Re: Windows 10 v1709 / LiveSafe

I had a few extra hours Wednesday / Thursday, so I restored W10 1703 & LiveSafe 'system image'. This time instead of uninstalling McAfee LiveSafe for a major (1709) Windows update (which is recommended by McAfee); I turned OFF these items in LiveSafe > Real Time Scanning, Firewall, Auto Updates, and Scheduled Scans (basically everything I could turn OFF) before all the update downloading. Defender then may have turned ON its firewall, etc.(?).

After 16 hours of >> downloading (1.28 Mbps), installing, more downloading, installing, restarting several times, etc.; I now have W10 1709 and McAfee LiveSafe both working great. I made a new image with 'Backup and Restore (Windows 7)'. Can't wait for the next major Windows 10 update.

Please mark this thread as solved, Thanks everyone for your support.

Done so on your request. I installed 1709 yesterday on the upstairs PC I disabled Real time scanning to be sure.
