    windows defender application failed to initialize 0x800106ba

    Hello,

    I got this error message after I turn off Windows defender via GPO in AD on
    a Vista PC:
    windows defender application failed to initialize 0x800106ba?

    I am looking for solution for the error.

    Scenario:
    AD 2003
    Vista enterprise installation
    Office 2007 installed
    McAfee installed
    McAfee firewall is installed
    Windows defender can be turned off

    Disabling the Windows defender GPO results in the error after rebooting the
    system:
    windows defender application failed to initialize 0x800106ba?

    Any idea would help.

    Thanks

    McAfee is problem. They are known for this with windows Defender.

    Ok, I am sorry I am not a computer wiz but, you said McAfee is the cause. How
    do you fix it?? Can't repair it Microsoft won't let me.

    i got this error message 0x800106ba after i turned on my laptop, which says
    service can not run.

    frankly, i have exprecienced this problem when i installed McAfee antivirus.
    If McAfee is the problem as you suggesting, well why microsoft is
    recommending it to use?

    Microsoft makes no specific recommendation about McAfee antivirus.
    McAfee is the one making the recommendation.

    hi get the same message after installing mcfee - u r right microsoft do
    recommend the virus software - when you go to windows security centre and
    click on 'find virus software' it shows mcafee as one of the providers...

    Copy paste each of the following, one after the other in Vista's start menu search bar and hit Enter.


    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 softpub.dll

    regsvr32 initpki.dll
