    5. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware hive
    6. Right click on it and modify permissions to have Full Control right
    7. Change EndOfLife value from 2 to 0
    8. Change back permissions
    9. Start Microsoft Essentials
    I found that registry key and also changed it and then rebooted. I got that nag immediately upon logging in so I removed MSE. Funny thing is I don't think that I even had the latest version since WU isn't working for me. It must have updated in the background. Thank you M$ for once again finding a way to nag us into updating to 10. I suppose that we can expect the same when 7 reaches EOL. Now I could understand one alert but to do so every time I reboot? Unacceptable.

    Failure

    For all I know, I might have been the first to attempt that old seven-step fix running Vista and with the current MSE 4.10.209.0 - and not unexpectedly, it failed. Upon logging in after a restart, I soon saw this:

    Microsoft Security Essentials begins to nag on January 10-mse10209-problem-jpg

    The problem was a BEX involving the file borrowed from MSE 4.4 per the instructions:

    Problem Event Name: BEX
    Application Name: msseces2.exe
    Application Version: 4.4.304.0
    Application Timestamp: 5268459c
    Fault Module Name: StackHash_fd00
    Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0
    Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000
    Exception Offset: 00000000
    Exception Code: c0000005
    Exception Data: 00000008
    OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
    Locale ID: 1033

    After taking the screenshot, I found that I could open MSE via the Start menu - and the UI was still nagging.

    Even if this particular fix could be made to work on an older MSE version, it must be emphasized that a non-nagging UI wouldn't do us any good whenever Microsoft ends support for real. They gave MSE users running XP a grace period much longer than announced, but they have not announced a grace period for Vista that I know of...

    Edit: The fix also failed with MSE 4.8.204.0, and I wouldn't consider downgrading any further than that.
