Re: Microsoft Security Essentials - Unable To Install

I had to manually update also. Now up to .455. It said I hadn't been updated in two days!

Tried the update button, it appeared to be checking, but nothing happened.

What the heck is going on with this?

Had the same problem as everyone else. Manually downloaded and installed the (full) definitions files from

Windows Defender Offline (x64) Definitions

Windows Defender Offline (x86) Definitions

and everything was fine.

Not sure why there seems to be panic about it. Evidently Microsoft's update server(s) borked over the weekend. Even this site does that from time to time.

Nothing to see here.

Not panicking, just annoying to have to remember to manually update, that's all.

Not sure if Microsoft has MLK day as a holiday but I'm sure they'll kick their server(s) back into service soon.
