I'm using a laptop with Windows 7 Professional. Microsoft Antimalware Service is not started and has the Description:
<Failed to Read Description. Error Code: 5>
If I try to start the service manually, I get this message:
Windows could not start the Microsoft Antimalware Service service on Local Computer
Error 5: Access is denied
I have run Symantec Endpoint Protection, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, SuperAntiSpyware, and Microsoft Safety Scanner to look for virus and spyware.
I don't think this is really a permission issue but most likely some kind of corruption or virus since I logged in the laptop as one of the members in the Local Administrators group.
Any help is appreciated.
