Microsoft Security Essentials-Failed Validation


Fishbox

Likes # 0

On occasions over the last few months I have had a pop-up warning me that my system has failed validation and that I could lose MSE protection after 30 days if I don't address the problem. However,when I run the prompted validation check all is well. More of a nuisance than a problem.I'm running XP SP3 and it IS genuine Windows!! Anyone else experiencing this,please?
