    I canīt update my windows defender


    Iīve got a dial up conection thru a proxy and i canīt update the windows defender when I try show this error message:
    0x8024402c Windows defender couldnīt install the definition updates because the proxy server or taget server name canīt be resolve.
    Any help about this?

    Probably not a good idea to try and perform an update through a proxy through a dial-up connection. Have you tried it without the proxy, or are you required to use the proxy?

    What is the proxy for, it could be trying to access the proxy server which might not allow you to obtain the updates.

    Have you tried not going via proxy?
