Q: Two Updates Failed, One is Security Update for Adobe Flash (critical), other is Security Monthly Quality Rollup (no info).

Hi.
Thank you for all your support and security updates for my two Surface RTs.
They?re great and I don?t want to see them go. A quick aside? It would be nice for my two Surface RTs and me, if Microsoft had a change of heart and decided to port Windows 10 RT with Office RT for Surface RT and get a few
more years support. Anyway.
Today one of my Surface RT 8.1 provided the option on shut down, to update and restart, which I did.
It said it was installing 4 updates. When rebooted, I went to view update history and found two failed updates and three successful ones for a total of five.
The first one in the list that failed is this one here below.



Then to get more information, I clicked the link shown there for 4048958 to learn more.
That took me to the Microsoft Security Update Guide, where I searched for 4048958 and was provide two links for RT 8.1.
Both links, one for IE11 and one for RT 8.1, go to the KB 4048958 article, which says to get more information, go to the Security Update Guide, which of course takes one back to the KB.
Not very informative loop I guess.
The second update that is on the list above showing as failed, is the one for Adobe to prevent remote code execution.
When I am in Windows Update and double-click the failed entry for Adobe, and then click the link for more information, it takes me to a URL that does not show a KB number and provides a link for more information as you see here below.



During the first time I clicked that link my RT was being sluggish that for about 3-5 minutes, every click or letter I type took about 15-30 seconds to get processed.
Eventually I right-clicked and waited about 30 seconds or more and then selected open in new window from the pop-up menu.
Then after another long wait of maybe 20-30 seconds, I got the message you see here below.
As I?m running a Surface 8.1 RT, there probably is not an Itanium 64 processor inside.
:-) Right?



After this error screen showed up, my sluggish extremely slow performance went back to normal faster speed and the link ?ADV170019? worked as one would expect, and took me to the URL here below.



On that URL I scrolled down to the Windows RT 8.1 platform in the table and then over to the download column and clicked ?Security Update? and was given the same error message screen shown earlier here in this email, that it has been detected that I am using
an Itanium 64 processor and it is not compatible with the URL.
Is it possible someone with Itanium 64 processor is on our connection? Is it just a scripting error on the Microsoft URL?
Can I get the update? I?m sure Microsoft is already working on this, but wanted to be sure.
Kinda frustrating. Please advise.
Thanks for listening.

Preferred Solution: Two Updates Failed, One is Security Update for Adobe Flash (critical), other is Security Monthly Quality Rollup (no info).

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.)

1) I updated first MS Essential : OK

Then, everything goes wrong:
1) Windows refuses to start (frozen on MS logo)=>
        a) I shut down my laptop manually (Power button) =>

        b) I restart my laptop and a dialog box recommends "startup repair" : I pressed Enter and then the system searches for "repairs" eternally... => I shut down the laptop manually again.
2) I re-re-started my computer and... Windows starts normally.
3) When I checked for the installed Update : "failed" appears... for KB4103718 [2018 roll up] but 2018-05 Security & quality Roll up for .NET FRAMEWORK (KB4099633) is installed for the 3rd time
4) I got a message to install KB4103718 AND KB4099633.
P.S.: A tec checked my laptop and fixed 2 issues on the Registry and System files, did a restor point to the 8th of May since the issue appeared last week. I got the Error message 0x8000ffff last week.

Hi there, for a few days now I've had the Windows 7 Update shield next to my Shut Down button no matter how many times it is "installed". Looking in the Update History, I found the title of this post and pasted it. It has failed multiple attempts
to install. I  have tried the Windows update troubleshooter and that didn't work so I then tried to open CMD and type the command Ren
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak (as instructed by https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10164/fix-windows-update-errors) but then was  hit with "Access Denied" in the CMD. 

I think it is also having an effect on my internet as it has been terribly slow when trying to use my PC for online gaming.

My specs:
Windows 7 x64
Nvidia Asus Geforce 970 OC
Intel i7 860 2.8 ghz 
14gb DDR3 Ram


I would be grateful for any help. Thank you.

I am from National Insruments, we have a software product called Lookout, when we install the update 2017-06 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4022719), there is a problem for window to pop up.
In our software, there is a control panel(panel 1), in panel 1,there is a button(button1) which is connected to another control panel(panel2).
If we click button1, panel can pop up. Before we install the update, the normal action is panel can pop up on the top layer, which can been seen in the following picture.
But after we install the ipdate, the phenomenon is strange, when clicking button2, panel 2 can pop up, but under panel1, we have to click on the button for another time, then panel 2 can show up in the front, this phenomenon is not expected.
I wonder if there are some changes causing this reaction. For example, modifying register key of fixed value of windows parameters , anyone has any ideas or recommendations?

Trouble is, the update will not install. It will attempt to do so several times, before I get the message that there is a "reverting" to the computer's previous status. I haven't the option of not letting this happen repeatedly, since every time I turn off the computer the same nightmare begins. Then, it's very difficult to get things going again the next time I turn on the computer. The update is said to be "critical" to security, so I'd like to have it on the machine, but....

Here's the scenario:
Our server admins are distributing the month "Security Only" updates for .NET Framework via WSUS yet our vulnerability scanner triggered with these two alerts:
-  Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework (April 2017) [KB 4014559]

Our patch policy states that we only deploy Critical and Security Microsoft updates to endpoints (predominantly Windows 7 devices) that we support.
However we have noticed that the third party that setup our patch deployment through AutoTask have setup Rollups to be deployed as well as Critical and Security Patches to all endpoints.
Aren't Rollup patches a consolidation of all Security patches that are individually released on Patch Tuesday and non critical patches (which we dont have to deploy)?
Need some direction on this so we can decide whether to deploy Rollup patches or remove them from the approved list through Autotask.

Hello,
I'm trying to gather a list of KB #s addressing a specific vulnerability as well as all of the remediations that supersede the originals, if that makes sense. 
For example, I'm searching for CVE-2017-0144. The immediate remediations are listed under https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/security-updates/securitybulletins/2017/ms17-010 , such as 4012598
However, if I search through the update catalog: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=4012598 I can see that for some products the original update has been replaced by another one, with a different KB id, for example for Microsoft
server 2008 it's replaced by 4018466.
The problem arises where the data obtained through the API does not provide information about most cumulative updates and monthly quality rollup previews.
Going through the update catalog we can find that there was a preview 4012220 containing the patch, but the API doesn't provide this so through the tool we don't know that 4012220 also protects against wannacry. So if a user has 4012220 installed
on the machine, we can't programmatically determine they are protected since 4012220 isn't in the wannacry remediation list.
My question is, is there any way to find the FULL list of KB# without web scraping the update catalog? Is there perhaps a different API I could use to get a full list of KB# that include a certain vulnerability fix?
Thanks in advance.

Being that the December Rollup is due out tomorrow, I was going to install the above November Rollup.
But when I run the Windows Update it gives me the October Monthly Rollup KB3185330.

Hey guys,
I've been wondering about one thing...
According to Microsoft Update Catalog, quite a few .NET updates for Windows 7 SP1 have been superseeded by the October's 2016 Security and Quality Rollup for the .NET Framework 3.0 SP 2, 4.5.2, and 4.6 (KB3188744). For example: KB3163251 (MS16-091)
or KB3142033 (MS16-065)
OK, fine. Everything would be OK, except one thing. The KB3188744 is only for Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 according to the KB article description and the name itself: 

October, 2016 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.0, 4.5.2, 4.6 on Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 (KB3188744)
So what about Windows 7 SP1? We are deploying patches via SCCM in our organization, and the KB3163251 or KB3142033 for Windows 7 are no longer available (expired), but the new KB3188744 cannot be deployed because obviously it shows up as not required
on Windows 7 machines.
So is manually installing the previous patches like KB3163251 and KB3142033 the only way to patch older vulnerabilities now? Or is it simply a bug that .NET Framework security and quality rollup was not released for Windows 7 this month?
Thanks in advance for answers.

In Registry, it look like this

This value is useless, because thers is no MSASCuiL.exe in Windows Defender 4.10.209 for Windows 8.1,

In Windows 10 v1607 this is taskbar notification icon launcher for Windows Defender

So I think Microsoft's Developers might batter delete this value for Windows 8.1(also RT 8.1), or add this EXE file for Windows 8.1(also RT 8.1)

Why you should update:Older versions of of popular software such as Adobe (Acrobat Reader, Flash Player, Shockwave Player), Java, Windows Media Player, Web Browsers are vulnerable to exploits and should be kept updated. There are serious security issues with older versions which can increase the risk of system infection. Infections spread by malware writers and attackers exploiting unpatched security holes or vulnerabilities in older versions. Software applications are a favored target of malware writers who continue to exploit coding and design vulnerabilities with increasing aggressiveness.The majority of computers get infected from visiting a specially crafted webpage that exploits one or multiple software vulnerabilities. It could be by clicking a link within an email or simply browsing the net, and it happens silently without any user interaction whatsoever.Web ExploitsExploit kits are a type of malicious toolkit used to exploit security holes found in software applications...for the purpose of spreading malware.

Hi,
Just been informed of new April updates. I ignored the one that is about Win 10 (664), and chose to down load the April Security one and the Malicious software tool one. The software tool one worked but I can't get the April Security one. I have rebooted and tried again and it will not download. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks,

Hi,

Does Windows 10 now manages all the security updates for Adobe Flash player?
I noticed that on the updates history list it shows Adobe Flash player updates.

Is this true?

Thanks

A:Windows 10 manages security updates for Adobe Flash player?

Yeah, it takes care of the flash through windows update, it did that in win 8 too.

Just for Edge and IE, if you have other browsers those are updated separately.
