|Windows defender won't start. When I try to start it I get error code '0x80070424': does not exist as an installed servide. The Windows Firewall also shows error code '0x80070424', but that message says 'Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings'. |
The only protection I can see is 'Avira Antivirus', Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Adware Filter. This is not my computer, but when it was entrusted to me it had several viruses and would no longer connect to the internet thru windows. It does however connect thru HP Quck Web, which runs outside of windows so I know it's not a hardware issue. It has to be a setting in Windows. Since the computer was purchased with Windows 7 installed I can't reinstall windows on it to fix the issue.
