Windows 10: Defender updates

    Defender updates


    Does anyone find the updates through Windows update slow? If I do a manual check for updates in here and it finds a new definition I notice it downloads in a flash but often takes about thirty seconds on preparing to install. Seems to be the case on both our machines. Just baffled how such a small download update for definitions would be so slow.

    I find it normal. Other 3rd party antivirus does do the same thing.
