    Not only that, but also if you run the MediaCreationTool1809.exe you downloaded on Tuesday it now won't run, saying...

    MS is really screwing it up this time! MediaCreationTool1809.exe worked fine yesterday and earlier today but now we get this forced push back to MediaCreationTool1803.exe.

    Can you still download the ISOs directly without using MCT?

    I can't find the Tweet that was going around from the NYC bash, but it said something like it was available for "seekers" ahead of PT WU release. Well, we know all that changed rapidly, so now maybe they pulled it back to announce it again really Officially, banner firework and all, next Tuesday?

    Thanks, I just gave up and shutted it all down just what you did. Maybe it's just better this way...
    Aww...Darn...I was gonna tell you what I found but since you're giving up, oh what the heck here goes.

    I started by searching for remove red organization warnings in win 10 1809 and came across this:
    It’s now easier to enable Windows Defender Application Guard, which runs the Edge browser in an isolated, virtualized container for a more secure browsing experience. Head to Windows Security > App & Browser Control and click “Install Windows Defender Application Guard” under Isolated Browsing. You can also configure its settings from here. If you’re on a PC managed by an organization, you can view the settings your organization has configured here.
    Source
    You're probably not in an organization, but you do have 10pro with grpedit, use windows defender (from your specs), and the red warning. That app guard link in the quote shows how to go to grpedit to check settings. There may be a setting there to stop the warnings.

    I'd help more with grpedit but I have 10home and no grpedit to explore to help you out. but looking further that app guard link led me to MS's Configure Windows Defender Application Guard policy settings site and that may explain the group policy settings.

    From that site I found in the left panel this MS link that just might be what you're looking for: Manage Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection alerts when you land on that page look to the right panel and you'll see a list of articles for the topic one of which is Suppress Alerts, the fourth paragraph is:
    There are two contexts for a suppression rule that you can choose from:
    • Suppress alert on this machine
    • Suppress alert in my organization
    Bingo! If the org setting to suppress doesn't work try the machine one, heck if it'll let you do it, leave 'em both on.

    There are two caveats you should be aware of:
    1. You have to have Windows Defender Application Guard enabled and you can check for that in Control Panel >Programs >Turn Windows Features On or Off it's explained here at the top.
    2. You may have to sign up for and install Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection if you don't already have it, it's also explained at the top.


    Hope this helps you out.

    Nope, pressing F12 in Edge no longer works for me, nor does clicking on ... show a F12 Developer Tools choice.

    No. The F12 then set 'Emulation - user agent string' to 'Apple Safari (iPad)' trick also only offers the April 2018 Update.

    Whacky backy is to be blamed. The line from being brilliant to dumb is blurred.......

    Maybe they pulled it back due to file loss problems experienced by some users.
