Hi Erza! 

Just a question:
can I suggest this step to all friends (using several kind of AV) or it is a Trend Micro specific register key?

Hi Max Slo,

It is not Trend Micro specific so, yes so can suggest it to your friends :)
You can also point them to Microsoft KB https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4056892/windows-10-update-kb4056892

My Windows Update went through just fine  and I did NOT do the registry change.  Maybe they updated the update so it works without manually doing the reg fix.
