MSE Update Utility

Microsoft Security Essentials is a relatively new anti-virus and anti-malware program from Microsoft that is lightweight and absolutely free as long as you are running a genuine copy of Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 on your computers.

Microsoft Security Essentials downloads the new virus definition updates through Windows Update but many people turn that off. Doing so, you will be needing to update your Microsoft Security Essentials virus definitions in another way. Here is how: use MSE Update Utility, an application which automatically updates Microsoft Security Essentials even if you have Windows Update turned off.

You can choose to either always run MSE Update Utility in the baground so it automatically downloads new virus definitions when updates are available, or manually run it whenever you want.
