    I have Vista Home Premium with SP1 and SP2 - BitDefender Internet Security 2009
    The following steps worked for me to get rid of the Windows Security Alert
    which was telling me my spyware was turned off. I am going to share it in
    hopes it will also work for others.

    1. Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services
    (Switch your Control Panel to Classic View so you can easily locate
    Administrative Tools)
    2. Under Services, scroll and find Security Center, right click and stop --
    Then find WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation), right click and stop
    3. Go to C/Windows/System32/wbem (this is a folder way towards the bottom).
    Open this wbem folder and delete the folder labeled "Repository"
    4. Reboot

    After following these steps my security alert was gone. I opened the Windows
    Security Center and it showed my BitDefender spyware module as on. Hope this
    helps someone else.
