    Couldn't dowload MSE updates today


    I usually download from here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/defenderupdates

    But it was odd that the page showed the wrong date:

    I also tried to download from here:
    How to manually download the latest definition updates for Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Support

    but that gave a message "Page Not Found".

    - - - Updated - - -

    Loos like the problem has been fixed.

    Perhaps MSE can't be used in 2024


    I've had problems myself as MSE was trying to download updates. I wonder if MSE can still be updated in 2024. I remember having read that MSE support would in December 2023 but I would like a confirmation before I uninstall it and install AVG or anotherAV.

    I've had no problem with it updating in my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit desktops.

    I downloaded yesterday from that site. In fact, I did it on Linux, saved it to a thumb drive and ran that on Windows 7. That way I don't even have to be connected to the internet, and still can update MSE for the rare times I might need to be.

    Yes it does, but you can also manually update it.
