Re: Windows Defender

I did that and it stated "The delayed auto-start flag could not be set.
Error 87: The parameter is incorrect."

This message kept coming up after I turned my computer on. What does this mean and what do I need to do to fix this??

"Application failed to initialize 0x80016ba. A problem caused this program's service to stop. To start the service, restart your computer or search Help and Support for how to start a service manually."


You can check to see how Defender's service is configured:

Right-click Computer > Manage > click on Services on the left pane.
Find Windows Defender on the right and double-click it.
The start up type should be Automatic (delayed start).
