Windows update error code : Code 80240016 (because Windows Defender will not update)
Windows Defender (from program) error code: Code 0x800705b4 (timeout period expired)
Windows Defender Network : successfully able to start in services.msc
Windows Defender Service error code: Code 0x80070005 (access denied)
I am unable to update windows defender or upgrade to windows 10 because of it, I have no other third party malware protection installed, and am unable to start windows defender from the program, the program opens but will not start and am unable to change anything else such as settings.
I have used services.msc to try and start it from there and have had no luck, but the windows defender network seems to start and work ok. YES windows defender service is set to AUTOMATIC
I have removed all malware detected by the full paid version of malwarebytes anti malware before uninstalling it (only trainers for darksouls)
I have used regedit to remove all conflicting registry errors (there were none) also windows defender does not even show up in HKEYLOCAL_MACHINE under microsoft
I have used administrator command promt to run sfc/scannow (no change) a few errors popped up but it said it couldn't get rid of them all.
This is about all i can remember that i have tried, I'm sure there was more i can't think of right now. nothing has helped one bit.
