    Windows Update problem

    As of this morning I have Windows update downloading for Windows Defender which I have not installed, interesting it says if it is installed it cannot be removed. I hid the update and it just keeps coming back. Any ideas.

    If you are running another virus product then Windows Defender should be turned off. Doing this will stop the updates. See here:

    Well it's interesting, I also had 5 optional and when I hid them along with the Defender everything went back to normal. Thanks for link but Windows Defender was not turned on that's why the whole thing was weird.
