Windows Defender error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im running windows xp and my system wouldnt boot up but instead gave me a quick error message then shut down.  when I came back up i tried to run windows defender in safe mode but i received an error that said it cant check for definition updates error code 0x8007043c.  One suggestion was to use Microsoft's Mr Fix-it which I did but that still didnt correct the problem.  I dont know how to download this update and would like somebody's help with this.

  • ImAProblemChild hello if you can get back into safemode try to remove defender in the add and remove program  file. then try to startup again. goto microsoft update install any updates. use fixit to find any problems. install microsoft essentials. also use the one time scanner to find any virius. it takes upto two to three hours to scan so dont turn it off.
