Disable Windows 10 Defender Updates

How do I kill MS Windows 10 Defender Updates?  It always shows up in the Windows Update process with a Retry that fails on execution.  So Norton Security has put Defender to sleep except for the continuous updates.  WUSHOWHID only works for one update cycle.  I don't need any uninstall, reinstall solutions.



Re: Disable Windows 10 Defender Updates

You might not like the solution but what worked for me and others is to uninstall Norton, update Windows Defender, manually disable Windows Defender, then reinstall Norton.  You can choose to Save Setting while uninstalling and if you download from http://manage.norton.com you will get a pre-activated copy of your Norton product.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.
