How to troubleshoot software confiquration problems in windows defender

I tried to turn on the Defender for months. Windows Defender does not illuminate on the control panel link, or the link in the Security Center. I looked in the System Configuration, the service is checked, but not running. The next box says "Windows Defender is off and open market".

The error box says "timed out error 0x800705b4. Can it be remove and reinstall? I'm not a pro, but have tried to learn more about my computer, I've been using a computer for 3 years, never touched one before.


The Windows Defender antispyware program which is preinstalled on Vista and Windows 7 computer is off (to avoid potential conflicts) during the installation of various programs of anti-malware to include (but not necessarily limited to) AVG, McAfee, MSE and Norton.

Maybe your antimalware program has disabled Windows Defender.

What antimalware program do you use?

    at this moment I have Windows security essentials. but I want to change it to windows defender, how to make the switch?

    No, don't do that.

    Windows Defender is anti-spyware.
    Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a combination of anti-virus and anti-spyware.

    MSE will disable Windows Defender because he has his own Defender. Running 2 defenders is redundant and also create conflicts.

    Keep the MSE and you do not need Windows Defender.

    Is there another reason you want Windows Defender instead of MSE?

    I have spyware doctor™ installed and registered on my computer. Yet windows defender has repeatedly popped up and resumed my computer turning off not only spyware doctor™, but also all the other programs on the computer. I do manual restore just to remove the program. Also when he takes over the system it starts automatically from the internet and brings up all kinds of advertising. How this program can be stopped. All my firewall and security settings are set to high. Windows allows however in it because it has the certificate of microsoft.

    This is like Microsoft's Windows Defender. It seems that your computer is infected, probably by a rogue security program. The real Microsoft Windows Defender doesn't not part of Windows XP.

    Your system is infected with a rogue antivirus program. It's called "thugs" because he pretended to be a good guy but is really bad. Don't pay them!

  • Problem with Windows defender.

    I installed Windows Defender 10 days ago. I'm going to have a problem that the windows defender automatically turns off service a few times. The last time it happened when I ran a quick scan and in the middle of the analysis, in the system tray, it seems with a mark I opened it and I showed that the Windows Defender Service is disabled. Then I turned it on. But the problem is why what is happening?

    * I also using MSE .

    You must uninstall Windows Defender, it's redundant, MSE includes Windows Defender antispyware protection. You must have a program in real time of protction installed on your computer.

    1. If you are using Vista, Windows Defender is part of the operating system. It can NOT be uninstalled. He lives and dies with the system.

    2. If you have the following antivirus (AV) installed, Windows defender is supposed to be stopped by the AV:
    Microsoft Security Essentials

    3 here is another way to startup programs...
    Start button > in the search box, type msconfig > press the Enter key > uac prompt > Startup tab > you can find the program it?

    4. If you have, see if you are able to activate Windows Defender long enough before your AV it stops again...

    Start button > in the search box, typeServices > press the Enter key > scroll to find Windows Defender, click on it >...
    topic status , it must be said... Has begun
    under Startup Type, it must be said... Automatic
    If it does not say that, right click on Windows Defender > click Properties > in the new window, make the necessary changes, as above > click OK when finished.

  • Minor problems with Windows Defender in Vista Home Premium 64...

    Hi, I have a problem with the Defender, it seems that the program is updated, but when I open the 'color of program' Defender is orange instead of green.
    To search for "new definitions", he asks, I'm taking this step and then the color is orange, so there must be something wrong with the program.

    There is no error code.

    I use a HP Pavilion Elite with Vista Home Premium 64, and I use Microsoft Security Essentials such as AV and WF.

    Windows Update seems ok.

    Can someone fill me on this one please.
    best regards Carlo

    BTW; my native language is Dutch thanks for the effort...

    You do have a problem that you have to worry.

    Microsoft Security Essentials has its own integrated version of the defender and would normally disable Vista Defender.

    If you continue to have problems with the Vista Defender, turn it off:
