    This new version is causing major problems on Windows Vista & Windows 7 computers, possibly making the MSE program unusable.

    On the "standalone" Microsoft Security Essentials downloads page, they are still offering
    version 4.8.204.0 and NOT the newer version.

    So remove v4.9.218.0 of MSE and revert back to using v4.8.204.0.
    That's even a better idea ... I would just ignore the update as suggested. If a previously working Windows Update isn't able install an update then just don't try installing an update until more update information is available.

    Well I have hidden the update, but the number of problem reports still seems fairly small for an update released two days ago.

    A question for those who have actually seem this problem: Did you also install the optional KB3118401 (published February 15)?

    I'm running vista 32 bit also and had the same problem. Had to reboot in safe mode and do system restore. After the update and reboot got nothing but black screen after the welcome screen.

    No.

    I remember thinking about installing a Windows 10 Universal CRT, some time ago, not certain if it's the same one. After reading various programming and developer related discussions decided not to, since it's an optional update.

    If a requirement for Microsoft Security Essentials - 4.9.218.0 then it should be listed along with the MSE update, or a notice that's it's prerequisite to be installed prior to MSE 4.9.218.0, which should be provided with a detailed description.

    (KB3118401 description)
    The Windows 10 Universal CRT is a Windows operating system component that enables CRT functionality on the Windows operating system. This update allows Windows desktop applications that depend on the Windows 10 Universal CRT release to run on earlier Windows operating systems.

    During one of my several system restores due to this problem, I twice tried Windows Vista repair tool on the Vista Operating System CD, but the tool reported that it could not find anything to repair.
