Update Problem



I have an update KB2267602 for Windows Defender, will not update, went to update troubleshooter, clean install, still no good. Any ideas. T.I.A.


Way too little information to go on…

I guess you use Windows 10 based on your reply in this thread http://club.myce.com/f189/skip-win-10-a-339907/

I would need to have the error code generated from the failure to be able to pinpoint your trouble, but on a general level:

  1. The defender service may be disabled.
  2. Some 3rd-party security products may intentionally disable Windows Defender to prevent mutual interference.
  3. .Net framwork trouble.


Sorry about the lack of info, I am back to Win. 8.1, error:80070005


Xercus, thanks for the help, I realized I installed my own ant-virus and Defender turned off.


Based on first post, in addition to downloading and running http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9830262, did you reset windows update?:

It is related to permissions as the error is “Access denied”, The microsoft link for the exact error is:
To download the latest uppdate manually go here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923159/en-us
After download, you can try to install the update manually.

Edit: O.k. did not see your last prior to posting the reply. I leave it if others in need for help finds the thread.
