Windows Defender Not Working

#1
Upon startup for the past week I have been recieving the following error "0x800106ba." Windows Defender will not start up. If I try to start it up manually I get the same error. I went to this page Error message when you run Windows Defender: "Error Code 0x800106ba" as directed by Microsoft. I tried to uninstall it, but it's not in the list for me to uninstall. I decided to bypass that and just reinstall the program, but it won't let me do that saying it's already part of Windows Vista. It is on my computer, it's just not working.
What do I do?
