Windows Defender wont load-0x8007024. AVG problem?

  buel 20:46 17 Oct 12

Hi, I have uninstalled my friend's antivirus so i can get Defender to be the main antivirus. However, i get the message that it wont load with the code of 0x8007024. Just out of interest, AVG doesn't load on Revo uninstaller but when i type it into the Windows search bar, lots of AVG items appear, such as AVG console defragmentation, AVG disc cleaner, AVG tunep 2011 etc etc.

Could this be the problem? Thank you.

This whilst from AVG as as far as I know as seperate progam from the AV
