Problems with Windows Degender opening.


  • Every time I try to open Windows Defender I get an error message stating:

    This programs service has stopped.  You can start the service manually or restart your computer, which will start the service.  (error code 0x800106ba)

    I do have Microsoft Sercurity Essentials but also I have been recently having problems with a virus called sf searchfly.  I believe it is a toolbar with has hacking abilities and takes over.  I have tried to remove this but not sure if it is at this time or not.  It does not show up in my opening of google crome.  It no longer pops up there on the toolbar and neither does AOL that just all of sudden popped up.  For this reason I would like to use Windows Defender.  I have malaware bytes and others but I want this Windows Defender also. 

    Can you help me with this problem?

    Thank You
