        A little while ago on my Windows 10 Home 20H2 build 19042.985 a notification message popped in from the right side of the screen telling me that Windows Defender was out of date. Please note that the notification message popped in at 10:48am. When I clicked on the notification message the Windows Security settings window/dialog box opened. In the attached screenshot you can see that Defender had updated itself at 10:37am.

        Was Defender really out-of-date after only 11 minutes later? Does that seem strange? I’m curious as to why this occured; can anyone explain, please?

          Ummmm, well spotted! Time flies when one is having fun as well as when one isn’t paying attention to what day it is ….
