In order to prevent this blockage make sure that your Operating System is tuned up in such a mode that hidden files and folders of your PC are viewable. Go to the folder %User Profile%\Application Data\Microsoft. Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7. In other words, the folder that should be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system: %SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP and %SysDrive%Users[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows Vista/7. In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Efficiency Magnifier (with the icon of avi file, and there may be several of them), having some random name.

Thanks for info on windows efficiency magnifier, though thankfully I do not require it at this time. However, I am at the point where I get the false alert, that conterminously appears and reappears. I have not been able to end the process. I am unable to get task manager to work. I have tried to open the real windows defender program and could not. Would appreciate suggestions as what to do.
