Since May 22nd I have had this problem of when I download a file the pop-up at the bottom of the page tells me that the download contains a virus and was deleted. I have run Microsoft Safety Scanner, downloaded to a thumb drive from another computer. No help. Microsoft Security Essentials is corrupted I cannot install it because I can't uninstall the original install or it detects the new download as having a virus and deleted it from the thumb drive. Needing some help here.
