    Usually there is a check mark next to the items below, such as Auto Protect, email scanning etc. Check to see which one of the items has a red check mark beside it. If you double click on the item checked red, it should tell you the problem. I disabled my auto update once and it read needs attention. Check your virus definitions like slipe said. I manually download from the computer system I got, just not auto download. You can go to the website and download also. Have never gotten a message as yours states. After you download, run a full system scan. I heard from somewhere that certain viruses stop you from downloading antivirus updates, even visiting antivirus sites. Don't know how true this is.
