Microsoft Security Essentials Real Time Protection Turns Off (0x800106ba)

So my microsoft security essentials keeps turning itself off every few minutes, and it keeps saying my definitions are out of date, despite no updates being available. I try to scan but it say the scan can not complete, and I get the error code posted in the topic. If anybody has any idea as to what this is, I'd greatly appreciate some insight. 
If you reboot, your computer should automatically check for updates to Security Essentials and download them all by itself.  That may be simplest for you.
