    How to stop daily security definition daily downloads?


    Never had an problem with windows security daily definition until I installed 1809. I still don't as long as they're space out. It when more then one is being applied when computer is turn on that problems occur. Paid the extortion fee of $99 for Windows 10 Pro and set feature to 365 delay and quality to 30 but these have no effect on these daily updates. Set protection off but these have no effect on these daily downloads. Couldn't find anything on the web. Would paying for an upgrade to Enterprise give me the ability to stop these daily downloads?

    :)

  2. Microsoft Security Essentials updating daily...

    I'm just wondering why Security Essentials is updating daily, sometimes twice a day. For the past two weeks there has been definition updates every single day, sometimes twice in a day. Why? It has never done this before. Has anyone else noticed this and
    if so do you know the reason? Its just very odd.

    Incessant, Thrice Daily Security Updates

    The Windows Defender definitions come about twice daily but they do not require a restart.

    Usually on the second Tuesday of the month there is security update that may or may not require a restart depending on how major the update is. This is called Patch Tuesday. This is the day that you usually get the Continuous update.

    Feature updates are the ones usually require a restart. These are the one that change the Version number and happen about every 6 months, March and September.
