I am running Windows Defender Offline now on my desktop.

So far nothing alarming has popped up.. all seems to be going well.

I wanted to note that I also went to the Update tab and the update has failed.

Error Code: 0x80072ee7
Error Description: Windows Defender Offline couldn't install the definition updates. Please try again later.

I thought it was because I had a scan going so I canceled and tried again. But the same message. I am connected to the internet.

you will never be able to update wdo while wdo is running.

Incidentally, while wdo is running, you are NOT connected to the internet.

WDO is in charge.
