    Found a way to update defender manually while Updates paused

    Win 10 Pro 1703- I have paused updates, but I still want to have Defender updates installed.
    -When paused is on, the system does not check for updates at least not immediately from what I can see.
    -So now while updates are paused I go to..............
    -Start2-Windows Update3-Go to Windows Defender
    -Open Windows Defender Security Centre
    -Go to Virus & threat protection
    -Go to Protection Updates
    -Chose "Check for Updates
    -Now one can see from Task Manager/Performance/Ethernet it does check flowing of data.
