I've tried updating several times, it searches and comes back to this screen.

I even uninstalled and re-installed just to make sure.
Looks the same for me, asides from the time zone difference.

Thanks!

Just out of interest do you guys use MSE as a stand-alone as i do or do you use another such as AVG??

AVG should not be used with MSE as they are both Real Time scanners. Remember the Highlander Rule: There Can be Only One.

However, I use Malwarebytes once a month just to be sure. That's on demand so it doesn't interfere with MSE.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
