    Default Windows Defender Updating Problem

    A couple of days ago I noticed a windows defender icon in my tray. It has
    what appears to be an ! on it. So I clicked it.

    It says to check for updates now, so I do. It comes back as no updates
    available.

    So I go to Windows Update, all my updates there are applied and there are no
    new ones available.

    So I click the icon for Windows Security Center, it says Defender is running
    but out of date, next to it, it says "update now." So I click button and it
    looks and comes back saying "no new updates available"

    What's going on? Why is the icon in the tray? I'm running a 32bit version of
    Home Vista Premium that is not on any network. It's strictly home use.



    Is there another reason the Windows Defender Icon is in the tray? I've never
    seen it there before.

    I have exactly the same problem. On the 13 Aug Microsoft issued 9 Updates, 5
    of these were security updates. I suspect this is the cause. I have disabled
    Defender in Msconfig to get rid of the irritating exclamation mark. Suspect
    this issue will probably be fixed in the next batch of updates.

    Same problem; also started with Mid-August updates. Any clues from Microsoft
    would be most welcome.

    Another symptom since the updates is that the PC will not reliably awaken
    from "sleep".

    Tried restoring to date prior to updates but both symptoms persist.

    Default Re: I FIXED IT

    I went to Microsoft and downloaded the latest update directly from the site.

    Then the Windows Defender Icon and the "!" went away

    For some reason the system wouldn't get the updates automatically

    But it did take care of the issue once I downloaded the update maually from
    the site
