Auto Defender Updates without other Windows Updates?


H

Howard

I do not like having Windows Auto-Update on because it frequently wants to
install things that I just do not want on my computer.

Defender wants to update my machine every friggin day, and it is a pain in
the butt.

Is there a way to leave Defender auto-updates turned on while setting other
Windows updates to ask me first?

Hello Howard,

What operating system and seÑvice pack are you currently using?

Could you supply some information on what your, firewall is, the name of the
installed antivirus|security suite software, other Real Time Protection
programs, etc?

<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555375>

I would have provided that info if I thought it was relevant to the
question. The question was only if there is a way to turn Defender updates
on while keeping all other Window updates off.

I am on XP (SP2), no software firewall (other than the router), no
anti-virus or security suite software, no other real-time protection.

This was a legitimate inquiry; Your (thoughtless) smart-arse comment won't
get you anywhere.

Google can be your friend.

Uninstall WinDef as well and be done with it!

Howard, let me add to Kayman's good advice, the best way to search is using
Googlegroups Advanced newsgroup search at
<http://groups.google.com/advanced_search?q=&> ;

I don't know if this can in some way apply in your case, Doesn't hurt to try
SAS, MBAM and going to the Portal, the links are here
