Today is August 2nd, and we’re all waiting for the Anniversary Update. But instead the second major update for Windows 10, Microsoft just pushes other, minor updates for the system and its features. After the cumulative update KB3176929 for Windows 10 Preview, a new update for Windows Defender was released, as well.

The update is called KB2267602, and is just a definition update for Windows Defender. Since Microsoft releases such updates quite often it wouldn’t be a big surprise, if it wasn’t pushed on the day of the Anniversary Update’s release.

Windows 10 users worldwide are surprised by the fact that Microsoft released a few updates today, but none of these updates is the Anniversary Update. It’s still not clear what Redmond wants to accomplish with this, but we’ll probably know more once the Anniversary Update gets released.

We also have to remind you that you won’t be able to install this update if you have another antivirus program installed on your computer. So, in case you receive an error while downloading KB2267602, keep in mind that it is probably caused by another antivirus program.

Of course, as soon as Microsoft finally releases the Anniversary Update, or maybe some another minor update (the third one for today), we’re going to make sure to let you know about it, so stay tuned.
