Cubey posted a topic in Privacy and SecurityRecently windows defender stop working and i get this error code "0x80070424" the specified service does not exits as a service.I checked services and its not listed there ether.This computer recently had McAfee on it but the subscription expired a long time ago and was not very useful so i deleted it.Windows defender stopped working before i uninstalled McAfee.I would like to know how to restart windows defender.
What, exactly, is Windows Defender in Vista? It is such a resource hog and seems to begin randomly and take forever to finish its scan. Do I really need it? I run some good antivirus software (Avast Pro.) If not, how do I disable it?Thanks in advance!
