Did you receive the update through WU [Windows Update]?
I say this because it appears to be an old update!

This might also help => How to troubleshoot definition update issues for Windows Defender.

I hope this helps!

Yes, i just installed windows seven again, and i cant seem to get past this update. Also, that article didnt help. I should probably also mention, that windows says that its updated, but if i search for updates, this update will show up again.

Hi Dynentan,
Please run sfc /scannow from Administrative Command Prompt.
Click type cmd in textbox, right click it when it appears and choose run as administrator.
at the > type sfc /scannow
This will manually start the system file checker and check for an replace system files. If there are some other issues they will be in the CBS.log
SURT performs additional checks, then tries to replace or repair and creates another report, CheckSUR.log
SURT is a self-extracting installer I created to help automate the process for less computer savvy individuals that traverse SevenForums seeking assistance.
Being that your system specs omit x64 x32 or x86, please download and run the appropriate SURT for your computer from my footer, linked to my OneDrive account.
A copy of your CBS log with CheckSUR.log will appear on your desktop
Please zip/compress and upload it.
If it's larger than 8 MB, delete the .cab zip/compressed files from the CBS folder on your desktop, zip and upload please.

I have had problems installing the windows defender update since last year. I tried to inquire about the fact from the Microsoft forums without an answer.

The only solution I found was to download the latest definitions directly from the official website.

* https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/definitions

This is the topic that I opened in the Microsoft forums

Windows 7 → Error 8050800C al actualizar definiciones de Windows - Microsoft Community

It is in Spanish because it is my native language.

I also opened a topic here in the forum without an answer.

Please follow Windows Update Posting Instructions

Free programs. I would recommend using another antivirus than Windows Defender.
Adding Anti-Exploit, & Anti-Ransomware too.
