Chances are, that if you're on a slow or unstable connection, the next release of the update is out before you've actually downloaded the last - All Defender updates are released under the same KB number, with different versioning.
If you're bow running with MSE installed, please reset Defender to Manual, rather than Disabled. I believe that this is necessary, as MSE uses some of the other services that it activates and enables.
It's more loikely that your programs were being disabled by Avira's firewall (assuming you had the suite installed, rather than just the AV) than MSE. Did you look there?
