    Windows Defender bug, hotfix today...


    If anyone noticed, in the last Windows Defender was a bug which caused you HDD/SDD filled up with crap files. In the meantime a fix has been released and is being installed silently.

    If you have any version of Engineversion LOWER than 1.1.18100.6 you have this bug. If you have received this update, you are on Engineversion Engineversie: 1.1.18100.6 (Lower than that, you have not received the update yet, like Engineversie: 1.1.18100.5 ie.)

    Thanks RingTailCoon, I had this morning WD not being able to install its definition file. Downloaded but failed to install. In the next few hours everything went back to usual. Probably that was related to this bug.

    Even after resetting WU, this bugger refuses to install

    Edit: Nevermind, installed it from the Windows catalog and all's well
