Microsoft Update only updates Windows Defender
iacrosoft Update only updates Windows Defender - I have to use Belarc Advisor
to get a list of missing updates, and then go to the Microsoft Download
Center to search for the missing updates and download and install them one at
a time.
I have Windows XP Home SP3, with Microsoft Update set to automatic download
- can anyone tell me why I do not get all the necessary upadtes?

Re: Microsoft Update only updates Windows Defender
Is this a sudden, new problem? When was Automatic Updates last working?
Can you update manually via http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com?

Any chance you've got a beta build of WinXP SP3 installed?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

How to troubleshoot Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server

3a. Check your WindowsUpdate.log (%windir%\WindowsUpdate.log) for errors
