Good'ay ~

If I may relate my experience, it may help others....

During a clean (new install){my fault, me bad :thumbsup: } of W2000 into my IBM 390e - after downloading SP4 - the attempt to download Windows Defender Beta 2 failed with the message to: "verify that you have sufficent privledges to start system services".

Clicking "Retry" a couple of times, the download proceeded and was accepted.

I knew of the GUI+ problem and had already installed the needed files.

Upon reboot, the Error Code 0x800106ba - "problem caused windows defender to stop" came up. Using Administrative Tools to manually start service came up with this error: 2147942402 - "system cannot find file requested".

I came to find, upon checking MS update site to check update history; Backround Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1 had failed to load successfully in past. The latest version of Windows Installer had installed tho.

I "redownloaded" the above files, but Defender still would not boot/start.

Going back to the MS site, I located and downloaded W2000 Service Pack 4 Rollup 1.

Upon reboot, Windows Defender was recognized, opened, allowed updates and conducted first full scan with no problems. :flowers:

Somehow, the Rollup is not listed in AutoUpdate but is needed.

Thanks to everyone for all of the help in the past and I pray that this may help someone now - is the least I could do.
