Likewise, does enabling the "metered connection" setting in Windows 10 stop both types of auto updates?What about the 00Shutup Ten utility and the Winareo Tweaker utility?Do the options in those utilities to stop automatic Win10 OS updates also stop Window Defender updates? If it were me trying to get around this problem, I would just abandon Windows Defender completely and use a 3rd party antivirus/antimalware solution. In my opinion, Windows Defender doesn't catch hardly anything, and I never felt protected using it.From googling around, yes it does appear that disabling Windows Update will prevent Windows Defender from getting updates. By default disabling windows update does disable automatically updating the definitions for Windows Defender, part of why I dislike it since Microsoft wants to force you to keep windows updates on automatic.This particular image didn’t need the customers preferred Anti-virus/Anti-malware software installed.Normally I recommend using something other than Windows Defender. For the home users reading this they have a pretty good and lightweight Free version available.
I’ve finally got everything to play nicely in my lab so I’m sharing a few screenshots.
After researching this a bit I found that Microsoft is using the same KB2267602 for every Windows Defender Definition Update.
The Definition numbers will change but the KB stays the same.
Today we will tell you about our recent experience in fixing the error with updates in Windows 10.
As the user told, right before the error emerged he ran the disk cleanup for his system disk.
