    notification box telling me defender is out of date.updates are set to
    automatically download but never has.the green bar checking for updates just
    scrolls across the screen endleesly .history updates says updates have never
    been downloaded or installed.i have tried disabling bullguard but this makes
    no difference.

    Was Bullguard installed the first time the system attempted to update
    Windows Defender's definitions ?
    Have other updates downloaded and installed properly ?

    I *strongly* hope that the system has a good warranty as you should be
    bringing it back to where it was purchased.
    Have them fix whatever it is that they broke since the system has never
    downloaded/installed updates nor done anything that *you* would like it
    to do.
    Have them uninstall Bullguard first and then check the integrity of the
    WMI repository. The repository 'sounds' as if it's been damaged by
    Bullguard or, <----- "something else" .
    IF they feign ignorance, tell them to type the following at an Elevated
    Command Prompt: winmgmt /?
    That will tell them how to check the integrity of the WMI besides other
    options available, such as rebuilding it now that Bullguard nuked it.
