Unable to Pull Microsoft/IIS image from docker on Windows

Hi All, I am trying to pull docker IIS image from docker hub and unable to do so. Initially i tried with Docker for Windows stable Version 1.12.3 and execute the microsoft/iis pull command. This resulted me “Unknown Blob” error and the image was nit downloaded.
I then installed the Beta version 1.12,3 on Windows 10 Pro and switched to Windows container. This time when i execute the same command , the image was downloaded (3.8 GB) but failed to extract . I am getting the following error Failed to register Layer:
re-exec error: exit status 1: output: ProcessUtilityVMImage C:\ProgramData\docker\windowsfilter\5bff…7e7\UtilityVM: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Did any one encountered this error?

This is reported to be caused by AntiVirus protection software.

People need to uninstall it in order to get Windows Containers working.


Hi xasx, Thanks for response, however it is risky to uninstall the antivirus so looking for some other alternative to fix this.
