    Anyone know for how much longer Microsoft plan to keep releasing Windows defender definition updates on vista? Can't find it on the Microsoft website.

    Thanks

    Forever, it uses the same Definitions as Windows Defender on Windows 10, you need to download an .exe from microsoft to update the definitions

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/defenderupdates

    Go to the page and down, in Windows 7/Vista select your OS architecture, the download will start and you need to open the .exe, its going to installa automatically with no user interface or window, your definitions should be up to date after doing that, if not, open the .exe as administrator, do this twice a week to keep up to date
