    Hi Kaylene,

    This looked right, but doesn’t seem to apply to Vista.

    Running appwiz.cpl, Windows Defender doesn't even show up on the list of
    installed Program and Features, nor under Windows features to turn on or off.

    It is also not listed in the Windows Installer CleanUp utility
    <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/>. And when try to reinstall from
    <http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software>, as the KB
    article instructs, you get the message “You do not need to install this
    software
    because Windows Defender is included in Windows Vista. You can access
    Windows Defender from the Security section of the Windows Control Panel.â€

  5. @acsc: Please note that you cannot do Steps #1 or #2 in Vista. Skip to Step
    #3 or see Engel's reply.

    Hi Engel

    So are the only options with Vista is to use either SFC or do an
    upgrade/repair install just to fix minor problems/annoyances? Which in turns
    means having to recheck for updates and sometimes ending up right back where
    one starts.

    I tried this hoping I could get to Windows Defender to turn it off. Still get
    error 0x800106ba after your suggestion. There's supposed to be a way to start
    Defender manually, but I can't find it. Would you know how to do that?
    Thanks!

  20. 1. Do we know that the OP's running MSE?

    2. MSE includes Defender technology in its antispyware component so it
    disables Defender upon installation. This is not "an unsovled issue," it's
    default behavior.
