    Win7 SP1 Ultimate and Win10 17040.1000 64bit Pro


    Completed the update on 4 machines and all seemed to go OK. I did notice the Software Removal Tool stated for "...Windows Insider Preview and Server Technical Preview November 2017". These versions are regular retail. Strange.

    Just finished installing all four updates among which KB4048955. All done in 14 minutes. I really hope not to find any issues in the next 2-3 days coming while I am using my 2PCs.

    Unfortunately, it looks like there is a huge bug in this KB. On business machines it indeed installs 1709 without checking the chosen business branch. That’s not good news at all and the first complaints are slowly appearing It happens directly after the install of the latest KB and a check for new updates. Which happens after a restart or new boot for example. No way of stopping it anymore. I have an idea though, will let you know if it works. For now: Houston, we have a problem.

I have no idea what to do now, I am more or less in panic because I was working on a project that has to be finished. I HATE this shabby update mechanism of Win 10, I just hate it.

    *UPDATE * just lost another system to the very same effect. I am extremely angry right now. Also n both affected system some msterious update KB 4049011 is installed. Itís totally out of control here. Just lost both of my production system on business branch.

    Then you got a different update because this thread is for the update that is installed to systems that already have the Creators Update installed. Check your KB number and it will not be 4048955.

    Maybe its because I have the FALL CREATORS UPDATE already installed, but this is the first "Patch Tuesday" fix/update in YEARS that didn't require a restart. (Though I restarted anyway, just to be sure.)

    You'd almost think that nothing happened because of this update, because the computer restarted quickly and didn't freeze for 30 seconds after the restart. No "installing updates...please wait" during the restart process either. Very strange, but I'm not complaining.

    On my parentsí Acer desktop, The CU is at downloading 100% for almost half an hour. Nothing has moved but I did check Task Manager and Local System is showing activity. Not sure if I should leave it alone or what.

    Now itís installing. Does seem weird it took so long.

    I have had a couple of hassles with the Malicious Software Removal tool...

    On two VMs, initially it said the download failed and after the cumulative update was completed after reboot a check for updates allowed the KB890830 to be installed and successfully ran. These two machines have Bitdefender 2018 Internet Security. The run of the tool successfully completed in about 7 mins, which is as occurred for previous updates.

    On the only physical PC, the Windows Malicious Removal Tool was stuck at 0% installing for well over a hour with no identifiable activity via task manager. So I ended up restarting the PC to see if that would allow things to get moving. The cumulative update successfully completed along with the flash player update and I am at 1709 16299.64. This PC uses Windows Defender and no third party anti virus software.

    In the view installed update history it has the following entry:

    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows Insider Preview and Server Technical Preview x64 - November 2017 (KB890830)
    Failed to install on 15/11/2017 - 0x8024001e

    I have run Windows update troubleshooter and no outstanding issues remain, rebooted a couple of times but still not offered a replacement update for the failed one.

    For completeness, would like to have this last step successfully I would appreciate advice as to resolve this issue.

    I did look in C:\Windows\System32 and MRT.exe and MRT-KB890830.exe have date modified of 15/11/2017 8:53am which was when I was doing the not sure if it got stuck installing or just running. This has not been a problem previously on this machine.

    Any suggestions to resolve please?
