    I have the same problem... I have Windows XP Professional and installed this
    just last night, but Defender claims that the definition is not updated for
    past 65 days. When selecting the "Check for UPdate' button, the above message
    appears in the system tray.
    Anyone else have this problem? Any solution?
    Thanks in advance.

    start run regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 initpki.dll
    regsvr32 mssip32.dll

  3. If you go to Windows Update, do an express scan, are Defender updates
    offered? Apply all offered critical updates.
