    Task to auto update windows defender definitions disappears

    My mom has a new laptop with windows 8.1, we always set the windows updates to manual.
    On our other windows 8.1 computers I have created a task for auto updating windows defender definitions, which works fine for us.

    This is how I created this task:

    "Click on "Create Task", name it what you like (mine is Daily Signature Update), set the trigger as the time you want it to run every day.

    For Action browse to Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe and select it. In "Add arguments" add -SignatureUpdate -MMPC"

    But somehow this task disappears once it has run on my mom's laptop.
    I'm logged in as admin and then I also tried it with running the task scheduler as admin, the task just disappears every day for some reason, while it works fine on our other windows 8.1 computers.

    Anyone an idea why this task disappears every time?

    Thanks.
