Default Microsoft Security Essentials

When I click the little red shield, it tells me that Microsoft Security7
Essentials says it is turned off.


When I go to Securiry Essentials, it tells me it is monitoring my PC and
helping to protect it, and that real-time protection is on.

Is this a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing?

This is the standard way M$ software works.

Seems to happen a lot on various machines at various times on XP.
Appears to me to be MSE reporting before SC is ready to accept the
report.

I fix them via services (start, CP, Admin services, services, MS
antimalware, restart) or (security center, restart). First step gets
probably 95% of the issues.
