Are you sure you have all the updates available for the Forefront Product itself?  
You could also try a manual update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2292741 and see if they kick back in.

Sometimes the timeout value is not long enough for the AV engines to update.

In the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Forefront Server Security\Exchange Server, create a DWORD called EngineDownloadTimeout and set the value to 600 decimal for 10 minutes. If that doesn't work try raising it to 900 (384 hex) for 15 minutes.
