Security Centre Alert about Identity Verification

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I have just successfully installed Windows 7 on my PC. Everything seems okay with all other programs and applications but when I try to turn on Virus Protection, I am getting an error dialog which is shown as under:


This program will not run.

Security Center did not trust this program because its identity can’t be verified.

Can someone give me a suggestion what I need to do to resolve the issue?

This is just because, the anti-virus you installed is not known to be from one of the legal vendors of anti-viruses by windows security agent. 

Due to this fact you will have to change the security of your computer and to do this follow the simple procedures below.

Go to security center in the control panel (check on the start menu to go to control panel).

Under malware, click on internet security and select 'show me my available options'. Three options will appear, click on option "Monitor the anti-virus yourself".

After that, go on and run your anti-virus.

Restart your computer if necessary. This will definitely help you out.

If you are trying to enable a third-party antivirus program, try to disable UAC or User Account Control on your computer. Click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “uac” then click “Change User Account Control settings” from the result. In the User Account Control Settings window, drag the slider all the way down to the “Never notify” setting then click “OK”.

And that’s it. UAC is now disabled. Try enabling your antivirus again and see if it works. Since you installed Microsoft Windows 7, you should know that it has its own antivirus protection built-in to it, the Microsoft Security Essentials. But there should be no problem if you want to install another antivirus. Microsoft Security Essentials will automatically disable itself when it detects a new antivirus program.
