Microsofr Security Essintial Manual Defention Updates

Posted on 2014-09-02
Last Modified: 2014-10-10

we have Microsoft Security Essentials installed in our product (Laptop & Desktop's), we need the ability to update MSE definition manually (the machine has no internet connection).
I try to follow Microsoft instruction here: Microsoft KB

I followed the instructions under "Manually download the latest updates", but nothing happens after clicking the EXE file (no error message, and the update is not implemented).

and advise on how to install MSE definition will be helpful (should be one click because the operation will be performed by sales person with no technical knowledge)

Thanks in advance

    You should just be able to download the x86 or x64 version of the latest updates from here - (see screenshot)

    Insure that you are downloading the correct updates. Are you using Security Essentials or Defender? Security Essentials was rebranded as defender some time ago. Also - security essentials is licensed for PERSONAL use only.
