Has anyone ever seen Windows 10 screensaver not start up after the specified time because there was some type of windows update available?

For me, it seems that when a Windows Defender definition update or any other Windows update is available, my screensaver will not load properly. If that update doesn't install immediately, it hinders the activiation of the screensaver. The screen goes blank and the only way to get back to the desktop is by hitting control, alt delete and click cancel to get back to the desktop.

My workaround when this happens, is check for updates, they show (although sometimes they don't show for hours), I update and then my screensaver starts working again.
