Whenever I run my computer in normal mode, it keeps returning to the following screen 

Where as running it in ‘safe mode with networking’ does not allow updating Windows Essentials or defender.  It shows the Vista error codes 0x80070b4 0x8007043c.  Can anyone help me with this problem?

There can be two cases related to this issue.

  • In the first case, if you are using some antivirus program which comes along with an antimalware program, it would automatically disable Windows Defender.
  • If no such antivirus is presentin your device, then you have to start the ‘Windows Defender’ manually. To do so, press Windows key+R. Then type ‘services.msc’ in the text box and click ‘OK.’ Open ‘Windows Defender’ in the popup that appears on the screen.

Now, open the “General” tab and click “Start” under “Service Status” to initiate the service. Also, click on the drop-down menu”Startup Type” and select “Manual.” Finally, click on “Apply” and then click “OK.”

I hope this must have solved your problem.

You boot only in Safe mode when you need to do some troubleshooting. In this mode, all services are disabled or not running. Windows Essentials and Windows Defender are programs that run as service on the computer and since services are disabled in Safe mode, none of these programs are running. Their service needs to be operational before you can update them.

That’s why you can only update Windows Defender or Windows Essentials when you’re in Normal mode. If your computer keeps on going back to the “Advanced Options Menu” screen every time you boot your computer, try selecting “Start Windows Normally”. This boots the computer in Normal mode. After booting, restart your computer again and see if it will go back to the “Advanced Options Menu” screen.

In case it did go back to that screen, try selecting “Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)” and see if there is a change. If the problem continues and it still keeps going back to that screen, try running the Windows File Checker utility. Boot the computer in Normal mode by selecting “Start Windows Normally” in the “Advanced Options Menu” screen.

After booting Windows, click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, and then “Command Prompt”. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. If you are prompted to insert the setup disc, insert your Windows setup CD or DVD on your optical drive and continue. Follow the instructions afterwards. See if this helps.
