Easiest way to get this
by roddy32 / April 13, 2006 9:06 AM PDT
In reply to: Firefox v1.5.0.2

Close all tabs but one. Click on Help>>>>Check for updates and follow the prompts. Once the update is downloaded and installed, the last tab will close and reopen and verify the installation. This only took around 5 minutes doing it this way on dialup. The download via the updater on the program is only 557KB

Thanks, Donna and Roddy..

Got it.

My ISP Had a Major Malfunction about four days ago and couldn't get online. They finally got it fixed, so have been getting all my updates from the last four days. I think I'm up to date now.

Confused
by auggief / April 13, 2006 6:04 PM PDT

Windows update on the 12th updated defender to version 1.14.1395.2. I assume that that is a later version than 1.1.1347.0.
I use XP SP2 32 bit etc.

Auggie, they updated the program this time
by Donna Buenaventura / April 13, 2006 6:24 PM PDT
In reply to: Confused

so yes, the v1.1.1347.0 is the latest Windows Defender version.

v1.14.1395.2 is a definition version not a program version but the latest def version now is 1.14.1396.12

Here's what I have this time:
Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1347.0
Engine Version: 1.1.1303.0
Definition Version: 1.14.1396.12

Wow
by auggief / April 13, 2006 7:13 PM PDT

I understand it is beta program. I used Roddy's link to d/l and install update and the result was that defender was totally uninstalled from my computer.
I went into Microsoft site and d/l and installed it again and after some hassle got the updates and all is well.
