Click the little arrow next to the big blue ? mark, then click About and the update button is there.

Open Windows Defender, there is a little arrow on the extreme top RHS, click on that chose "About Windows Defender" and there is a large button saying "Check for Updates"

Forgot to add there will be a little icon appear in the system tray while it is updating.

Whoops (perhaps confusing),should have stated 'Open Defender on screen, then click on Defender File (top left).

Ok thx i found it now,was hidden quite well,i would have thought it would have been in sight on the main app.

I may be wrong here and put in my place,i believe i read somewhere that you dont have to manually update Defender as its merged with your Microsoft Windows Updates.
I could be wrong,but im pretty sure i read it somewhere.

However,if Defender is not updating and you recently updated from Antispy...you could well have the problem saying Defender out of date !

This should cure any updates worries.
