Windows Update problem?

  mattyc_92 16:28 24 Feb 2006

Hi, I have "successfully" installed "Definition Update 1.13.1282.6 for BETA Windows Defender (KB915597)" about 5 times now, but about 10 seconds after it has been "successfully installed", it re-appears....
Anyone know a direct link for me to install it manually?

As usual, thanks in advance

I used this fix by Tristar click here
and it cured my similar problem. Don't know where he found the fix though.

Thanks for the repsonse chub_tor....

As the he run command "Msiexec /x {A5CC2A09-E9D3-49EC-923D-03874BBD4C2C}" uninstalls Windows Defender, I will first try uninstalling it via Add or Remove Programs....

Will report back as soon as I have done this...

It doesn't uninstall it apparently, there was a thread about it. I will try and find it for you, but apparently that is the way to go. I am lucky and have had no problems so I haven't tried it.

Ok, so I have uninstalled Windows Defender and it didn't help
I ended up running the command and it seems to have worked so far...

Thanks to chub_tor and rawprawn for their input and interest

Will tick as resolved
