    Clean install> Win10 1607

    I set my wireless connection as metered and double checked with netsh (cost=fixed)

    Windows Update (WU) finds Defender definition updates, but seems to hang downloading 0%
    There is no message re: metered ... will download later ...
    edit: The offered update flashes very quickly, then proceeds to download - it might only seem to be downloading.

    If I manually update the definitions in Defender, the WU window claims that other updates are in progress and the [ Retry ] button replaces the [ Check for updates ] button.When I press [ Retry ] the download progress increases.

    Once Defender defs are up-to-date, a subsequent Check for updates returns System is up-to-date as expected.

    It's a bit frustrating because WU does not identify the update and neither WU history or installed updates show Defender definitions.

    PowerShell Get-WindowsUpdateLog doesn't show me anything related to Defender defs either (probably because WU didn't update the defs)

    I'm sure this is a minor bug in 1607 and I'll feed MS the information.
    I was wondering if any other member is seeing this behavior.

    There is no Properties to be able to select only Forget so must be missing a step.

    Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586 64 bit after reverting from anniversary edition as to many problems with it may even go back to W7.

    Peter,

    Ah, ok. That would be why then. The settings for this are different in that older build.

    Yes, I had exactly the same behaviour. Being on a capped download I relied on setting Metered Connection to avoid going over my monthly limit. Seems MS have fixed this now. Since installing 'Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3176934)' and 'Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3176936)' the original behaviour of Windows Update on a Metered Connection has been restored, all waiting updates are listed again and the 'Download' button has returned.
