Windows 7: Windows Defender wont start!

If you have Microsoft Security Essentials installed Defender is turned off automatically.
You don't need both so Defender is turned off.

The security essentials is much better and is a major upgrade in my opinion.

Install the MSE and you don't have to worry with the Defender.

I had the same question when I put the MSE on and Defender was deactivated.

MSE has picked up a few things on web pages that the AV missed or maybe it just found it first.
So it does work at least.

It is not only MSE that turns the Defender off - any respectable AV program will do that.

ANy other suggestions? Ive tried manually updating WD and it took the update, but WD (windows defender) still will not run? Everything else listed on the vista help link that was posted earlier on, didnt help either.

Every time I click the WD icon in control panel, it opens up the system32 folder?

I just ran SFC.exe and it didnt go well... oh noez!

Here is some of what the CBS log said...

Cannot repair member file [l:20{10}]"wersvc.dll"
Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"MpClient.dll"

It also has some references to a virus I had prior to this, malware doctor!!! That was a PITA to get ride of. But it looks like it hosed windows?

Looks like it might be reinstall time? Right?

Usually I will just format and do a clean install. But darnit! I just did a clean install like 2 months ago and it takes forever to load all my games, patches and programs.

I normally would never do this, but does windows 7 offer the ability to do a in place reinstall? So I can keep my programs and games? That way I dont have to reinstall EVERYTHING?

Thanks all!
