McAfee and Windows Defender should work together.

I am writing this 2 hours later. The messages below were so inaccurate It is.
no wonder I am confused. It is my understanding that under the guarantee I
get help with everything except forcibly breaking this nice computer. First,
I never said about 90% of what construed to be my conversation. Neither was
my daughter's correct. I bought this Toshiba a few days ago and began
installing and registering everything with little difficulty. I removed the
Norton programs and purchased and installed McAfee Security. Everywhere in
the security stuff I was asked I registered myself and all the requested
numbers. When I began to open to use internet the message window came up
saying "Windows Defender, 0x800106ba application failed to initialize. The
problem caused this service to stop..." It said to restart the computer or
manually install the program. I have nbeen using the computer without
following this instruction because i was able to x out the window and simply
do what I wanted without it. However, Windows Defender appears to not be
working. It was my understanding that it is already part of this computer. I
was unable to understand either one of the two peopke I called on this and am
still at a loss. Refer to Case number 1-1291508848 for the last
unsatisfactory call. Thanks for any help you can provide. 916 320-7745 cell.

Windows Defender doesn't appear in the list if you have Vista because it is
part of the operating system. That KB article fails to mention which OS it
pertains to but you can't reinstall Defender that way in Vista. Try using
System Restore to return the system to a point before it started happening.
The following article describes how to do this:
I note the only other option it gives is to reinstall Windows. You can do
this by running the Setup disc from within Windows and "upgrading" it over
