Windows Defender error 0x800106ba
a couple of days ago I got hit by some malware/virus. After this attack my
antivirus solution was not working anymore and also windows defender went
down. I uninstalled my prior antivirus solution, installed then Kasperski and
ran a full system scan to clean all up. since this time I cannot enable
Windows defender anymore. I allways get the error:
Application failed to initialize. 0x800106ba. A problem caused this programs
service to stop...
I tried the following:
try registering the following files using the following procedure:
Select: Start > Run > and type "regsvr32 wuapi.dll" (w/o the quotes) and
click OK > OK.
Follow the same procedure to register the following files one at a time:
but no suiccess
It seems I cannot even uninstall windows defender to do a fresh install..
Can someone help here:
Microsoft has established separate newsgroups for Windows Defender support
and comments. This is not one of them.
TIP: Access these newsgroups using your default newsreader, not your
browser. See instructions on above page.
PS: You've got MUCH more work to do!...

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
