Checking from inside Windows Defender at Help | Check for updates didn't find any new definitions either, so I'll post back after I've done some more testing.
    Hello Imacri,

    Both of my Vista machines updated today with Defender definition version:

    No other updates were available as of 11:15 am (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time

    Good news. I ran Windows Update today and received the latest Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition so last week's glitch that Vista1972 described in post # 619 doesn't seem to have done any permanent damage to Windows Update on my Vista SP2 machine.

    Just an FYI that Volume Z has already updated his download links on page 1 of peggybeggs' thread why has vista stopped automatic updates? for today's December 2017 Patch Tuesday updates. There were no new "speed up" patches released this month for my MS Office Compatibility Pack SP3 but there were patches released for Word 2007 and Word 2010 that will have to be pre-installed before running Windows Update if you were fully updated as of 11-Apr-2017 and have these MS Office products installed on your Vista SP2 machine.
