I did contact mcafee, all they had me do was disable windows defender. when i bought the vista two years ago, i had this problem and they had me do something and they both worked at the same time. I'm so sorry I didn't write it down. this time they
had me disable windows defender. i told them that i didn't want to disable it, i wanted they both to work. after the disable he said restart and it will work fine. i replied of course it will, its disabled. IDIOT!
Hahaha Thanks trudog.
I went even further, I contacted my computer manufacturer Dell and the poor Dell Tech support guy took so long trying to figure this out, somehow he got Windows defender to work . I wish had known all this McAfee issue much earlier because now my system is
Pathway to Success - follow these prompts for Vista!!!!!
go to Control panel-then Administration Tools - Computer Managerment - Service Application - Services - find windows defender in Services you will notice it will be blank or disabled - now you have to high light windows defender, double click and then select
automatic, click on the word Start - apply changes and re boot your computer - and we know this works because it took us 4 HOURS to complete and ours works fantastic - good luck !!!!
came up with the same solution then found your thread, could have saved myself a few hours of pain on three differant PCs not very impressed with Mcafee if it causes problems at the very start, anyway well done confirm all working okay
Thanks Spotted 1 - I also have had the same misfortune - so this has really been a great help to me - you should be working for McAfee - thanks again I will look forward to chatting with you more often -
So I tried to do what you said, but after I went into the control panel........I couldn't find the Administration Tools!!!!!
I swear I am not blind, I started opening up all sorts of things and still didn't find it!
Plus half an hour ago the computer wouldn't let me log in because it said that something was unplugged! Oh the agony! Needless to say I restarted it. As soon as it restarted it shut it self down. Uggggg!
Once it had restarted itself, it once again came up with the error Ox800106ba.
That is when I went looking for help and found all of you.
Oh !!!! you poor thing !!! well, here is what you should try -
Now - go to Windows Explorer (you will find this in Start down in the left hand corner of your screen - then accessories ) then when it opens up under the word Control Panel (ON LEFT) you will find the word "Administrative Tools" then click on that and the
word Computer Management then just follow the prompts in first post but I have just put this in again for you -* Service Application - Services - find windows defender in Services you will notice it will be blank or disabled - now you have to high light
windows defender, double click and then select automatic, click on the word Start - apply changes and re boot your computer - *
Let me know if this works for you - good luck - where are you ???? I am in Australia !!!
If you're seeing the options like "System and Maintenance", "Users accounts and Family Safety", and so on.. you need to click on "Classic View" on the left on the screen (Under "Control Panel Home"). I hope that helps you if you haven't tried that already!
