Hi,   just downloaded tweaking. com windows repair (free)  to hopefuly remove a microsoft error popup that shows just after start up of windows 7, error ox80073bo1  this occured after microsoft security essentials was uninstalled because it kept freezing during a scan,   and would not let me re install,   if the software will remove this error,  please explain how to go about it,   not very technical!   thanks in anticipation.

First, run the free version of MBAM after going into Settings/Detection and Protection and use the dropdowns to Treat PuPs and PuMs as malware, then run the Download Fixit in to remove any residue of MSE - but you do need another antivirus program installed. - Look out for the trial Premium version check box to uncheck.

After running the Fixit, reboot (if not prompted) and see if you continue to get the error code.
