Microsoft Security Essential scan alert everyday

You get an orange icon alert on Microsoft Security Essential, stating "I hadn't done a scan for a while and my computer may be at risk." even when you have done the computer scan.

Such alert is shown if you are running CCleaner everyday. CCleaner is actually removing MSE history file which MSE checks to determine the last time a scan was conducted. In case you don't want to receive such alert, you can prevent ccleaner from deleting the MS Antimalware scanning file.

How to prevent CCleaner from deleting MS Antimalware history file.
1. Open CCleaner
2. Under Cleaner > Applications tab > Windows
3. Uncheck MS AntiMalware
