    I wondered that myself so i asked them. There exists a contact possibilty on there site.
    They answered;

    Hi

    Yes, WAU Manager downloads and installs Windows defender updates except if it is configured for Driver updates only.

    Best wishes,

    Fred


    One can confirm Freds statement by looking in "update history"

    Sounds fantastic and thanks again. Was nor going to upgrade to windows 10 but found the interface with dark theme amd large fonts much better for my poor eyesight.

    Change of information.
    It turns out that the developer misunderstood my question. The program does not seperately update W.defender. All or nothing is the case. That is for sure now after a lenghty conversation about it with him after me realizing that it did not.

    What a pity, i liked it too.
