No new definitions or updates are available for Forefront Client Security

Recommended Posts

I’ve seen this problem before on my Windows 7 machines but I thought it was a Windows 7 issue… now I’ve experienced it in a Windows XP virtual machine.


After installing Forefront Client Security (FCS) (the next version of which will be known as Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010), Windows complains that it’s antivirus protection is out of date (and it is - the definitions date back to 2006) but Forefront says there are no updates.

To resolve this, visit Windows Update and elect to use Microsoft Update instead. After the update settings are changed, FCS works out that there are some downloads available (and directs you to the Microsoft Update Catalog) but if you ignore that and let Microsoft Update run its course, FCS is updated automatically and no further intervention is required.
