Application failed to initialise 080070006

Good Afternoon, My OS is Vista and recently when I have tried to run Windows Defender I am getting the following error - Application failed to initialise:0*80070006. The handle is invalid. I understand that this can be rectified by changing something in the registry which is a lot easier than reinstalling Vista. Anyone any ideas on how I can fix this and give me a step by step guide on how to do it, thanks
