    How to stop Updates of Windows Defender Definition


    I have disabled Window Defender, but the Updates of Windows Defender Definition are still downloaded and installed.

    How do I stop it?

    I tried to use the Show or Hide updates to hide the Update of Windows Defender Definition, but it did not appear there.

    Try this: Turn on WD, then Turn it off, then download this bat and run it as admin ASAP, restart.
