Forefront endpoint protection client not updating
Antivirus companies don't care that they block their own customers that want to recover their own passwords, and they don't care that they may cause their customer to think that I'm a Virus distributer.I must say that some Antivirus companies are a little more gentle, and classify these tools as "Security Threat" or "Riskware" which is much better than classifying them as Virus or Trojan, but they still prevent the user from running them - by deleting them or by putting them in quarantine.If, at any time, Microsoft Forefront Client Security does not update automatically, you will need to update it manually.You will know that it is not updating when you see an amber symbol with an exclamation mark on the bottom right hand corner of your screen.Double-click the Default Antimalware Policy (or create a new policy and assign it to a collection) and select the “Definition Updates” option and configure it to allow clients to download “Updates distributed from WSUS.” To prevent clients from going to the Configuration Manager server, uncheck the “Updates distributed from Configuration Manager.” Create an Automatic Deployment Rule 2. Choose you package source location, evaluation schedule, etc. If you would rather not publish all software updates, you can simply select the Software Deployment Package Explorer tab (in the same perspective), right-click on the update you want to publish and select “Publish as adaptiva content” in the dropdown menu.

Adaptiva One Site ends the complexity of IT by creating a simple, easy to use workflow that just makes sense.
As you know, Adaptiva One Site makes managing software updates easy. These should be the same for pretty much any version as far as I know, but I’m looking specifically at System Centre Endpoint Protection (SCEP) included as part of Config Manager 2012.Recently I noticed that my Windows 8.1 clients were not getting updates from WSUS 3.2.Unfortunately, most Antivirus companies goes too far with their Virus/Trojan protection, and in many times they classify completely legit software as Virus/Trojan infection.
One good example for that is my own password recovery tools: Most people need these tools to recover their own lost password.
Nothing in the update logs that I can see to shed any light onto the cause.
