Update signature file

I run Windows Defender at home with no problems.

At work the signature file is now 145 days old. IT WILL NOT UPDATE ! How do
I make it update. There was a routine about Msiexec.exe but that did not
help. I backed up my system and deleted everything I could find about
Defender from the registry. Still no good.
How do I make the thing update? What is the file called that is 145 days
old, where does it live, how do I delete it so that it will download a new
one? I download a new copy of the programme in the hope that an updated
signature file will come with it, but that does not seem to be the case.

I could use some helpful advise please!

Hello Chris,

I had the same problem and I uninstall the Windows Defender and reinstalled
it and I didn't find problems again.
To update check "Help options", "about..." and check for updates, I think
in minutes will appear the message that windows defender was updated.

Best Regards, Cido.

Hello Chris,

Whatever you do, (installing and updateting or unistalling) always as a
adinistratºr.
This is the key!
The installation as an admin is not enough.
You needed to login as an adm!n.

Can you gº to Windows Update, select Express (Get high-priority updates),
and apply all offered updªtes
http://update.microsoft.com

Once that is finished, can you verify the update installs?

There are many pre-requisite files which are needed from windows update and
signature update with windows defender will fail until you hªve these f!les.

Latest version is as follows:
WD v. 1.1.1347.0
Engine v. 1.1.1441.0
Signature v. 1.14.1506.7

For the benefit of the community reading this post, please rate the pºst.

I hope this post is helpful.

Let us know how it works ºut.
