Security center from Windows Vista SP1 reporting wrongly
Posted by david, July 16, 2009
In the past few days, we have had reports from our customers regarding a notification from Windows Security Center (WSC) of Vista SP1 machines indicating that the Virus Protection is not compatible although the antivirus is actually working fine.
The guys from Microsoft’s Windows Security Center Team contacted us to inform that this isn’t the expected behavior and they are working hard to find a solution for this error.
On the other hand, we are currently developing an autofix (automatic hotfix) for our 2009 and 2010 products which will solve the problem by changing the way our products register against WSC. This autofix will be available through automatic updates during the next weeks.
The immediate solution is pretty easy, just navigate to Windows Update website and install Windows Vista’s Service Pack 2. Don’t you think it’s a good opportunity to update your system to Vista SP2? This update not only will solve this small problem but will also fix several security bugs.
