Specify the time to check for definition updates

This policy setting allows you to specify the time of day at which to check for definition updates. The time value is represented as the number of minutes past midnight (00:00). For example 120 (0x78) is equivalent to 02:00 AM. By default this setting is configured to check for definition updates 15 minutes before the scheduled scan time. The schedule is based on local time on the computer where the check is occurring. If you enable this setting the check for definition updates will occur at the time of day specified. If you disable or do not configure this setting the check for definition updates will occur at the default time.
