No, this is new version of Windows defender. Works differently.


Another issue I got is when using photo app to view photo, if you minimise it or go to other program and then come back to view the photo again, the photo app just preview a blank image. Have to close and open the app again. LOL.
So Microsoft changed it to no longer can be off by Antivirus because on my current Windows 10 PC (not creator update), it's managed by my antivirus.

Hmm...I may have misunderstood the new Windows Defender.


Seems like it is not actually running (for anti-virus). But some other component of it seems to be still running.


Just that the icon cannot get rid of from the system tray???

Quickly updated via the update assistant before they release on Windows Update.
So far no problems. PC is 5 years old.
Updated another 7 years old PC, also no problems.

My itchy hand wants to download the standalone installer for the Creator Update

But my brain is telling me to wait until my PC receive the update (Microsoft is releasing the update in batches, those newer system will receive it first and older system will receive later)

Looks like my brain is right to wait for the update.... let Microsoft patch up will the bugs first
My itchy hand downloaded the standalone installer and installed liao.

So far it's ok.

One desktop pc no issues whatsoever, but my Asus Taichi21 laptop had the no wifi issue. Had to plug in an ethernet cable and downgrade the driver and tinker around before it suddenly started working. Still not so sure if it has to do with me plugging in an ethernet cable, downgrading the wifi driver or reinstalling the Asus ATK drivers, or a combination of the above.

Overall got good, and got bad. Wished Microsoft would stop messing around with drivers, and focus solely on Windows itself. Always pushing drivers that break things for me...

I thought antivirus will disable it by default? No?
Yes, you are right, antivirus will disable it by default.

i encounter my whole system hang after the creator update, excel unable to work, when i tried to select multiple folder, it will hang, my speaker becomer much softer.

GPU Nvidia Asus GTX 970

RAM G skill RipJaws 16GB

HDD WD Black 4TB

DVD rom Asus DVD RW
DVD rom Asus DVD RW

after i revert back the update, everything work fine again.
My question, can we avoid this creator update permanently ?
Keep reverting back to older version of the update?
What causing the lag/hang? Is it my hardware too old?

The Creator Fall Update so far quite stable.
Performed a clean install after using the media creation tool to create a bootable usb flash drive.

i manage to trace the problem already, i did a clean install of win 10, then did the creators update.
Then slowly install all my program 1 by 1.

End up its the Anti Virus (Avast) causing all the lag. I uninstall it and the problem resolve. Think its not compatible with windows defender...

You should disable windows defender since you are using Avast.
