MSE Update Utility

MSE Update Utility is a simple app that updates Microsoft Security Essentials when Windows Update is disabled. Windows Update service is responsible for frequently updating MSE. But once it is disabled via Group Policy Editor, MSE won’t update anymore.

Microsoft’s idea for merging the MSE update with Windows Update is
perhaps the biggest downside of MSE and the only workaround until today
was to manually grab the latest virus definitions. Since MSE virus definitions are updated almost daily, the manual route was quite tiresome. This is where MSE Update Utility comes in.

From the main window you can select the update intervals, there are
four options given – Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Startup. I would
recommend going for either Daily or on Startup.

Updating the virus definitions during startup is the best way to keep
the system secure. It will automatically update the definitions and
notify you when they are complete.

By default it is checked to run on startup, you can always uncheck
this option later. MSE Update Utility is not for everyone, but if you
fall in any one of the category below then it will come surely handy:

  • Users in corporate office environment where the network administrators have disabled the Windows Update.
  • Those having difficulty updating MSE using Windows Update due to some problem.
  • When Windows Update is disabled by a virus.

Changes Made in v1.1:

  • You can now select the directory where you want to install the app
  • You don’t need to disable the UAC anymore in order to make it work during startup
  • The whole setup has been changed and is faster than before
  • The app is finally stable(fixed some bugs).
