windows defender update

Post by nyc50 » February 7th, 2018, 7:57 am

Not that I depend on it for protection, but is anyone else having a problem with two updates to Windows Defender? Started yesterday and I keep getting an error message. No problem with the Flash update MS posted. Seems others reporting this problem going back to December but no solutions offered on MS. One update is to the actual program and the other is for definitions. Should I care?

Seems to be fixed. Eventually Google led me to an MS app that fixes Update program. Seems the reason those two mentioned updates would not install was because they were already on my computer.
