only way i or it seems anyone has been able to update is by downloading def and nis files at manual update portal.
BTW this isn't effecting windows 8 defender.
i have a desktop and 4 lappys on our home network and this is a pain in butt. windows 7 pro 64 bit
ms manual updates here pick 64 or 32 bit

also the NIS file they have posted will put event log error in event log as its one release back. this according to reading windows update log which is one place MSE logs all updates. spent a day with this and it gets a poor rating from AV comparatives yet i read other sources like fred langa etc where it is touted as good.
on another note also updated java to 7.11 and then turned it off in IE9 as reliving these drive by viri is crazy and we have CERT telling us turn off java.
