Security Center tells it can't find any virus protection
« on: December 14, 2009, 11:55:17 PM »
Hi everybody. I don't know why my XP Security Center notify as "not found" the Virus protection item. It's been happening these 2 or 3 last days.

I've checked my avast database virus and it's updated. I don't find anything wrong.

Does anybody know what it is happening? Anything to check?

Thanks

gadsy

Yes because it can be flaky at times.

WSC doesn't detect avast! - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/topics/help/wmi.mspx#EQKAC

Windows XP SP2, SP3 Start, Run, type cmd and click OK from the command prompt type 'rundll32 wbemupgd, RepairWMISetup' without the quotes and enter.

Sometimes, Windows Security Center stops recognizing your antivirus or firewall... So, check your system time and date and also http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=23457.msg193534#msg193534
