How do i fix error ox800106ba


Hi Anon,
The 0x800106ba error may occur after Windows Defender is updated due to the computer's inability to update the Windows Defender firewall. It may not have applicable permissions needed for the update, or it may not have the files necessary for updating itself.

The Fix

Set Windows Defender to Automatic - You can set the Windows Defender service to Automatic, Disabled or Manual. Setting it to automatic might solve the problem. Follow these steps:
  1. Click Start > type services in the Search box > click Services in the Programs list.
  2. If you are asked for a Password before you continue, then enter the password > click Continue.
  3. Double-click Windows Defender, and click Automatic in the start-up box > click OK.
Uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender - If the first procedure did not help resolve the problem, try un-installing and then reinstalling Windows Defender. Due to the fact that Windows Defender is a Windows component, we will use AppWiz to un-install it from the computer. Follow these steps:
  1. Press Windows Key + R > type appwiz.cpl > Press Enter
  2. Click Windows Defender > click Remove
  3. Follow the prompts to uninstall Windows Defender

Let me know how you go!

How can i fix this error code? error code :


Is this for a Realtek audio driver? Try this: Here is the solution:
  • Open Device Manager (Start> Control Panel> System> Hardware)
  • In the "View" menu , select "Devices by connection":

2640-device-man-s-.png
  • Disable and uninstall by right clicking on "Bus Driver for Microsoft UAA High Definition Audio":
  • You can now install the drivers normally and without error.
If you still have problems, uninstall and delete the audio driver file and get a new driver file, it could be corrupt, or even the wrong one. A great program for locating current driver files is Drivermax...I love that program. You can download 2 drivers a day for free with it.

McAfee Integrated Security Platform Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.


Not only Uninstalling & Reinstalling the McAfee Program would help, because usually you'd get this Error During the Installation. The Reason for this Error is because of the Windows Update (McAfee is Disigned on the Windows Platform).

Things that Needs to be checked here are:

1. Update Windows:
- Open IE (Internet Explorer).
- Click on the TOOLS or SAFETY (If the IE version is IE v.8).
- Select Windows Update.
- Ensure that All Windows Updates are Installed on the Computer.


2. Installing MSXML 3 & 4:
- Check if you already have MSXMLs installed on your Computer by going to START >> CONTROL PANEL >> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS or PROGRAMS >> PROGRAMS & FEATURES (In Case of Windows Vista/7).
- If you find MSXMLs, Uninstall them & then Restart the Computer.
- Download and Reinstall MSXML version 3 (MSXML3.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Download and install MSXML version 4 (MSXML.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Run McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) from http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe
- Reinstall the McAfee Program.


Thank You!

SAM

I cant install windows update. I get error 80240016.


Backup your data files (external hard-drive or burn some DVDs).
Then, reinstall Vista -- much quicker than trying to "trouble-shoot".

I get a hp toolbox error on my hp m2727 printer and the scanning function stopped working. uninstalled, installed, uninstalled, clean many times but won't work (also suggested by HP). what to do?


Try installing that printer on another computer to make sure the printer is still fuctional. If it does work on another computer then you know its a problem with your operating system on the original computer.

At that point figure out if you installed any windows updates on that computer cause windows updates can screw things up. If so then uninstall the windows updates and see if that fixes the problem.

If it doesn't then windows is corrupted and you would need to do a factory restore on your computer and start from scratch. In that case, save any important info from the computer.

AVG will no install error 0x800736b1 also retrirve my desktop


Hi there. My name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem

First of all, AVG has always had a problem installing when windows updates are enabled and download and install automatically. I would recommend uninstalling all updates that have been installed to your computer and disable automatic updates which I will explain to you below

To uninstall the updates.
Click start, settings and click control panel.
On the icon add and remove programs, please double click
You will now see all the programs and updates installed on your computer. The microsoft updates are located near to the bottom of the list and there may be a lot of them installed. You can only uninstall one update at a time. You may be prompted that uninstalling a windows update may cause a program not to work properly, this is normal so you can continue uninstalling them. When you have uninstalled these updates please restart your computer.

To disable the automatic updates

Right click on your icon My computer or My pc which is located on the desktop or on the start menu (if you are running windows xp) and select properties
You will then see a sub menu called 'Automatic updates' and inside this menu you will have the choice to disable the updates

If you are using windows xp and you have system restore enabled on your computer, then you will be able to take the computer back to an earlier time when it was working correctly. Please save all documents first to insure that nothing will be lost if you decide to do a 'system restore'. There is a very friendly wizard to help you restore your computer. You can get to the system restore by clicking start, programs, accesories, system tools and selecting system restore.

Regarding your problem about your desktop disappearing, to restore your icons on the desktop, right click anywhere on the desktop and select organise icons and be sure that the heading 'show desktop icons' is ticked. This will restore your desktop items

Last of all try installing AVG, if you still experience problems with this issue, then please let me know. Im happy to help

Updating...


Sounds like the automatic updater has glitched. Start by trying a system restore from the system tools in the accessories section of the start menu. Go back to a point about a month or so back. However, since this is integrated into the operating system you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc, if the restore doesn't clear up the problem.

Driver blockt work due to compatibility issues.


A user can uninstall the Windows Vista update that is causing this issue. Once the update is uninstalled you will need to wait until Microsoft has released a fix for this issue. Otherwise, a Windows Vista update may cause this problem to occur again if Microsoft has not pushed a fix yet.
To uninstall the conflicting update, do the following:
1. Click Start
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Programs and Features
4. Choose View installed updates
5. Select "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB943302)
6. Click Uninstall
7. Restart your computer and the update should be uninstalled
