Also getting "MSE Wizard Error Code: 0x80070780 Cannot Complete the Security Essentials Installation" but not skilled enough to figure it out.

Hello out there. 

This is my first time on a forum and I am a novice when it comes to computer tech so please be patient with me. 
I have read many comments and questions in the forums and this is also what happened to me. 
I have followed many of the suggested steps given such as Add/Remove, Fix It 50692, Fix It Myself Program Install and Uninstall, and I even tried things suggested by Stephen Boots such as "mseremoval.bat", and even went to the registry editor and found
one file. 
However, none of this has changed the situation. I am still being told that I have no Microsoft Security Client files, no MSE, and no virus protection, but when I try to re-install MSE, I get the same response: Error Code: 0x80070780.

I don't have the means to slave to another computer, and wouldn't even know how to begin. I have a 4GB flash stick, but might be willing to purchase something larger, if affordable and/or helpful.

Honestly, I just don't know enough of the more complex language in some of these threads and would appreciate some simpler suggestions or at least something more step by step (such as Stephen Boots has done) for an old Luddite like me. 

If anyone has advice or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.





Cheers, 

Omar
