MS Security Essentials Automated Definition Updates

MS Security Essentials (MSE) is a good, free option if you need an antivirus package on a modality or workstation that isn't managed by your corporate AV policies.  Automated definition updates can be problematic for a variety of reasons (like proxy servers) so I wrote a script this weekend to automate downloading and installing the definition files for MS Security Essentials.  It auto-detects 32/64bit Windows and the version of MSE so that the correct updates are applied.  It's free for all here and I included the AutoIt script code I wrote it in so you can modify it to your heart's content.
