    Everytime I go to Windows security its telling me that my Malware protection
    is'nt turned on, I go through the motions of turning it back on (both virus
    and spyware protection) and it still says its turned off? my spyware and
    other malware protection is AVG and Defender, does anybody know why this is
    or how I can turn it back on?
    Please, please, please help.

    There is a general approach that may fix your problem. All of the commands
    are typed in manually at a command prompt (Accessories menu). Run as

    Method 1:
    winmgmt /verifyrepository

    If WMI repository is reported to be inconcistent, run the following command:
    winmgmt /salvagerepository

    Method 2:
    net stop winmgmt /y
    cd %windir%\system32\wbem\
    ren repository repository.old

    Then restart.

    I've had a similar problem. Reinstall of AVG fixed that, but I had to
    reinstall Vista completely to get Defender to work right. I have no
    idea what caused it, but everythng has been fine since the reload 6
    months ago.
