Windows Defender wont load-0x8007024. AVG problem?

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.

Windows defender is more an anti malware program than a anti virus program

MSE is microsoft's anti virus program.

I presume you removed AVG and still have parts left.Best thing to do would be to reinstall it then get revo to remove it completely using setting 4.

For Windows defender problems go into Services and scroll down to windows defender and make sure it is set to automatic and is running.If not set it to start.

I would give MalwareBytes a run as the problem can be caused by a Virus/Trojan.
