I get two messages each time I boot my PC (has been happening for months). Can someone help me correct/get rid of them? Hopefully this is the right forum.

SmartBridge Alert: MotiveSB.exe Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL (gives no option to correct, just 'OK' button.)

Windows Defender
Application failed to initialize 0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows Defender Service to stop. To start the service restart your computer or restart manually.
(I've tried both and I still get the message)

Thanks for any help.

"...is a process by AT&T which allows a user to submit files to the Internet for support. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference".

"This is a valid program but it is not required to run on startup".

Try disabling it from running at startup by following the instruction in this link: here

As for the Windows Defender, are you running the latest version? If updating to the latest version does not work, try uninstalling and re-installing it.
