I've got Windows/Microsoft Update on my Windows 7 laptop set to notify me when updates are available but not to do anything automatically.

I also have Windows Defender running and it seems to have daily or semi-daily updates for its signature database but it uses Windows Update utility to get and install these updates.

Is there a way to automatically download and install the Windows Defender signature updates but leave the rest of Windows Updates set to manual?
