        There are two reports on Reddit already about bugs in the new version.

        Those two reports don’t mention “the new version”.

          Very true. That’s why I asked for clarification from the two original posters. Still no response.

        So maybe another KB that KOs the software. And an important security related service under 10/8.1 and at the worst of times.

        I am running Win 10 1903 Build 18362.657

        Clicking on the update History of any installed Defender Platform update (KB4052623) takes you a description of version 4.18.1901.7 – Last updated Mar 25, 2020

        My Update History shows these installations:

        02/04/2020 KB4052623 Version 4.18.2001.7
        02/27/2020 KB4052623 Version 4.18.2001.10
        03/20/2020 KB4052623 Version 4.18.2003.6

        This one is waiting to be installed:

        03/25/2020 KB4052623 Version 4.18.2003.8

        Which version of KB4052623 is reporting the Defender error: “Unexpected error. Sorry, we ran into a problem. Please try again.”

        Does anyone know the answer?
