Have you tried going to Windows Update and getting them manually?

That might give us an idea what is happening.

Are you updating MSE from the tray icon?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It is quite possible the update link for MSE has been corrupted and you may have to try a repair.

or if that fails try uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version.

Personally I would uninstall it and use Avast Free, but thats my preference.
