Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build 17120 today, bringing with it some minor new features that have to do with Windows Defender Application Guard.

The registry key requirement remains intact for users of older Windows versions, such as 7, 8, and 8.1.

You may remember the news at the very beginning of 2018 about some very big and very scary security vulnerabilities called Meltdown and Spectre.

Microsoft is removing a check for anti-virus compatibility before rolling out Windows security updates.

While testing the app, Microsoft is also calling it a Hosted Web App (HWA) instead of a PWA but both operate on a similar basis; turning your web code into an app that runs locally with increased access to system resources. However, it does include number of general bug fixes and minor improvements, and changes to the new setup experience for privacy settings. The operating system was not able to become as successful as Microsoft would have wanted and this is why we believe that the company hopes to achieve this by making it a part of Windows 10 rather than leaving it as a standalone operating system.
