    Microsoft Antimalware Real-Time Protection .... f

    I get these two errors showing up in the Windows event log:

    1.
    Microsoft Antimalware Real-Time Protection feature has encountered an error and failed.
    Feature: Behavior Monitoring
    Error Code: 0x80004005
    Error description: Unspecified error
    Reason: The filter driver requires an up-to-date engine in order to function. You must install the latest definition updates in order to enable real-time protection.

    2.
    Microsoft Antimalware Real-Time Protection feature has encountered an error and failed.
    Feature: Network Inspection System
    Error Code: 0x8007042c
    Error description: The dependency service or group failed to start.
    Reason: The system is missing updates that are required for running Network Inspection System. Install the required updates and restart the computer.


    1. To what updates is it referring? MSE is up to date. There are no required updates listed in Windows Update.

    2. I think this is the version - 3.0.8107.0 (shows in the log Details tab). Also this shows in MSE at Antimalware version. Antimalware Client Version: 3.0.8107.0

    MSE comes up green. Should I reinstall MSE or is there some other issue at work here?

    How I'd tackle this would be to download MalwareBytes and install it & update it.
    Download MSE fresh, do not install!
    Disconnect from the Internet.
    Uninstall MSE.
    Run MalwareBytes and clean up any infections.
    Reinstall MSE!
    Shutdown the computer.
    Reconnect your Internet cable.
    Start it up.
    Run Windows Update until done.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Thanks, that seems to have cured the issue for now. I'll check again after the next MSE update.

    I think the uninstall and re-install of MSE is what did the trick. Malwarebytes didn't find anything. I run it on a regular basis, and had already run it after I discovered this problem.
