      If hardware supports it, Windows 11 isn’t too bad an upgrade after your finish tweaking and remove the crap Microsoft thinks everybody should use but, wait until the first week of next month just in case there’s a bug in the updates.

    No issues to report on two Windows 8.1 Pro systems.

    After taking a Macrium image of the system, installed the Servicing Stack Update first (KB5014025) downloaded from the Microsoft Catalog. Then via Windows Update installed the Monthly Rollup (KB5014011) and Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, 4.7.2, 4.8 for Windows 8.1 for x64 (KB5013872).

    Windows, in it’s various versions, always seems to be carrying tons of “Remote Code Execution Vulnerability” bugs/patches.

    I guess it’s true what they say about Windows: Backdoors are only found when people report them.

    The update caused a bug in my Windows 10 client on vmware Workstation 16.2.3 (on Linux host). The upper left of the screen (which can be the whole screen or majority of the screen) does not display correctly.
