Windows 10: Windows Defender Updates
Windows Defender Updates
I wonder if anyone else has noticed that there have been no updates to Windows Defender since Version 22.214.171.124 created at 4:28 PM May 19 2016? I have used Defender (currently on 5 machines) for several years and there have always been several updates daily and now there hasn't been one for nearly 48 hours. All 5 of my machines come back "No Updates Available" when checking for updates.
Anyone have an update later?
My last Windows Defender update is the same as the one noted in your post above.
Same here. I even went to the Microsoft Malware Protection Center and that's the latest update available for Windows 10. When this happened with Windows 7 it usually resulted in a major version update.
Same here on XP. Glad it's not me. When they pulled the updates for a week around 4/14/16 I was doing manual def installs.
I believe that one time I got the wrong one for my OS & I believe it changed a system file or 2. Everything works except 1 security program, a component of Greatis Reg Run.
They've really tried to help, but the few suggestions caused more problems, so...................
Same here: Defender refuses to start, dead. My last update is 2 days ago: 126.96.36.199.

Interesting. I really wish I hadn't done those manual updates in April. I only got 1 bad one, but that'sall it took.
The executable file is not working: mpma-fe.exe
MSE/Windows 7 has been the same for 2 days.
I just checked and MSE updated but only the date changed not the update version. (188.8.131.52)
That is the first time the date has changed in two days and I check for updates 2 or 3 times every day.
Thanks for feedback Layback.

Hi, is there a way to disable downloading or opt-out of all Windows Defender Updates through Windows Update?
I don't understand why M$ updates Windows Defender multiple times per day and I'd rather update Windows Defender manually. Thanks.
Not sure if it's just me, but for some reason, since the Jan 12 patch Tuesday, I no longer see definition updates for Windows Defender on Windows Update's "View your update history" page.
Anyone else noticing this? I, for one, am happy about...
I have disabled Window Defender, but the Updates of Windows Defender Definition are still downloaded and installed.
How do I stop it?
I tried to use the Show or Hide updates to hide the Update of Windows Defender Definition, but it did not...
The last few days, Defender has been trying and failing to update its definitions. A manual update from Defender fails. Now Defender isn't working. Pressing Defender's Start button gives the message that the underlying service isn't running. The...
MS Defender updates from Windows Update in settings fail, other Updates successful, but MS Defender from Control panel can update the same definition updates without problems (why, oh, why? can't I just select and copy from settings? :()...
