So I am using Microsoft security essentials for a while now.
Now there was some error in the auto update, and I don’t know how to perform a manual update.
Step 1: Open the Windows Store App You can find the Windows Store at your desktop widget or at bottom in the Taskbar.
It looks like a small shopping bag Icon with the Windows logo on it.
Step 2: Finding the apps on Windows Store You can find the Microsoft Security Essentials (32-bit) in Windows store using search box in the top right. Download this app from official websites at no cost by this Portal Website.
Please read the entire post & the comments first, create a System Restore Point before making any changes to your system & be careful about any 3rd-party offers while installing freeware.
My Microsoft Security Essentials Update does not automaticlly update.
