When I try to turn on Windows Defender (I am using Vista Ultimate) I get the
above error number and a message that states: "...The specificed service does
not exist as an installed service".

Any idea how to correct this problem?

Hello Jack,

0x80070424

ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST BITS service is deleted.

80070424 usually means that the BITS service (required by Windows Update) is
not running.


Have a look at this articles. It may be relevant to your problem.

The above explanation was for a previous Version of BITS but, there has been
an update for BITS since Vista came out.
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939159>

Is BITS disabled ? It can be set to Manual and the system will update
successfully but, will not update if BITS is Disabled.
Suggest you run the BITS Repair Tool to see if that helps resolve the issue
after installing the update for it:

I have the same problem as Jack. I have tried running the BITS repair tool
and it says that it does not need repairing yet I get the same error code
with Windows Defender. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Tom

Hi Tom,

Look here:
http://www.castlecops.com/p466562-Ho...ed.html#466562

I repaired 2 computers with Vista with the reg file in the zip file that
you can download if you scroll to the end of that page.

Like to here how things worked for you.
