    Can someone plz tell me if this could cause this error to come up?



    I am not blaming anyone if it does as I am just curious if this could be the issue?

    thx

    Dunno....I have my automatic updates left on....so my Microsoft Windows and Office updates comes down automatically, as well as antivirus updates.

    Judging from the link you have, it appears that manual update tools relies on .NET Frame. And in reading all the comments below..it appears some people are having issues with that home-grown update utility.

    Last week Microsoft released 5x super critical updates which patched utilized security holes in IE that "drive by installs" exploited. You can be damn sure my clients got those updates..automatically!

    Thx for responding Cat. I uninstalled it and see if that solves the issue. My updates are up to date on both as well so I will see if that was causing it. I don't think the updater worked that well anyways because I was using it and it missed an update that I had to manually do. Oh well.

    thx

    That was the culprit for sure. I was away from PC for an hour, came back but no message.

    av-comparatives.org just introduced a new "Whole Dynamic Test" which is supposed to focus on todays style of web based threats, a more "real world" test that home users face.

    MSE did well, 4th place.
    Symantec, Kaspersky, Antivir, MSE, and Avast took up the first 5 spots.
    The new darling of the year, G-Data, finally fell a bit, as it had been dominating in several different tests this year.

    4th place..not bad for the first 6 months of MSE.

    Yup...av-comparatives.org did a bunch of tests recently, and MSE faired VERY well....often coming in up in the top 4 of all brands.

    They recently did their 2009 overall awards just a few days ago, Symantec, Kaspersky, and Eset too 1st, 2nd, 'n 3rd.

    Same for me but I wonder if the versions are the same for WinXP vs Win7 or Vista? The 1959 version may be for Win7 while XP remains at 1611. Dunno. I forced the update as well on XP...no go. Still on 1611.

    Good Point. I was going on what was posted at majorgeeks. Maybe it just has not hit automatic updates yet.

    Version 1.0.1959.0 is for all OS's, it isn't coming through the autoupdate feature of MSE yet so they're servers don't get overloaded. You can download the latest version right from the Official MSE Website, you are supposed to be able to install over your current version and it simply upgrades it, but I have already seen a few instances where you need to uninstall the old and reinstall the new.

    Stumbled across a registry edit to reel in the signature update check intervals...default is 24 hours

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Microsoft Antimalware/Signature Update
    Find "SignatureUpdateInterval"
    Change the DWORD value for "SignatureUpdateInterval" to any number between 3, 6 or 12 (Default is 24) then click ok and exit the registry

    That's odd, I've downloaded it from the MSE site and Majorgeeks and they are both the latest version.
