Is there a way to write a batch file to automatically update Microsoft security essentials for Windows 7?
If so, could you please help me write it?
You only need 1 command:
Create a shortcut to your desktop or you can also create a scheduled task to update the signatures.
Microsoft Security Essentials includes a command-line utility which can be used to update the virus/malware definitions. The utility is named MpCmdRun.exe. You can use the following script for updating:
And schedule that batch file to run automatically using Task Scheduler.
If you don't turn off Automatic Windows Update, the Microsoft Security Essential will get automatically updated.
