Windows Defender in Vista says "there is no definition update available" when checking. The latest definition I've installed is 1.269.1075.0. Is it not supported anymore?

 

EDIT: There is a newer definition update 1.269.1752.0 for Vista as well. Why couldn't Vista detect it when checking for updates?

Thanks. But that's another discussion. By the way I already have an antivirus running well (Panda Dome).

I don't need it. I just wonder why it doesn't find and install new definition updates. There was no problem ten days ago.

 

Say, maybe I am interested in such technical details / problems. :)
