    I am having difficulties getting Security Essentials to download the
    (apparently) enormous signature file. It never finishes downloading over my
    dialup connection before the MS server times out. Is there a way to
    download the sig file another way?

    You can, make sure you understand what you need and how to...

    Which definitions do I need, 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Install the latest Microsoft Security Essentials definition updates

    Malware Protection Center - Get the latest definitions

    More help?

    Hope this answers your question.
