Hi,

Was wondering if I could get a little help. Everytime I boot up my computer I get a couple messages on my screen. The first has to do with Windows Defender. My computer tells me that the application failed to initialize 0x80010689. A problem caused windows defender to stop. The second is that each time I boot up Windows Installer starts says preparing to install then says that Microsoft office xl professional, the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM.

What do I need to do to not have these 2 things happen each time I boot up my system?

Thanks for your help.

Truder,


You are currently getting your computer fixed in the following post in the malware section,


Truder Malware Post

I highly suggest you stick with that before trying to fix other problems that might get worse if you don't clear the malware first.

Windows Defender beta2 expired at the end of December 2006. I've seen this error on two workstations at the office (both were W2k). The current version is 1593.

But please, folow Excal's advice and wait on the "all clear" before trying to fix other stuff.

It looks like your case in Malware is done.

Here's additional information on Windows Defender Beta2, if you still need it.

The link to Windows Defender's home page: http://www.microsoft...re/default.mspx

Be careful if upgrading. Microsoft states that if you have version 1.1.1592.0, you must first manually uninstall Windows Defender before you can install this newer version. To configure or remove the existing version, use Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel.

If Defender won't open to allow you to check the version, go to Add/Remove Programs, highlight Windows Defender and click Support Information. It will give you the version there.
