Updates 5/3/10 - "OFFICE Tuesday"

Q: Updates 5/3/10 - "OFFICE Tuesday"

In a recent move, Microsoft has designated "the FIRST Tuesday of each month for NON-security related Office patches."
A list of patches released today are included in the following article: http://windowsitpro.com/microsoft-office/welcome-microsoft-office-patch-tuesday-may-2016

Preferred Solution: Updates 5/3/10 - "OFFICE Tuesday"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've found: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4558998 which I *think* is the July patch Tuesday update for WIndows Server 2019 (long term support channel).
1. Is there any way to confirm which KB is the "patch Tuesday"?
2. Why doesn't the above link, list all of the fixed KBs that have been rolled into it?
I did find this site: https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2020-1350
3. For example, for CVE-2020-1350, it does list 4558998 in the Security Updates table at the bottom. Does this imply CVE-2020-1350 is fixed by applying 4558998? But again, why isn't there just one page for 4558998 which lists all addressed CVEs?
My overall goal here is to be able to have a definitive list of cumulative updates and know exactly what is included in them.
Thanks

According to an article that I just read, 7 critical updates are to be released on "Update Tuesday"(July 11th): 4 for Windows and 3 for Office.

Don't we just love to see the second Tuesday of each month arrive?

It is now Friday and my Windows 7 - 64 bit OS hasn't found this month's updates yet. It's using 50% CPU usage on one of the svchost.exe for system functions in Task Manager (see attached screen shot). I tried to find help on the Web but there are many and conflicting theories and solutions why this is happening. Apparently I am not the only on having this problem. IS there any easy and sure remedy?

Today is Microsoft Tuesday --- the SECOND Tuesday of the month --- on which Microsoft is expected to release its monthly cycle of Windows security updates.   Based on previous history, they should become available at 1 P.M. [USA - Eastern Daylight Saving Time]
Starting today, there is a new procedure:   Windows Update for consumer PCs will offer a [single] security monthly quality update (also known as the "monthly rollup") that will contain all new security fixes for a month... plus fixes from all previous monthly rollups.
A rollup is simply multiple patches rolled together into a single update. These rollups will replace individual patches . Each monthly rollup will supersede the previous month's rollup. The ultimate goal is for these monthly rollups to become fully cumulative, which will happen as the team adds patches released in the past, so users need only to install the latest single rollup.

Selecting Help, then Check for Updates from within any Office application (Word, Excel, etc.) produces absolutely nothing: no attempt to access the web (I have DSL), no error message, nothing. Windows Update, Symantec's Live Update, et all work fine. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?

Hey everyone,

Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end

Greetings.
After last tuesday-patching, my G15 Logitech keyboard will not start the software to the screen and the macro-keys after win goes to sleep.
AFAIK nothing has changed in my settings, or in the G15 software OR in the patch arriving from MS. So I have no clue whatsoever to where to look for an error.
Can somebody guide me, please?

A:G15 (blue backlight) and "sleep" after last tuesday-patch, problem

I have a G15, and sometimes it won't load the profiles after the PC has woken up from sleep. I don't think it has anything to do with the patch, it's just an idiosyncrasy of the G15 itself.

Try pressing the "profile mode" key by the LCD (leftmost button), It should rotate through your G15 apps and settle on your profiles if you press it enough. It seems to load the profile then. Mine's always done this, even before Tuesday's patch.

I don't know why, but that works for me.

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

She connects via VNC on a dial-up. Now the only thing I had in mind was to some how network her printer to be available to an outside source from home and add it as a shared printer on the office computer. Is this possible with a dial-ip and also not being on the same network? I wonder if I could do it through HTTP or something similiar?

It's been a month since my laptop gone wrong. All programs doesn't run properly, and stop working many times. Media Player, Office, Internet explorer, all stop working frequently, and I have to wait ten second until five minutes to continue my work.

Two days ago I noticed that when I downloaded windows update, the updates wasn't saved in OS folder like it used to be. New folders named like "1ee10074..." appeared in my hard disk. I realized that the problems begin when I found new folder like this in my hard disk, and now the problems is getting worst after updates. I thought my "OS" was full, but the indicator say "11.8 GB free of 58.5 GB".

I can't delete or move the folder without permission, and try to copy them to "OS". Now each time I open a file, two windows are opened, one is my opened file and the other is blank window.

I don't have enough knowledge about computer. Can anyone help me, please?

A:How to fix "not responding" problem in all programs and "lost updates"

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

That temp file that you mentioned, is it in the root of the system drive?
In other words is it located here: C:\1ee10074....

If that is where it is, then it could be from a .NET update. They do not always remove that randomly named folder. Don't delete it just yet, go inside of it (say continue to the permissions security pop ups). If you find several folders with 4 numbers for the name, then it is probably from an update. Those numbered folders are for different languages. You can delete the folder if you want or just leave it. The folder is not the cause of your problems.

Note: I can't take any screen shots because my problematic laptop won't even start up fully.

So as a bit of background, my 6-year-old Toshiba A505-S6005 laptop battery has been horrible for ages (as in my laptop MUST be plugged in at all times or else it will immediately spontaneously turn off without a proper shut-down. It also spontaneously turns off it it overheats or starts working too hard or something), so I don't use it very much - but it's where I keep all my music and movies, and I've been gradually transferring these files to other devices, which is why I still use it occasionally...

Anyway, 2 nights ago, I downloaded and installed updates, and after taking a while to install updates, it stayed on the "shutting down..." screen for a long time... And when I woke up the next morning, it was STILL on the "shutting down" screen - and it had been 8 hours by that point (I was actually very surprised that it hadn't spontaneously turned off overnight). So I did a force-turn-off because I thought it would start up ok.

Today, I turned on the computer figuring it would boot up ok. So we get to the start-up screen - it even spends a mere split second on the usual improper-shut-down-how-would-you-like-to-start-up screen (it usually spends 30 seconds on that screen) and it goes through "configuring updates," and this took a while, and then it went back to the "shutting down..." screen.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

Does anyone know what the primary differences are between the HP "Office Jet" and HP "Desk Jet" printers or all-in-one machines? Is the way they handle printing (bubble versus ink jet) or is it the sturdiness or amount of paper it can handle in a day??? I have looked all over the HP website and have asked the same question to their cust. support, without answers. I need to buy a machine this week and want to know how these two product lines differ. Thank you. (I mean that!)
 

A:what's the difference in an HP "Office Jet" and a HP "Desk Jet"?

The Deskjet and Officejet names basically imply that they should be used for home/business respectively. There are all-in-one versions for both the officejet and deskjet models, however you will often find that the officejets are a bit larger, have maybe a few more bells and whistles and can handle more paper, as well as deal with more paper.

They pretty much can do the same thing, depending on the model you choose, and some of their stats will be comparable, such as the ppm, or Pager per Minute. One of the biggest things though is the paper they are designed to use for a months time. your typical deskjet is recommended for 1000 pages or less a month, where as the officejets you will often find them with that number around 1000, 1500, 3000 or more a month.

For the typical small or home office that plans on printing out a few reports and some pictures here and there deskjets or officejets are fine, the print quality on each will be nearly the same (or a perfect match) But if your in a position that requires you to print multiple reports each day, each with a few dozen pages or so, officejets are your best bet. They can handle more paper, and are designed to deal with more paper and will prolly last longer in the long run.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

PROBLEM:

When I run the install Windows updates, the updates do not install, and I receive the following message (not verbatim, but close):

"Some updates were unable to be installed..."

This problem "came out of no where" and there has been no suspicious activity prior to it starting other than an IE7 redirect rootkit that NeonFx helped me remove (if I recall correctly an infection of agp440)...
