    Whoa! I have set aside all of the Windows hard drives to my many LInux installs.

    3 of these would need to be redone from before w7sp1 to resell with Windows.

    I guess they will go with Linux or be stripped & recycled.

    Thanks M$…..

    Does anyone know if this months updates include telemtry/diagnostics for Windows 7, I just got rid of all of them last month Thanks to an article here at Ghacks with a link to Tweakhound and don’t want anymore from Microsoft. I’m almost tempted to turn off Windows Updates early since there’s less than a year left and would if it wasn’t for Microsoft Security Essentials.

    KB4487085 for XP/POSReady 2009 is broken/incorrectly packaged with vista/7 files/components causing boot failures and other app crashes and must be uninstalled to regain functionality.

    KB4486463 for XP/POSReady 2009 is broken on uniprocessor/single core/non-HT installs causing looping repeat installs.

      We have found an issue with KB4487085 where you get a ‘The procedure entry point sprintf_s could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll’ error, even though msvcrt.dll isn’t included in the update.
      You have to uninstall it to fix it.
      Made our helpdesk very busy this morning.

    Both KB4486563 (Win7 security monthly quality rollup) and KB4486474 (IE11 cumulative security update) broke our Centricity RIS software today; it’s a medical record system that runs inside IE11. If users click the “Tools” button inside the application, they immediately get kicked out back to the login page so none of the affected users could scan or view documents.

    The only fix I could find was to uninstall both updates, as uninstalling only one or the other wouldn’t fix it. Didn’t see any event viewer entries, either. Wish there was an easy way to tell MS about this but there’s no Windows 7 feedback hub.

    Are 1809 LTSC updates coming through WSUS yet? I have “LTSB” checked off and the only 1809 updates I see are .net FrameWork updates. No CU’s are coming through.

    Just did the latest Windows 7 update and now I do not have wireless capability on my laptop. Have done all of the suggestions I can find online and nothing has worked to restore the wifi. So now am doing a system restore to before the latest update. If it doesn’t work, I am really going to be frustrated more than I already am.
    I did uninstall the updates and restarted the laptop and still no wifi. It worked just fine until the laptop restarted after the update. Am I the only one?

    Update: I don’t know what did the trick, but I did a System Restore, deleted the adapters, restarted the computer, plus a couple other things again that I originally did, and was able to restore the wireless capability. Whew! I know just enough to get me into trouble, and sometimes out of trouble.
