Anti-Virus not registering



The Windows Security Center is not recoginzing my CA Anti-Virus Program. How
can I change this.


Hello Paul,

This problem occurs when Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is not
working correctly on a Windows Vista-based computer.

You could try this:

Ñight-click Command Prompt (in Start Menu\Programs\Accessories) and choose
Run as Administrator. Type (or Copy and Paste) the following command:

winmgmt /verifyrepository

If the system returns "WMI repository is not consistent", type this command:

winmgmt /salvagerepository

The first time you run this it will fail. (It will issue stop commands to
the services causing it to fail, saying, "A stop control has been sent to a
service that other running services are dependent on").

It might take a couple minutes for the services to shut down.

Run the last command again.

You actually may have to run it 3 times before it finally runs and completes
on its own.
