    Gosh, UVK is again another tool that I had never heard of before. A cursory look seemed to indicate that it might have a moderate learning curve. Does UVK replace something like what I get from real time protection using say Bitdefender which has been my app of choice the last few years.
    No it doesn't. It's just a utility that combines multiple repair scripts and tools along with tweaks into one application. It does offer some built in Third Party malware scanners but the only extra real time protection you can get is by enabling "Execute Prevent" which would require some configuration so it's probably wise to avoid using "Execute Prevent" unless you know what to allow.

    it has had no security updates or any updates for that matter for about a year now.
    Has Windows Defender been updated in this year?

    1709 Pro and Home will not install anything newer than KB4493441, the last CU before they reached end of service on 9 April.2019.
    actually Bree, the last update that can be installed under 1709 Home/Pro is KB4493440 released late April 2019 (build 16299.1127)

    The KB4499179 and later cumulative updates for 1709 will only install on Education/Enterprise editions of 1709 (and may fail to install with error message "we couldn't complete the updates, undoing changes" on 1709 Home/Pro) as I've tested them myself. 1709 support for enterprise & education editions end in April 2020. Microsoft put in "hidden checks" in the servicing stack and cumulative updates from May 2019 & beyond to only install on "supported editions" and since the Home & Pro editions of 1709 went out of support in April 2019, any cumulative updates like KB4499179 and greater will only install successfully on the higher editions like Enterprise & Education.
