    Definition update MSE - KB2310138 and the 80070490 error code

    Hi

    When I try to install the "Definition update Microsoft Security Essentials - KB2310138 (Definition 1.191.4015.0)" update with Windows Update in Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 64-bit, I get the 80070490 error code. How come? How do I solve it?

    Note: The output of the sfc /scannow command tells me that the system is not corrupt.

    Thanks

    Bye

    If not, then you could try uninstalling MSE and re-installing it.

    This isn't a one-off update installed through Windows Updates. It is a daily or more frequent anti-virus definitions update for MSE and should be installed through that program. Open MSE, select the update page and hit the update button. It only appears on Windows Update as an optional update and should be ignored there. Sorry I didn't pick up on the exact nature of this update sooner.
