Windows Defender in Windows 7 OS
Error Code 0x800704ec
Won't allow me to open it due to a group policy is apply by the administrator which I check don't exist
I try every kind of Antivirus programs and spyware, malware security removal program and I also try to fix the group policy which it don't exist.

i was having the same error code and it is really a simple fix! go into regedit as the admin and go to
delete the key that says to disable windows defender (or something along that line). all i did was delete the key that was telling my computer to disable windows defender and then restarted my computer. i went into the control panel and started windows defender which then need to be updated and a full scan done. it is working perfect now!
