    Windows Update Error 0x80070643 for Windows Defender


    Still having issues updating Windows Defender as of 4/3/17, 12:30pm CDT on 10 Pro winver 14393.969 . Windows Update shows Error 0x80070643 but manual update via Defender GUI installed latest virus/spyware definition 1.239.713.0. Re-running Window Update shows everything is up to date.

    It's been at least 4 days since this glitch first appeared on my machines. Any thoughts on why Microsoft is delaying a fix? Perhaps to include in next Patch Tuesday 4/11?

    According to Dona Sarkar they have "not seen" that problem, I hope that in the time that has elapsed since the publication of that tweet they already have seen the problem.

    Thank you @jyim89 for this. Funnily enough I have been able to update Defender (through windows update or from Defender itself) with no problem at all - unlike many others, judging by the large number of threads that have popped up over the last day.

    You may like to comment on this particular thread, as it pertains to this problem affecting the Creators Update...

    Same issue for me. tried the solution offered here, the problem still persists. manual updates through Windows Defender do work.
    Below is the MpCmdRun.txt file generated after manually trying to remove all Definitions and reload.
