According to this strategy, Windows 10 will adjust the anti-virus compatibility of the current device before getting updates. The system will first detect the existence of the corresponding key in the registry, if it does not exist then it will prevent the installation of security updates. However, in the March Patch Tuesday event, Microsoft abandoned this strategy.
Microsoft explained: “Some anti-virus products have compatibility issues with the current Windows security update, and there are unsupported calls in the kernel memory. According to our analysis of the available data, Windows 10 devices that are still in the support state through Windows Update Receiving the March security update will not have an anti-virus product compatibility review, which will expand the scope of Windows 10 devices to receive Windows security updates, including software protection for Spectre and Meltdown.
Although this strategy has been canceled, but Microsoft said it will continue to advance the compatibility review in the future, just like the previous patch Tuesday event launched to determine whether there are some problems with the computer. At present, most anti-virus products are compatible with the Windows 10 system. Therefore, such problems should not occur, and it is not ruled out that Microsoft may review it in the future.
