Windows Defender Service

I am running Windows XP and when I go into Start > Control Panel > Software Explorers, then the below error message starts to appear:

Application failed to initialize:
0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows Defender Service to stop. To start the service, restart your computer or search Help and Support on how to start a service manually.

How to solve this issue?

I think that you are still using the beta version of Windows Defender. So you will need to download the final released version from Microsoft and install it. That will solve the issue for you.

Re: Windows Defender Service

Can you try to do a file search for windowsdefender.msi. It might be present under one of the C:\Windows\Installer\{GUID} folders.
