Windows 7: Windows Defender error code Ox80070424

Windows Defender error code Ox80070424

In attempting to fix my email display, I discovered Windows Defender is not turned on, and cannot be turned on. I have looked for MSE in my Programs list and don't see it. In addition, when I click on Windows Defender in the Control Panel, it shows its last scan December 12, 2011- 1 year ago.

I do have the Windows 7 Home Premium Install Disc. Can I just reinstall Windows 7? If so, what prep do I need to do?
If I do that, do I need to search out any malware, viruses, trojan etc?
Another option is to install MSE, but I may not be looking in the right place to see whether it is in fact installed, and has turned off Defender.

I did have the trojan horse: trojan.win32.agent.hip 2 weeks ago, but the tech help at StopSign/eAcceleration which is my virus protection said this was a false positive. It was caught by Stop Sign and quarantined.

I also run Malwarebytes and all scans are clean.

I don't think much of this Stop Sign Antivirus program.
Some questions.
1. Do you want a clean install?
2. Do you want to check your computer for infections and clean them out?
My suggestion would be a Clean install because who knows what this Stop Sign program has done to your computer.

You could try running windows defender offline first.

Ran Combofix from anti virus (StopSign). It found a couple of folders and deleted those. When I rebooted, an update for Windows defender definitions showed up. Ran the update and Defender is working!. Ran a quick scan and all okay. Running a full scan now. Thanks for your help.
