    Thanks!

    This fits the pattern we're seeing about why some machines update their Defender platform's more frequently and often well in advance of other machines without it.

    For instance under 1909, and when these registry keys were in place for me, I got 3 Platform versions in one month.

    The question remains, what exactly triggers this registry change?

    My current speculation is when a user goes looking enough times for Windows Defender Definition updates, either manually or via a custom task, such that the telemetry behavior is considered by Microsoft, much like with a CU, to be a form of user consent to be a guinea pig that's out looking for trouble, i.e. a Seeker. ;o)

    Always curious about such things, I'm currently writing a scheduled task to check the Key:

    Code:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\MpEngine
    to see when changes take place, hoping this evidence might shed some light on the logic.

    I was on 4.18.2005.5.

    I never got 4.18.2006.6 nor 4.18.2006.9


    I just now received 4.18.2006.10 when I manually ran my task:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\platform\4.18.2006.10-0\MpCmdRun.exe -signatureUpdate


    After my clean install of 2004 my MpEngine registry key still has no sub-keys:

    Code:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\MpEngine
    @Warre1 I'd be curious to see if you have under yours these three sub-keys that have been tied to those machines getting these interim Platform updates like 4.18.2006.6 and 4.18.2006.9 :

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\MpEngine
        MpCampGradualRelease    REG_DWORD    0x1
        MpCampRing      REG_DWORD    0x3
        MpEngineRing    REG_DWORD    0x3
