when i try to turn on windows defender i get a message that says windows defender is turned off with a link that says "turn on and open windows defender." when i click on this link it says "windows defender encountered an error: 0x80070424. the specified service does not exist as an installed service." when i downloaded and tried to install the windows defender software it says "you do not need to install this software because windows defender is included in windows vista. you can access windows defender from the security section of the windows control panel." but of course i can't do this because of the error code. any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks
