This problem also seems to be affecting Windows Live OneCare Safety
Scanner <http://onecare.live.com/site/en-au/default.htm?mkt=en-au> --
Protection Scan fails with ErrorID 0x04500816, ResultID=0x8007000e.
(Other functions still work properly.)

Antispyware definition version: 1.35.716.0
has now been removed both from Windows Update and from Windows Defender
Update.

<http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/ADL.aspx> now shows
Antispyware definition version: 1.35.744.0
Antispyware definition created on: 2008-24-06 17:09:04 PST
and DOES install correctly. (As of this writing that's only the link
"32 bit Definitions" on the LEFT side of the page -- the link on the
right side of the page under "Latest Definition Updates" is actually
still 1.35.724.0, which does NOT install.)

Protection Scan of Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner
<http://onecare.live.com/site/en-au/default.htm?mkt=en-au>
now works properly again.

As of this writing, the Definition version on
<http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/ADL.aspx> varies between
1.35.724.0 (doesn't work) and 1.35.744.0 (does work), probably because
all load balancing servers haven't yet been updated to the later
corrected version, so be sure to check the version before downloading.

Thank you; successfully installed definition version 1.35.744.0

Excellent - thanks for posting this.

So: All users should download 1.35.744.0 if they haven't already.

I'll be interested to hear whether this gets pushed via AU. I'll try to
remember to check my servers.

The manual update site was showing version 1.35.745.0 a few minutes ago and
now it's up to 1.35.745.9.
