Widows Defender Problem.

  birdface 12:31 23 Oct 2006

Problem with Windows Defender since Downloading IE7,Windows Defender updates Havent been updated for 18 days,Tried various things to get it updated,No luck, Decided easiest way was to uninstall And re-download,Went to, Add Remove,But it was no longer on there,I still get it on, Start All programs,What is the best remedy,Remove all traces of it,Run C Cleaner, And re-install,Or is there an easier method,

I should try a reinstall first. If that works and you still can`t update then uninstall, `remove all traces` and try a reinstall.

In Windows Defender go to Help>About and try the Check for Updates button. Let us know what happens.

Yes Taff Already tried that and a few other things, But no luck,Just stays the same, I was thinking if it is not on the add remove program, can it still get updated.

Hi, just noticed it is still the Beta 2 version that i am on, Has that been updated Recently.

I`m on version 1.1.1347.0 (Beta 2)so I think you`re up to date.

Yes same version Taff,Could you check yours and find out if it is on the Add Remove, Program. If yours is on there, I will delete mine and try a re-install.

Open Defender and check the "Definition Version" at the bottom of the screen. Mine is 1.14.1729.5
created 18th October, so I think that will be up to date. I have just tried updating and there was no change.

Ok Reprawn.Checked mine it says, 1.14.1729.5

  birdface 14:00 23 Oct 2006

Sorry must have been reading yours, Mine is 1.14.1715.11 on 04.10.2006

I would uninstall it, reboot and run a reg cleaner then reinstall from a new download just in case.
