Daily Windows Defender updates?!

  BigRik 19:43 12 Aug 2006

Evenin' all.

Can I just double check that all of us using the above are getting the updates daily? I only used to get them every few days. They're also a couple of days old when I get them.

While I'm here, when I've downloaded any patches or updates from the update symbol in the taskbar, the symbol disappears. I used to be told to click on it to install them, whereas now I find myself going to M$ Update to install them.

Why is this? Where have they gone?

I viewed a thread on disappearing updates some time ago, but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks for your time.

There's no reason why you should get daily Windows Defenderr updates (unless they are essential).

MS AntiSpyware updates arrivals varied as well.

Probably to prevent the servers being overloaded.

Are you on NTL?

"MS AntiSpyware updates arrivals varied as well"

But MS AntiSpyware has been replaced by Windows Defender and, according to this, click here expired on 31 July.

If you read the comment again of mine that you have quoted, you will notice it is in the past tense.

Good morning to you all, and thanks for replying.

In answer to your query Fruit Bat /\0/\, I am indeed with NTL (2Meg service). I'm guessing that makes a bit of a difference.

Yes NTL updates always seem o behind by a couple of days.

Have had defender updates most days last week.

Righto Fruit Bat /\0/\, thanks mate.

Any takers as to where the pesky updates and patches are disappearing to once downloaded?
