    I wish Microsoft would post change logs, I wonder what new things will be in this engine?

    101% agree. It is quite annoying they never give changelogs.

    And if they do it are useless changelogs like:
    - several stability improvements
    - several performance improvements.

    The do engine updates every month or two. I guess this one is just a little more important to be mentioned, they usually aren't mentioned at all.

    Well, it's still the 15th where I am (U.S), and, if it's anything like MSE's virus updates, it'll happen in the middle of the night, at least in my experience. Or, it could have been pushed back a bit for more tweaking. Who knows with Microsoft.

    What update problem? It's a malware engine update not a Program Update.

    I still think this thread is a little over-hyped. These engine updates are reasonably regular, and though they do offer improvements in detection, improvements in speed and such are questionable, not that I bother with before/after testing.

    If you have visited the MSE forums lately, there have been many reports where the first update(manual/automatic/scheduled) after a cold boot/restart did not complete. Upon a second attempt though the update would finish fine. The problem would come up again after a restart/cold boot. I can vouch for this as I myself experienced this issue multiple times. And I am also happy to report that this is no longer a problem after the new update.
