MSE updates?

Just wondering if anybody else hasn't gotten an update for MSE in two days.

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

I even uninstalled and re-installed just to make sure.

I just checked mine and it's got the same as yours but with todays date.

That's from me re-installing earlier though. same definitions as yours.

Good question. It used to update at least once a day.

Gathering info atm.. if i'm reading this right it's an update flaw.. to where i guess you downloaded the update but the PC went into sleep mode so it didn't install messing it up.. resulting in a reboot to fix but after a few tries later it will break again? unless this is a old flaw.

No I don't use sleep or hibernate, it just seems there isn't a new definition or it's not finding one.
I just did the uninstall and re-install in case there was something wrong.

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.
