    Scheduling Windows Defender updates with task scheduler not working.

    I've followed instructions for setting up Windows Defender updates with task scheduler but it's not working. Windows defender opens up at the scheduled times but just does nothing. Guides I followed:

    Has anyone got this working for them? I've set my ethernet connection to metered in the registry.
