Windows Defender to many Updates.

Defender updates everyday at 1.5MB is that a way of overloading my memory?
Could someone Please let me know why it updates all the time and for what
reason!

Have you observed whether the update version number (visible at the bottom
of the Windows Defender home page) changes? It may be that a particular
update is "stuck."

You might visit the security portal at:

http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal

and download the 32-bit definitions for Windows Defender, in the right
column (unless you are certain you are running a 64 bit version of Windows.)

Check the version number before and after this operation (open the
downloaded definitions and allow them to be installed!) and verify that they
have changed.

Then let Windows Defender run normally and see if this has taken care of the
issue.

Thank You very much. I did not notice, but I did go to the sight and download
the 32 bit cause I do have the 32 bit. I will give it awhile and see if it
works. Thank You !!!
