Microsoft security essentials not updating

Nb the update I cannot do is 1.4mb but I am anticipating windows will throw me a new update any day soon which could be anywhere from 30mb to 200mb and it could fail all of it leaving me prone to attacks.

If they don't fix this "new feature" soon I'm dumping it from my one computer still using it.

Hi forum, I'm having some problem about a week ago with Microsoft security essentials bugging out on me and not opening or updating.

The red X icon appeared in my taskbar and no matter how many times I tried updating Security Essentials manually it would go through the motions, downloading definitions and trying to apply them.

It would then give me an error message with a code (sorry, I just "fixed" it for the 2nd time and forgot to write down or take a snapshot of the error code).

Leo advises simply uninstalling Microsoft Security Essentials and then reinstalling it.

If that doesn't clear the issue, then Leo advises scanning with the Malicious Software Removal Tool (click start enter), and then choose "full scan".

The new system update I believe may be to do with security as-well!!
