Preferred Solution: WINDOWS DEFENDER ERROR CODE 0x80244019

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello Verrego,

This error is sometimes related to a Trojan Virus. I would recommend that you run a very thorugh antivirus and spyware scan to be safe. This may also be of help with this.

Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software

Hope this helps,

MS' words of wisdom can be found here. I've been having problems using Windows Updater lately. I can't be bothered to fix it as I update manually anyway. I start IE, google Windows Update and click the link. May not work for everyone.PS: I read the article and started the Background Intelligent Transfer Service in Automatic and my updater is now running. I suggest you try doing that first rather than going through all the other MS steps. Thanks for your help!!

Dear Tech Guy,

Firstly, thank you (Flrman1) for your excellent support with my previous problem. You are a credit to the Internet.

Secondly, my new problem. Everytime I start up my girlfriend's (Chinese) laptop, it has this error message:

"Application failed to initialize: 0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows Defender to stop. To start the service, restart your computer or search Help and Support to start a service manually."

How can I get rid of it, and is Windows Defender important, given that it never initialises anyway?

Thanks in advance.

In attempting to fix my email display, I discovered Windows Defender is not turned on, and cannot be turned on. I have looked for MSE in my Programs list and don't see it. In addition, when I click on Windows Defender in the Control Panel, it shows its last scan December 12, 2011- 1 year ago.

I do have the Windows 7 Home Premium Install Disc. Can I just reinstall Windows 7? If so, what prep do I need to do?
If I do that, do I need to search out any malware, viruses, trojan etc?
Another option is to install MSE, but I may not be looking in the right place to see whether it is in fact installed, and has turned off Defender.

I did have the trojan horse: trojan.win32.agent.hip 2 weeks ago, but the tech help at StopSign/eAcceleration which is my virus protection said this was a false positive. It was caught by Stop Sign and quarantined.

I also run Malwarebytes and all scans are clean.

A:Windows Defender error code Ox80070424

Please read this.
Encyclopedia entry: Trojan:Win32/Agent - Learn more about malware - Microsoft Malware Protection Center

I don't think much of this Stop Sign Antivirus program.
Some questions.
1. Do you want a clean install?
2. Do you want to check your computer for infections and clean them out?
My suggestion would be a Clean install because who knows what this Stop Sign program has done to your computer.

hello everybody,
I dusted of my laptop that I haven't used in quite sometime due to a common over-heating issue that's associated with my model. I finally got the courage to tear into it to re-paste the processors with thermal compound and to clean out the cooling fans. Over-heating issues have been resolved. I updated everything and un-installed Malwarebytes and Spybot Search & Destroy thinking it was interfering with Win Defender, but still getting the error code. I would like to get Windows Defender working simply because it would be a run and forget anti-malware program. Besides getting the error code for Windows Defender I believe my laptop is working fine and without any other issues. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I've read nearly all the other threads concerning this. I've also picked up the Microsoft article 931849. I've followed the instructions to delete Windows Defender; however, it is not even listed among the programs installed on my pc......can't uninstall something that's not there. So, I tried to download Windows Defender software, and run it to see if it would correct the problem. The installation stopped because "Windows Defender already exists on your pc as part of VISTA."

Is there a quick fix to simply blow Windows Defender away. I'm using other spyware software anyway. If I simply close the error message window after VISTA boots, everything runs fine. Any solutions?

Hello, please do the following:Go to Piriform's website, and click the big button.Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click).

If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next.

So I was just using my computer normally when I got a popup that Windows Defender's definitions needed to be updated. As usual, I pressed to update but unfortunately it came up with an error, claiming it could not find an update. Tried to manually update the definitions; the definitions did not run. Worst case scenario, thought something went wrong with my computer.

Hi wmm,
Can you give a little input as to when this started happening?  Infections can make this happen as well.
1. Click on start, type Services.msc and click enter
2. Click Windows Defender Service
3. Right Click and Go to Properties
4. Start the service and also make it Automatic.
Additionally, you might want to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do check for malware just in case.
Hope it helps

After restarting my computer, Windows action center has announced that my spyware protection and virus protection were disabled. Windows defender no longer appeared in Control panel.
MsMpEng.exe process is running via task manager and Windows defender services are still working as I see in services.msc. But the services are grayed out that means the services cannot be edited.
I do not have any other malware or anti virus installed in my PC before the error occured.
I've tried malwarebyte anti-malware, tdsskiller, adwcleaner, hitman and also malwarebytes anti-rootkit. Tdsskiller and hitman found nothing. adwcleaner and malwarebyte found threats, after removing those and reboot windows defender still couldn't start.
I have tried malwarebyte anti-rookit also, a first scan found nothing, then I reboot and scan it second time but still found nothing.
I hope to get instructions. Thank you.

I've been dealing with what I think is an infection, and working with a moderator on this forum to get rid of it. One of the issues I'm having is Windows Defender would not turn on. He showed me how to get the registry key fixed, and I can now open Defender, but it won't update. Anytime I try, I get error code 0x80096001.
Also I'm having issues with Windows Update. I tried to install 2007 Microsoft Office SP3, MS Office Compatibility SP3, and KB2393802, and I get the error message each time and the install fails. I've tried it numerous times with the same results. I tried MicrosoftFixIt, and it showed two issues with Windows Update that it repaired, but I still can't download those updates. Also I've googled the error code, which is where I found the MSFixIt.
Thanks for any help!

You currently have an open malware topic at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic431990.html/page__p__2506051#entry2506051 .Now that you have posted a malware log topic, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply.

Hello. I am experiencing trouble with my HP Windows 7 64Bit laptop. I noticed some changes back in December but thought it was because I received a new modem/router from ATT.

Windows Security Essentials ran and found some issues and said it needed to restart to clear out the issues. However, during the restart, it tells me that it has encounter a problem and must reboot.

Hey guys thanks a lot for strolling through, I truly appreciate it and hope with everyones assistance this issue will get resolved. So here's my issue; have I've found that everytime I have allowed windows update to install anything that has had to do with security, following the updates I have always run into the BSOD resulting in restoring my computer to an earlier date. Well this time, things are a bit different.

Whenever my computer has seemed to start to choke up, and really begins to lag, from things as simple as maximizing a minimized window, and it taking about 20 seconds for it to do so, the BSOD is coming. Heres an example of one:
Ill be honest with you guys, I dont know how to interpret what the cause of it is, nor do I know where people find it,(event viewer logs?) but surprisingly I've worked on computers all my life really.
So heres the issue:
Computer completely froze up on me this time, cursor wouldn't react nothing, BSOD, then I found myself in A continuous looping failure of Windows Start up Repair, unable to actually load windows. I tried repairing the device by booting off my windows 7 disk and this is the error I keep getting:

by the way let me add that theres no restore point (of course right....) so that wasn't an option...

Now if im not mistaken that will be translated further in my logs file? Ive honestly really never known how to go about ... Read more

hi i used a tool to remove Norton - have tried everything

cant start Defender and cant install MSE

looking for a specific fix to my issue

lap top is Sony VAIO E series

A:cant start defender cant install MSE error code:0x8004FF91


Let me see if I understand the issues...

You removed what, Norton AV?

As a result, now, Windows Defender does not start?

After removing Norton AV, you also are not able to install MSE?

One at a time..on Windows Defender:

1. Have you run services.msc, opened Services Manager, and see if the Windows Defenderservice is started and set to Automatic?

2. Did you check the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) repository?
It allows management information to be shared between management applications.

Restarting the WMI repository may help:

Open a Command Prompt (Start > All Programs >Accessories > Command Prompt), right-click, and select: Run as Administrator

Copy/paste the following (with the mouse) at the prompt, and press Enter:

winmgmt /verifyrepository

If you get a message “WMI repository is not consistent”, enter the following command at the prompt:

winmgmt /salvagerepository

This action performs a consistency check on the WMI repository.

Restart the computer and try enabling Windows Defender.

If you get the following message:

winmgmt /salvagerepository failed

Ignore the message, and once again run the following at the command prompt:

winmgmt /salvagerepository

Try Windows Defender again.

I am trying to stop Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 from redirecting me to other website. For example, I went to your web address and while I was logging in, I was redirected (new tab) to another website saying that I won some type of prize. This has been happening over the past few days and after I got the virus Anti-Spyware Soft, which has been removed via this website through a previous post in "A I infected? What do I do?" It always seems to redirect when I first get on the computer, but once when I did a Google search and tried to select a website it would not send me to it and redirected me to another miscellaneous site.

The other day this message appeared when I started my computer. All I can find about it is related to running XP. I run Vista and the W D is a pre-installed component. Most forums have suggested changing the settings or un-installing W D as long as you are running a different AVP. Since the program will not open, I can not change the settings and since it is a built in component of Vista I can not find it to un-install it.

Now what?

Any help is greatly accepted.

Good day,

For quite a few weeks now I have had a problem with getting windows update and MSE to... well update . Each time I attempt to do so, they always return with the error 0x80244019. I have been checking on other fourms, and a few users seem to have the same error, but none of the suggestions seem to resolve my issues. For some strange reason, when ever I try to access a page in IE or Chrome it always (no matter what page I attempt to go to) returns with the xampp homepage - and it's not even on! Here is an example with chrome (note the address bar ):

error1.png picture by darestium - Photobucket

And with MSE:

error2.png picture by darestium - Photobucket

And with IE:

error3.png picture by darestium - Photobucket

I also tryed resetting IE by: Internet Options -> Advanced -> Reset. And checking the LAN and proxy settings etc. Which didn't work, I also tryed a command in cmd, which didn't work either (I got it from another page regarding a similar issue) I think it reset the network configurations or something o_O.

So, the only browser I can use is mozilla, and I can't update or anything so, I am really quite annoyed. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

I have about 15 laptops running Windows 7 Pro SP1 (brand new, just out of the box).  I've been able to install quite a few updates on about 3 of them (just started working on them).  However, now, I'm getting error code 80200011 when I attempt
to install additional "required" updates. 
I've tried clearing the BITS queue, deleting softwaredistribution folder and ran SFC and nothing came up as being an issue.  I've searched the net on this issue, but there doesn't appear to be much on this specific problem.  These systems
are behind a proxy server.  I have other (XP, Windows 2003) systems that are able to update, but is there an issue between WIn 7 and some proxy servers?  If so, why would I be able to install some updates?
Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks all.

A:Windows 7 Pro - Windows Updates Error Code: Code 80200011

Chek that your proxy is configured correctly, and if you can follow these steps to resolve this issue : stop the Windows Update service and make sure that the "Backround Intelligent Transfer Service" and "Cryptographic service" are started and then go to
C:\Windows and rename the software distribution folder to UpdateOLD , and finally restart the Windows Update Service

First of all, I thank you for your attention.

I cannot perform any "Windows update" issue since the 23/08/2016.

Each time I reach the "Windows Update" screen, I get the following error message :

In french : "Redémarrer l'ordinateur pour installer d'importantes mises à jour"

In english: "Restart the computer to install importante updates"

Then, after rebooting, nothing change.

After further investigations, I get the following error message:

In French : "windows update ne peut pas actuellement rechercher des mises à jour car vous devez tout d'abord redémarrer votre ordinateur afin de terminer l'installation précédente."

In English : "windows update cannot research update because you must first restart your computer in order to finish the previous installation".

Then, I've recreated a new catalog by executing these commands:

net stop wuauserv

ren %windir%\SoftwareDistribution SoftDist.old

net start wuauserv

Now all services are running but I still cannot perform updates.
