Microsoft Windows Update - Antivirus Vendor

Please see message below from Microsoft as seen on their site:

In reference to Windows security updates released January 3, 2018, and antivirus software.
Microsoft customers will not receive the January 2018 security updates (or any subsequent security updates) and will not be protected from security vulnerabilities unless their antivirus software vendor sets the following registry key:

Key=“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” Subkey=“SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat” Value=“cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc” Type="REG_DWORD”
