    Security center won't go away!

    How do I get my security center icon to go away? Its red all the time, since
    I can't get an anti-virus program to run.

    1) i turned off the universal account control. A terrible feature.
    2) any recs on a functional anti-virus program?

    But I would also consider using one of the free AV programs others have
    mentioned here. I'm using Avast home edition 4.7 with good results.
