    On Windows 10 x64 Home at 17134.319, WU offered KB4458469 (and probably KB4456655 by install observation). The 1803 is now at 17134.320 .

    My new tab page in Chrome Version 70.0.3538.35 (Official Build) beta (64-bit) is now blank white instead of using the long available Google Arts and Culture extension. Chrome More Tools – Extension shows it as still turned on.

    What about all the other tiny updates happening in the background?

    Every single windows app wants to connect to the internet on it’s own and update constantly.

    I use WFC and have “Secure Rules” enabled so this fails and causes my PC to get stuck trying to update apps in the backround. I disable the secure rules and let them all update then I can go look at the rules list and see all the new ones that were added. Every single app gets it’s own rule.

    This makes me uncomfortable having every single app allowed to connect on it’s own instead of them all being updated by WU. Especially because no one is saying what exactly these little updates or for.

    Good LORD, that’s a long and heterogeneous list of bugs! My dad, who’s on the Enterprise Semi-Annual Channel, was forcibly upgraded from 1709 to 1803 last weekend. He’s getting pretty old, and I’m afraid if I go through the entire list with him to ask if he’s been affected by any, he might lapse into a coma!

    the kb4458469 won’t update, keeps showing error and when downloaded from windows catalogue keeps searching for installed updates for ever

    This isn’t the first time I see your recommending people not to update their software, so I now feel obliged to fill you in on how you’re wrong.

    The idea that someone should only update if they were facing issues is just not true at all. The vast majority of people will update their software without any issues, this time and always.

    There’s really no need to be poisoning people’s minds by telling them to steer clear of software updates.

    1. Dave said on September 24, 2018 at 5:09 am

      Delaying updates long enough for everyone to test them first is always sound advice.

    2. Martin Brinkmann said on September 21, 2018 at 8:17 pm

      There is no need to rush this update. I’m not saying that you should never upgrade. With this particular update, it makes no difference if you wait until the next Patch Tuesday unless you are affected by one or multiple of the issues described.

        The question is why has Microsoft issued this update out of the blue ? It doesn’t fix some 0-day security bug or any thing important. People don’t have to stop their work 4 times in a month on Microsoft’s whim. Once in a month is more than enough. Once in 3 months is much better.

    Hey, still waiting for 1809, no needs for Updates, i got NO good Results when doing Updates,…only doing new Upgrades to keep mee System and PC running flawlessly.

    I bet they do nothing to fix the real issues with W10.

    After researching the good documentation Microsoft provided on 2018-09-20, I used WU to install KB4458469 that day, as I am in favor of installing Quality updates and Security updates, and much less interested in Feature updates. No problems were observed so far for me.

    Tor Browser 8.0 sends OS+kernel+TOTAL_PING_COUNT in update queries to Mozilla

    – Tails 3.9, which ships with TB 8.0, is also affected.

      Tor 8.0 is messed up. It also adopts your windows title bar colors. What else is it doing?
      Use 7.5.6 and disable the update feature in:
      Tor Browser\Browser\update-settings.exe
      by changing the only line in it to: ACCEPTED_MAR_CHANNEL_IDS=0
      The update onion in the browser will flash, but no big deal; it won’t auto update any more.

      1. Peterc said on September 22, 2018 at 4:52 am


        You meant to type “update-settings.ini” (not.exe), but it was obvious once you were in the folder. Still, at first I half freaked out! (How do I edit an EXE file?).

        I kept a separate install of Tor Browser 7.5.6 going, both because I like my legacy extensions and because I wanted to give time for problems with Tor Browser 8 to shake out … and it looks like there were some.

        Anyway, thanks for the tip!
