Possible inaccuracy in latest patch Tuesday release found on online portal

Q: Possible inaccuracy in latest patch Tuesday release found on online portal

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

Preferred Solution: Possible inaccuracy in latest patch Tuesday release found on online portal

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.)

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Am I mistaken or has the Windows EULA always popped-up when downloading and installing the latest update to the Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830).

​First up is build 15063.540, which is available for users with the Creators Update installed on their PCs and phones. You can install it manually here. Here's what's new:

Addressed issue where the policies provisioned using Mobile Device Management (MDM) should take precedence over policies set by provisioning packages.
Addressed issue where the Site to Zone Assignment List group policy (GPO) was not set on machines when it was enabled.
Addressed issue where the AppLocker rules wizard crashes when selecting accounts.
Addressed issue where the primary computer relationship is not determined when you have a disjoint NetBIOS domain name for your DNS Name. This prevents folder redirection and roaming profiles from successfully blocking your profile or redirects folders to a non-primary computer.

It's Wednesday morning here. I spent last night in Vista after installing Windows Update packages.
This morning I've been trying to boot in W7 (7057) and I keep getting a BSOD.
On my first attempt everything seemed fine but I got a restart to load security patch message from Kaspersky so I clicked restart now.
Since then I've had BSODs every time (about 8 attempts)
I've tried Safe Mode but can't find what's wrong other than superfetch and security center are not starting (?)
I have EVGA precision running at startup and it seems to get to the point where that would normally request permission and crash.
In other words it gets past the Welcome screen, I see my wallpaper and then BSOD.
Could it be the Windows Updates I installed last night?
It's been working like a dream before that.
Any help would be appreciated, John

Just in case it helps anyone else.

I have all my PC's & Laptop set to Auto update, and I take all patches.

Normally I have no problems at all.

This last Patch Tuesday I did my main computer (AMD 64bit) and it failed so I had to use the Windows 8 repair facility it then worked fine.

I then did my wifes laptop no problems at all.

I did my MediaPC (Intel core 2 32bit) and that was a mess so it had to be rebuilt. one possible problem was this PC is only switched on when I want to watch something from the WEB on the TV. so its updates may have bunched up. When it got into the updates I left it overnight and it was still going in the morning (I think waiting for something, the HDD heartbeat flashing once a second) thinking it must be in a deadly embrace I restarted expecting to have to repair, but did not get the option.

In the end I had to do a complete rebuild, then update.

It works fine again now but it cost me 2-3 days, which these days is not acceptable.

I was NOT given the option to restore nor any other simple method...!

I am inquiring if any members have experienced this, I ran these updates from 7:55pm to 8:22pm EDT this evening 10-10-12.

I have Windows set to check, but let me decide.

For my particular setup I received 14 updates:
Four for Security.
Nine for a general update.
One for the Malicious Software Removal Tool.

The four started to download then stopped, and restarted the download.
The installation went okay.

The nine did the same thing, except for the installation phase. It stopped, re-started the download then restarted the installation twice.
After the second installation phase it concluded successfully.

When I clicked OK on the one to start its download it went right to installation.

As an afterthought I forced a check for any more updates, and a MSE showed up. With my fios (25/10) it took over a minute for 238KB, went to install, and that took longer than usual.

All updates showed they installed successfully.

Our machine seems to be running okay, and all other web-sites that are visited snap to completion.

Could this be a situation on MS's update server, our machine, our ISP?
As an aside, before these 14 showed up I was notified that I had a Silverlight update. it was the same one I hid several months ago. When I tried to hide it again it cleared my check-mark, and reverted to the original notification.
I did this twice.
