Weird Microsoft Security Essentials Issue?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ok, tonight I decided to try out Microsoft Security Essentials. I currently use a combo of Avast and Malwarebytes. Anyway, I made exceptions in Avast's settings for MSE and proceeded to download and install MSE. Everything was going fine until the updates for MSE were downloading. Then computer froze. Couldn't do anything, so I had to pull the plug. Plugged back in, and got to Windows login screen where it froze. Unplugged, plugged back in and this time got to "loading operating system" and then and endless stream of dots like my overclock failed (been running fine with it for 5 weeks now). So, backed down from 4.6GHz @ 1.42v to 4.2GHz @ 1.37v and it started back up (degradation? )

But, after i logged in, same problem, everything promptly froze again to the point I had to pull the plug. The cherry on top -- can't get into safe mode. Virus? Dying proc screwing up stuff? Perfect storm perhaps?

Running two anti-viruses with real-time protection on at the same time is bound to be trouble.

Even with exceptions in both programs? I've done it for years on other computers and never had any issues as long as the proper precautions were taken. Even then, I can't see how two conflicting virus software programs would cause the comp not enter safe mode and fail to boot.

At worst, they'd try to take out each other, not system files.

2 Antiviruses + something else?

More than you Oc becoming unstable the real reason is why?

TBH, suprised you were able to boot at all let alone at slightly higher clocks.

apart from that, standard stability techniques are not the same for Sandy Bridge. I can Wprime/ Blend at 5 GHz. with 1.5v. Superpi or booting required 1.52+

Just curious what BSOD code you are getting?

Start with the simple 1st man, just uninstall avast, and check out mse, before you start completely re clocking your system. Will only take a minute, to take it off, and put it back on if you so desire after checking out mse =)

Yes, MSE is a all in one. You only use it by itself.

If you can't boot at all try dong the standard start-up repair/restore using the OS disk.

If that works and you can finally boot, go into msconfig and disable the AV program that you don't want to run at start-up.

Running multiple AV's can be troublesome as some have already pointed out. I run MSE all the time but occasionally I will scan using Malwarebytes and adaware. I just don't run them at the sametime.

No BSOD. It goes through the RAID screen showing my active arrays and then gets to a black screen with just "loading operating system" and and endless row of loading dots that progressively fill up screen.

Same thing happened when I was testing overclock stability -- failed ones with not enough voltage would hanging when loading OS

There's the problem. Can't get into safe mode and can't get into control panel.
