    Windows defender update


    Hello!
    there's an update related to Windows Defender appears on Windows Update. For me, I'm using Avast Internet Security and Anti-Malwarebytes with Windows Defender Disabled.
    is it necessary to update Windows Defender even if I'm not using it?

    What is the KB number of the Windows Update to patch the Windows Defender? From there, we will know if this is necessary or unnecessary. It is highly recommended to patch programs as soon as a problem is found despite not using the program.

    I hide them all, but the one that belong to Windows Defender keeps appearing again!
    I tried to install it, but I get this error : 80070005.

    80070005 is a generic error code that is most likely linked to a permission problem or access denied.


    1. Run this fixit from Microsoft to diagnose and repair file and folder problems.
    2. Use the system file checker of Windows by running "sfc /scannow" in an elevated command prompt to fix any issues with the operating system components.
    3. Try to install the KB2267602 again.


    Or follow the solution here: Windows Defender KB2267602 update fails > it provided a different error code but worth a try.

    for "sfc /scannow" I ran it before and it found nothing wrong. I also ran Windows Update Troubleshooter and fixed three different errors, but in vain.
    I'll try your solutions 'cipals15'
