That wasn't my experience back when I tried MSE. The fact it wasn't updating unless I did it manually was one of the reasons I dumped it (along with the fact it was getting poor performance ratings).

Ya, I did not like seeing 5583 pop up again yesterday, what`s up with that ?

Enough Microsoft, I`m sick of it.

Long Live Windows 7

I wish they would come out with an update that read "Stops all future upgrades to other operating systems"

Me either but it worked after creating the task :/
Very weird :)
Panda works and that's all I care about now.

Even though I don't plan on using MSE ever again (too many better ones out there), I still copied and pasted the tutorial into a Word doc for future reference on how to use the Task Scheduler. Thanks for the "edjumacashun"!

There was a problem a few years ago where MSE definition updates stopped working.
As i remember it, it was a problem with a Windows Update that caused the problem.
That problem was fixed, but it hit many people (myself included) and some chose to ditch MSE because of the issue.
