    Thank you so much.
    It's working as intended, I can finally have windows store experience without forced update things. :)

    If you don't use Windows Defender there's scripts to disable it, personally i'm using this one so if i want to enable it again i can undo it

    Code:
    rem echo To disable Windows Defender Security Center include this
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SecurityHealthService" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f
    
    echo 0 - Disable Real-time protection
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender" /v "DisableAntiSpyware" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender" /v "DisableAntiVirus" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\MpEngine" /v "MpEnablePus" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection" /v "DisableBehaviorMonitoring" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection" /v "DisableIOAVProtection" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Reporting" /v "DisableEnhancedNotifications" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\SpyNet" /v "SubmitSamplesConsent" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    
    echo Disable WD Tasks

    reg delete "HKCR\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\EPP" /f
    reg delete "HKCR\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\EPP" /f

    Is there any reason behind? I mean, I want to get updates automatically to keep my WD or AV up to date.

    My internet connection is not great :( (It makes higher ping in games etc.) I always install definition updates when I got free time but I don't want to install it by forced.

    Hey @BALTAGY , can you remove (or change to only "MicrosoftUpdateServer") this regedit entry in stopwinupdates? I got automatic defender updates because of this.
    Code:
    Registry Key      : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Signature Updates
    Change Type       : Removed Value
    Value Name        : FallbackOrder
    Value Data        : InternalDefinitionUpdateServer | MicrosoftUpdateServer | MMPC
    Value Type        : REG_SZ

    For me i want Auto Defender updates to work, people using another antivirus can disable defender via shared scripts

    Also in your case you can do it manually since it's a rare case

    Can you add as option like Enable/Disable automatic defender definition update? Just wondering, it's not so important for me at least I found solution :)
    Do you know another option to disable automatic definition update?

    I have been using "stopwinupdates" since it appeared. afaict it has stopped Defender updates also. I used to get messages in the taskbar, that my definitions are outdated, but disabled those. I use Defender manually once a week (as I do Emsisoft) and when I do, I download the new definitions.

    Am I wrong to trust that updating defender definitions will ONLY update definitions?
    Am I wrong to assume "stopwinupdates" has disabled defender updates?

    Thanks

    There's an option to check update Windows Defender (Windows Security) definitions every 6 hours for who using it

    I added this option when i got reports that auto update Windows Defender (Windows Security) definitions not working

    Added also a full changelog in first post since v1.3 since v1 to v1.2 been in testing and many things got fixed/update and can't remember all of it

    Not sure about that since i never used it, but it should be only definitions

    Am I wrong to assume "stopwinupdates" has disabled defender updates?
    From reporting i received the auto update don't work, that's why i added check update Windows Defender (Windows Security) definitions every 6 hours
