Hi, you can download updated definitions for essentials manually from Microsoft. Please check before download updated definitions pack your system configurations, such as Windows version. Download offline updating files by click on below links:

Click here for Windows 32 (x86) bit definitions.

Click here for 64- bit Windows version.

After downloading go to file location where you choose download path then right click on file, select run as administrator, wait for few seconds open Microsoft Security Essentials there you can see update status under Update tab.

Fortunately, there is a way to update Microsoft Security Essentials offline or manually instead of the usual online update. When updating Microsoft Security Essentials manually, you are simply downloading the latest virus and spyware definition update file from Microsoft and then installing the updates on your computer. This will update the virus signature database used by Microsoft Security Essentials.

The offline update is available only for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. If you have any of these operating systems, you need to verify the platform architecture of your operating system whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit. You can verify this by right-clicking “My Computer” and selecting “Properties”. In “General” tab, you should see something like “64-bit” if you are using 64-bit Microsoft Windows.

But if you don’t see it, that means you are using 32-bit Microsoft Windows. Now, to download the latest virus and spyware definition updates, download one of the following according to your operating system architecture:

Once downloaded, run the file to update Microsoft Security Essentials.
