    Make Windows Defender Intelligence updates exceptions to Updates Pause


    There's nothing I can do about the need for Defender updates, while I *can* control general updates by pausing for 7 days (repeatedly) until I've read about the safety and bugginess of those updates. I have Windows Updates paused, so I get the requests to permit Defender Intelligence updates almost daily. Can I make Defender the exception, so that Defender updates are automatic, while Feature updates are paused? (20H2)

    Hi you can apply updates manually,
    How to Update Security Definitions for Microsoft Defender Antivirus

    and I think I've seen it stated as to how to schedule this, but can't immediately find a tutorial specifically on that, so try e.g.
