    Windows Defender (Beta 2) Updates

    I've recently upgraded from AntiSpyware following info in the other thread. I know it's beta but is anyone else having problems with the installation of updated definitions? Defender tells me I should update but then won't install the downloads I get error 0x80070643 which I can't find on the Microsoft site.
    Any ideas?

    See this MSN Search: 0x80070643 for several links relating to update failure.

    Thanks for your pointer, Joe. I tried a few of the threads but nothing worked.
    I've gone back to AntiSpyware for now.

    Hi Peter,

    Just to let you know.
    I did the same on my desktop (XP Pro) and my laptop (XP home). The update feature on the desktop does not work, no error message though, it keeps saying I should update. On the laptop everything works ok.

    So far, no solution. I am thinking of going back to AntiSpyware for the desktop.
    Regards, Teunis

    Link goes nowhere, and searching for 915105 on the Microsoft support shows no such KB bulletin.

    Peter,

    You could try this link MSKB article 915105. It did not work for me though. I got another error applying following this advice.

    Regards, Teun

    I edited the URL - there were some superfluous spaces in it. The link works for me now (but I cannot guarantee its usefulness)

    The procedure in KB 915105 worked for me. Thanks for the editing, and thanks, too, Jefferson.
