Thanks David, I didn't look at the link provided earlier, just assumed that the definitions that came in were the latest. I spose one shouldn't assume these things or any bloody thing for that matter. Cheers

Yea, even mine that i updated earlier are outdated, and won't update automatically.
With IE you can run the update directly from the browser...
I just did that on someone else's PC and no problems.

It's a problem with Microsoft Security Essentials.
Until Microsoft fixes this you can manually install the new definitions.
You can read more about this at:

Same probs here, update button still works, but no go on the updates. Tried running Windows Update to see if the defs would show up there, they didn't. For now I guess we'll have to manually update the defs until they fix this problem.

If anyone learns that MS has fixed this issue please post that info.
I'll post if I find the issue has been fixed.

My concern is for people where I have recommended and installed MSE.
How far out of date is it OK, before it is a real concern?

Should I contact these folks and manually update their systems?

There are some people I MUST keep their systems updated and secured.
I don't want to upset them and cause needless problems.

If I have to throw MUD on my face now to keep their system secure, oh well...


Thanks,
David
