Windows 10 v1809 Faces yet another Upgrade Block with Anti-Malware Solution Morphisec

Microsoft’s October 2018 update for Windows 10 has been like none other this time – full of issues and problems. It has caused it to gain notoriety for all the wrong reasons. The software giant has unfortunately failed to call it a day. Yet another issue has been discovered in the update. Windows 10 version 1809 has encountered yet another problem which has also been added to the list of known problems on the update history page. The issue that has sprung up this time relates to anti-malware solution Morphisec. The update history page states that this not only includes Morphisec but also involves other products that have been built on that SDK:

“Microsoft and Morphisec have identified an issue on devices that have installed Morphisec Protector or another application that uses the Morphisec Software Development Kit (SDK) including:  Cisco AMP for Endpoints. These applications may impact customers’ ability to save Microsoft Office documents.”

Possible Workaround 

As it has been the case with the previous issues with October 2018 update, the only workaround for this problem for now is uninstalling affected applications and acquiring updated versions from the respective vendors whenever available. Further, the details state that Microsoft is “working with Morphisec and Cisco to address this issue in updated versions of their applications.”

This latest addition to the known problems with October 2018 update for Windows 10 has almost put the experts in a new dilemma. For now this update has been the most troublesome ever out of all the feature updates that have been released. After the initial release which had to be withdrawn just four days later of its release because of some serious issues, Microsoft had to re-release the update a month later. However, the issues seem to be never-ending with one or another problem being reported every other day. Currently, a total of five upgrade blocks with are enlisted in known issues, without any clear solutions.

Even though Apple and Microsoft reached to a solution for iCloud for Windows problem last week, October 2018 update for Windows 10 continues to be in trouble. The next few months are significant for this update. It is yet to be seen whether the software company will be able to release effective solutions to these problems.
