Microsoft Security Essentials - no menu item to open it

    I'm using MS Essentials on Vista home premium. Somehow I have lost the menu
    item (Start or Control Panel?) to start it. Security Center reports that
    Essentials is running, but I cannot start a scan. All attempts at
    reinstalling Essentials have failed.

    (I used to use AVG, but after an unwanted upgrade to V9, the PC became
    unuseable due to AVG processes taking all the processor resources).

    What to do now?

    Steve.

    Check your taskbar and you should see an icon there, usually botto
    right of your computer. If its there, you can right click and open i
    and run your scan from there
