Windows Defender gets updates twice

  rawprawn 08:56 12 May 2009

I have my updates set to inform me before installing (To stop IE 8 auto install) The last two days the updates for windows defender have been installed twice.
I get one update and install successfully then immediately the same again.
Any Ideas, I have turned WD Off to stop it.

Morning Dennis - What's wrong with IE8.

As for Defender, I turned that off a lifetime ago.

Run Microsoft updates manually And when w/defender update appears click the little + at the side.Another box will appear underneath .Click the little square do not show this update again.And that will get rid of it.

Morning John, I tried it three times in total and had the smae two problems each time.
1, Message "Internet Explorer has stopped working and will close"
2, Very Slow opening new Tabs.

Morning buteman, Yes I will try that because when I look closely all the six updates over the last week are the same.

Morning rawprawn.I always run my Microsoft updates manually it is usually the second tuesday of every month which makes it to-night.
Like Ventanas I am not a great fan of W/Defender and removed it a long time ago.
It is a bit like Norton you either like it or hate it.On a popularity basis I think about 50% like it and 50% don't
Very slow opening Tabs.I have mine turned off as I got fed up with them.
Anyhow I hope you get your problem solved.Maybe the updates to-night might fix it.

You can always do the same with IE8 update.And tick the button not to show that update again .You can always reverse it at any time if you change your mind.

I have already done that, which is why I changed the settings in update so that nothing else "snuck up" on me. ;))
