Error code 0x8004ff01 while updating Microsoft Security Essentials
Hi, I keep getting this error when I try to update to the newest version of MSE. I found a previous thread on here with a possible solution:
Or maybe I'm just not understanding what that step is telling me to do.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Re: Error code 0x8004ff01 while updating Microsoft Security Essentials
I will give you another method here to update your microsoft security essentials. First try to uninstall the current MSE build and reinstall from the official MSE download page. If that fails removing MSE then try the below method:
1. Download the MSE installer for your Operating System from the Home Page: http://microsoft.com/security_essentials
2. Save the file to your Desktop. This will ensure that you can find it easily after the download is done.
3. Now press the Windows Key and R all at the same time. This will open the RUN dialog box.
4. Make sure that you delete any entries inside RUN. Now drag the MSE installer into the RUN dialog box.
5. Depending on your Operating System, after dragging the file into RUN it should appear as any of the three below:
"C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe"
6. Now put a space in between the whole line and put /U as seen below:
"C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe" /U
C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-vista-win7 /U
C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-amd64fre-en-us-vista-win7.exe /U
7. Hit OK.
