Latest patch day updates (Dec. 8. 2015) broke remote X display for nxclient

Q: Latest patch day updates (Dec. 8. 2015) broke remote X display for nxclient

It took me almost a whole work day to drill down to the single patch causing the problem coming with the latest patch day.

It is kb3109094 which breaks the remote X display of the Xclient.
Please may somebody at microsoft have a look into this as kb3109094 is marked as a security patch and I suspect the security has been tightened too much here.
The whole process of finding the problem cause was very time consuming and it raises 3 questions for me:
Q1. Why can't I just download the patches that my system wants
without also automatically install them?
(It takes about 20 minutes up to an hour for my system to check the patch status if I invoke it manually and this is a process I have to repeat redundantly if I only install a subset of the shown patches in a single swoop)
After I had manually downloaded the required KBxxx.msu patches one by one I also had to install them one by one.
Q2. Why is there no GUI option to select a bunch of patches from a downloaded directory and install them in one go? (not forgetting to set a restore point before installing)
Q3. Why is there no easy! feedback channel for problems resulting from updates?

It may become worse with windows 10 automatic updates if a bad update breaks something and people cannot give feedback on this quickly.

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.)

OK, so after getting spooked by the "hidden agenda" of a series of recent 7 updates that apparently track your computing habits and install Windows 10 nagware, I uninstalled all the updates on my computer and have decided to start from scratch.

I just got a notice about a series of updates coming in on "Patch Tuesday" (9 June) of this month. I've looked up some of them and they seem to be somewhat important (I hid all the "recommended" ones which were nothing more than Windows 10 crap), but I'm curious to know what exactly do they "patch" or otherwise do, and how do they do it.

In layman's terms.

Microsoft's security bulletins are too technical for my understanding and I want to make sure I'm not installing adware, nagware, spyware -- or upgradeware.

The updates are:
KB3058515, Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (and which has apparently had some problems)
KB3033890, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (apparently something to do with Windows Media Player)
KB3057839, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
KB3059317, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
KB3063858, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
The last one is just MRT (KB890830) which I know to be safe.

For the first two, do I need to install them if I never use IE or WMP? I actually have them "turned off" (inaccessible) in Programs & Features. Should ... Read more

Hi all,

I just installed the round of critical updates through windows update. This was Thursday, Oct 14th.

Restarted, and now everytime I right-click on a file in Windows Explorer, explorer vanishes, the taskbar vanishes, the entire screen goes blue, then the screen comes back as it was before, except without explorer.

Also, the redraw of the system tray is incomplete.

All I want is to be able to tell which updates were installed by my computer on 10/14 so I can rip them out by their filthy roots.

Under add/remove programs, all the updates are listed, but there are no dates next to any of them. If I click on the support info link, I get a website, not more info about when I installed it.

Is there some way to know when an update was installed?

Thanks!

Hi all,
This is my first post here.
I have an XPS 13 9360, and had a dual boot Win 10 Home and Linux Mint system running fine (albeit because of WiFi driver issues, I had to go with 32-bit Linux and Legacy Boot to get Grub working).
Now, after a recent set of Dell updates, most notably the December 12th BIOS update (v.2.4.2), Grub was deleted and I could only boot into Windows. After managing to repair Grub using a Linux Live USB, I got Grub back and thought everything was fine (using UEFI now). However...
If I am in Windows 10 and choose to Restart, the Grub entry in the BIOS gets deleted again!!! I have to obviously then run through the whole process with a Live USB to get it re-installed.
What is more, after Windows exits, a while a dell SupportAssist screen will show, which runs some ePSA Pre-boot Assessment [4304.32], saying that a hard drive cannot be found.
The hard drive seems to work fine, and also there is no problem with Grub with the Windows Shutdown, so the fact that a hard drive can't be found on reboot is weird, potentially some driver bug?
The issue may be related to Windows 10 updates happening in parallel, but I cannot be sure.
Unfortunately, I tried to downgrade the BIOS firmware to an older version, only to be kindly informed that this is not allowed, so, thanks for that, I'm now stuck with an irreversible firmware update!

I have already wasted 2 days with this, when I just wanted my laptop to work as it was set up a few week ago, and wa... Read more

Hi Bartender. . .

I saw this thread and thought that your friend might like to go in and see if the desktop shortcuts and documents folders are still there - and whether he can salvage them.

The following commands must be issued from a command prompt and should be executed using the Administrator account in SAFEMODE as another admin account may not be allowed access due to folder/file permission settings. Of course, it won't hurt to try another admin account first.

from any command prompt ">" - replace the %user% variable with the actual username (no %)

cd c:\
cd Documents and Settings
cd %user%\Desktop
dir (this will list all files including shortcuts)


cd c:\
cd Documents and Settings
cd %user%
cd My Documents
dir (this will list all folders and files in My Documents)

.
To copy these files out to a DVD (assuming DVD drive e: - may run into space capacity problems) -

after the "dir" command, type this:

We have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit machine which is being accessed via RDP by a Windows 8.1 Pro machine.
The user is running Photoshop CC 2015 on the Win7Ult machine and everything works fine except for some coloration glitches.
For example, he is working on a file which has some blue hexagons in the image, and they appear as solid colors. When he starts to zoom in, blocky areas begin to discolor. "The effect looks much like a discoloration due to video compression."

When I opened my Quicken Deluxe 2015 today I got a pop-up saying that the program wanted to add "update/fix??? (something like that) and did I approve. I didn't know what it was and so I said no.
Now I think it might have been a new update "patch" for my Quicken Deluxe 2015. Was it?
I looked in the Help/About and I have Release R5 (24.1.5.11). Is that an old release? And if so, how can I get the newest update? (What is the latest update?)
I am using Win7.

I just checked online and many people said they downloaded the patch and then they had problems with their Quicken program. Therefore I might have been right in denying the download.
I notice there are two downloads
"QW2015R6Patch.exe" and the "Mondo" download. One is 40MB and the other is 60MB.
Does anyone use Quicken Deluxe 2015 and have you downloaded the patch?
#1- Does anyone know what I should do?
#2- If I ever had to delete Quicken (which I have used for years, but lately Quicken has not been to reliable, especially Turbo Tax), is there a good alternative to Quicken that I could use. Where I could input bank interest, doctor bills, etc., and then create reports for yearly IRS tax reports?

Greetings!

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

A:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

I run multiple Minecraft servers on my Windows 10 desktop. Just recently, I rebooted my PC to install updates, and now my servers can no longer communicate even though I have set up my static IP and port forwarded correctly. I have attached an image to prove that everything is set up to allow my servers to communicate, but that they cannot. I immediately figured out that the update must have caused the problem, and uninstalled it manually. Instantly the port jumped back online and players could once again connect. But it wasn't long before Windows 10 forced the update to reinstall and reboot the computer. Except this time, the update froze, leaving my computer at 37% installing updates for about 15 minutes before I gave up and manually shut the computer down by holding the power button. When it rebooted, it said the update had failed, and yet my servers remained disconnected from their ports. I told the computer to reinstall the update so it wouldn't force-reboot later. My troubleshooting process was interrupted my a Spring Break vacation. When I returned, my computer notified me that yet another update was available, and I installed it in the hopes that it had fixed the issue. No such luck. I created a random test port in my router for port 80, and it still shows up as being closed.

Installed Windows 7 Pro on my Thinkpad (2MB memory and 120GB Hitachi HD) back in January 2014 and ever since the various Lenovo support progs have worked fine, Power Manager included.
All Fn buttons worked and sleep/hibernate and resume, etc., worked fine too.  About 2-3 weeks ago (after July 2015 patch Tuesday) I have trouble with resume, both from sleep and hibernation. Symptoms:

1. Entering sleep/hibernation works as normal.

2. Resuming from sleep/hibernation, on 1st try, the computer resumes to the password screen and then goes back (takes more time than normal) to sleep or hibernation respectively.

3. On 2nd resume try, the computer resumes okay and I can enter a password and get back to my desktop.

Any obvious fixes to this? I have run all PC-Doctor's system tests and they check out okay.


Installed Lenovo Power Manager 6.67.5 (over the 6.67.4 version), but, no difference. Same resume issues. Uninstalled PM 6.67.5 and used W7's native power management. No difference, same resume issues. Then, reinstalled an older Lenovo PM 6.64.2. All Fn buttons
works okay, but, same resume problems/issues, no change.

Could the resume issues described above be the result of one of the July 2015 Windows 7 patches?  If so, which one?  Thanks!

After the Anniversary update on our two PCs, I find that Homegroup will not connect the two. One is running Pro 64-bit and the other runs Home 32-bit.

I can leave the Homegroup on my PC (Pro) and on the other. Then I create a new Homegroup on my PC and get the password. However, the other PC does not see any Homegroup to join on the network (only the option to create a new Homegroup). I never had any problem with this prior to the update.

If I select My Computer, I can 'see' the other PC but when I select 'Open' and box comes up with ID and Password. My PC is the only one of the two that is password protected. The Home PC boots right to the desktop.

Anyone having the same issue or know of a workaround?

Thanks.

I need some major help with the latest Windows Update (the set of patches that came out this Tuesday to help with the security issues), I think it is causing issues for my laptop PC. I'm not computer illiterate but I'mdefinitely nothing more than a beginner and this is starting to make me panic a little ^_^;

My laptop has been having major Startup and boot issues since the update. My laptop freezes and goes to a white-grey screen. The computer does start up - ie: the screen comes on (white screen, unless I am lucky enough to get a boot screen for a moment) the fans run, but it takes several attempts at turning it on and off again, and hitting either F12 or F8 (still not sure which one is the one that works) to get to a screen that allows me to repair the Startup and go back to a retore point. The last time this happened it also beeped at me however I would not be able to tell you what the code sounded like (I...panicked somewhat).

However, the restore point was made just after Windows downloaded the updates onto my comouter (I had automatic updates on), and I cannot shut down without my computer wanting to install the updates. So I'm stuck in an endless cycle of downloading these updates, then being forced to restore.

Can anyone help with either finding a way to stop my laptop installing these updates, or does anyone know a way to troubleshoot the updates themselves?

Hello all,
After updating my Win 7 x64 Pro desktop with the most recent patches (2015.12.09) it shows all of my mapped networked drives as disconnected.  Two of the drives were samba shared folders on a Linux (OpenElec) RaspPi and one was the memory card of an
Epson printer.  When I attempt to remap the drives for the networked devices they no longer show up under the Network folder in Explorer.  When the devices' local IP addresses are entered into Explorer's address bar I receive the error "Windows
cannot access..." with error code 0x80004005.
Many thanks to anyone who is able to point me in the right direction to resolve this issue.

Hi, I have a mixture of Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines on my work network all Intel. Today they started to install the Microsoft Spectre Patch for Windows 7 KB4056894 and
Windows 10 KB4056892. All the computers the have installed on sart to display that the copy of Windows is not Genuine Windows, I reboot them and then it goes to the Windows Startup repair and t can repair the computer at all. Also the Reset feature in Windows
10 won't even reset. I've had to disable Microsoft Updates via GPO, but even when I did that it still installed! I've had to disable the Microsoft Update Service using GPO also to counteract this. It's turning in to nightmare, does any one have experience
with this as I need to advice so I don't has to go to all machines around my sites and re-image them. All help would be most appreciated.
Thanks

Hey All,
Walked into complete chaos today at the office...seems like a Microsoft patch that was automatically updated on my users machines completely messed up their video settings.
The Dell GX270s would all boot up but then go blank after XP logo screen. As far as I can figure out, some new driver update threw the integrated Intel video driver out of whack causing it to use a resolution that the crt monitors can't handle. So far I have had to reinstall the intel driver and overwrite what was automatically installed.

Anyone else run into this today?

A:Latest Microsoft Patch and Intel Video Chip

Yep, here too. Intel chipset video cards. So far I've gotten two calls, fixed one with a system restore. Other one I'm waiting for a callback.

Haven't had any problems with Windows Update for a looooong time....guess it's inevitable to have glitches. <sigh>

We were fortunate that we had a spare M72e unit for testing as we have several around our offices. All of these systems are Windows 10, Version 1703, Build 15063.786. We wanted to test Version 1709 before mass deployment (WSUS and Network Push) to everyone in the company. The inital 1709 build came out with no problems an even the BIOS update worked (F1JY72USA.exe, F1KT72A). Everything was running fine for a day and we attempted to get the latest Windows Security Patches for Specter and Meltdown. We were able to get the system to boot Once after this, did a quick test on our software and then restart to verify that all was good. It wasn't. The Fans in the system started to run full speed and no boot screen showed up. I let the system run for about 3 minutes before I shutdown and tried again with the same results.Next I pulled the memory to see if I could get a Post Beep. I received the Beep and then attempted to boot again with the same results.After the last failure I attempted to Clear the BIOS by pulling the battery and switching the jumper. I left the machine overnight and then plugged it in the next morning and the system fans ran High the entire time. I got a couple beeps, but the system would keep restarting over and over with the fans running high over and over.3 boots later I pulled the power and put everything back (battery, jumper) and attempted to boot normally thinking the BIOS was cleared. The system has no display and the fans run High all the time and it ... Read more

There is no other way to say it, I have absolutely no idea what happened, one day it worked the next day nothing.
I use remote desktop from school to access my home computer just in case I leave a file at home. I used to work perfectly. Then one day it just stopped working. I did notice that there was a "Security update for windows x64 based systems" that was installed the night it broke. That update seemed to update the windows firewall and when it did that it killed my internet. I fixed my internet by going to restore defaults.
I have tried everything with this, I even shut the firewall down and it still didn't work. I uninstalled the updates but still nothing.
This has happened only once before when I installed Comodo which is another firewall. That wouldn't let me use remote desktop even when it wasn't running, the only way i fixed that was to uninstall it.

Is there anything i can do? I have 3 computers (other two are xp) that are hooked up via a network so I can test it whenever.

After applying KB4056894 to my windows 7 laptop, visual studio 2010 stopped working, manifesting all sorts of subtle bugs which did not go away even after fully repairing Visual Studio 2010.  In addition, the import settings operation returns fourteen
errors consistently, also new with KB4056894.  I just restored from a Nov 2017 system image and now everything is stable and functional again.
I have now blocked all future windows 7 updates, which is fine with me.  These updates always consumed a lot of time and I'll be happy to go without them starting now.
I also have windows 10 installed on the same laptop which I stopped using several months ago, in favor of Windows 7 due to the latest Windows 10 being such a horrible operating system.  It's even worse than Windows 8.  Sorry to say this, but it's
true!
At least in windows 7 all control panel settings reside in one control panel! I believe that Microsoft has been working on the new metro/universal app for settings since 2011 starting in windows 8!  It's now 2018 and these settings are still split between
the UWP settings app and the desktop control panel.  I thought I took a lot of time to get things done, however Microsoft takes the cake when it comes to taking time to get things done.
If my tone seems to be a bit snotty, it is, but it is upsetting to hear talk of AI and Neural Networks when the CPU architecture and windows OS seems to have been neglected to such a great ext... Read more

I was about to post to seek for help but I've fixed it myself, so I'm going to post just to give an heads up, the latest system Intel driver update (9.21.0.1489, from Windows Update) broke my audio, it couldn't find my audio card anymore. I've tried to download and install the audio drivers (and the chipset drivers) from the Lenovo product support page, it didn't fix anything, finally I could solve the problem with the latest "generic" realtek drivers, here is the link in case somebody has the same problem, make sure to download the 64 bit version http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&Down...

I monitor and record various Microsoft Updates for Work, Today I discovered what I believe to be a mistake in online security guide:

I was looking at updates for Windows 10 version 1607 for 32 and 64 bit systems when i noticed an odd patch out

It appears to me the 4054517 patch which belongs to windows 10 version 1709 32 bit was wrongly attached to the 1607 32 bit 

Clicking on download for this patch gives you a download list for the wrong version of windows 10?

Is there anyone who can confirm this
