How to download and install the November 2019 security updates

windows updates security november 2019

Most home devices running Windows are configured to download and install security updates when they are released. Users who don't want to wait for that to happen or have configured their systems to update manually only may run manual checks for updates or download the cumulative updates from Microsoft's Update Catalog website.

The following needs to be done to check for updates manually:

  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.

      >2019-11 Dynamic Update for Windows 10 Version 1809 (KB4524761)
      I’ve just noticed this. I never installed anything like this, my LTSC 1809 x64 updates just fine without this thing. I doubt it’s necessary if you do these updates manually, it’s probably just some WU client update.
      All I install is the latest SSU then the latest update pack (full, not delta). This month they were:
      windows10.0-kb4523204-x64_57098d9954748b2d7d767f73f60493bc592ff286.msu

        Same for me !

        The automatic install of KB890830 (for Mov 2019) on Win 7 64 bit fails repeatedly
        with error 800B0109..

        The MS Catalog contains 2 exe files for download:

        windows-kb890830-v5.77-delta_a9f4bcd60fdf765b24ed4b3c30af93a31d3517d4.exe
        windows-kb890830-v5.77_853d6a05c2b8ec07320dd22e4f1e5a2afb028a94.exe

        The first one runs ok (scans all the required files for malware),
        the second one seems to do nothing, and by the size (6.8M) this seems to be the one that the automatic update is downloading.

        I guess that during the automatic update the second file is supposed to launch the run of the first one, and this fails.

        After some research, I think that error 800B0109 is related to the file being improperly signed,
        so Microsoft should correct this !!!

        A small correction to the above:

        The file:
        windows-kb890830-v5.77_853d6a05c2b8ec07320dd22e4f1e5a2afb028a94.exe
        runs ok.

        The file:
        windows-kb890830-v5.77-delta_a9f4bcd60fdf765b24ed4b3c30af93a31d3517d4.exe
        does nothing !

      Regarding Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830) error on Windows 7:
      After a reboot, I was offered “2019-11 Servicing Stack Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4523206)”. I installed it, but now I am no longer offered KB890830. Odd.

        I started a new search for updates … the “2019-11 Servicing Stack Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4523206)” was offered … after installation: no KB890830 anymore.

        Win 7 Pro.
        I installed Servicing Stack Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4523206) via updates then KB4525233 (security only) from MS Catalogue, installed fine.
        Like in September, no MSRT offered.
        @ Will next month be the last or can we expect a ‘so long and thanks for all the fish’ Jan grand finale?

    Martin,
    Thanks for this handy security update explenation article.
    You wrought: ” (basically, install regular 1903 update, then check for updates again and the 1909 update should be offered)”

    I have just updated main 1903 to build 18362.476 but now after checking to update to 1909 I am getting no response?
    Could it be that Microsoft already pulled the 1909 or could it be a metter of day before Microsoft again has enough broughtband to update/upgrade me?

    This is the first time that Windows 10 has updated really fine for me. First I installed those security packages, then I installed W10 19.09 with no single issue nor problem found. All old personal configuration options are still as there was before. Sincerely, I am very happy with this unexpected good update and upgrade process. All major ISO upgrades should be like 19.09. 😁

    I see any update of my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with last update May 2017 more critical than the vulnerabilities. After May 2017 there are introduced a number of bugs and leaks that haven’t been fixed, yet, and probably never will be either ! Microsoft will do as they did with 2000, XP and Vista, just leave it….

    Did test a fully updated Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and several of my important softwares failed. I restored the older one from a backup, and ofcourse no problems at all.
