Windows 7 Ultimate X64

All images were snaped at between 9:08am CSTan 9:14am CST , the last image of windows update history the def version was what it did on auto before a full scan at 3:00am CST this morning.
the latest was by the update button in MSE .
Ive already re installed it twice after removing via the control panel, i rebooted an checked the registry for any old entries which were none rebooted an installed the x64 version ran a quick scan then a full status was green.
Alowed it to auto update before each scan an manually between the schedueld to get to the latest version

Windows 7

same issue here too.
mse is amber, saying the computer is potentially unprotected
it has the definitions, but says they were created on the 23rd and out of date

oops, lol
synchronising the date/time fixed it for me

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

I've not had any issues with MSE, apart from it using the Windows Update scheduled time to get it's updates. My PC is never on at 3am (except on Friday nights lol) so I found that it wasn't being updated as it should be. Simply changed my Windows Updates time and that sorted that. No problems with the actual downloads though.

hey i guess ur problem is solved

Buddy please check ur date it is 30-11-2009 in screenshots where as ur definitions are of earlier date so MSE is comparing the date of definitions to ur systems date .THAT is why it is showing potentially unprotected.Change the date n all would be fine.........

Microsoft Security Essentials v1 Vs. v2
So I notice MSE v2 is released. I have v1.0.2498.0 installed, and when I press UPDATE only the definitions are renewed. I don't know whether to uninstal old one and instal v2.0.657. Thing is I've never had any problem with the old one, and if it ain't broke.... Anybody got any thoughts...
