Hi , Vince hope the following steps will guide you in fixing of this issue.:..:

  • It may be the caused due to problems with the windows settings and with the firewall and hence check the settings whether any problem with the settings if so resolve the problem.
  • The other reason that may be occurred due to affect of Virus malware program its better once to scan your system with an updated registered antivirus so that the virus may be healed/quarantined.
  • If there are no any important files its better to just format the system and make it ready with an registered updated antivirus software as they can find virus and remove/heal the infected files.
  • Hence definitely the problem will be resolved and system turns normally in smooth running without error as the flow of execution will not be stopped.

Hi there , 

It seems you are having trouble with your windows defender . It stops working right . 

The only solution is re-installing cause there must be some bugs in your current windows defender i guess .

1.Go to start 

2. Click on control panel 

3.Go to programs and features (in windows XP ) or add or remove programs in Windows 7 respectively.

4.find windows defender and click uninstall , it may not be found in the current tab , try it in windows files.

5.Now download it from microsoft website and install it or just insert your windows 7 DVD and then open the setup and you can see installing options for other programs and services.

6. Install it and problem solved.
