  3. ok cool. I ASSume the windows defender definition file in WUD will still give an error. I will try to do a test in a few hours and report back. Thanks again for the updates and continued win 7 support! Regards...
  4. mooms, think hard if you are using any new software, or any other changes you may have made to the host computer, RECENTLY. I installed cryptoprevent software that protects against the cryptolocker virus. I had its protection 1 higher protection level than default. I could not install a piece of software for 3 weeks and could not figure it out. Then I remembered the cryptoprevent program that I started using months prior. Since its invisible, runs in the background, I forgot all about it. I changed the protection to default (which is what I use now) and that problem software installed easily. I hadn't used that crypto software in awhile. I just started using it again because I got hit with a variation of the cryptolocker virus. Worse virus I've ever encountered. I have my main HD and 2 clones in my case. This virus spreads to the backup clones also. it encrypts all docs, jpgs, mp3, pdf's and holds them for ransom. For some reason it also encrypted my entire wintoolkit folder with all the files I use to make the iso. That was a killer. I also have 45gb of family pics, irreplaceable! There is no known cure or decryption key. I luckily also clone my main drive to an external (if you dont disconnect it from usb it will also spread to the external. I heard it will also spread to the cloud but not sure on that, because I dont use the cloud.) After I clone to the external (about every 3 weeks) I disconnect from usb and store it in my desk drawer. I thought my defender definition problem was related to the fact that I am using cryptoprevent again, RECENTLY. I disabled it but apparently that's not the cause... regards...
  5. no its kb915597. as of today the definition file is 1.281.414.0 if you google microsoft security portal choose the hit that says get the latest definitions. on that page are all the security definitions for different versions of windows. regards...
  6. thanks rhahgleuhargh. It's a relief to know its not my installation. I can now stop testing and wasting time. There must be a way to alert M$ of this problem? In the meantime I will continue to incorporate the mpas-fe.exe file in the iso and place it on the desktop. regards

  8. mooms, I went to ctrl panel, admin tools, clicked on event viewer. the overall and summary screen opens. I don't see any errors with it. I assume its working... regards...
  9. Still no progress on why defender definitions no longer work through WU. I DL a file named MPAS-FE.exe which are the defender definitions file and have it placed on the desktop via WTK. If I execute this file it will update the definitions as of the date of that file. Till this issue is resolved I will have to update in this fashion so WU no longer will ask for defender definitions files. I don't know what happens when definitions are to be updated again, which is frequently. If before I execute that file and try to update via defender itself, that also gives an error and will not update. I tried different scenarios of making the iso including NO tweaks to NO silents except kb4099950, NFW and telemetry. Will report back if and when resolved. ps...while googling this issue many others have also had it. Some said it was MS and they fixed the server... regards...
  10. I have experimented for a few hours as this is very time consuming. From what I discovered through my testing and googling the issue I would think the issue is with getting defender updates through the WUD service. There is a M$ website (security portal) where you can DL the latest definitions as per your OS. When executing that file it works silently, no progress bar etc. starting defender shows that it has the latest update (that site updates daily) and a subsequent WUD check for updates no longer lists defender as an important update. I'm very surprised no one else has come across this issue. Seems like a WU issue, not our installation(s). regards...
  11. rhahgleuhargh thanks for the feedback. As you know I have been a member of this blog for a long time and have been making the iso for over 2 years. every month when my vm is completed and i go to do WUD there have always been naturally a few different updates each month but ALWAYS MRT and defender definition (kb). All of a sudden this month the defender kb update fails. This has never happened before. I realize that there are a few different methods and many variations for creating the iso, classic, convenience and thiersee uses his own method. I thought it was a $M server issue but all my home computers are getting the defender updates, no problem. While minor it seems to be a bug (all of a sudden) in my install. My concern is that I believe if an update keeps failing and you dont hide it I think it prevents new updates from being recognized. Lastly how do you DISABLE windows defender in your VM? regards
  12. thiersee I understand that. But if no one else is getting an error on the simple WUD install of the monthly windows defender definitions then it has to be in my installation. I used last months (october) iso on my VM and that also got failed to update defender definitions. I did remove the IE11 meet the browser tweak because it doesn't seem to be needed anymore. other than that its a typical new iso creation. I am using the lastest NFW, FP, reader, ccleaner and telemetry. Guess I'll keep experimenting. regards...
  13. gentlemen, while I do not think this is big issue, its confusing. The november iso disk I created went perfectly. However WUD will not install defender updates. I check my own computer and the latest defender update was successful. I then re-installed the nov. iso on the VM a second time and now the latest defender update will not update. The initial 4 out of 5 updates including MRT were installed with no problems. I can't see how our project here can be doing this, just asking if anyone else has this "bug"? regards...
