My Windows Defender is not running and when I try to reinstall it I get an error that syas I do not have rights

"The Installer has insufficient priviledges to modify this file: D:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MsMpEng.exe."

Any ideas on how I can fix it?

I tried to run Avenger and got an error that says "Invalid Script. A valid script must begin with a command directive."

I pasted the script mOLe gave to another user - - - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/252390/malware-aftermath/

This fix was suggested by the guy who built my computer.

Have you uninstalled Windows Defender via Add/Remove Programs...before attempting to install the current version?
