I know what you are thinking, but yes, you do have to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. If for no other reason than that it has new security options to combat ransom-ware. The new options can also help protect against zero-day exploits. Therefore, even though it has taken precious time from me that I cannot never recover, update now.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

In the name of transparency I’ll come right out and say the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is not the easiest update I have ever done. I had little, non-fatal issues with each install on multiple Windows 10 computers. While the hype for the Fall Creators Update revolves around support for mixed reality — laying digital content over the real world — the security features are the real star.

If you go to Windows Defender Security Center > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings you’ll see Controlled folder access I blogged about previously. Some folders are protected by default – add anything else mission critical.

There are numerous other security related updates making this an important update. It caused us no catastrophic issues , so, it coulda been worse; but plan on giving yourself an hour to accomplish this update.
