Windows Malicious software removal tool is preventing me from installing a known good program, is there a workaround? I can't even figure out how to remove Windows malicious software removal tool.

That is why I asked him what os he was running, carpo. It is probably something else like that UAC or something ...

I have UAC turned off. Maybe Windows Defender then. When I try to open Windows Defender I get "Application failed to initialize: 0x800106ba." So there is something wrong with Windows Defender.

Go into the services and disable it. Then reboot. When you do that try to install the program again.

With my systems; the first thing I do is disable windows defender and UAC. Neither one of them aren't needed and they both cause more probs than they are worth. Of course, windows defender used to be good, when it was giant.

sfc /scannow should fix Windows Defender.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
