frogislandkid does not have CCleaner or Advanced System Care on his computer running XP so cant try those suggestions unfortunately


I believe you stopped short and missed this:

"If you are not using CCleaner or Advanced System Cleaner, or the above steps do not address the issue, see this thread for other alternatives to resolve this problem  http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/protect_start/why-after-a-couple-of-days-after-a-scan-does-my/0dc5b433-28ec-4180-a8ee-26a6cd10c3ab"

 

Try uninstalling and reinstalling MSE.
