    Tried setting back the service from disables to manual and also reinstalled MSE - Neither worked. Then I uninstalled MSE, updated Defender and deactivated it through its settings, but that did not work either.
    I think this thread had the solution to my problem in post #10, but the link is dead...
    Windows defender keeps bugging me...

    Oh, and nothing looks amiss in the action center (no orange or red or anything).

    I'm not sure what the screenshot used to be of, but I would imagine that it was to check and see if Windows Defender real-time protection was turned off, and Windows Defender was turned off.

    Windows Defender - Turn On or Off

    What do you have listed in your Startup tab in msconfig? There may be something from Windows Defender in it still.

    That's my assumption as well, but as that didn't work ...


    Windows-related progs would be: Script host, DDK driver, SkyDrive, Security Client, Operating system -- Oh, wait. That looks suspect. And it's run with %ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe -hide

    Let's see.

    Worked like a charm! Cheers! :)

    Oh, and I also changed the service to not restart if crashed. Not sure if it helped/will help out but, why not...

    Hello Brink,
    I'm new to this lol. I was trying to install my printer but it says I need to turn on the firewall. But when I try I get the Error code 0x8007042c. I got this computer from my sister who didn't have an antivirus on it. I downloaded Avast and ran the scan. Of course it's infected. I really could use some help

    Hello lilredneckbit, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Personally, when comes to viruses, I prefer to format and start over.

    Thank you for the reply but when it comes to computers I'm not the best haha. I know that when my sister bought this laptop it already came with windows installed. Then shortly after she bought it, it pops up saying windows is not genuine. She tried all the tech support through Microsoft and they never got it figured out. They tell her that the activation key(?) is already being used. Which yeah it is because she was the one that bought the computer lol. Does this mean I need to buy a new Windows program to fix my problem? She also told me about a program Linux that her friend swears by. Any good? I know I have many questions but I'm just trying to get this thing back in good shape since I don't have the money for a new one quite yet. I really appreciate you taking the time to try to help me

    She might try doing a factory recovery/restore to see if that may help. She should be able to activate it using the product key number on the COA sticker on the laptop.
