    Windows Defender error 0x8050800d


    When Windows defender runs, it quits with the following error:
    Windows Defender encountered an error: 0x8050800d

    What could be causing this?

    Start it and look for:
    Windows Defender Signatures and click remove.
    Then try to update.

    While someone may come along here that can help you, I thought I would
    let you know that there are newsgroups for Windows Defender specifically:
    <http://www.microsoft.com/athome/secu...newsgroups/def
    ault.mspx>

    People that post there regularly are more in tune with the Defender
    problems and may have something useful to offer that will help you with
    your problem.

    For the past 8-hours, this has been the result of attempting to go into the
    newsgroup:

    Sharon, I have been checking that defender page and for the past 2 weeks, it
    tells me that the questions forum is unavailable.
