I'm running a Windows 8 computer with Windows Defender as anti-virus. Today, I received some strange errors:
- I could not open downloaded PowerPoint presentations, because ''the presentation could not be opened. Probably, an anti-virus program hinders the presentation from being opened.'' (translated error from Dutch)
- I received a message that the Windows Defender service was turned off. I could re-enable it, but later I got the same message again.
- I am no longer able to run a scan with Windows Defender. When the scan is almost finished I receive the error: ''the pc could not be scanned. The service of this program has been stopped. Error code: 0x800106ba'' (error translated from Dutch)
I have never used any anti-virus other than Windows Defender on my computer. I did a clean install, so there was no trial of an AV running.
I've scanned my pc with Malwarebytes Free and HitmanPro. No threats were found.
Do you think I am infected by something?
