    VPN Tap driver won't install

    Since upgrading windows 10 1803 I have been having issues installing the TAP driver from my VPN install package.
    I use Private Internet Access and Windows 10 for the past few years without any issues.
    Well not until I upgraded to Windows 10 1803, the Tap driver just won't install, as a result, I get an unknown device listed in the hardware devices.
    Each time I try to install the driver I get access denied. The only way i got this to work was booting into safe mode and updating the driver from there. But I'm not 100% sure why, I suspect its my mailware program as it stopped me from updating the nvidia drivers, so I turned it off and nvidia installed perfectly.

    So if anyone else is having trouble and you have a malware app turn it off and try to install, if not boot into safe mode it should install.

    This is a brand new build of Windows 10 and there are a lot of changes included with it. I would wait to see if PIA comes out with an updated build shortly to resolve this issue.
