Seems that the microsoft security essential has not been installed correctly on your system so i think that you will have to install the microsoft security essential on your system again. The reinstallation will definitely help you to solve this problem. Also restart the system after the reinstallation.

You have not mentioned the source from where you have downloaded the Microsoft security essential. Because i think that the setupe file which you might be having is not proper or it has been corrrupted. So try to doenload the file from the official microsoft website and then install it again on your system.

These problems often arises when you you have some other antimalware programs already running on your system including Windows Defender,So just uninstall them this could fix your issue. Since antimalware programs which is already running on your computer may clash with the microsoft security essential.

I am also having the same problem with my windows vista PC i reinstalled the Microsoft security essential from my system. But no change ,The real-time protection is still turned off and when you try to click the button in order to turn it on it goes into a disabled state but nothing else changes.
