how to update windows defender offline

windows_defender_iconYeah, it’s been a while since I post how to make a mac-like dock on your windows xp. Now I just want to share about how to update windows defender offline-mode :)

To download the Windows Defender definition update file for 32-bit (x86-based) versions of Windows, click the following link: DOWNLOAD

After you click this link, click Run to install the definition file immediately, or click Save to save the definition file to the computer. If you click Save, remember the folder where you save the file.

To install the saved definition update file, click Start, click Run, locate the folder where you saved the definition file, double-click the Mpas-fe.exe file, and then click OK.

Note To install the file on a Windows Vista-based computer, right-click the file, and then click Run As Administrator to install it.

When the definition file runs, a file extraction dialog box appears. The dialog box indicates that the definition update is installing. After the file extraction dialog box closes, you can verify that the Windows Defender definitions have been updated. To do this, open Windows Defender, and then check the definition version that is listed in the box at the bottom of the Windows Defender Home dialog box. Thats it !!

Now your windows defender has update to a newer version…Enjoy :)
