    Defender Error 0x8050800d

    Everytime Defender runs, I get the following error:
    "Windows Defender encountered an error: 0x8050800d
    Some history items could not be displayed.
    Please wait and try again...."

    I have tried to go onto the defender newsgroup, but it keeps saying its
    "temporarily" offline. It has been offline for a LONG time.

    Does anyone know how I may resolve it?

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

    Thanks Mark, Nothing stating Windows Defender is listed in this utility.
    What should I try next?
