    Microsoft Security Essentials

    I recently started using MSE. The Definition updates for the MSE shows as an optional update.
    Is there a way that these daily updates can run automatically or not?
    Many thanks

    While there isn't an option for scheduling updates, MSE does run daily updates by default...

    MSE will update daily on it's own. You can check that by looking at the Update Tab. If Windows Update runs and it finds an update it appears as an optional update but MSE will install anyway at next check.

    nothing to worry about and perfectly fine to either update or leave as is. Personally, I always say yes to the update.
