How to download and install the September 2017 security updates

windows security updates september 2017

Suggestion: Windows updates may backfire; they may introduce issues or even block the PC from booting or functioning properly. I suggest you create a backup of the system before you install updates.

Windows PCs are configured to download and install important updates -- like security updates -- automatically. This is not a real-time process though, and you may want to run a manual check for updates at times, or download updates manually to install them without direct connection to Microsoft's servers.

You may run a manual check for updates on Windows in the following way:

  • Select the Windows-key on the keyboard, type Windows Update, and select the Enter-key.
  • Windows may run a check automatically when the page opens, or after you click on the "check for updates" link or button.
  • Updates may be downloaded automatically if they are found, or only after you accept them.

You may download updates directly from Microsoft's Update Catalog website as well. The links are listed below:

Responses to Microsoft Security Updates September 2017 release

  1. Paul(us) September 12, 2017 at 8:49 pm #

    Thank you very much to Martin, that you have shown me the way through the maze of updates for the various systems with a steady hand, just like every month.
    I am also very pleased that you have been able to upload the Microsoft security update links in a spreadsheet for some time. It's so easy to get an overview of the 753 different updates (it's almost impossible to grasp how many of them are!).
    I find it a good addition to your page in specific cases and to get an overview.
    Hopefully, you will continue to be inspired down to the length of days to present this monk's work every month.

    Intruduces new bugs !

    • svim September 13, 2017 at 12:01 am #

      OK some people are averse to updating their stuff because of sentiments like that. It's not like that doesn't happen on occasion but that's really rare and most of these security updates are addressing real-world issues. If you are scared to apply updates because they might possibly 'introduce new bugs', for your own peace of mind you should give serious thought to avoid using any computer, or at least never allow your computer any online access.

      • ilev September 13, 2017 at 12:03 pm #

        I stopped updating Microsoft's update for my Windows 7, ~3 years ago.

      • kr September 14, 2017 at 1:03 pm #

        No, it's not really rare. The latest updates (September 2017) made my Internet Explorer so it can't be opened, and when I try to restore my computer to an earlier date, system restore can't find any hard drives on my computer. So my computer is now totally screwed up. And stuff like that has happened to my computers for years when I use automatic updates. The only "malicious user" that's ever gained access to my computer is MICROSOFT.

    • todd September 14, 2017 at 6:38 am #

      I have 2 Windows 10 computers that got this update, both now take about 8 min to login and display the desktop. work fine after i get logged in but it just displays a black screen for the first 8 min.

      • Ksuvi Khor September 25, 2017 at 3:57 pm #

        We are experiencing a similar issue in our organization. After installing KB4038777 on our HP 6200 desktop machines (running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit) our users are experiencing a blank screen with cursor for several minutes immediately after logging in, thus delaying their ability to log in and get to work. Removing KB4038777 and rebooting fixes this issue.

  4. AJ North September 13, 2017 at 12:00 am #

    Thank you for your September 2017 comprehensive update list, Martin!

    For those who install the Security Only Quality Update, should it not also include the "Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: September 12, 2017" (KB4036586)? (Catalog page: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/search.aspx?q=kb4036586 )

    Again, many thanks ― and take good care!

    With cordial regards,

    AJN

    Is there an update url link for IE11 Win x64.

  6. T J September 13, 2017 at 12:45 am #

    Martin, thank you for the work which you have done to design the spreadsheet.
    It is even more impressive that you built in links which take us directly to the relevant MS information bulletins.
    This saves a huge amount of time in searches :))

  7. PismoGizmo September 13, 2017 at 3:46 am #

    Please list the KB Number for IE 11 cummulative security only update for windows 7, I need the KB number for IE 11 each and every month and both you and woody need to list KB numbers for those that are doing the updates directly from microsoft's update catalog! And the KB number for IE 11 cummulative monthly update is not listed, and its hard to find that IE 11 cummulative sec update KB number each month. .

    I'd rather that updates be listed in outline form by OS version the OS listed as the outline header of say for example: Windows 7, then indent and list by KB Number and Include all the security only updates that fall under each respective version's heading( windows 8.1, windows 7, windows server versions, etc)

    So far I have only been updating the windows 7 monthly sec only "Quality" updates and the IE 11 cummulative security only updates, and no others directly from the windows/microsoft update catalog(since Oct of 2016), Have I been missing any other updates that may be necessary?

  8. Deo et Patriae September 13, 2017 at 6:20 am #

    I would have much respect after the fall creators update, stop releasing these major upgrades with added features and keep focusing only on bug, stability and efficiency fixing for at at least one year. Best would be two years, but we all know not gonna happen.

  9. leanon September 13, 2017 at 7:02 am #

    THANK YOU Kept getting network error on KB4038788 with windows update so followed your link and had that 935mb bad boy downloaded an installed in half the time those cumulative updates often take.

  10. leanon September 13, 2017 at 7:09 am #

    BTW anyone have problems with Edge browser after updating? Mine wouldnt load the first few times I tried and when it finally did ublock was disabled. Did disable a few network items near the bottom in about:flags which may or may not have fixed it, but it seem to have on this end.

    • Martin Brinkmann September 13, 2017 at 7:15 am #

      Edge auto-quits on one of my systems, but that has been the case for a couple of months. Cannot use the browser, repair not working.

    • Tom September 13, 2017 at 5:30 pm #

      Edge now has a random behavior - it feels like a hacked browser by it's own eginners... Firefox is now default on my system.

    • Matt M September 13, 2017 at 7:31 pm #

      Yeah I had the same problem and I'm seeing regular crashes with edge now. Exception code 0xc0000604.

    • John S September 14, 2017 at 1:40 pm #

      Yes, all three of my PC's had Edge issues after updates. Home page took forever to load and sometimes it just did not. Posted on Microsoft's forum but of course just got a bunch of canned troubleshooting replies. Too bad Edge is so difficult to uninstall or reset. I really didn't care to spend a lot of time trying to fix. Don't use Edge that much so I just used Firefox or Chrome. Some had issues with Internet Explorer too I guess so maybe related to the patches?

    • leanon September 17, 2017 at 9:25 am #

      Went back to about:flags an reenabled those 3 settings I had mentioned earlier with no ill affects so must had just been a coincidence.

      Can say uBO now seems to be working better after the update. In the past after opening Edge I would go right to uBO to check for filter updates, it would take on average 3 trys to get uBO to open but now maybe 1.01 :)

      Hope all the problems finding others dont find me (knocks on wood)

    There was this exploit called CVE-2017-8759 to which Microsoft claimed that customers who received automatic updates for their products are protected.

    Do we need to update .Net Framework?

    I have .Net Framework 4.6.1 but KB4040957 only prompts me to install .Net Framework 4.7.

  12. Franck September 13, 2017 at 11:16 am #

    Thank you so much for this awesome sum-up !

    A lot clearer and more informative than the MS shady pages !

  13. chesscanoe September 13, 2017 at 4:34 pm #

    FWIW. I received a Microsoft Security Notification 20 hours ago that said in part:
    "CVE-2017-8529

    - Title: CVE-2017-8529 | Microsoft Browser Information Disclosure
    Vulnerability
    - https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-us/security-guidance
    - Reason for Revision: To address known print regression issues
    customers may experience when printing from Internet Explorer
    or Microsoft Edge after installing any of the June security
    updates, monthly rollups, or IE cumulative updates, Microsoft has
    released the following September security updates: Internet
    Explorer Cumulative Update 4036586; Monthly Rollups 4038777,
    4038799, 4038792; Security Updates 4038781, 4038783, 4038782,
    and 4038788 for all affected editions of Microsoft Edge and
    Internet Explorer when installed on supported editions of Windows.
    Please note that with the installation of these updates, the
    solution to CVE-2017-8529 is turned off by default to help
    prevent the risk of further issues with print regressions, and
    must be activated via your Registry. To be fully protected from
    this vulnerability, please see the Update FAQ section for
    instructions to activate the solution.
    - Originally posted: June 13, 2017
    - Updated: September 12, 2017
    - CVE Severity Rating: Moderate
    - Version: 5.0 "

    It's not of concern to me, but may be for some.

    • Mike September 20, 2017 at 8:47 pm #

      After installing the necessary patches, the registry key they refer to (FEATURE_ENABLE_PRINT_INFO_DISCLOSURE_FIX) still isn't available. Anyone get this to work?

      From Microsoft's FAQ:

      FAQ

      After I install the updates for CVE-2017-8529, is there anything else I need to do to be protected from this vulnerability?
      Yes.

        Weird!!!!!

        I've been trying to find a solution to this. While re-reading the same article I pasted above, the page refreshed and the text changed! Microsoft must have updated it while I was looking at it.

        Sure enough, the modified date changed to today. Thanks for the extra gray hair Microsoft!

        Before it said to LOCATE the key. Now it says to CREATE it manually.

        Here's what it says now.

        After I install the updates for CVE-2017-8529, is there anything else I need to do to be protected from this vulnerability?

    when I was shutting down my laptop on September 12 my laptop had 2 options...update and shutdown or update and restart...I chose the first....3 hour later I tried to login to my laptop and it told me my "password is incorrect" and I have used that password for the past year...I then tried my first password from when I bought my laptop in 2013 and it worked....I then found out the updates ERASED EVERYTHING and reverted back to Windows 7 and the only photos I had left were from 2013....it did have some programs from this year but 90% of my photos and other downloads were erased and even my toolbar and Google...did this happen to anyone else? Unfortunately I did NOT have an external backup system since my USB ports quit working about 2 years ago a few months AFTER I installed Windows 10 and I tried downloading driver updates and it didn't work

    Can't believe Edge 28 vulnerabilities. WOW. So much for Microsoft's safer and better browser. Same old, same old.

    I stopped updating my Windows 7 x64 when Microsoft intruduced the ROLLUPS. Cause some software to behave strange...

    XP x64 gets updates until 2019 but even these updates are damn buggy and make my musicstudio go berzerk... Clean install and only the updates until they officially ended the support.

    7 x64 and XP x64 are both secured in many ways. If something bad happens i just restore it from a backup that takes about 40 mins.

    The spyware 8.x and 10 will never be installed on any of my computers, not now nor ever !

    To get problems with the rollups is a common issue to many users, especially people with no computerskills.

      Hello Stefan,

      Let me wholeheartedly second both your evaluation and approach!

      Cheers,

      @Stefan:

      XP x64 does not receive POS Ready updates until 2019. XP x86 does (or more correctly, can be made to install them). So if you're updating XP x64 Edition somehow, I'd like to know.

      How do you feel that XP is more secure? It runs on lesser equipment - yes, but how is it more secure?
      I run Windows 8 and I'm not sure of the "spyware" that you speak of.

    • Jody Thornton September 22, 2017 at 1:39 pm #

      Ahem..... @Stefan:

      I still want to hear about these XP 64-bit updates that you dreamt up. And I'd like to tell me why Windows 8x has supposed spyware, but you give Windows 7 a pass. Windows 7 also has updates that include telemetry components; you did know that right?

    My 2012R2 VM's install September updates fine, but then want to install the same updates over and over. Anyone else seeing this issue?

    • Mark September 24, 2017 at 11:39 pm #

      KB4038774, 4036479, 4038792 and 4041085 want to keep installing. They get installed, reboot, check for updates, they are listed again for install.

      Only happening on Hyper-V VM's. Physical Hosts which are 2012R2 aren't seeing this issue.

        Same problem happens to me for 2012 R2 virtual guests. In addition, on virtual web servers with webdav enabled
        (which previously worked fine) unable to create new file/folders with error 0x80070057 parameter is incorrect (using my system administrator account!!)
