    How can I download Windows Defender Update manually?


    Hi,

    I am new here.
    I need some guidance/link.
    Windows 10.1 is installed on my pd/desktop. The internet is working through networking and proxy. Microsoft official website is blocked. Due to this, I am unable to update my windows defender (antivirus).

    I need to ask whether:
    1. Is there anyway to use microsoft website? I have tried through proxy websites, but in vain..
    2. Is there any other site, through which I can download the antivirus updates mannually, then can run /update the same?

    Regards.

    Ijaz.

    Hi ljaz Lodhi

    Are all sites with the word Microsoft in them blocked?

    Are other AV sites allowed, like Avast?

    So You're Not able to install Critical Security Updates that address Zero Day Exploits ? Doesn't sound very safe to be using the PC online.
