Problems updating microsoft security essentials
Linda can’t update her Microsoft Security Essentials This past Sunday, I received a notice from Microsoft Security Essentials stating my computer might be at risk that it needed updating.
Since that day, I have tried to update MSE numerous times but get a reading that it could not install updates because of internet or network connectivity problems. This happens to a lot of people — so much so that Microsoft has a special page where you can download the updates manually.
thinking that this issues is coused because of inconsistencies in hdd as i had solaris installed on this system, did a debug & chkdsk on disk, on issues with hdd detected.
can some one pls help me, as i have tried uninstalling & doing a clean install, even it didnt helped.The following Microsoft KB article applies to Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 both 32bit and 64bit editions. Be careful you download the correct version for your computer.Once you install MSE on a machine, it will try to update the virus and spyware definition.If the machine is not connected to the Internet, it will display “Microsoft Security Essentials wasn’t able to complete the virus and spyware definition updates.
