Windows Defender was installed automatically, removing the Windows
Antispyware thas was installed. But it failed to inicialize, and shows a
message box:

"Application failed to inicialize: 0x800106ba . a problem caused Windows
Defender Service to stop. To start the service restart the computer or search
help and Support on how to start a service manually. "

Restarting , the same message box is showed again. If I tray to start
manually, the same message box is showed.
Someone has a hint about ?

I have had the same problem, and when i type "net start windefend" in the
command prompt (black and white screen), I get:

----------------------------------------------------------------
The Windows Defender Service service is starting.
The Windows Defender Service service could not be started.

A system error has occurred.

System error 2 has occurred.

The system cannot find the file specified.

I followed Chris hint, opened the commmand prompt, and typed and executed
the command : "net start windefend" . and get the follow response:
The Windows Defender Service service is starting.
The Windows Defender Service service was started successfully.

In my case, the Windows XP Pro version is 5.1.2600
After then, I clicked the Windows Defender of intalled progrmas list, and
Windows Defender (beta2) version 1.1. 1347.0 , Engine version 1.1.1372.0 ,
Definion version 1.14.1436.4 , is showed normally.
I check for Updates, and executed a quick scan, and the Defender worked,
scanned 41042 objects, and returned that there are no unwanted or harmfull
software is detected, fortunately.
Later I´ll execute the full scan, but at this moment, seems, this problem
was fixed.
Thank you Chris, It was kind of your to send a response.

We had the exact same problem and found the following solution:

We use Novell NetWare for our file and print services. We had un-installed Client for Microsoft Networks in the Network Control Panel. I just recently discovered that Windows Defender requires Client for Windows Networks to be installed, but not to be enabled (it does not have to be check-marked).

Hello,

Two things to check:

A. Make sure that "Client for Microsoft Networks" is installed.

B. Verify stauts of Windows Defender Service
1. Click start and choose Run. Type services.msc in the open box and click
OK.
2. Locate at the Windows Defender service and double click it.
3. Click Start button to start the service.
4. Choose Automatic in the Startup type list.
5. Click OK to save the setting.

I successfully installed Windows Defender sometime ago now after installing
the Client for Micosoft Networks. However recently it has failed to
initialize and am getting the error message 0x800106ba again. I checked the
Client for Micosoft Networks and noticed it had somehow become unticked
(uninstalled?). I reinstalled it, and Windows Defender, but am still getting
the error message on start up. I also have Sygate Personal Firewall, and use
Yahoo Messenger 7 which are both failing to start up, even with uninstall and
reinstall. Is anyone else having any similar problems? I might have moved
some program files around recently so will look in to whether or not this has
affected anything. Any feedback appreciated.

Seems Sygate Personal Firewall is having some issues with v5.6.0 2808, and
yahoo messenger having their own issues. Haven't sussed out Defender yet.

Just overcame the same issue, and did a bit of everything suggested earlier:

Typed in "net start windefend" at the command prompt (Start key, Run, typed cmd, then Enter key, until you get the black background with white writing, much like the old DOS prompt);

The command did NOT execute. I then went to Start, Add/Remove Programs, and removed Windows Defender (tried to repair, but this proved unsuccesful also);

Went to www.microsoft.com and downloaded latest version of Windows Defender, and everything went smoothly after that.

I had noticed, however, when returning to the Defender home page, that the Beta version of Defender I had been using (along w/ Windows Live OneCare) expired on 31DEC2006.

Thanks to everyone for collectively helping me to resolve this problem.

Solution

I came across the solution by accident and thought I'd share it with the world before moving on since I had this problem forever and would never go away. PS, I had Vista 64 and had this error ever since installing McAfee shortly after buying my computer. I'd always be told that the "Application Failed to Initialize: 0x800106ba."

1) I first started Windows Defender (This probably isn't necessary but happened to be the first thing I did)

Start --> "Run" --> Type in "net start windefend" (without the quotes of course).

(If that didn't do anything, that's okay... Just move on to #2 below)

2) The following I believe is the real fix (the step above probably wasn't necessary but was what I did before doing the stuff below:


Go to your Control Panel --> Systems and Maintenance --> Administrative Tools --> Double Click on the “Services” icon --> Select Windows Defender --> Click on “Stop the service” --> Then restart it by clicking on “Start the service”.

For whatever reason, the above combination (probably the result of just #2) seemed to work.
