Re: Update KB915597
People, stop freaking out. KB915597 is the standard Update for Windows
Defender file definitions, of course you need to update these every day! It's
exactly the same thing when Norton updates it's anti-virus definitions on a
daily basis.

This particular update always has a serial number in parenthesis
(1.37.1234.1 or some such) if you take note of this serial number, this
counter increases changing every day when you install the next update, I
refer you guys to:

Yes, we know, but it's still installing the same update over and over again.
On my machine it literally completes and about 10 seconds later starts
again, with the same definition file version number. A bit of an infinite
loop unless you disable auto update.

That's a symptom that there's something blocking the update,
e.g. malware or overly aggressive security programs.
Try doing the install using safe mode. Note: if you don't have
the update already downloaded first and have to choose safe mode
with networking make sure that you at least enable the Windows firewall
first because safe mode can disable a software firewall, if that is what
you are relying on normally.


Good luck
