    What version of WD are you using, in Help > About?

    According to the official Microsoft Windows Defender newsgroup, the current version numbers are:

    Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1347.0
    Engine Version: 1.1.1481.0
    Definition Version: 1.14.1525.2

    1.1.1347.0 is the Beta 2 refresh released in April, but some people are still using the Beta 2 first release, so it alerts the users to download the Beta 2 refresh. The automatic update only updates the definitions, not the software itself.
