I'm usually over in the C++ forum most of the time but I had a question that's been lingering for a while. I've got Windows Vista 64. I use Kaspersky AV, 2009 (v. 22.214.171.1244,latest DBs) and about 3 months ago the Windows Security Alert (Red Shield with X) showed up in the system tray saying that "Windows didn't find any AV software on this computer." I went to the Kaspersky boards but folks were kind of equivocal about whether this was a bug or not.
I've ran all kinds of tests (latest MBAM which about 2 weeks ago found 2 malware exes in the recycle bin-- I presume were rogue email attachments on spam which were only chucked and never ran-- which were clean on a second scan),Ad-Aware (and a Hijack This in case it turned up something I could post it here), but everything turned up negative.
My question (so this doesn't become a novel) is whether this is a known problem with Kaspersky? or is it still possible that something has severed the ties between Windows and the AV or worse?
Thanks for your help.
