You are confusing things, and using the wrong terms I think.

Site is referred to a website. You open the websites in the browsers.

I think what you are referring to as site above is the MSE screen, or MSE window, or MSE interface. Is that it? Then, it won't be referred to as a site, but MSE window, screen, or interface.

Again, you are confusing things.

By moving complete OS to an external drive, what do you mean exactly? Do you mean to make a backup image of it? Or, do you mean to copy your important files and folders from the present hard disk on your system to an external drive, and then format the present hard drive, and reinstall Windows?

What's the exact procedure are you talking about?

If you want to uninstall the current MSE on your system, then simply uninstall it from Add/Remove programs. Why go through all trouble to move complete OS to another drive and all?

Simply uninstall current MSE... download the new version of MSE from genuine site, and install it.

Or, if you want to install a different antivirus, uninstall MSE via Add/Remove, and then install a different antivirus.

What do you mean by "tiles"? You mean image, or anything else?

Do you know how to capture a screenshot? I think you pressed the PrintScreen button, and then opened Paint, and opened the screenshot?
If yes, then go to File --> Save as... --> On the window that opens.. give any file name and then under "Save as type:" .. choose JPEG and save the image to the desired location.

If you want to upload the image to a image site to show here. Go to, or any other image upload site. On imgur, choose Computer, browse to where the image is, upload the image... it will give you a URL by which you can share the image. Save that URL somewhere, and post the link here.

If this is posible to believe, i update everything daily, I never miss a day. I also run some of the cool stuff here everyday as a precaution against any of the "wares", I'm so glad you folks introduced me to sandboxie.
I can't say about the above, because I have never used MSE. But, it seems that it was turned off for some reason, and the reason must be showing on the MSE screen somewhere.
