    Some help please.... When I start up my computer I am receiving error
    0x800106ba saying there is problems itializing windows defender. When I go to
    windows defender on my screen the same message appears. How can I sort out
    this problem?
    I tried to deinstall it but can't as I can't open the folder of windows
    defender to deinstall it.
    I have vista on my laptop.

  3. Karenrd,

    On the Window Defender message boards, there have been a couple discussions
    regarding this error. You may want to try some of the solutions mentioned
    there. I found it by going to Windows Defender and looking for the newgroup
    link. From there, the discussion is under General with a message named "Error
    message 800106ba".

    I hope that helps,

    Mark

  4. Here's how I fixed it:

    Click Start
    In Search - services
    Click on Services in the list
    You will now have a list of services on the pc
    Scroll to Windows Defender and it will say Manual
    Change it to Automatic and Start it then
    Reboot and the message is gone from both of my computers.....

    Alas! The issue was fixed. Thanks Christine.
    I spent over 2 hours browsing through the MICROSOFT database to get some
    solution on this issue I've noticed on WINDOWS DEFENDER over the last couple
    of days, but of no help. Thanks for your wonderful tip. How did you manage to
    think of this good solution.

    Thanks again. Keep 'em coming!

    Anand.

    I tried the regcure, but you have to pay for it and I believe that this
    is a Windows Vista Problem that should be fix by Microsoft. However, try
    the following steps and do it yourself without paying for it.
    1 Go to control Panel and click on Administrative tools.
    2 Click on services and a new windows will appear.
    3 Look up for windows defender and right click on it, click on
    properties and select automatic, it should be on manual, change it to
    automatic and click apply then o.k. and will take you back to the
    services windows.
    4 Windows Defender should be highlighted and on the left hand side of
    the services windows, should be 2 links, click restart.
    5 Close all windows and open Windows Defender, it should work without a
    problem and your popup window at start up will not be display any
    longer. Hope this helps you.

  18. Hi,

    Error message 0x800106ba for windows defender at startup in Vista
    occurs when Windows defender is updated. Please do not uninstall it (or)
    go to Microsoft site to solve this problem and waste your time. Instead
    try the following procedure. I tried and its working.

    1 Go to control Panel and click on Administrative tools.
    2 Click on services and a new windows will appear.
    3 Look up for windows defender and right click on it, click on
    properties and select automatic, it should be on manual, change it to
    automatic and click apply then OK. and it will take you back to the
    services windows.
    4 Windows Defender should be highlighted and on the left hand side of
    the services windows, should be 2 links (start or restart), click any
    of them.
    5 Close all windows and open Windows Defender, it should work without
    a
    problem and your popup window at start up will not be display any
    longer.

    Hope this helps you.

  20. Hi Guys,

    Please do not uninstall Windows defender as instructed by Microsoft
    help site, so that we don't face a further problem with windows defender
    installation. Just know how to hide that error message as we got
    solution in our forum. As one of our member has commented, Microsoft
    must resolve these kind of problems. People who already faced problem
    with this error message, please leave a comment in Microsoft suggestion
    box, may be that will give their attention.

    Thanks,
