    This has happened with each install (RC1 and 2x RC2 on same PC). Security
    centre worked OK initially but after some crash during install (e.g. trying
    to get Visio 2007 beta to work, the security centre kept telling me the
    firewall or "malware" was not installed / working - but it was, and up to
    date. With defender it tried to lad an update - but defender was already up
    to date. This has happened with 3 installs (also have AVG 7.5 which seem
    OK). how can I tell the security centre things ARE working when it thinks
    they are not but they actually are working?

    Simply open the Security Center and select "Change the way security center
    alerts me".
    Then turn off notification.

    I have done that - but this seems a "bug" in vista?
