OE6 Failed to open

This is a recurring problem for me. Back in Dec, OE6 "freezes" when I try to open it. After lots of help from PCA forum and many trial and error fixes it worked again, although I did not discover what was wrong.
Now the same problem. Co-incidentially ? I get the Windows Defender error message 0x800106ba every time I start my PC.
Also, on the day I began to experience problems in Dec. I had just renewed my Zone Alarm Internet Suite package.
Any advice ?

Try updating to OE7

Sorry, misread OE for IE! It may be a a conflict with ZoneAlarm. Have you checked that ZoneAlarm has been set to accept OE6?

Checked ZA and it is set to allow OE6.

Sorted ! I have uninstalled the "broken" Windows Defender and OE6 is working again.
Thanks all.
