MS Security Essentials

Has anyone any knowledge of a working method to uninstall MS Security Essentials in order to successfully download Plusnet Protect software. I am running Vista 64 bit and on several attempts get the MSE error code 0x8004FF80.

Hi Oldjim
I'm afraid I'm pretty old as well!
The download you suggested has come up with the message "The Systems Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"
Sorry to be a pain but where do I go from here?

That sounds as though your Vista login needs admin rights - try this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/555910
