Hi @RolandJS

Windows Defender is NOT an AV just an antispyware, MSE is both

For Windows 7 users, after MS January 14th cease and desist of support -- WD is not an AV but only AS, MSE is both AV and AS; both programs become outdated :)

No… Just from MSE control panel on my PC… Just open your MSE control panel and go to update tab, then click on “Update definitions” on right side.

I tried it from the update tab. It took a LONG time. Searching and Download went quickly, but the Installation took about 5 minutes. The HD light has been on since.
