I am a novice and this is my first question. I got this message about Windows Defender as the program told me it was turned off and when I tried to turn it on, it stated: error 0x800705b4 this operation is returned because the timeout period has expired.
I'm not sure what version of Vista I have. If someone can tell me how to determine that, I will get back to you.
I have done an online search of this problem and either I can't make sense out of the solutions or they don't work. I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials for my virus protection and I also have SuperAntiSpyware, Malewarebytes AntiMalware, CCCleaner which I used to try to fix the problem, and most recently installed Revo Uninstaller.
When I tried to go back to an earlier backup date which I had done with my previous computer in XP, I could not do so. (I also haven't been able to back up this computer in a few weeks even though I have plenty of space but that may be another issue.)
Please help! Thank you very much.
