    Defender not running

    I have vista ultimate, also runnning onecare. everytime I start up I get the
    same error kdb.exe is not working. + if I try to start defender I get
    application failed to initialize, error 0x80070002, i think htey are related
    but not sure.

    if you are running oncecare you need to uncheck the Resident Shield in
    options
    they do not play nice together.

    Re: Defender not running

    once care should be turning WD off that is why when you try to turn it on it
    fails.

    btw it seems that file error msg has nothing to do with Wd
    take a look at this
