I am using windows 8 in my office.I have disabled windows updates and because of that defender dosent updates itself.but sometimes it does.


i searched and found i can create a task in task scheduler using this option


MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate -MMPC


But the problem in this is that it popups the command prompt when it starts.I want that it runs in hidden so that users in my office dosent sees whats happening.


how can i do it so?


thanks

You can create a VBS file and schedule that instead and use the , 0 parameter to make the update window hidden


set objShell = createobject("wscript.shell")
objShell.Run("""C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe"" ""-SignatureUpdate""") , 0

i can create a task in task scheduler using this option
MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate -MMPC
But the problem in this is that it popups the command prompt when it starts
Run the scheduled task not with normal user rights but with "SYSTEM" rights instead. Then the command prompt windows doesn't appear.

On "General" tab of scheduled task choose:
"When running the task, use the following user account" -> "SYSTEM"

I want that it runs in hidden so that users in my office dosent sees whats happening.
When you want to use it on other PCs in your office: You also can export the scheduled task to a XML file and import the XML file on other PCs.

FYI... In Win 8 you do not need to create any scripting outside of the task scheduler just use the add argumnets section and add in -SignatureUpdate -MMPC
