    Hello. Windows Defender is unable to check for updates to its definitions,
    even though Windows Update is set to update automatically. Might you have any
    ideas what can be done to rectify this situation? Thank you in advance for
    any help you can offer.

    Under ' Latest Versions ' in the right frame, click the Windows Defender
    link for ' 32bit Definitions '
    [NOTE: IF the system is 64bit, then click that link]
    Save the file
    Close the browser and any other open programs
    Run mpas-fe.exe to install the latest definitions for Defender

    unable to write to the log file

    Could be a misconfigured firewall, interference from antivirus/security
    software, damaged update software controls, or the log *might* be corrupted.

    To eliminate the possibility of the log being corrupted, locate the
    WindowsUpdate.log in the WINDOWS directory [[folder]
    *Right* click it and choose Properties
    What shows for ' Size ' ?

    Please copy and paste the last 50 or so lines of the log into your reply.

    Which antivirus program/security suite is installed ?

    Suggest you download and install the latest version of the Windows
    Update Agent:

    Save it, do NOT run it. When the download is complete close the browser.
    Now run WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

    IF a message appears stating that the Update Agent is already installed,
    then go to Start > Run > click the Browse button
    Navigate to where WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe was saved and click once
    on it
    Click the Open button
    In the Open: line, click once on WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe
    It should now be highlighted in blue
    Click once after the last quotation mark "
    Push the Space Bar on the keyboard and enter /wuforce
    The entry should now look like this

    "C:\<locationoffile>\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" /wuforce

    Note the space after the last quotation mark and the /

    Click OK or press Enter

    Now try to access the Windows Update site
