    MSE update options are pretty sparse, I wanted my MSE to update at every startup and while looking around I found this.

    Code:
    ping -n 11 127.0.0.1 >NUL
    cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials
    start /min MpCmdRun.exe -scan -scantype 1
    
    Just make a batch file and put a shortcut in your start-up folder. The ping command is to force a delay of ten seconds (to allow internet connection to be established for wifi users) Remove it if you so choose but if you have update problem after removing it put it back.

    When you start-up you will see a dos box popup then minimize and after about 30 seconds it will disappear.

    There is an MSE update utility but I had problems with it working only sporadically.

    I think it should be more like this:

    Code:
    @echo off
    ping -n 20 127.0.0.1 >NUL
    cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials
    start /min MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate

    That will work also. One thing I forgot is to check the box by update before scan on the settings> Scheduled scans tab. @echo off isn't needed if you use start /min

    The biggest difference is that MpCmdRun.exe -scan -scantype 1 command is supposed to do an update then a quick scan. the -signatureupdate switch just updates the definitions but it minimizes faster and terminates immediately after updating. So, you can choose to to a quick update or an update and a scan, just change the scan type if you want to do a more in-depth scan.

    If you called your cmd file say mse.cmd and then made a 7zip exe installer using this switch:-

    ;!@Install@!UTF-8!
    GUIMode="2"
    RunProgram="hidcon:mse.cmd"
    ;!@InstallEnd@!

    and make a shortcut to your startup folder from the exe you made, then the command would be ran at every startup silently without any 30 second black dos box.

    You could just make it into a shortcut, no need for a batch file:
    Code:
    cmd.exe /C title MPE Update&"%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Security Essentials\MpCmdRun.exe" -SignatureUpdate&echo Done.&pause
