How to Auto-update MSE without Windows Update !

hi !

How to update MSE´s virus definitions WITHOUT Windows update,
(if you have selected Windows Update to "notify of available updates"):

use task scheduler, on the right panel click "Create Basic Task".
then enter a name, select daily, 1 day, run a program,
in Program/Script enter: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials\MpCmdRun.exe"
in Add arguments enter: "-SignatureUpdate"

if you want to update more than once a day, than create another task with a different time.
if i remember correctly the definitions are released 3 times a day...

In order for MSE to update it'self ... you need to be running a validated/legal copy of Windows.
Of course, it won't install without the above

Correct me if I am wrong.. but can you not just use the Update button?

I'm not sure what is the purpose of this, because MSE seems to update itself regardless of the Windows Update setting.

Anyway, nice job figuring out how to schedule it.

You can download updates and just double click on the file to update MSE.

OK, but if hackerman couldn't figure that out on his own, perhaps he should be changing his name
