I might have found a small glitch in .7.

I removed everything from the install, got it down to about 770 MB, installed wonderfully in VMWare Workstation, installed VMWare Tools after the install, rebooted, ran Windows Update, it wants to download:

Definition Update 1.14.1948.9 for Windows Defender (KB915597)

among other updates, so I install them, reboot, then run Windows Update again, it wants to download that Definition update again. Shouldn't it know that Defender is gone and not even prompt for further Definition updates?

Just to give you a better idea about what's happening, I included some screen shots:

1 -- You click on Windows Update like normal, you click on Check for Updates

2 -- It finds one update, you click on View Available Updates

3 -- Click on Install, you get that 'error'.

While this isn't a showstopping bug by any means, shouldn't Windows Update at least recognize that Defender is no longer installed? Otherwise, Update will continue to indefinitely have that 1 update that won't install.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. :)

Yeah I knew this, some of the alpha testers reported it. It is not dangerous nor the defender is there, it's just a missing reg entry which is tricky to catch. How to tell the Windows update that the Defender isn't there...if someone knows do tell, thx.
And I'll try to see if maaybe something is actually left in the registry.

It is indeed annoying, but I manually perform updates and hide every update of Windows Defender and do not tyry to install it.
