New W7 computer - Windows Defender error reporting - not even installed
Error: New W7 computer - Windows Defender error reporting - not even installedHello,
I just did a custom install of W7, overwriting all files, reformatting the drive.
The computer is pretty much as is, hardly touched it.
Every time i start the computer (and more instances afterwards) i get the typical "[program] has crashed
windows is finding a solution" pop up, only the bar doesnt move at all, and i get the message asking if i want to send data to microsoft about the crash.
This is happening all the times, throughout use, and is EXTREMELY annoying.
I've checked the programs
list and Defender is not installed.
To clarify the install was W7 professional 64 Student Edition custom installed on XP 32.
How can i fix this? Will downloading and installing Defender then removing help? Or just make things worse?
Thanks in advance.
