Windows 7: Win. Def. Update failure

21 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
Win. Def. Update failure

Windows Defender version 6.1.7600.16385. Last def. update failed and at the bottom of win. def. reads latest definition is, created on 19/10/2012.
Checked for updates in Win. Def. and it said 'no new definitions or updates available'.

I have been searching & can't seem to find this definition to download & install. The Malware Protection Ctr. shows a different set of numbers ( for windows 7, 64 bit.

Could someone please direct me to this definition so I can download & install it?
Thanks - much appreciated.

PS - also did a FIX-IT and it fixed afew things but can't see that it solved my problem.

Just a minute ago, I got a definition update version which was successful - after I did a system restore.

Install the latest Windows Defender definition updates - Get the latest definitions - Microsoft Malware Protection Center

Make sure you select the correct download for either a 32-bit system or a 64-bit system. If the update doesn't install on your computer, please post back. (Note: it's not necessary to install an earlier update as the most current update will include all previous updates.)
