SBS 2008 Console Cannot Query Vipre

I have a network with assorted OSs (Win7 32bit, win7 64bit, vista 32, and xp 32). My servers are SBS 2008 standard (virtual) on a single physical box.
All of my client machines have Vipre anti-virus installed and are managed through the enterprise console on a non-DC server.

All machines report an OK status in the SBS Console for security status except for a single Win7 64bit machine. It is reporting "no antivirus product found".

I have reinstalled the antivirus program a few times and restarted the client.

Has anyone ever encountered this problem? I suspect it is a client-side issue, but as I've said...there are other machines with the exact same config that report just fine.

Can you install a free antivirus (microsoft essentials, avg...) to see if antivirus registeres properly? If it does there could be something wrong when Vipre attempts to register. Sunbelt support should be able to help out with that.

MSE shouldn't register on a domain since it's only meant to be a residential solution.

I'll check with Sunbelt. I was just wondering if someone knew something about WMI issues etc. As I've said, all the other machines register just fine.

MSE will register in a domain. Microsoft changed their policy making it available to small businesses.

Right...I forgot about that. Only up to 10 clients though - regardless, I have one machine with MSE and it registers.
