Anyone having trouble installing the latest security update? It's for MSE and mine rejects the install.

If you use MSE maybe it already downloaded the update to your computer.Maybe check to see what were the last updates downloaded to see if that is one of them.

Hello Buteman, I assumed it's an upgrade not just an update. Would you know what the latest MSE version is?

No problems here with Vista. I have my updates set to notify only and this morning I had 1 definition update (as normal and that instals with no user input) and another for a new version of MSE.

I selected just the MSE one (and not the definitions one) and left Vista to it. Installed OK and the daily scan commenced as normal at the alloted time with the "new" MSE grabbing the latest update which I assume was the one I hadn't purposely selected.

The easiest way would be to do a System Restore just prior to the problem occurring - also see here enter link description here
