It happened to me a while ago with Defender.

I had downloaded 2 copies of the v11.3 runtime, on different systems, over time and it turned out only 1 had the problem. I deleted both install kits and downloaded again, ran the installation again and have had no problems since.

I am on Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1709 build 16299.192

Kathy said she knew about the problem and the latest runtime kit on the website is OK.

Who the hell knows how M$crosoft thinks anymore.

Over the past week there has been a plethera of updates from windows, now i cannot even shut down my computer and I get a Blue tooth security tag user popup on login I cant get rid of and its moved all my data files to some obscure area.

I had the same problem with W10 as well as I had been on W7 for years but I have to do W10 for a client.

Best strategy with W10 stability is to let it update itself and hope like hell M$crosoft do not screw up an update.

I snapshot all my frequently used Windoze virtual machines as soon as updates are available and if there is a problem I just roll back the snapshot.

For my plethora of old physical and virtual machines I use WSUS Offline update and it has NEVER let me down ... best way to update M$crosoft products I know and can save days of work when a re-install is needed.
> I generally run our software unders window 7. it is far more stable. Running under windows 10 has been a real pain. Needless to say, I am not impressed with Windows 10 at all.

Me neither ... it is an exemplary piece of M$crosoft work.
