    Can I disable only the "Update virus protection" notifications?

    I have a Windows 10 VM and if it's not connected for more than a day there is a notification to update virus protection. It's getting a little annoying. The solutions I have found by searching suggest disabling virus notifications entirely but I don't want to do that. All I want to do is disable these notifications that say Windows anti-virus is out of date. Is that possible?

    Is anyone else running a Windows 10 in a VM and how do you deal with this?

    Hi there.

    If its not connected for very long I assume its just to "mess around" with. In which case you can do anything you like in it! I have two machines. A stable gaming/work computer and an older machine with insider builds on it to mess around with.
