hi, To first start off im not sure if im in the right forum but if im not, sorry. Well i got a little minor problem with my windows update, in the bottom right corner i have something telling me that updates for microsoft defender are ready to be installed. I download these updates and they successfully install, but after 5 seconds it pop ups again telling me that theres update ready for my comp. Ive installed them about 20 times and it just re pops up. So im asking you all for help to see what the problem is.

thanks in advance.

Click start then control panel, security centre, click change the way security centre alerts me, remove the tick from automatic updates, click OK. Click automatic updates, put the dot in turn off automatic updates, click OK

Visit Microsoft Update, late evening, each 2nd Tuesday of the month
