    RE: Error 80070714 when trying to update windows defenders definit

    I appear to have possibly discovered a solution......try this........

    If you receive Windows Update error 80070643 while installing updates for
    Microsoft Office 2003, you might need to restart the Office Source Engine
    (OSE) service. Windows Update can automatically start the service to install
    updates for Office products if the service is set to the default Manual
    setting. If the service is disabled, you need to restart it, and then try to
    install the latest updates for Office products again.

    To restart the Office Source Engine (OSE) service
    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

    1. Open Administrative Tools by clicking the Start button , clicking
    Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking
    Administrative Tools.

    2. Double-click Services. If you are prompted for an administrator
    password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    3. If the Office Source Engine service is disabled (or not running),
    double-click it to open the service properties.

    4. Click the Startup type list, click Automatic (Delayed Start), and then
    click Apply.

    5. Under Service status, click Start.

    6. Restart your machine.

    7. Run Windows Update again (unless it's set to automatically install
    updates).

    Hope this helps.

    on the first post, where the whole log is posted, it says after the error code "reboot required" Sometimes after you install one update, the computer requires a reboot, and won't install other updates until you do. Usually it reboots itself when it needs it, but not always. Did you try rebooting it?

    On what first post? It's standard protocol to quote all or at least a
    portion of the message to which you reply so there is some context.

    why not do as you so often suggest, do a google search for the chain of events.

    Same issue here. I too am running Spyware Doctor by the way. What I did was to create a partition and install a fresh vista on it. Then ran all the updates on the new Vista installation. Then booted back into the installation where I had the error and killed Windows Defender Service and Exited Defender all together. Next I copied the Windows Defender folder from the New Vista partition to my program files directory (I renamed the existing one in case it didn't work). Started the Defender Service again and opened Defender. Ran update again and all was good.
