    It says "Real-time protection isn't available in safe mode.

    Huh? I'm not in safe mode.

    Or is this some other safe mode they're talking about?

    I usually have Windows Update disabled and it wouldn't even start to update unless I started the service in services.msc. And it went about 98% then stopped and this popped up.

    On the Update page it says: "The virus and spyware definitions didn't update because of an internet or network connectivity problem". Yet my internet is working fine.


    Suggestions?

    :)

    Microsoft Security Essentials runs on Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

    Windows Defender, on the other hand, is a different program for Windows 7 compared to Windows 8.1 and 10. In Windows 7, Windows Defender is an "antispyware" program. In Windows 8.1 and 10, Windows Defender is an antivirus program. Thus, you need different
    signatures for these two different programs. There is no such issue with respect to Microsoft Security Essentials.
