Hi. Maybe I´ve should have read your post before posting mine. If I get it right when reading the blog post we don´t have to do anything else but to download the microsoft update through windows update and that´s all we need to do with McAfee AV installed. Is this correct understood by me ?
Exactly. Everyone's panicking for no reason really.
Ok thank you. Sometimes It´s confusing when you read about the update on the microsoft support page. And when they can´t specify which AV vendors that is affected it don´t make it clearer. But of course there´s a lot of them. Hopefully it will also work on my other pc with avast. We´ll see tomorrow or today as it´s morning here in sweden after watching a late hockey final........
And we lost
That's too bad. I was watching the daily grind on CNN & their endless gloating over the ongoing White House soap opera.
Every day my eyes glaze over and I vow to watch something else, but I'm always drawn back, aargh.
Cheer up, it's -30°C (-22°F) (with the wind chill taken into account) here right now..........
I don't care who wins and loses when it's like this. LOL
Now off to bed, G'night 😉
1- my understanding had been that without the KEY, it wouldn't be downloaded. Now, however, it also comes within a rollup, so not clear if still true
2- once downloaded, they refer one to the antivirus-company to ensure compatibility when software [eg, McAfee] [perform calls.
3- I just now found an update from McAfee that answers the question that Microsoft raised re compatibility, namely, Document ID: TS102769 for consumers found at
http://service.mcafee.com/webcenter/portal/cp/home/articleview?locale=&articleId =TS102769 , which says among other things:
" Current status: Compatibility testing by McAfee has been completed on the products listed below." ...
..." Windows Product Compatibility for McAfee Products
McAfee has performed validation testing on the following products and found them to be compatible.
Please continue to return to this page for the latest updates. "
Thanks for that update
Strange, in 2 of my Win 10 Pro's - update wont install and in neither is that regedit key. One of them has Cloud AV up to date as of today and the other has nothing but WD since Consumer Beta went offline.
So for those it's wait and see I suppose.
When I started up my other pc with avast installed as I said I would do in my earlier post, no update was available. So there seems to be a problem there. Hopefully it will be solved. Avast states that their AV is compatible with the new windows update. But many in their forum has problems. I´m lucky that McAfee managed on this pc.
My Win 7 and the 3 Win 10's have now all updated with the security patch with no problems at all.
So all is well here.
