    I tried to deinstall it but can't as I can't open the folder of windows
    defender to deinstall it.

    Above is the MS resolution to your problem.
    And you can not uninstall defender from your computer.
    It is part of the Vista OS; you can only turn it off.

    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".

    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.....

    Thank you, Christine, for the advice! This has also worked on my laptop and I am no longer receiving the error message! :)

    I just wanted to let you know that this was the only solution to this
    problem in my pc, I did exactly as Christine suggeted and worked perfectly!!
    Thanks for the tip

    Alas! The issue was fixed.
    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.

    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.

    Thanks! Its the perfect procedure to stop that error message at start up.

    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.

    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,

    They have. They've discontinued it.
    And please quote the post you are replying to:

    The "forum" that you are posting in leaches off the Microsoft News servers
    in order to make it look far busier than it really is. Everyone who uses the
    MS News servers sees your post on it's own - we have NO IDEA to whom you are
    talking.

    This is not your fault - the fault lies with the forum owners who do not
    explain to members that their posts end up on global Usenet newsgroups.
    If you MUST continue to post in this "forum" then please at least quote the
    post you are replying to, and do NOT change the subject line.

    You would be far better off however, using a news reader and subscribing to
    these news groups direct.

    Follow these steps to resolve that problem, insert the Windows Defender service to Automatic instead of Disabled or Manual set. To do so:
    1. Click Start, Type in the Start Search box, type a service, and then in the Programs list, click Services. If you are an administrator password or confirmation will be asked for input, type the password or click Continue.
    2. Double-click the Windows Defender Service, and then in the Startup type to Automatic.
    3. Click OK.

    If the problem is not resolved after you complete above steps, uninstall Windows Defender and reinstall it again.

    Solution Steps for Windows XP

    Re: receiving error message 0x800106ba for windows defender

    I'm running Windows XP, 3rd edition

    I was having some problems with my previous anti-virus program just slowing everything down excessively. It was recommended that I just get rid of them and install Security Essentials. I did so and things seemed to be alright at first.

    But now if I turn my laptop off rather than just standby, when I turn it back on the Security Essentials is noted as OFF (not protected). When I hit the START botton to restart it, it seems to take forever to restart. And now I get this error code as noted above.

    I tried following the directions from these previous postings, but since Windows 7 and Vista seem to be different than XP, I can't find Windows Defender.

    Can someone help this older guy who is not a computer expert by any stretch of imagination :)

    Re: receiving error message 0x800106ba for windows defender

    After reading out several references I found that the issues with Windows Defender. It happens when the defender is updated. For that you have to set Windows defender on automatic instead of manual. Type services.msc from the start menu and then in that choose the appropriate option to run automatically when your windows boot up. This might fix the issue out.
