In both cases, the MSE and MWD anti-virus software does not auto update. I have to manually initiate updates. I haven't been able to find a setting in either MSE or MWD to turn auto updates on. Is there a way?

My MSE in Win7 stays up to date (at least the definitions) automatically. My definitions were updated today, and the last time I allowed Microsoft Update to install updates was a week ago, so MSE definitions are updating independently from the regular Microsoft Updates.
