error 0x800106ba


  • i have windows vista. i installed microsoft security essentials, and since then windows defender tells me that it is turned off all the time. whenever i run a scan, or there is an update from security essentials, windows defender is automatically turned off.
    i have to manually turn on defender, and since my latest update, i cannot even turn it on. i get "error code 0x800106ba".

    my question is; is this a prevalent problem with vista users when installing microsoft security essentials? and, is defender needed when using security essentials? if so, how do i fix the problem? thanx
