Original title : windows error: 0x800106b5 won't let me start windows defender, help and support, connect to the internet, etcetc
Okay, I'm on Windows Vista & I keep receiving the same windows error: 0x800106b5. I need help with this issue as I can't do anything!
I've searched on the internet, but nothing.
Everytime I try to start up Windows Defender it says "Windows Defender is turned off. Windows Defender won't provide protection against harmful or potentially unwanted software and it won't send you alerts because it is off. To help protect your computer against harmful or potentially unwanted software,Turn on and open Windows Defender."
So I click the link...takes forever to load and it says "Your computer is running normally." Well, it's not because when I try to connect to the internet when I scroll down to network it says "Connection Status: Unknown. The dependency service or group failed to start" When I right click and press "Connect to a network" it says "Windows cannot find any networks" and behind the Network, Windows Defender stops and says "Service has stopped. A problem cause this program's service to stop. To start the service, restart your computer or search Help and Support" It won't let go on Help and Support "Help and Support was not able to start. For more information contact your system administrator or visit http://windowshelp.microsoft.com."
I've searched on the internet and found this websitehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/555962 but when I type in the commands it comes back with "WMI repository is consistent"
I don't know what to do! I've tried almost everything and running out of ideas. :(
