Windows Defender not updating

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Kolin Tregaskes, Apr 1, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I have a clean install of Vista Ultimate on my laptop computer and have
    noticed that Windows Defender is not updating. I've forced an update but
    not joy I receive the error code: 0x80240029. I thought it might be that I
    use Firefox as my default browser but I've tried it with IE7 as default and
    still have the same issue.

    Any help much appreciated? I do have Avast install and use Windows Firewall
    and Spyware Doctor for my security apps.

    Hi,

    The same issue happened to me on Windows Vista Home Premium. There's nothing
    I can find from Microsoft webpages (including discussion groups). Does anyone
    know how to remove Windows Defender from Windows Vista? Thanks a lot.

    It can't update by itself; it needs windows update to do it.
