Preferred Solution: Updates Released For May 2017 "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.)

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?

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.

​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.
Addressed issue where an access violation in the Mobile Device Manager Enterprise feature causes stop errors.
Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Server, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Windows Subsystem for Linux, Windows shell, Common Log File System Driver, Internet Explorer, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.
Obviously, there aren't a lot of fixes for version 1703, as it received an update just a week ago. There is one known issue to be aware of though:

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.

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

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.

Hi!

Here's my post - after I installed all the Windows updates on 2/13, we starting getting intermittent freezing of the applications and operating system (Windows 7 32 bit). After a while, trying to open an application returns "not enough system resources to complete the requested operation." IE, etc. I also cannot shut down the computer. Once I do a hard re-start, it all comes back until it locks up again. I increased the virtual memory capacity. System restore fails each time after the updates on 2/13.

Any suggestions would be great!

thanks so much!

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

It's been a month since my laptop gone wrong. All programs doesn't run properly, and stop working many times. Media Player, Office, Internet explorer, all stop working frequently, and I have to wait ten second until five minutes to continue my work.

Two days ago I noticed that when I downloaded windows update, the updates wasn't saved in OS folder like it used to be. New folders named like "1ee10074..." appeared in my hard disk. I realized that the problems begin when I found new folder like this in my hard disk, and now the problems is getting worst after updates. I thought my "OS" was full, but the indicator say "11.8 GB free of 58.5 GB".

I can't delete or move the folder without permission, and try to copy them to "OS". Now each time I open a file, two windows are opened, one is my opened file and the other is blank window.

I don't have enough knowledge about computer. Can anyone help me, please?

A:How to fix "not responding" problem in all programs and "lost updates"

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

That temp file that you mentioned, is it in the root of the system drive?
In other words is it located here: C:\1ee10074....

If that is where it is, then it could be from a .NET update. They do not always remove that randomly named folder. Don't delete it just yet, go inside of it (say continue to the permissions security pop ups). If you find several folders with 4 numbers for the name, then it is probably from an update. Those numbered folders are for different languages. You can delete the folder if you want or just leave it. The folder is not the cause of your problems.

Note: I can't take any screen shots because my problematic laptop won't even start up fully.

So as a bit of background, my 6-year-old Toshiba A505-S6005 laptop battery has been horrible for ages (as in my laptop MUST be plugged in at all times or else it will immediately spontaneously turn off without a proper shut-down. It also spontaneously turns off it it overheats or starts working too hard or something), so I don't use it very much - but it's where I keep all my music and movies, and I've been gradually transferring these files to other devices, which is why I still use it occasionally...

Anyway, 2 nights ago, I downloaded and installed updates, and after taking a while to install updates, it stayed on the "shutting down..." screen for a long time... And when I woke up the next morning, it was STILL on the "shutting down" screen - and it had been 8 hours by that point (I was actually very surprised that it hadn't spontaneously turned off overnight). So I did a force-turn-off because I thought it would start up ok.

Today, I turned on the computer figuring it would boot up ok. So we get to the start-up screen - it even spends a mere split second on the usual improper-shut-down-how-would-you-like-to-start-up screen (it usually spends 30 seconds on that screen) and it goes through "configuring updates," and this took a while, and then it went back to the "shutting down..." screen.

The update also installs an add-on for Internet Explorer and an extension for Mozilla Firefox, both without the user's permission. As you can see in the Windows Update screenshot above, Microsoft does not indicate that the update will install anything for either browser. It's also not really clear what the installed extension actually does.

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".

Hello to everyone. I have been using Windows Defender as my antivirus software for some time but i recently decided to switch into a better one so i installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2017. Even though the installation was successful and Kaspersky works fine with no issues, i have a strange problem. It seems that Windows Defender was not disabled "correctly". I dont know how else to describe it. I was still having its icon in the taskbar, with a red indication saying "in danger" (or at least a similar one.i dont have an english version of windows so i m just translating what it was indicating). In order to get rid of it, i had to open the task manager and manually disable the windows defender notification from processes and startup tab. It doesnt seem to be running though because when i checked in Services, it was not activated and also in Windows Defender section in settings it says its disabled. Even though it is not running, Windows Update still detects virus definitions for Windows Defender and unsucessfully tries to install them every time it checks for updates. Has anyone faced this strange issue? How do i stop it?
