Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender

 


Exclude Files

To avoid unnecessary trouble / false positives, it is recommend to add all AADS program files to the Exclude list:

Microsoft Security Essentials


Windows Defender


Install Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows XP / Server 2003

Microsoft Security Essentials is still available for Windows XP and Server 2003, presumable because XP and Server 2003 are still being used in "Cash Machines", "Medical Equipment", "Industrial Equipment", large "Warships", etc.

Download Microsoft Security Essentials v2.1


 

Install Microsoft Security Essentials

Microsoft Security Essentials for XP/Server 2003 is not able anymore (....) to get the signature updates automatically.
Updating the signature database will be done with the batchfile "update_mse_x32.cmd".

After the installation of Microsoft Security Essentials, it will complain that it can not update the signature-database and that it is out-of-date. For now, ignore this error.

 


Update Microsoft Security Essentials

The following batch-file can be used to Update Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows XP and Server 2003.
 

Edit update_mse_x32.cmd

Some examples:

wget -e http_proxy=10.1.1.1:3180 -e https_proxy=10.1.1.1:3180 -t 10 --waitretry=120 --no-check-certificate -o update_mse_x32.log -O mpam-fe.exe http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=87342
wget -e http_proxy=192.168.1.100:8080 -e https_proxy=192.168.1.100:8080 -t 10 --waitretry=120 --no-check-certificate -o update_mse_x32.log -O mpam-fe.exe http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=87342
wget -t 10 --waitretry=120 --no-check-certificate -o update_mse_x32.log -O mpam-fe.exe http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=87342

Be sure not to make any typo error when editing the batchfile...


 

Schedule the Update Task for updating the signature database

The result should look like this:

 


Run the Task and see that it is running...

The Task might run for several minutes, depending on the size of the signature database that is being downloaded, and the speed of the internet connection / proxyserver.

When the Task is finished, Microsoft Security Essentials will be updated:



Configure Microsoft Security Essentials

Because the update is being done by means of the batchfile, you might as well uncheck the "update" function:
