Preferred Solution: Information About Upcoming "Patch 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.)

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.

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

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?

HI.

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...!

Regards

Stewart

Windows 7 Ultimate with ESU installed and activated/licensed as shown by slmgr /dlv, but when I install an ESU patch (i.e. KB4550964), it fails with the CBS logging "NO ESU KEY FOUND." Should note that I've tried two separate ESU keys now. I re-installed
the Windows OS key and the ESU key and activated with VAMT and tried MS activation servers as well, but neither helped. Slmgr says everything is licensed i.e. "License Status: Licensed" on both ESU and OS keys. Windows

Sometimes when I try to connect to a wifi network, i enter my username/password, it tries to connect for a while then I get the same popup asking me to enter my user credentials...again.
There is never any reason specified for why I am being asked to re-enter my user credentials.
This is extremely annoying. How can I troubleshoot this if Windows does not tell me why?

Could anyone explain the differences to me.
Also, does anyone know a good piece of virus toolkit that can actually remove them as well as prevent them?

T.I.A.
 

A:Difference between a "virus removal tool" and a "patch"?

A virus removal tool removes the virus from your computer meaning that the file is already on your system and running, so it stops it from running and removes the file. A patch however is used to prevent bad things from being installed, usually released when big worms hit, like SoBig, MSBlast, CodeRED...etc...So patches are to prevent and removal tools are to remove files already installed.

Tried to mark them hidden, but it won't let me. Anyone have a clue as to why they would suddenly unhide themselves and not allow me to hide them again? This is on XP Pro with no service pack1 installed. Just bugs me they did that all of the sudden. Haven't installed anything recently except Paint Shop Pro 7 and Easy CD Creator 5.2 plus the update patch to 5.3.

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.

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".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

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:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:

We have a Windows 2016 Server and are preparing it as an image to stand up other web servers. We are using Nessus professional for scanning, which is detecting critical errors for various versions of the Microsoft.NET Framework. The scan results specifically
state that none of the versions of "System.Web.Extensions.dll" under C:\Windows\WinSxs have been patched. Another critical error under the same Microsoft.NET Framework version is "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\system.dll has
not been patched".

So this last Tuesday (7/20/10) WoW was down for some maintnence. My friends and I were bored so we decided to screw around on a Private Server for a while until WoW was back up. Problem is, when i came back to play normal WoW I tried to log in and got a "Patch Required" message telling me I would have to restart WoW to download the patch. When I clicked the restard button below i got an error message saying "Failed to apply patch. Please try again later. If problem persists, you may have to reinstall the game or contact technicall support." Since than I have reinstalled WoW twice with my WOTLK disc and have called tech support twice as well. I feel like I have tried everything but I keep getting the same error message.

Please help in any way you can! Thank you!
 

A:World of Warcraft - "Failed to apply patch" error

I'm going assume you didn't tell tech support you were on a private server. Some of the private servers have their own wow.exe program. Did you delete that(if you downloaded one)?

Did you uninstall the game first or try to reinstall over the old files? If you tried to reinstall over the old files, uninstall the game then delete the directory and then reinstall it.

Just for giggles, check the realmslist.wtf file located World of Warcraft\Data\enUS and post what is in it.

Over time here we've learned that the most fatal and irreparable cause of Win7 failure to boot is labeled by Startup Repair as a bad patch. As it's often reported by OP as having been Windows Update or a driver just installed I'm wondering if there is some last-resort surgery that can be done when all other known repairs solutions fail.

I am testing right now if all recent content of System32/drivers can be backed up and then deleted in Windows Recovery console using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console. If the fatal driver is gone my thinking is that Win7 might start and reload all drivers from Driver Store.

I'd also like to test if recently installed Updates can be backed up and deleted from their install location similarly using a boot disk. I realize this is fraught with danger and merely is experimental to save an installation in which all else has been tried and hope lost.

Can any Updates experts suggest where exactly to look and what to include to get the latest Updates? Any predictions on efficacy, or other ideas to save installs that won't boot on this error?

A:Boot failure due to "bad patch" - need fix collaborators

Beware of relying on file dates for anything in the System32 structure - the apparent dates may be vastly different from the installed dates, and some of the files are dynamic as well.

If the problem is truly 'failed updates' check the softwaredistribution\ folders to see what's there - it should give some clues, and the dates will be more reliable.

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.
