I switched to Microsoft Security Essentials all seems well with the exception of it does not up date automatically, I am set to automatic and I am getting the regular updates. Any clue why MSE is not updating like it is suppose to?

What do you mean when you say it does not automatically update? Are you saying when you manually update MSE it still updates? If that's what you mean then the reason IIRC is that updates are released several times a day but the automatic update only updates once per day.

Two of my computer update automatically, but my main machine needs to be done manually. But as I said the usual automatic updates work just fine, I have found the main machine behind by two days. For now I do it manually each time I boot up.
