Only 5 updates for Windows 7 64 Bit tonight for those that update manually.

8 + 1 optional for me but thanks.

Anyone know why MSE does not update automatically? like most anti-virus software, or is this yet another strange Microsoft peccadillo.

It always updated automatically for me even though I had windows updates set to manual.

8 + 2 for me also(32 bit). MSE (when it first came out) updated automaticly but it stoped doing it some time ago. I also wonder why.

Well I suppose I am 1 year behind as I removed it last year while it still updated.

Does it not update even when you have Windows updates set to automatic.

  gengiscant 13 Jul 11

No it does not.

  buteman 13 Jul 11

Have you changed the time for it to run it is usually set for about 3 Am when everyone is asleep.

Not sure if that is for scans or the updates.

That's for scans.But I have just change the time of the scan to a time when the PC will be on and it also checks for updates pre-scan. So I will wait and see.

Typical Microsoft though, does it not look at other similar products and say to itself now that's a good feature I'll copy that. No, lets go the more convoluted way.All to often Microsoft seem to make things as difficult as possible to use. Skydrive as opposed to Dropbox. 1 simple to use the other rubbish. No need to guess which one is rubbish.
