Windows update KB4467684 breaks UI? Server 2016

Q: Windows update KB4467684 breaks UI? Server 2016

I've recently installed KB4467864 on my 2016 Datacenter SQL server and now when I try to login it just goes black. No GUI no errors. I've rebooted, I've tried safe mode, I've cold powered down and booted up and nothing fixes this. This is my 2nd server 2016
SQL server VM I've installed it on and both have the same issues. I have a Server 2016 datacenter SQL box that I hadn't installed this on yet and it works just fine. Last update it has is KB4467691.

Anyone else seeing this? Or what else can I do to fix it? I've even tried stopping SQL server and agent to see if that would do it, but no difference. Please help I do not want to rebuild this SQL box. Thankfully its not quite in production yet but this
will put us behind if I have to redo the OS.

Thank you!

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.)

up until windows preview build 14986, the pcie driver "Mobile 6th Generation Intel(R) Processor Family I/O PCI Express Root Port #5 - 9D14" (v10.1.1.27) correctly detects the "Standard NVM Express Controller" storage controller and the Toshiba THNSN5512GPU7 NVMe disk attached to it. starting with windows preview build 15002 (and 15007), the included pcie driver has troubles detecting the storage controller - during bootup, it is detected 4 times, with each time on a different device id. subsequently, the drive is also added 4 times, resulting in boot controller errors & timeouts and failed sleep mode/shutdowns. the included chipset driver in these latest builds seem to have been bumped to v10.1.1.33. the problem can easily be replicated by using unmodified recovery boot usb sticks made from the official isos, and then checking in a recovery console. it is thus not related to anything installed in my system.

Hi all, really hoping for some help.

I have been trying to set up my older (2008) laptop with a clean install of windows 7 ultimate / 32 bit.
The reason to do this is because I was given a SSD drive and wanted to set up a 100% fresh system.
This laptop was before running just fine on the same windows version, but from a HDD.

My problem is this: I run a new setup for windows, no problems. I run windows update and it starts with updating to a new update agent Version 7.6.7600.256. No problems, I receive some updates including SP1. After installing SP1 I get the mandatory update to update to Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 and windows update just breaks. When I start it just searches for updates forever but never finds any.(after hours)

Now, my PC is running the same windows version and updates just fine. Also, I have tried to do clean installs on several systems and they ALL have the exact same problem. I even did installs on all these systems with different W7 versions (Home and PRO) and still the exact same problem, as soon as Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 gets installed it all grinds to a halt.

I have tried all kinds of solutions I found on the internet including a repair tool from tweaking.com (Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free/Pro) which combines most solutions suggested like disk and file system checks. I also changed DNS settings to the Google DNS and of course tried the MS Fix it tool and also ran CCCleaner. I have tried so many things I don't even remember them all.

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

I am volunteering my time to a local fire department and they just received two laptops from Dell today. They are both Vostros with i3 processors and Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. I took them and am cleaning them up from the "trial" and "bloatware" that is on them. I found the Windows update failed with update Error 80072ee2.

Here is what fixed it:

I went into the registry and found:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001

I deleted the entry for UseWUServer (at first I just tried setting it to 0, but did not resolve the problem)and restarted the system. Now the updates work just fine.

Looks like Trendmicro isn't fully uninstalling the software!

2017-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4016871)

This update makes it so my PC will NOT be able to connect to the internet.
Some of you may have seen my old post why I couldn't connect to the internet no matter what I did...
I had Factory Reset and what not.

So, I had the problem happen to me again, but I noticed my PC updated when I was out for the day, and came back after a long day to see my PC was at the sign in screen and my network was unable to connect to the internet again. I was quite upset at this, looked around in my PC, factory reset it again and then thought, "Maybe it updated" and what do you know?... I find this update.

So, either something in my PC does not agree to this Window's update, or the update itself is faulty. I do not know why, and my PC keeps trying to force this update after shutdown/scheduled install.

Anyone know what's up or how to stop the force update?

I am installing Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 on different models of laptops after being wiped clean.

If I install Windows 8.1 and run Sysprep / Generalize / Shutdown, it works fine.

However, I have tried running all Windows updates (220+ updates).  I then attempted to run Sysprep / Generalize / Shutdown.  After a while, it displays a message that 'A fatal error occurred while trying to Sysprep the machine'.

I have looked at numerous articles about the SkipRearm issues and unattend.xml file [ not using one ] with the register key value changes, etc.  None of the articles have fixed the issue.  Apparently, one of the recent Microsoft updates 'breaks'
Sysprep.  However, I am pressed for time on these images and do not have time to do process of elimination to figure out which one it is.

I have a recent home-build computer using an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard and AMD FX8350 that replaced a dual Xeon motherboard based home build from 2007 that died. It has a RealTek ALC892 on-board audio chipset and it was great for about a week until Monday, when it died after rebooting for Windows Update. A headset was plugged in, and the RealTek HD Audio Manager, which opens when you plug or unplug something to do with sound, went into a loop where it announced that I had plugged in headphones, then plugged in a microphone, then unplugged headphones, then unplugged microphone, which repeated until I unplugged the headset. The computer now produces no sound.

During boot before the sound drivers are installed, occasional clicks and bumps are barely audible from the speakers. When the audio driver loads, there is a quiet click and they grow silent. Unfortunately, they remain silent, no matter what I do (see below). Right-clicking on the audio icon in the taskbar and selecting "Playback devices" produces a screen that shows the speakers as selected as default, and selecting that enables a pushbutton that produces a screen in which the speakers can be tested. Until Windows Update broke the RealTek audio, the test sounds came through the speakers or headphones. Now, only silence. The bar graph of audio output shows that the software is producing the waveforms but they are not coming out the audio jacks anymore. The Windows "Troubleshoot Audio ... Read more

A:Windows Update Breaks RealTek Audio

I can't say I've seen this or seen it "a lot" and I've been working this forum for a while and worked the Dell forum for 10 years.

I have RealTek on both a Gigabyte Z77 motherboard (with an i7 3770 CPU) and an ASUS Z77 motherboard (with an i5 3550 CPU) and the sound has worked OK on both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8/8.1 as both systems have dual boot. Both systems are up to date with Windows updates.

I can't say about all of your software and Windows 8.1. I do know you need the latest version of Aconis, older versions do not work with Win 8 (I used to use Acronis and went to Macrium Reflect). I have Office 2003 and its not supposed to work on Win 8/8.1 but it works OK. I have the latest Nero and it is no problem. I have a (home) recording studio and all my software (I use Sonar) and all my hardware devices work the same in 'Win 7 and Win 8.

Back to your sound problem. The first suggestion is to reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers. The chipset drivers identify (define) all the devices on the motherboard. They are key to the on-board audio working correctly, although other problems can also cause sound device problems. But, I would, as a first step, reinstall the chipset drivers.

The recent Windows Update on Jan 8, 2019 breaks our POS Program Using MS Jet 4.0 affecting hundreds of our customers with thousands of computers. It has affected everyone running
XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10 as well as Server.



This update contains a "security update for MS Jet 4.0" but doesn't seem to replace the MSJET40.DLL. Users of our application get "Unrecognized Database Format" errors when accessing files through our program. Rewriting the entire
application to use MS Ace or something else then deploying to thousands of computers is not a viable solution.

Removing the Security Update for Microsoft Windows or the Monthly Rollup always repairs the issue. The problem is that Windows 10 users are unable to turn off updates and others who forget to are right back where they started when the update returns.

1. This issue may occur when you are using proxy sever or router : I don't use a proxy server. I checked and checked. So this is really not what broke Windows update.

2. You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates : Nope. I'm always connected. Not this too.

3. It might also mean that a program running on your computer is preventing Windows Update Services from accessing the Internet. Programs that might do this include firewalls, antispyware software, web accelerators, Internet security or antivirus programs, or proxy servers : This has to be it! But the only program that I have installed right now is Google Chrome, CCleaner, Picasa, K-lite Mega Codec pack, AND Office 2010. That's it.

My wifi suddenly stopped working on December 9 following a Windows 10 Update. Device Manager says that a working driver is installed for the device, but Network Connections says I have NO wifi device.  The airplane mode switch allows me to turn Bluetooth on and off, but has no switch for wifi.
I rolled back the Windows Updates to November, and my wifi reappeared and worked fine.  Unfortunately, after 10 minutes it vanished again.  I soon realized that WIndows Update had automatically installed the December update again and re-broken my wifi!  I repeated this cycle a few times, as there is no user interface for telling WIndows Update to not install things.
In the end, I went to Services and disabled the Windows Update Service.  Done.  Now my wifi works, and it stays fixed.
This is not a satisfying solution, as it means that I will NEVER run Windows Update again.  At least not until I turn the service back on.  But when will I know it is safe??  Do I have to try every month after each Windows 10 Update is released?  Ugh.

So my computer recently did an automatic update, but when it started back up it was completely impossible to connect to any network. The pre-bundled software that came with my wi-fi adapter crashed to desktop whenever it started up (manually started or on computer startup). I also could not access adapter settings in the Windows control panel. It would not even open the window for it. So I went into settings and went back to the previous update and the problem went away, but now it keeps reinstalling this update every time i restart my computer.

My current thoughts and I might be wrong:
-The update wasn't downloaded properly and it keeps reinstalling from a broken cache. (Are windows updates cached on my PC?)
-The update is bugged and I need to find out how to disable automatic updates until this is resolved.
-Nothing is wrong with the update, it just doesn't like my current configurations.

I was just reading my daily news feeds and came across a story on Ars Technica that mentioned the January Reliability and Stability update for Windows 7 (KB977074) actually causing more stability and reliability problems then it solves. I went digging, and sure enough, there are multiple reports on the MS Technet forums about this update. In one case, the post marked as an answer by a MS moderator states to hide this update for the time being.http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums...3e-bcac1ac94e57In some cases, the update will not install, randomly freezing upon restart after the initial install, never actually completing and forcing the computer to revert to before it was installed. In other cases, it causes some performance issues, like certain programs not shutting down properly and causing the system to fail to power down at shut down.So in short, if you haven't installed this one yet, you may want to refrain from doing it until a new reliability and stability update is issued from MS.

The KB3102812 is now installed as Important update in November 2015 patch tuesday. I noticed that after the KB is installed any
manual Windows Update process lacks "Installing updates" stage in user interface. If affects both classic desktop Control Panel - Windows Update user interface and modern PC Settings one.

Before the KB update manual windows update behaves as expected:
1. Check for updates ... searching ... if any, you can select stem
2. Install button
3. Reports Downloading updates stage
4. Reports Preparing to install stage
5. Reports Installing updates stage
6. Reports Done

After the KB3102812 is installed the stage 5 no longer exists. It installs updates correctly (typically Windows Defender definitions) but still reports "Preparing to install" stage and after a while "Done" stage. I can reproduce it on
two different Windows 8.1 machines. Removing the KB3102812 solves the issue and brings back expected behavior.

I tried to add the feature via the server manager but it ended with code 0x80070002. I did have to provide a path to the sources\sxs folder for the cab file which I expected but that didn't help.I tried using the DISM powershell command to add the feature, both using the source location and also using /All so that it downloads the files from Windows Update. The end result was the same as #1 attempt - 0x80070002.I made sure all updates for the OS have been applied and that updates for 'other Microsoft products' was checked. this made no change in the error.I checked the installed packages via powershell and it shows 3.5 as removed, which again is expected for Server 2016 as they intentionally left it out but provided the cab file in the install media.I have executed a clean sfc /scannow with no errorsI have run a clean dism package commandI have tried installing under a fresh admin user profileI have researched for around 3 hours on the forums so I look forward to the various input
I have uploaded both the DISM and CBS logs. I started fresh with both logs so they contain only details related to a single attempt t install via the server manager.

I read that MBSA (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/mbsa-removal-and-guidance) only supports up to Windows Server 2012R2.
Is there any tools that support Windows Server 2016 ?
I used WUA and it can't run on some of the computer.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/aa387290(v=vs.85)
Then, explore Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit 1.0 but lack of instruction. Not sure it can do the job or not.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55319
Do you have any recommendation on how I can get started ? Thanks.

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

Thanks in advance for the help

The KB3102812 is now installed as Important update in November 2015 patch tuesday. I noticed that after the KB is installed any
manual Windows Update process lacks "Installing updates" stage in user interface. If affects both classic desktop Control Panel - Windows Update user interface and modern PC Settings one.

Before the KB update manual windows update behaves as expected:
1. Check for updates ... searching ... if any, you can select stem
2. Install button
3. Reports Downloading updates stage
4. Reports Preparing to install stage
5. Reports Installing updates stage
6. Reports Done

After the KB3102812 is installed the stage 5 no longer exists. It installs updates correctly (typically Windows Defender definitions) but still reports "Preparing to install" stage and after a while "Done" stage. I can reproduce it on
two different Windows 8.1 machines. Removing the KB3102812 solves the issue and brings back expected behavior.

All was well until creator update hit. My desktop icons do not display and there is only one screen identified as 1|2. Turns out I don't NEED the port replicator on this new laptop - I have enough ports on it to make it all wok so I want to get rid of the replicator. I uninstalled the software (displayLink and the HP port replicator stuff) and I still have this nonsense:I have also tried to create a new item with the right click menu and it got created because it is on the desktop  but nothing is showing on my desktop on the screen.I think that there is some problem with display mapping and the default desktop.How do I get all this straighened out?

Hello, I'll start off by saying that this question is unlikely to be answered and will probably make most wonder why I'd even post it but I'll explain why.

So the issue is that I need to patch a decent amount of Windows 7 PC's with a large amount of updates (295, except not every PC needs every patch, it's just an SCCM update group that contains them all). I've inherited this issue in case anyone asks why I
have so many outstanding patches.
I deployed all the required ones to my PC as a test and when I logged back on, Libraries was broken. By broken I mean there was now a libraries icon on my desktop (maybe it was there before but it at least moved to make me notice it) and the default libraries
were gone. The libraries folder was empty. I can create new libraries manually but clicking 'Restore default libraries' does nothing.

The other issue is that if I try to create any new folder at a network location or locally (not in libraries, this is separate), and give it a name, an error appears saying "Could not find this item. This is no longer located at <location>. Verify
the items location and try again". If you click try again, the folder is created with the name. If you click cancel, the folder is created but is called 'New Folder'. </location>
<location>These 2 results did not please me so I deployed to another PC as a test and got the exact same result. Great, so it will more than likely happen to all PC's. I've since found out a ... Read more

I am currently having an issue were Windows 7 computers can not connect to Server 2016 (domain). Right away I get a "The logon attempt failed".
I know that user information is correct, because I can connect using any Windows 10 computer. I have tried this from multiple Windows 7 computers, they all give the same error. I don't have any problems at all with Windows 10.

So, this seems to be isolated to Windows 7.
Has anyone seen this or know how to get around this issue?

I appreciate your help!

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

Allright, I've been banging my head all morning on this wonderful monday mystery. We have got T460s i5 6200u specced machines for our clients that typically need docks, either the Pro or Ultra's.  We have had no issues with monitor output on the docks with Windows 10 enterprise 64bit with Anniversary. However, we are now starting to roll out our the imagages on the T460s laptops with  KMS server Enterprise Windows 10 with Creator Update. Since then, I have not been able to get any new T460s to reliably output via VGA, Displayport or DVI through an ultra or pro dock.  With the laptop lid closed and with full power running, and just the LCD laptop screen off, the docks refused to output to any monitor. Only when you slightly open the lid will the monitor output on the docks "wake up" finally up.  Monitor output does work if you have the laptop lid open when docking but neither are a real good solution The lenovo update has been run and  everything is updated included dock firmware.  I've disabled sleep mode just to make this easier with docking and undocking

Historically I've used the following syntax with NetMon to determine which switch/switchport each of my server interfaces are connected to: 

nmcap.exe /network "<interfacename>" /DisableLocalOnly /capture SNAP.EtherType == 0x2000 /StopWhen /TimeAfter 2 min /file "<filename>.cap"

With MMA, I can just do a filter for LLDP, and get the same information, at least on my Windows 10 laptop that is.  When I run a capture either locally on a Windows 2016 server, or remotely against
a Windows 2016 server there are no LLDP packets captured.

Am I doing something wrong?
