Update 1709 fails to install F-Secure



I have a problem with installing the Fall Creators Update 1709 from Windows.

At the moment i have 5 PC's that have this problem. 

i noticed that all of these PC have F-Secure Business Computer Protection.


Is this problem known that this update cannot be installed because F-Secure is installed.


Hope to hear from you.


Kind Regards,

Stefan Baan

  • Hello Vad,


    Thank for your reply.

    The update was launched at november 2017. If F-Secure was the cause of this problem than someone already post it on your community site. So i don't think that the case.


    Thank for your answer.

    Have you tried to install without F-Secure (use UI-Tool!) It's worth a try. But I fear the problem is somewhere else. I even tried to install from a DVD and failed. So i ended up with a complete reinstall of W10.
    A hint I found browsing through various google pages: switch your system to UEFI, do not use BIOS.

    If that did the trick I will only see when the next, 180x arrives.

  • I have joined some tech forums like this forum and i noticed that a lot of people asked solution of an error when the Windows 10 Update 1709 Fails to Install. They don't know how do they deal with this error? The answer is quite simple.
    1- First and easy method is to run Windows Update Troubleshooter.
    2- You need to Disable your Antivirus software.
    3- last but not least, you can fix it to Updating Time, Region and Language Settings.
    You can also take a look of for getting more detail of each method.
