trend micro BSoD fall creators update

If you use a Trend Micro antivirus and you’re planning to install Windows 10 version 1709 on your computer, you should know that might result in BSoD errors.

More specifically, when attempting to install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update while running a Trend Micro antivirus tool, the following bluescreen error occurs: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

Due to this error, the install process fails and Windows 10 rolls back to the previous version (Windows 10 version 1703).

Fix BSoD errors when running outdated Trend Micro security tools

The good news is that the BSoD errors occur only if you’re running an outdated version of a TrendMicro antivirus software. To avoid these errors, you need to first install the latest updates available for your antivirus and only then hit the upgrade button.

Here’s how Microsoft explains this:

If you have an outdated version of a TrendMicro antivirus software installed when you attempt to install the Fall Creators Update, you may receive a bluescreen error, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

Trend Micro has release updated versions of their antivirus products to resolve this error. To install the Fall Creators Update, please install the latest version of your Trend Micro antivirus. You can find detailed resolution steps at this Trend Micro support site.

Also, keep in mind that installing Windows 10 version 1709 before applying the latest Trend Micro updates may render certain key features of your antivirus inoperable.
