Every time I turn on my laptop, I get this message:

Application failed to initialize: 0x800070006. The handle is invalid.

Disable Windows Defender: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Turn-Windows-Defender-on-or-off
It's a worthless program.

Thanks, I was following the steps but when I try opening the Windows Defender, I get the same message...

Application failed to initialize: 0x800070006. The handle is invalid.

What can I do?

Scroll down to "Windows Defender" service.
Right click on it, click "Properties"
Under "Startup type" select "Disable" from drop down menu.

Hmmm....

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

Attach the file to your next reply.

Re-run Autoruns.

In section HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run UN-check Windows Defender

Scroll down to Task Scheduler section. UN-check \Microsoft\Windows Defender\MP Scheduled Scan

Restart computer.

Good news :)

Windows Defender: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Defender
But, that's more like a theory.....useless tool, as I said.

You can delete Autoruns, if you wish.
