Windows defender not working


The Windows Defender software constantly scans your computer for threats such as spyware that may slow down your computer or try to steal personal information.


If the software wasn't installed properly or is conflicting with other programs running on your machine, Windows Defender may not work correctly.


To repair the software you either need to download the latest update available for the program, or you need to completely uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender.


Restart your computer's operating system.

Double-click the "Windows Defender" icon in the system tray at the lower-right end of the screen.


Click the question mark icon at the top of the Windows Defender screen and choose "Check for Updates."


Select "Continue" if you are running Windows Vista.


Wait for the updates to finish installing and click "Scan."

Click "Stop Scan" if the problem persists.


Click the question mark icon again and select "Exit Windows Defender."

Click "Yes" to confirm you want to close the software.


Open the "Start" menu screen and select "Control Panel." Select "Uninstall a Program" in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or instead choose "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows XP.


Click the "Windows Defender" entry and select "Uninstall."

Choose "Yes" and restart the computer after the program is removed.


Navigate to the Windows Defender installation webpage (see Below).

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=435BFCE7-DA2B-4A6A-AFA4-F7F14E605A0D&displaylang=en&mg_id=10134


Click "Download" and double-click the Windows Defender installation file when it downloads to your hard drive.


Go through the onscreen installation instructions.

Open the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."


Select "Windows Defender."

Click "Scan" to start a new scan for malicious software.

Windows Defender 0x800106ba Service Error on Automatic Startup


Some times even when the Windows Defender service is set to automatic you still might see the Error below and even when you have tried this site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931849 which tells you to remove the program and then use the windows installer cleanup utility form HERE and start again you still get the same error

This is a method is bit drastic I suggest that first you update manually the definitions from HERE then download my Windows Defender FIX from my Public SKYDRIVE then restart you PC it should now fix the above error it will re-register all the DLLs that are needed to allow the error to go

What causes Windows Defender Update Error 0x80070422


If you have disabled either of the two following Windows Services then you will get the Update Error as shown below

f36ac82.jpg

This is the screen that you will see when Windows Defender tries to update the defintions file

ad747f5.jpg

You can enable both of these using the services.msc from the command prompt or use this TWEAK from my Sky Drive

YOU WILL NEED TO RESTART YOUR PC AFTER YOU IMPORT THE TWEAK TO LET THESE SERVICES START AUTOMATICALLY

If access to Windows Update has been disabled in the registry then you will need to use THIS tweak to ensure that you can prevent the 0x80070422 error

If all else fails then you can always download the latest defintion file mpas-fe.exe from the windows website HERE

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135).


When attempting to run Microsoft .Net based applications, you may get the following error on startup:
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)
The cause of this error is that the Microsoft .Net framework is not installed or is damaged in some way. Therefore applications will fail to launch.
To fix this error you can run Windows Update and find the Microsoft .Net framework update to install. Alternatively, you can download the Microsoft .Net Framework directly from Microsoft.

How to fix application error 0x0000034?


Hi, have you installed any new hardware, software, updates or drivers before this happened? If so, go to safe mode ( press F8 while win bootup ) and remove the application. If this has totay nothing to do with installed software, it may be your RAM module failing... try to replace with a different one to get rid of the problem.

Unable to check for updates with Windows Vista Home Premiun, SP1, 32 bits, error code 80244019 for Windiws Update and 0x80244019 for Windows Defender, last update instaled Jan/01/09


I've been having the same error when I try to run Windows update on a Vista Ultimate machine setup for use with our SBS 2003 server running ISA 2004.

The Solution that I found is this.

When you setup Vista for use with a domain it creates the following regkey with a subkey etc ( policy ) that sets Vista to look for a WSUS server.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="http://serversbs"
"WUStatusServer"="http://serversbs"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000004
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:00000001
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001

When I deleted this key and rebooted my PC windows update was working.


Hope this was somehow usefull

Installation failed


I think there is no need to install windows media player it was already located in your program accessories, better to check it. But you can only update media player with the latest version not to install it again.

Hope this will helpful.
