When I open my laptop I notice a red icon marked with an X for my Microsoft security essentials. As I open it, it states "PC status is at risk because your PC isn't being monitored because the app's service stopped. You should start it now". When I click "Start now" button nothing happens. Also i tried to start Microsoft Anti-malware Service from service.msc but it gave me error 1067 : the process terminated unexpectedly - Microsoft Anti-malware Services.
I am using pre-installed 64 bit windows 7 home premium, Service Pack 1. I first installed MSE in June 2012 and have been updating it regularly since then. I noticed this problem just one week back.
Any suggestions would be of tremendous help.
