    This started the other day with my XP machine, Auto update keeps reminding me
    that newer Defender signiture updates are available.
    Here is a bit of my "update history"
    Definition Update 1.14.1350.3 for BETA Windows Defender (KB915597)

    What a Relief to find info on the exact same problem I've been experiencing
    since March 8th. And to find it at Microsoft no less! This is so much
    better than the Knowledgebase which takes forever and a day to attempt to
    find anything!

    I began experiencing problems with the Defender updates on Wed March 8, 2006
    with the continual notification and "Empty - 0 kb" download of the following
    Def. update 1.14.1314.1 - And on each successive update.

    Thanks for providing the link that has info on removing the definition file
    and beginning anew with the update process!!

    Also thanks for the great Defender program!

    Debbie

    Ever since that, each successive Definition Update has resulted in the same
    irritating problem

    I have a similar problem, and, unlike bratpack, the answer doesn't help at all.

    I just updated from Windows 95 to Windows ME on my 200MMX, 32MB RAM old
    clunker, which continues to serve me well.

    I appreciate the convenience of the new-for-me automatic update.

    However, one of my security updates, KB828026, keeps repeating. I have
    "successfully" installed it some six times now, yet every morning, I get the
    little shield downloading it again and telling me to install it again.

    It is I believe actually a security update for Windows Media Player 9, which
    I got updated to in the overall update process. I also updated from IE 5.5 to
    IE 6 SP 1 in the middle of this, if that is relevant.

    Have I in fact successfully installed the update? If not, how do I? If so,
    how do I get Windows Update to stop bugging me about it? And, am I eating up
    hard disc space (in which my Model T is not terribly oversupplied with) with
    six or more copies of this update, and if so, how do I find them and clean
    them out?

    I forgot to bring up something about the fix with the defintions.

    You might want to mention that when a person runs the remove on the
    definition file that they will receive a message asking: "Are you sure you
    want to uninstall?"

    It almost sounds like the Defender program will be uninstalled because it
    doesn't specify "are you sure you want to uninstall the Definition File".

    Just thought you might want to consider this since there are many people who
    don't have much pc experience and this could prompt many questions due to the
    lack of clarity.

    Thanks again. :)

    Msiexec /x {A5CC2A09-E9D3-49EC-923D-03874BBD4C2C},
    Same problem with Defender update KB915597
    Ran the Microsoft solution above and got an error message: This Installation
    package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can
    access it,or contact the application vendor so that this is a valid Windows
    Installation Package. I have reinstalled Defender in case, but same message
    persists.

    This is obviously an ongoing issue KB915597 frequently appears in 'Updates
    are ready for your computer' It seems there are many versions of this one
    Latest noted is 1.71.129.0 but in latest definitions on Defender site there
    is 1.71.135.0
