    Just to confirm, by natively in Windows defender, that means by using powershell commands which will work even with the metered connection? Like task scheduler does?
    Yeap!
    I have set mine to update the signatures three times a day... by using the PS command:
    Code:
    Set-MpPreference -SignatureScheduleDay 0
    Set-MpPreference -SignatureUpdateInterval 8

    Keep it metered and if you want to set the update frequency of Windows Defender, in case it's your main AV, refer to that

    Windows Defender definitions update frequency Solved - Windows 10 Forums
    Thanks for this reference. I was always wondering how to install WD definition updates since it is not advised to check for Updates in Windows Updates' panel. I don't have any A-V; I use WD.

    Set-MpPreference -SignatureUpdateInterval 8
    I see. I used two commands first this:

    Code:
    Set-MpPreference -SignatureScheduleDay 0
    For daily

    and then:

    Code:
     Set-MpPreference -SignatureUpdateInterval 12
    For every 12 hours/twice a day. I assume that is correct.

    When i asked you about if natively means powershell, I then read right on top of the tutorial page it states:

    "You can set the frequency Windows Defender updates its definitions, natively in Windows Defender."

    Duh!

    Thanks again.

    It doesn't seem to be working for me. It hasn't installed any new updates since I did it. Maybe I'll just set a task schedule for it. I found my old settings written down. Added: I added a couple of tasks so it will do twice a day. I like that I can set exact time with TS so this is fine too.

    If you upgarded to 1809, then rolled back to 1803, are you now blocked from getting 1809 via Windows update? Anybody know the answer to that?
    17134.407 here and Windows update says I am all up to date. I upgraded to 1809 when it was first released, then rolled back to 1803 due to usability issues. That was before they pulled the update due to the undiscovered bugs.
    Windows 10 Enterprise 1803.
    The above PC I rolled back on has just upgraded to 1809 all on its own. Started in the background without me doing anything while I was using it. Windows 10 Enterprise, OS Build is now 17763.292.
    Had to go and hunt up my NVidia graphics drivers and do a manual install. Doing the upgrade from device manager got me a missing inf line message. Usually they just upgarde on thier own if I wait long enough.
    I was wanting my three monitors back and tried to speed things up. Everything seems to be OK this time around though.

    Because it is well stated in all articles regarding this issue over the web that when one does (check for updates), MS considers that user as a "seeker" or a "Beta tester". Consequently, one could end up having a preview release downloaded to one's computer when in fact that is not what one was looking for.

    I've read that thing about a "seeker" or a signal of acceptance, but as many times as I have pressed that button, I've never have received a "Preview Release" thru windows update, only when I signed up to be an insider would I receive one.

    Thanks for the response, I thought maybe there was another reason.
