How To Manually Update Windows Defender Offline On Your Windows PC

Windows Defender offered by Windows 10 is undoubtedly one of the best antivirus programs that I have used over the years. The program is extremely lightweight and doesn’t eat up a lot of memory. It works just fine if you keep updating it regularly and the best thing is that it’s absolutely free.

Windows Defender not only protects your system from viruses and malware, but also provides real-time protection. Windows Defender was introduced in Windows 8 as a toned-down version of the Microsoft Security Essentials. It comes pre-installed with your Windows 10 and even updates itself automatically by default if your system is connected to the internet.
