This is the message I get when i try to start windows defender as of last night
"An error has occurred in the program during initialization. If this problem continues, please contact your system administrator.
Error code: 0x80073afc"
I've used ccleaner, spybot, and microsoft safety scaner. still getting the message. What happens is when I start ArcheAge (mmo game) itll just take forever and go so slow, and my machine with turn to shit. So i looked in the task manager and "Antimalware Service Executable" is taking up 100% of the disk space. This only happens when I start Arche Age. I have uninstalled the game and anything else that looks fishy and all the scans I do come back clean. But i still get this error when trying to start windows defender :(
I also dont have a restore point I can go back to... and really hope I don't have to factory reset my machine.
