    I cannot open some emails that have an attachment, as it flashes up saying the attachment has a virus. This cannot be every time surely. There is a red shield emblem with it. Can anyone come up with what the problem is or how I can rectify it.

    I tried to do the Definition Update for Windows Defender – KB915597 (Definition 1.159.2215.0)

    Installation date: ‎10/‎16/‎2013 2:33 PM

    Installation status: Failed

    Error details: Code 800705B4

    Update type: Important

    Install this update to revise the definition files used to detect spyware and other potentially unwanted software. Once you have installed this item, it cannot be removed.

    ***  BUT it failed and NOW it does not show up as an UPDATE to be INSTALLED! ALL I get is that I HAVE NO New UPDATES that need to be INSTALLED!  I Checked the DOWN LOAD HISTORY and this one Does not appear to have been SUCCESSFULLY DOWNLOADED!  Just the above Failed attempt! SO, I guess I can't get it to try to down load again!
