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.)

A:Microsoft releases critical security patch for Windows

"Gee Wally, I didn't think Windows 10 would ever need any security patches because everybody is always screaming how secure it is already. What's going on Wally?".

"You believed what Microsoft said Beaver. That was your first mistake".

Same ole whack-a-mole game. No reason to move off Windows 7 yet that I can see.

In fact, if you think about it, the more popular post "Windows 7" operating systems become the more likely they are to be the main targets of hackers. Which means less attacks on older operating systems which means, older operating systems will be more secure by default. Because nobody is concerned about them anymore. Ah, I can sleep soundly tonight.

Now...where were those people calling for the death of Adobe Flash again?
Do we call for the death of Windows 10 now? Or do you wanna wait a month until the next security breach is discovered?

I need some major help with the latest Windows Update (the set of patches that came out this Tuesday to help with the security issues), I think it is causing issues for my laptop PC. I'm not computer illiterate but I'mdefinitely nothing more than a beginner and this is starting to make me panic a little ^_^;

My laptop has been having major Startup and boot issues since the update. My laptop freezes and goes to a white-grey screen. The computer does start up - ie: the screen comes on (white screen, unless I am lucky enough to get a boot screen for a moment) the fans run, but it takes several attempts at turning it on and off again, and hitting either F12 or F8 (still not sure which one is the one that works) to get to a screen that allows me to repair the Startup and go back to a retore point. The last time this happened it also beeped at me however I would not be able to tell you what the code sounded like (I...panicked somewhat).

However, the restore point was made just after Windows downloaded the updates onto my comouter (I had automatic updates on), and I cannot shut down without my computer wanting to install the updates. So I'm stuck in an endless cycle of downloading these updates, then being forced to restore.

Can anyone help with either finding a way to stop my laptop installing these updates, or does anyone know a way to troubleshoot the updates themselves?

Microsoft Announces Patch for Critical Windows 10 Anniversary Update Bug

Soon after Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update on August 2, the firm started getting reports of a potential bug that might impact partitions on computers that upgrade to the new version.

Specifically, users were complaining that after installing the Anniversary Update, some of their partitions were no longer visible in Windows 10, making it impossible to access data that was stored here.

Without a doubt, many thought their data was gone, but Microsoft rushed to acknowledge the bug shortly after that, explaining that it was working on a fix, and no files were lost despite the fact that partitions were no longer visible.

And recently, Microsoft announced that a patch was ready, and it would release it to users as part of the next Windows update patch, without actually providing specifics on when exactly this is scheduled to take place.

?Thanks for everyone?s input and patience. Microsoft is planning to release a fix to address the majority of the misidentified partitions in an upcoming Windows Update,? a company engineer said.

Possibly releasing to insiders first
Furthermore, this message doesn?t state whether Windows insiders would get it first or not, but the chances are that they will given the fact the original post also highlights the steps necessary to get updates as part of the Windows Insider program.

I run a very tight ship thanks to you folks and I keep a regular check on my services page to make sure nothing is starting that shouldn't. Consequently, although I don't know what half of them do, I am aware of most of the services I have starting automatically and manually. Today, when I checked, I discovered stuff has been starting manually that hadn't been in the recent past; at least I think this is the case. So my question is: has anything happened with this last critical update (13/12/13) that might cause extra services to start manually without my participation.

A:latest Windows critical update issue

A lot of things will cause services to start when in 'manual start' mode - and may have nothing whatever to do with updates.
There is a misapprehension that this setting means that the service will only start when the user requests it - this is not true. It simply means that the service doesn't start until something else triggers it.

Please give examples where the behaviour you believe has changed.

Hello, Windows 7 Forums.

I was actually sitting down to write a scathing email to Microsoft concerning their Updates ruining my computer and putting my university work in severe jeopardy, but then I though "No, scathing emails are unbecoming and unproductive. I'll see if I can get help on these forusm instead."

So, a couple of weekends ago, my computer went bonkers.

I am a 3D graphics students, with a constant workflow, so almost every night I'll have all three of Photoshop, Autodesk Maya and VLC open, no problems, computer chugging along fine. This night, however, was different - even attempting to have all three programs open made the computer slow down to within an inch of its life, all three of them freezing. I am computer savvy, but not to the extent of knowing the deeper recesses of software and hardware workings. I figured, 'the cpu is a little outdated, I've been working it very hard lately, and I just installed a new graphics card - I'll turn off for the night, and see if something went wrong tomorrow.'

The next day, I had the same problem. svchost.exe was chewing up all the CPU in it's path. Ontop of that, opening any one of Photoshop, Maya or VLC used an impossibly massive chunk of CPU that it never normally needed to run. I checked the graphics driver was all fine, it was. I tried to do a System Restore, it was turned off. At this point, I was completely incabable of doing my work. The lag was impossible to work with concerning the pograms I use. E... Read more

A:Massive CPU problem upon installing latest Windows Critical Update.

Hello and welcome Aolani!

Yes, it is generally a good idea to keep your windows updated BUT, if you're handling a system that is mission critical (e.g. for sensitive, important workflows etc), it's better to manually update your windows and just apply one update at a time from the Windows Update menu... after backing up your important data and system state..

In general, critical updates from Microsoft should be safe to apply but there have been documented cases of them bricking certain systems/configurations for no apparent reason what so ever.. It can be a crapshoot sometimes, and it often involved hotfixes from MS themselves to fix those issues... (happened to me many moons ago... fortunately reverting using a system restore solved the issue)

It is likely that in the future you might have to update your Windows with a service pack, but when you have to cross that bridge, ensure that you've got a working system backed up BEFORE applying it.. that's like a the 1st rule of Computing...

So to recap; do not apply all updates en masse lest your system gets ruined like you describe.. even more so when you rely on it for very very important tasks....

P.S. That's a rather harrowing tale that you told, but it is the lessons we learn through pain and anguish that we never forget...

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 i... Read more

I just installed an XP update KB980182 which is supposed to fix some security issues with Internet Explorer.

Ever since, I've been having trouble with my internet. I don't use IE 7 unless I'm installing updates for Microsoft products or if a site requires it. I use Firefox. A few odd things that happened so far is as follows:

I opened some email in Yahoo (using Firefox) and there was no message, only the heading and blank space. I tried another email and the same situation. I restarted my computer and could read the messages. Then it started up again in another email account.

I got an error message about getting signed out of Yahoo chat because sign in was from another computer. Something like that. I don't ever chat, and I don't even have Messenger installed on this computer.

When I went to read a Microsoft page (using IE) about this very update, the browser froze up.

What's going on? What do I do? As soon as I post this, I will do a complete scan with my AV, and Malwarebytes, too.

Please advise next step.

A:Problems with XP Security Patch

I installed KB980182 yesterday; my typical browser is IE8.

After the mandatory post-installation reboot, I experienced a BSOD within 10 minutes of using IE8. I booted again, and began using IE8 again, only to have another BSOD happen in under 5 minutes - at which point I immediately uninstalled KB980182 and added it to the "do not install" list that Automatic Updates allows.

Since I uninstalled KB980182, I have had no problems with IE8.

Here's another reason to upgrade that old Windows XP PC: Microsoft has now stopped providing antivirus signatures for the out-of-support operating system.Even after support for the venerable OS ended in April last year, Microsoft continued to provide its malicious software removal tool and updates to Microsoft Security Essentials - that is, until yesterday.It has not been possible to download Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows XP since the end of support, but PCs with it already installed have been receiving anti-malware signature updates for the last 16 months. Because the malicious software removal tool is connected with the company's anti-malware engine and signatures, that has also remained working.Windows XP security just got worse again

A:"Windows XP security just got worse again", via ZDNet

Yes, indeed. All the companies that still run Windows XP, especially if they have a peer-to-peer network, should definitely upgrade.

Read more: 360 Total Security Anti-virus first impressions: Refreshingly subtle but thorough | ZDNet

While this is not a formal review, I have to admit that I like 360. It's subtle. It's quiet. It seems to do what it claims. I don't have any complaints about false positives or resource hogging and it doesn't seem to get in the way of actually working like some anti-malware programs do. I hate having to acknowledge every single thing I ever click on. It's the uber security settings on some of these things that cause people to bypass security altogether.

I'll have to provide you with an update after a few months of working with 360 before I can give a definitive blessing, but preliminary tests have been positive.Click to expand...

I have currently hit a brick wall, so to speak, and am hoping someone here can help me. I installed the Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7, 64-Bit (KB4093118), and now we are getting a BSOD with the 0x0000007e error; beneath that it says iusb3xhc.sys.
And it stays looped in a startup-BSOD-restart-BSOD cycle. Booting into Safe Mode doesn?t work (also goes to this same BSOD). It only happens when we try to update with the monthly Windows security roll-up update.
We can reset the computer to an earlier Windows restore point without a problem. We updated the USB 3.0 and Chipset Drivers as per the motherboard manufacturer ASRock, but the error persisted.
OS: Win 7 64bit SP1 Build 7601 8:00 Gb RAM Processor:
BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. P1.20A
Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Pro4 (2 PCI, 2 PCI-E x1, 2 PCI-E x16, 1 M.2, 4 DDR3 DIMM, Audio, Video, Gigabit LAN)
Motherboard Chipset: Intel Wildcat Point Z97, Intel Haswell
Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this? I am at a loss.

So after eight hours of in vain attempts to remove the newest version of the Windows Security Center malware from my computer, it's finally gone. However, there seem to be some remaining problems associated with it or with the process of removing it.

1) The blue screen of death will somewhat frequently pop up, often for no apparent reason.

2) I still can't connect to the internet. About 75% of the times I open Google Chrome, Firefox, or (god forbid) Internet Explorer, they completely freeze my computer and I have to restart it.

To clarify, I'm almost certain that all of the malware is completely removed from my computer. I did several virus scans using Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes (which I have since removed from my computer) and I've deleted everything related to the problem. I don't know if it's relevant, but after I removed everything I still wasn't able to access my task manager... that problem has since been fixed, though.

I don't think there are any other symptoms. Any other info I need to provide? Help!
