Hello All - Having problems with Windows update as shown in screenshot. The one that says installing stays that way for over half an hour with no progress.

If the definition update does not install via Windows Update and it displays an error code, you need to update it via Windows Security.
It will update in that manner.
I have the same problem from time to time.

I just finished replying to your other thread.

As far as Windows Security is concerned, if it will not update via Windows Update, you can update it within the app itself.

I have that same issue from time to time, so I update its definition files within the app.
