    Each time Windows Defender wants to install an update on my pc, PG is asking permission for "Mpas-d.exe" and "mpsigstub.exe" to do so.
    This happens on an average of twice a week.

    Has anybody any idea how I can customize PG to accept these two files in
    order for them to install each update automatically?
    I have already put these files in the Security section of PG without any effect. The reason is perhaps that the subdirectories of these two files is changing names each update.

    Thank you.

    Hi Nuha.

    I don't use Win Defender so i'm assuming those two files change or are created with each update performed?! If so,follow these steps.

    In the security tab,right-click on each of those files and select 'Change Last Action' -> 'Set To Permit Always + Ignore Change'. That stops PG checking the hash each time.

    If that doesn't help let us know.
