I am finding so many bogus windows defender errors, most of which disappear once windows defender is restarted, or the PC is restarted. Most seem to happen only after the initial install of windows defender.
But this particular one (0x8007E22E) happened to a laptop that had been running windows defender for a few weeks… and the owner called me because windows defender wasn’t updating anymore.
The main problem was the the customer didn’t wait for windows defender to complete its updates. (Customer was on dialup internet, and defender gives virtually no feedback that it is currently updating itself (I found the only way to tell is to click on the arrow near the help circle, and if the “check for updates” menu option is greyed-out, then it is in the process of updating… very annoying).
Its odd, since windows defender will give visual feedback on some other PCs… its almost like there are a few “undocumented” versions of windows defender out there…
