Windows defender updates

I have read all the previous mail re updating Defender. I have just downloaded D and now get the message that the definitions are 66 days out of date!

I have tried to follow all the advice from previous correspondents but still it seems that it is not checking for updates - or at least nothing seems to be happening when I click check for updates.

I have had a little yellow shield appear in the task bat saying update 33% but it stays at 33%.

Any further halp would be greatly appreciated

Uninstall, reinstall and update again.

I installed Defender on my daughter's laptop about 2 hours ago. Like you, the initial install told me that definitions were 66 days old.

It updated with no problems at all.
