Cumulative update for Windows 10 (KB3093266) prevents PSB client intallation

MikaK W/ Alumni Posts: 22 Digital Defender

This applies to PSB Workstation Security 10.60.


Microsoft have published a cumulative update for Windows 10 (KB3093266). This update introduced a wide-ranging block on an installation component that F-Secure uses. The unfortunate side-effect of this is that the installation of F-Secure PSB Workstation Security 10.60 on Windows 10 systems will fail.


F-Secure is working actively with Microsoft to resolve the issue. For the time being, you can work around the issue in the following way:


  1. Uninstall Microsoft's cumulative update KB3093266.
  2. Reinstall PSB Workstation Security 10.60.
  3. Reinstall Microsoft's cumulative update KB3093266.

Note that, in Windows 10, Microsoft Defender is enabled by default. It will provide you with basic protection against any malware until the issue gets resolved.


For more information about the cumulative update for Windows 10, see Microsoft KB article (September 30, 2015).
