There are 2 there to download from the MS update site:


and a defender update,although i had trouble getting this,it failed for some reason and it still failed when i tried to update defender manually,something about the wrong diskette being inserted and i needed diskette 2 in the drive?.

Engine Version 1.1.1372.0
Definition Version 1.14.1408.8

I'm getting the same on all 3 PCs.

For each attempt to download/install, it also puts a folder on the C drive, with a meaningless name in hexadecimal.

I had exactly the same problems today with Defender.

In the end I un-installed and re-installed it.

It then updated OK using Defender's own update function.

I know that this program is a Beta but, IMHO, it's still rather 'buggy'. :-(

Yes,i tried again today to get the update and it failed again with the same error,so i uninstalled and reinstalled,it then updated ok,buggy i agree but worth having).

Thx all.
