How to download and install the October 2019 security updates

windows security updates october 2019

Note: we suggest that you create a full system backup before applying any updates; Microsoft's track record of releasing updates without known issues has not been the best lately and while most updates may install fine and without issues on most systems, a backup ensures that you can restore the previous version if you encounter any issues.

Windows Updates are pushed to home devices automatically. You can run a manual check for updates to speed up the process.

  1. Open the Start Menu of the Windows operating system, type Windows Update and select the result.
  2. Select check for updates in the application that opens. Updates may be installed automatically when they are found or offered by Windows; this depends on the operating system and version that is used, and update settings.

Cumulative updates may also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog website to install them manually. Note that you need to make sure that a compatible Service Stack Update is installed on the device.

    In the Direct Update Downloads section, the numbers are reversed: KB4520003 is security only and KB4519976 is the rollup.

    So hopefully you receiving this second attempt?

    1903–Not a problem. Went ahead and upgraded from 1809 to 1903 on a test machine and on to the main computers encountering nothing but good, great, and better font rendering on a 4K display.

    Anyway, I have a question for Martin or anyone else. I wanted to copy/paste my Firefox profile from the 4K display machine to a machine with a smaller screen. When I do that, the result is a super huge screen on the 1920 x 1080–text is legible, nothing is stretched, but trying to resize doesn’t work.

    Do I need to change the pref.js file in the copy?

    Never had the problem.

    Thanks!

      Had that problem with Wise Cleaner maximized on a larger display. I went back and made the window as small as possible then copied it back to my tablet.

    After creating full Macrium images (always do before making any major changes), I had no issues installing monthly rollups for a Win 7 SP1 and a Win 8.1 system. All telemetry tasks and services on both are still disabled after install and each system is running as well as they did before the updates.

    Adobe have updated their Flash Player for all platforms to version 32.0.0.270 (though as of this post, their latest security bulletin has not yet been released, so it is not known whether this is security-related).

    Although the evaluation with those information was in conflict, I trusted the evaluation of “Belarc Advisor” and manually installed a standalone version of the patch.

    KB4517389 has a huge file size of 313.2 MB, so it took about an hour to complete the installation.
    Apple’s updates were also large in size and required a restart, so wasted about 2 hours to apply these updates!
    The “black screen at restart and logon” that occurred frequently during the update in 1909 did not occur, and it proceeded smoothly and was able to log on.
    at last, it seems to have realized a decent user experience.
    More than anything else, there seems to be no trouble (abnormality) that I was concerned about.

    Martin,

    You have .NET Framework updates listed under the header “non-security related’ but Microsoft lists them as security related i.e. this one for .NET 3.5: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4514371/sep-10-2019-kb4514371
