The last few days, when I download MSE def updates, it's been putting 2 duplicate icons on the desktop (see attached screenshot). The left one is not functional. This is where I get the defs:

Is there any way to get it back to doing just one?

Very odd.

 

I just downloaded the 64Bit version without issue.  I can't explain what's going on with yours.
