Specs: Windows Vista
Windows defender won't update. It's constantly telling me it's out of date but when i run the automatic update programme it say "no new updates are available" yet the exclaimation mark remains on the defender icon. No matter what way i try to update this is the result. Please help!

Hi, thanks for responding! I have avg free antivirus installed. I've had this pretty much since i got the laptop and it doesn't seem to have clashed with defender although defender has sometimes insisted it's turned of when it isn't! It's always accepted it is turned on though after a few attempts to persuade it!
Thanks, Tom
