Error 80070714 when trying to update windows defenders definitions

This stops your security essentials from updating and then cause's it to stop altogether leaving your computer unprotected.

When you try to update you will receive this Error message (Error 80070714) or it will refuse to update as mine did because your computer recognizes the update as a virus.

This is a common problem but don't worry it is repairable, it is caused by a corrupted file being downloaded through Windows Update, not sure what Microsoft is doing about this as it is caused by there update software, but it is easily repaired by restoring your computer to a date before your last update.

It can also be caused by government systems hackers, shutting down your computer protection so be aware, your PC is not private as long as your online.
