universal account control. A terrible feature.
2) any recs on a functional anti-virus program?

CA eTrust AV

and TrendMicro PC-cillin
https://www.trendbeta.com/index.php?get=80

Avast anti virus works with Vista now and it's free.

But I would also consider using one of the free AV programs others have
