    Here are my settings and is worth keeping an eye on for the next several days on ahead.
    Task Scheduler settings:
    Start the Task: On System Startup
    Repeat Task Every 1 hour

    "C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe"
    -Update -hide

    This argument above actually starts the Windows Defender GUI but is always hidden and runs only in the notification area so no windows popup each time.

    Like I posted before, I still get the Windows Defender notify for Download notification. Hopefully with the changed settings above will do the trick or should do the trick.

    The following VBScript does the trick.
    set objShell = createobject("")  
    objShell.Run("""C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe"" ""-SignatureUpdate""") , 0
