However, I don't want to foster a misapprehension here: Your first URL is
for the 64 bit version of Windows Defender. So far so good--readers need to
remember that it is the version of the OS you are running which determines
whether you need this version--Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or
Windows Vista x64 run only on 64-bit processors. However, the majority of
users of machines with these processors are running the standard 32-bit
Windows XP Professional.

Beyond that basic issue, the definition updates that you mention are the
same definitions that go with the 32-bit versions of Windows Defender--i.e.
they are not "64 bit" definitions.

This does beg the question of whether there are specific 64 bit versions of
malware--and I believe that the answer to that is "yes"--and don't have a
picture of how this is handled by the antimalware teams at Microsoft--except
that I am certain they are aware of the issue and that's part of the reason
for specific x64 versions of antimalware products.
