    I also just now got the MSE updates just now. (1.221.293.0) Did this on 3 Windows 7 systems.

    It also didn't spend a lot of time searching.
    Maybe Microsoft is doing a little fixing.

    While as was at it I checked for Windows updates. None were found but it's Searching went quite quickly compared on how it's been for the last few months.

    Windows 7 updates/patches have been a nightmare for me the last few months.

    I think it's safe to say whatever was causing the delayed updates has been solved now. Latest version on my machine is 5/22/16, 5:11 AM, 1.221.336.0

    Defender Server


    Defender is back to normal. Full scan negative. System Information (05-22-'16):

    Antimalware Client Version: 4.9.10586.0
    Engine Version: 1.1.12804.0
    Antivirus definition: 1.221.345.0
    Antispyware definition: 1.221.345.0
    Network Inspection System Engine Version: 2.1.12706.0
    Network Inspection System Definition Version: 116.3.0.0


    Is there a known reason why Defender server did not work for more then 48 hours?

    I have not seen anything why MSE or Defender had that delay.

    The bug is back: Can not get updates (frozen). Wu or directly from Defender app.
    Edit: It took about 15 minutes to get the update.

    They've been coming & going for me on XP & Vista (My Win 7 boxes are not currently in use; they've had the most trouble of all with Win updates in general.)

    I didn't even know that they still updated Windows XP and Vista.
