That you have some virus which it have corrupt your all the security program like: Microsoft Security Essential  / Microsoft Windows defender and the virus has corrupt some registry entries as well, that means have you scan your computer for any virus and then reinstall the any security program for live protection then you have to change some registry settings.


1. Uninstall windows update which are recently installed into your computer, since the problem started.

2. Open the task scheduler and remove all the tasks

3. Uninstall AVG Antivirus, because may be have some problem in AVG dll files
