I have Vista Home Premium with SP1 and SP2 - BitDefender Internet Security 2009\nThe following steps worked for me to get rid of the Windows Security Alert\nwhich was telling me my spyware was turned off. I am going to share it in\nhopes it will also work for others.\n\n1. Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services\n(Switch your Control Panel to Classic View so you can easily locate\nAdministrative Tools)\n2. Under Services, scroll and find Security Center, right click and stop -\-\nThen find WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation), right click and stop\n3. Go to C/Windows/System32/wbem (this is a folder way towards the bottom).\nOpen this wbem folder and delete the folder labeled "Repository"\n4. Reboot\n\nAfter following these steps my security alert was gone. I opened the Windows\nSecurity Center and it showed my BitDefender spyware module as on. Hope this\nhelps someone else.
