    Default Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) Update Utility

    MSE Update Utility is a simple app that updates Microsoft Security Essentials when Windows Update is disabled. Windows Update service is responsible for frequently updating MSE. But once it is disabled via Group Policy Editor, MSE won’t update anymore.





    You can download the MSE Update Utility from AddictiveTips.

    This is a good tip but why disable Windows update as it should always be on to enable Windows to be updated with the latest patches.

    I agree seti. At least turn it on and set it to notify before installing.

    Thanks for the tip, but I'm curious under what conditions anyone would or should disable windows update?

    I can see setting it to notify rather than automatic but IMHO it should never be turned off.
