    Windows Defender updates typically at least once a day, sometimes more often.. so this can happen more than once.

    The kb2267602 is always the same, the versions are different.

    OK. We could try:
    1. go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete everything in this folder. Those are updates files from Windows Updates and safe to delete. Just don't delete while Windows Updates is running
    2. From Start Screen, type: cleanmgr and run it. Select C drive then click on Clean Up System Files
    3. From the list, put a check mark on everything except Setup Log File then click OK
