    Updating weirdness

    I have 4 Windows 10 rigs at the house, three of them came with Windows 10, they are no problem. The fourth rig is the one that I upgraded in place from Win7. For the longest time Windows Defender would not work, so I went third party. Then something happened with a recent update and Defender was back in the house so I dumped the third party. Defender updated the database almost daily even though it was not in use during its non working status.

    The problem is the fourth rig, it still updates Defender almost daily, while the other rigs don't, just occasionally.

    At least Defender started working again...

    You say fourth rig is a problem.

    Think the other three are the problem. If you view installed updates on those machines and look down for heading "Definition updates" I'm pretty sure you should see an update for every day machine was on. For sure if fourth rig updated Security Intelligence update then the other machines were eligible for update. (if powered on.)

    Are you running any third party AV's on them, any privacy tools or update blockers?
