This has never shown up until today
« on: December 22, 2013, 02:44:16 PM »
I'm afraid to run it.

Also action center is showing avast isn't turned on.  Have rebooted 3 times.

Avast is running in the system tray.

Did you update your latest Avast version through GUI, or did you do a complete clean install through custom settings to make sure you didn't install Grime Fighter.

According to those screenshots you have 2 antiviruses registered.
You need to remove MSE.

I updated through GUI and after rebooting it didn't show Grine Fighter.

In windows 8 or 8.1 you can only disable Defender ( MSE ) you can't un-install the program. :)

Strange :o I thought when you update the latest Avast version through GUI it will automatically install Grime Fighter without knowing, and someone please confirmed this issue because I did a clean install and I didn't choose Grime Fighter when I've update my Avast version through customs settings.

It's not installed on my system and I updated. Did not uncheck Grimefighter

Sorry but if you look at the small window closely it clearly lists windows defender AND MSE as being installed antispyware applications.

Do what Bob said in reply #5 first, and than do an Avast repair and you should be okay.

Have you ever had MSE installed.

Hi midnight.

I think you have remnants of MSE still installed on your system so this may be hampering your running of avast.
I dont know if microsoft has a removal tool for MSE,but if it has then it may be worth your while downloading and running it.

Maybe resetting the action center might be helpful too.
Sorry im not much help as ive never used MSE.
Hope your problem gets resolved.

Happy xmas.
