I have been using Windows Defender for a number of weeks and have had no problems apart from when I tried to update my spyware definitions (just over an hour ago) after seeing an orange exclamation mark on the taskbar.

click here


I checked in Administrative tools > Services and the 'Windows Defender Service' *is* enabled and in fact it is set to automatic.

I had no trouble last time with the updates so what's changed?

Anyone else get this error message?

Thanks.
