This was reported over on the Windows 7 forums. MSE hasn't been updating definitions since late last week, both automatically and manually. One of the posts provides a link where one can go to download updates directly from M$. If M$ doesn't fix this soon, I'm going back to AVAST!

I have two PC'S and MSE is working fine on both.

There was a MSE Update last week which knocked some Asus Machines with Updated UEFI Bios Out of Activation.

When I called MS India to re-activate machines, they said they were aware of the issue.

Since then I've been manually updating MSE so this might be why the updates are not being pushed into machines.

Just a guess on my part as MCE is no longer automatically updating on my machines also.

No, the definition update. You can find it by opening MSE and clicking on the update tab.

@LF... KB2310138 (Definition 1.143.533.0) Is the most current.
I believe the KB2310138 is generic for MSE updates, but the 1.143.533.0 was created today.

Ronnie, the KB2310138 isn't the important part, the 1.143.533.0 is what matters. Open MSE and click the "Update" tab to verify.

Actually, 1.43.568.0 is the latest. MSE won't update automatically ot from the the update tab. I have to go to here to get the latest updates.

I would try uninstalling and re-installing MSE.

Different numbers for different versions (x86 vs. x64) perhaps?
1.143.533.0 shows up as current for x86 XP.

MSE is now updating manually from the update tab. It may be updating automatically but I'm going to have to watch it for a day or two to be sure.

Just remember LF, MSE sometimes doesn't install manually when a definition is in the Windows Update waiting to be installed.

Same here -

The version I received about 30 minutes ago is 1.143.640.0

I also had no trouble running a manual update late last night when I first read this thread.

I went here yesterday ( http://www.microsoft.com/secur.....tomse.aspx ) and ran both options ( mpam-fe.exe - nis_full.exe ) and everything worked just fine today.

I just checked my installation of MSE and it is still showing the 1.143.629.0 that I manually updated to from within MSE this morning (at least I'm not having to got to M$'s website to update). MSE automatically updates on some kind of a schedule so it won't update the instant a new update comes out so I'm leaving it alone for a day or two to see if it will automatically update.
