    24 hours on and like John I am also seeing two defender updates showing. Yesterdays KB2962409 update has vanished. For the defender updates I normally do nothing as I have a task set to run at 8am to update defender. So I shall leave it to it and see what it does.

    I can't say anything in relation with Windows Defender as I'm not using it but can confirm that here too, the Windows Update KB2962409 is not proposed anymore.

    Well, I told you that this would probably happen .....

    Both of you have a nice weekend !

    (I'll know in twenty minutes what happens with the defender updates)

    Same exact issue here but due to KB2975719 re-installing again.

    Defender updated twice and its still left the oldest of the definitions as an available update. MS, what are you doing ???

    I'll run a disk clean (system files) which should tidy it all up.

    Actually, I wanted to edit my previous post but you were faster ...
    As for WDefender, I wouldn't be that worried as a. these are "only" definitions not updates b. it is most probably also a little MS bug ...
    We'll see (I'm still following this thread, as I'm interested ).

    Edit : Ooops, was writing while you were posting. It would perhaps also be a good idea to run a quick sfc /scannow to be absolutely sure of the actual integrity of your system. Just a suggestion .....

    Thanks for the sfc suggestion but I don't really suspect any file corruption or anything like that. I've run a full disk clean and that now shows the latest defender update 1.1933.252.0 as waiting (even though it was installed earlier).

    Strange as it may sound that is correct now and tomorrow it should show the most current one again. That is because the task I have set up automatically installs the update through defender itself without reference to the normal Windows update screen. So the update screen changes daily but the definition updates from there never get installed... so all good at the moment.

    Hope that makes sense. So as to the original KB update appearing, well I have no idea. I didn't install it yesterday and today its not showing as available so I guess it looks like some MS glitch somewhere.

    I know this was resolved by Mooly, but I believe Microsoft has now corrected the problem that was existing for many MS users. See
