I have my Windows Update set to ask me before it installs anything, because I like to know what's happening on my computer, but there are certain updates that happen regularly that I'd like to let go through automatically (like Windows Defender updates). Is there a way to do this where I can allow repeat updates like the Windows Defender definitions to go through on their own, while having the computer still ask me about other ones?

Thanks!

No ! The only way you can individually update is by updating manually !

Heh, I kind of figured that'd be the case. Oh well, I guess it's not tooo much trouble as is.

Thanks for the reply!
