Microsoft Releases Cumulative Update KB3199209

Q: Microsoft Releases Cumulative Update KB3199209

From Softpedia

Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 cumulative update for systems running the Anniversary Update (1607), but the company hasn?t provided any release notes, so it?s hard to tell what exactly it?s improving.

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3199209 is now available for download via Windows Update, and Microsoft isn?t saying a single thing about it, even though interest in such updates has been fairly big lately. There?s no KB page just yet, and the Windows 10 update history page hasn?t received an update, so there?s absolutely no info on it.

But even so, users are strongly recommended to download and install this new cumulative update, and until now, there are no reports of failed installs or any other issues experienced after deploying it. But as always, it could take a while until more users get to install it, so we?ll be keeping an eye out on reports to see if there?s something wrong with it.

Botched cumulative updates
The latest cumulative updates released by Microsoft have caused problems on quite a lot of computers, and in most of the cases, they failed to install with error messages that said almost nothing about what went wrong. Microsoft investigated all these complaints and released fixes, but even so, there are users who?re still unable to install cumulative updates.

In the case of KB3199209, Microsoft might be trying to fix issues that users have been reporting with previous cumulative updates, as the download size is quite small. For example, the x86 version of the update is only 5.1 MB, while the x64 package is 11.2 MB big.

What?s also surprising is that this new CU does not require a system reboot, which isn?t something you?d normally expect from a cumulative update, but hopefully, everything would install successfully for everyone out there.

We?ve also contacted Microsoft to see what?s new in this cumulative update and we?ll update the article should we get more information. In the meantime, you are recommended to install it anyway because it?s likely to bring fixes refining the performance of the OS.Click to expand...

Microsoft has just rolled out a new cumulative update for PCs running Windows 10 preview builds, so if you?re not part of the Insider program, you?re not going to see it.

What?s odd with this update is that it takes the version number to Windows 10 14393.82, which the exact same version that another cumulative update released by the company earlier this week brought. In fact, Microsoft even says that if you have the old update running on your computer, you?re not going to see the new one, which is kind of weird, given the fact that it also includes an exclusive change.

Microsoft explains that this new update brings the same fixes as the previous one, with just one exception, but because you can?t see it, you?re not going be able to get this improvement - the chances are that it?ll be part of another cumulative update planned for the next weeks, so you should receive it anyway at some point in the near future.

?We have released Cumulative Update (KB3176934) to Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14393 on PCs which will bring the build number to 14393.82. This Cumulative Update includes the same fixes as KB3176932 but with an additional fix: Improved download size optimization of updates,? Microsoft explains.

Could be released to retail users soon

What?s also interesting is that these cumulative updates are currently available for insiders only, so retailer users are very likely to get them in the coming weeks when all the testing is completed.

It's Patch Tuesday, and that means software updates for all. New cumulative updates are rolling out for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.318.

It's available for everyone, including non-Insiders as well as Insiders that are using the Release Preview ring. This update skips over the last one - build 10586.240 for PCs and 10586.242 for Mobile - which shipped to the Release Preview ring, but never to Production.

As with most cumulative updates, there are no new features. Instead, the new build focuses on fixes and stability improvements.

Here's what's new in build 10586.318 for PCs:

Improved reliability in a number of areas including Cortana, Bluetooth, Shell, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Miracast, and USB.
Fixed memory leak that occurs when opening a portable document format (PDF) form multiple times.
Fixed issues with text alignment for right to left languages in Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
Fixed issue that affected Bluetooth function when a PC resumes from sleep.
Fixed issue where user accounts weren't locked out after a number of failed sign in attempts.
Fixed issue with revised daylight saving time.

REDMOND, Wash. - Microsoft Corp. released a long-awaited security update for Windows XP (news - web sites) computers on Friday, a response to the growing number of security shortcomings in the market-dominant operating system.

The free upgrade won't be available to everyone right away, however. Microsoft said the timing will depend on several factors, including customers' Internet usage, location and language as well as the overall demand for the package, dubbed Service Pack 2.
Customizing the fixes in 25 languages will take two months, the company said.
English-language users will get the update earlier as Microsoft distributes it to computer manufacturers, companies and home users through downloads, free CDs and other means.
The upgrade, which Chairman Bill Gates (news - web sites) said modifies less than 5 percent of the nearly 3-year-old operating system, is designed to make users safer from cyberattacks by sealing entries to viruses, better protecting personal data and fending off spyware.
For regular users, the most noticeable change will be a series of new prompts users will see. Users will be asked to actively give permission for programs to interact with their computers, so there is less chance they will be hit by a virus or inadvertently allow malicious software that can monitor computer activities.

Microsoft Releases Biggest-ever Security Update





Quote:
There are 16 groups of patches (called updates) in total. Microsoft says that two of them -- the Internet Explorer fix numbered MS10-071 and a Windows patch numbered MS10-076 -- should get top priority. Microsoft thinks attack code is likely to be developed that will target bugs fixed by both of those updates.







Quote:
Just because the other fixes are not rated critical does not mean they can be ignored. Symantec says 35 of the 49 bugs fixed on Tuesday could give hackers a way to run unauthorized software on a victim's machines, and Microsoft says attacks are likely to be developed that exploit some of the lower-rated issues as well.

Microsoft is rolling out the first cumulative package of non-security-focused updates and fixes for Windows 10 one week after the company began making available to users the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version of the operating system.

Referred to by some company watchers as "Service Release 1," the actual update package is officially known as KB3081424. (Thanks to The Verge's Tom Warren for a pointer to the KB.)

There's not a lot of information so far about what's in today's update, which Microsoft is delivering via Windows Update. The KB page says the following:"This update includes non-security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer."

?This update includes non?security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements, the Knowledge Base article for this update blandly notes. ?Windows 10 updates are cumulative.

On my computer it has been offered for 8.1 and 7
It appears that whether it is offered depends on this

For systems running Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2:
The 2964358 update is for systems that have the 2929437 update installed.
The 2964444 update is for systems without the 2929437 update installed.
As if you install it without 2929437 IE11 will crash
Customers running Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, must first install the 2929437 update released in April, 2014 before installing the 2964358 update.

After what seems like an eternity of waiting, Microsoft has finally released the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update. The news comes two weeks after all of the other Windows 10 platforms saw the update, and Dona Sarkar said it would be available in the coming weeks.

The build that you'll be seeing today is 14393.67, which is a cumulative update that was offered to Insiders a week ago. If it's not entirely obvious, you'll need a phone that's officially supported for Windows 10 Mobile to grab today's update.

The Anniversary Update brings quite a few new features to your device. For one thing, Wallet now supports tap-to-pay. Well, to be more specific, it only supports NFC payments if you subscribe to one of seven banks and your phone is a Lumia 650, 950, or 950 XL.

You'll also find a few camera improvements, which is also exclusive to certain devices. Windows Camera will now have a panorama feature, and on the lock screen, you'll notice that the back button turns into a camera button.

Aside from improvements to Cortana and the Action Center, perhaps the most important improvement is the new UWP Skype Preview app. One of its biggest new features is that it won't beshut down in early 2017 like its Windows Phone 8 predecessor. It also supports light and dark themes, which is something that's huge in the Windows world.

Those are just a few of the improvements that you'll see in today's update. You can check out our full re... Read more

Believe it or not, one of the updates that made it possible for Microsoft to bring the Get Windows 10 nagware app on so many Windows 7 computers is back, this time without a clear reason.

KB2952664 landed on Windows 7 PCs on October 4, and Microsoft hasn?t yet provided us with information on why exactly it re-released this patch given the fact that it doesn?t seem to bring any notable changes.

According to the official KB page, this update is only supposed to improve the upgrade experience to Windows 10, but given the fact that free upgrades are no longer available, it?s hard to believe that this makes sense for anyone.



Telemetry update
On the other hand, it?s important to note that this is a telemetry update, so it helps Microsoft collect information on compatibility issues that might be experienced during the upgrade to Windows 10.

?This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. These diagnostics help determine whether compatibility issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed. This update will help Microsoft and its partners ensure compatibility for customers who want to install the latest Windows operating system,? the official KB page reads.

And, of course, users have already started asking questions about this new update, with some believing th... Read more

Microsoft officials say the latest Windows 10 cumulative update fixes problems some users were having with Windows Store. What else is in it? We have no idea.
 
The newest cumulative update is KB3081438. The Microsoft Support page says nothing about the specific features and fixes that are new to this update beyond "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10."

Any update with a vague description like that should be considered suspicious. If I were offered an update worded like that for my windows 8.1 machine I would definitely refuse it, if they won't say what it is for it is either not important or not pleasant. Remember that this is the sort of language which was the wording used for the KB page of kb3035583 when it was first released (it's page has been updated since to give a more accurate description of what it does, but when that update first came out it's page was all vague like that).

Microsoft Releases Windows 7 and 8.1 Preview Update Rollups for December

Microsoft has rolled out new update rollup previews for Windows 7 and 8.1 to provide users with early access to next month?s patching cycle as per the company?s new approach that came into effect in October.

Specifically, Microsoft is no longer releasing individual patches, but rollups that include all updates for every month, and the company is giving users the chance to try out the next month's updates with so-called Security Monthly Quality Rollups available as optional.

Basically, these updates are only aimed at users who want to test in advance the company?s latest patches, but also for IT admins who need to prepare for the next Patch Tuesday cycle in their organizations. These updates are released on the third Tuesday of each month and can be downloaded from Microsoft?s Update Catalog.

A few hours ago, the company pushed this month?s preview for Windows 7 and 8.1 systems, and if you?re planning to install them, KB3197869 and KB3197875, respectively, are the ones you should be looking for.

What?s in these updates?
Individually, KB3197869 is called November 2016 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and comes with improvements and bug fixes for the operating system and some of the built-in features - you can check out the full changelog in the box after the jump.

Microsoft rolled out a new Windows 10 cumulative update for PCs running version 1607 (Anniversary Update), and just as we reported yesterday, there were plenty of users who experienced installation issues.

In a post on the firm?s Community forums, Microsoft engineers confirm the installation problems and explain that the team is already investigating and developing a fix.

?Investigating?
There are no details as to when exactly this new cumulative update fix could be released, but it?s worth noting that Microsoft itself says that there?s no point in trying to install this cumulative update because it?ll keep failing anyway.

?Teams have dug into this issue and do believe the cause has been identified. The correct team is developing a fix/workaround and once we have the full details, we'll be posting that information. For your affected machines, there's no need to keep attempting the install. It'll keep failing. In the mean time, hold tight! We're all over this and will keep sharing information along the way,? Microsoft says.

Several company engineers have already joined the discussion thread on the Community forums, asking for more details on the problem, so it?s very clear that the firm is actively investigating the problem.

?We launched Silverlight just over a year ago, and already one in four consumers worldwide has access to a computer with Silverlight already installed,? said Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president of the .NET Developer Division at Microsoft. ?Silverlight represents a radical improvement in the way developers and designers build applications on the Web.

From Neowin

Microsoft today released new cumulative updates for all versions of Windows 10, including Windows 10 Mobile, as opposed to a few weeks ago when the company released 14393.222 to PCs, but the corresponding Mobile build - 14393.221 - was still only available to Insiders.

Today's build 14393.321 is available to PCs and phones on the Anniversary Update; however, it would seem that all devices in the Release Preview ring, and phones in the Slow ring (PCs on the Slow ring were updated to Redstone 2), are still on the previous cumulative update. Here's what's new:
Improved reliability of Bluetooth and storage file system.
Addressed issue causing printer drivers to not install correctly after installing security update KB317005.

Today we released Security Advisory 2458511 to address a new vulnerability that could impact Internet Explorer users if they visit a website hosting malicious code. As of now, the impact of this vulnerability is extremely limited and we are not aware of any affected customers. The exploit code was discovered on a single website which is no longer hosting the malicious code. When a website is discovered to host malicious software, we work through legal channels to take the site down. These kinds of attempts to exploit systems and the people using technology are the activity of criminals. Microsoft takes this very seriously and where possible, we will take legal action against those responsible.

Internet Explorer 9 Beta users are not affected by this issue and any customers who wish to upgrade their browser to this version can do so freely at www.microsoft.com/ie. Impacted versions include Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8, although our ongoing investigation confirms that default installations of Internet Explorer 8 are unlikely to be exploited by this issue. This is due to the defense in depth protections offered from Data Execution Prevention (DEP), which is enabled by default in Internet Explorer 8 on all supported Windows platforms. For supported versions of Windows running earlier versions of Internet Explorer, please review this blog post from our Security Research & Defense team describing how to enable DEP.

A new cumulative update is available for non-Insiders that are already running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, build 14393.351. Insiders on the Release Preview ring got the update early this morning, but it's not available in the Production ring (non-Insiders).

As with all PC updates that show up in the Production ring, there is a changelog (Insiders are rarely so lucky when it comes to cumulative updates). Here's what's new:

Improved reliability of Internet Explorer 11, Start, File Explorer, action center, graphics, and the Windows kernel.

Microsoft's big push into the enterprise anti-virus market took another step forward June 6 with the release of a completely revamped Antigen e-mail security product suite...The Antigen line gives customers a choice of as many as nine anti-virus scanning engines from third-party vendors Network Associates, Norman Data Defense Systems, Sophos, Computer Associates, Kaspersky Lab, MailFilters, VirusBuster, AhnLab and Authentium.http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,1972678,00.asp

Eugene Kaspersky has published an article entitled Changes in the antivirus industry, much of which focuses on the impact of MS's entry into the security arena and market.Over the past few years, the antivirus industry has undergone some major changes. The market leader has changed (McAfee has lost ground to Symantec), some independent antivirus companies have either disappeared from the market or have been taken over (the Romanian company RAV and the Australian company VET), and new players (BitDefender, ClamAV) have appeared.The major factors "currently influencing the antivirus industry":Factor 1: Continuing criminalization of the InternetFactor 2: Increased variety of malware and attack methodsFactor 3: MicrosoftMicrosoft is going to be seriously focussing on the security solutions market; this will include developing antivirus solutions. The antivirus industry is in a state of shock - everyone remembers Netscape and other independent projects, which either significantly lost market share or disappeared altogether after Microsoft produced similar products. Microsoft is planning to bring the following to the market: *antivirus for home PCs *antivirus for workstations (planned for the future) *solutions for MS Exchange (using the multi-engine Antigen from Sybari)Of course, the appearance of this commercial giant will be a heavy blow to other manufacturers.

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Build 14371 for PC

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 Mobile build 14371 for the fast ring a few hours ago and it?s the turn of PCs to receive the very same build if they are enrolled in this fast track.

Windows 10 build 14371 for PCs brings just a new feature that concerns the way activation is performed on a desktop computer.

Microsoft says that it received plenty of complaints from users who were unable to activate their copies of Windows after changing hardware such as hard drives or motherboards so with this new build, it introduces a new Activation Troubleshooter (available in Settings > Update & security > Activation > Troubleshoot) that guides you through the necessary steps to activate your PC successfully.

?For example ? if your device has a digital license (formerly called ?digital entitlement?) for Windows 10 Pro from a previously installed activated Windows 10 build but you accidentally re-installed Windows 10 Home on such a device, the troubleshooter will automatically guide you through upgrading to Windows 10 Pro and activate Windows,? Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider program, explained.



Just one known issue
Furthermore, with this build the company is also introducing a new option that lets you link Microsoft accounts to the activation digital license.

?If you already used an MSA to log in to your activated Windows 10 Home or Pro device, your MSA will be automatically linked. You can... Read more

As many reports assert, Flame has been used in highly sophisticated and targeted attacks and, as a result, the vast majority of customers are not at risk. Additionally, most antivirus products will detect and remove this malware. That said, our investigation has discovered some techniques used by this malware that could also be leveraged by less sophisticated attackers to launch more widespread attacks. Therefore, to help protect both targeted customers and those that may be at risk in the future, we are sharing our discoveries and taking steps to mitigate the risk to customers.Unauthorized digital certificates could allow spoofing http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2718704

Hiya

This is a cumulative patch that includes the functionality of all
previously released patches for SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, MSDE
1.0, and MSDE 2000. In addition, it eliminates three newly discovered
vulnerabilities.

- Named Pipe Hijacking -
Upon system startup, SQL Server creates and listens on a specific
named pipe for incoming connections to the server. A named pipe is a
specifically named one-way or two-way channel for communication
between a pipe server and one or more pipe clients. The named pipe is
checked for verification of which connection attempts can log on to
the system running SQL Server to execute queries against data that is
stored on the server.

A flaw exists in the checking method for the named pipe that could
allow an attacker local to the system running SQL Server to hijack
(gain control of) the named pipe during another client's
authenticated logon password. This would allow the attacker to gain
control of the named pipe at the same permission level as the user
who is attempting to connect. If the user who is attempting to
connect remotely has a higher level of permissions than the attacker,
the attacker will assume those rights when the named pipe is
compromised.

- Named Pipe Denial of Service -
In the same named pipes scenario that is mentioned in the "Named Pipe
Hijacking" section of this bulletin, it is possible for an
unauthenticated user who is local to the intranet to send a very
large packet to a specific named pip... Read more

http://news.softpedia.com/news/micr...-8-1-will-get-cumulative-updates-509130.shtml

Microsoft will make substantial changes to the way it delivers updates to Windows 7 and 8.1 computers tomorrow when it starts the rollout of this month?s Patch Tuesday, switching to a new servicing model that?s inspired by Windows 10.

Specifically, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will start getting rollup updates every month, which are supposed to make it easier for users and IT admins to install them on Patch Tuesdays.

Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers will get a security-only quality update every month, and this will be published as ?Security Update? with a unique KB number. Additionally, there?ll be a security monthly quality rollup which is more of a monthly rollup containing all security fixes needed to bring a computer fully up to date.

?This will be published to Windows Update (where all consumer PCs will install it), WSUS, and the Windows Update Catalog. The initial monthly rollup released in October will only have new security updates from October, as well as the non-security updates from September,? Microsoft says.



Non-security fixes
And last but not least, there?ll be a third update that will include non-security fixes and which will be rolled on the third Tuesday of the month ? this means that you?ll get it a week after Patch Tuesday.

The KB3081424 have been rolled out today for Windows 10, and it's a Cumulative Update. It'll update a lot of files that are coming out in users' SFC and DISM scans as corrupted. Installing it could fix these files, so I suggest you to install it.Cumulative Update for Windows 10: August 5, 2015This update includes nonsecurity-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.Windows 10 updates are cumulative.

Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 PCs and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.494.

KB3172985 is a bit of a mystery at the moment, as Microsoft hasn't published a changelog for either version. Typically, the PC release notes would be published to the Windows 10 Update History page, which isn't currently showing anything new.

The Mobile version is always a bit of a jumble, the release notes sometimes showing up in Microsoft's Answers forum and occasionally, in the Feedback Hub. Perhaps most interesting is that the changelog for phones is almost never available at the time that the update is offered.

The last cumulative update that we saw was 10586.454 in the Release Preview ring. No Release Preview update has ever made it to the Production ring, so the last public update was 10586.420.

Microsoft today released the first cumulative update for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update since its release a week ago. KB3176495 brings the build number to 14393.51.

As with most cumulative updates, don't expect to see any new features. Instead, it focuses on fixes and improvements.

Here's what's new:

Improved reliability for Internet Explorer 11.
Addressed issue to keep pen click settings after updating to Windows 10 Version 1607.
Addressed issue that may cause Windows 10 Mobile devices to hang after turning Bluetooth on and off very quickly.
Security updates to Kernel Mode Drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, and Windows Authentication Methods.
Of course, not everyone is on the Anniversary Update yet, and today is Patch Tuesday, so everyone gets a patch. Microsoft also released build 10586.545 (for the November Update, Version 1511) and 10240.17071 (for the original Windows 10 release, 1507).

Here are the improvements in 10586.545:

Improved reliability by allowing more time for devices to recover from connected standby mode.
Addressed issue affecting some devices with Bitlocker enabled that didn?t start up to the BitLocker password entry screen.
Addressed issue with MouseUp and MouseDown events not working correctly when using a scroll bar in an Inline Frame (IFrame).

It's Patch Tuesday, and you know what that means. It's time for cumulative updates. Today's update is for both Windows 10 PCs and phones, and it brings the build number to 10586.420.

The update is available to both the Production ring and the Release Preview ring, continuing an interesting trend. Since the Release Preview ring was made available back in February, not a single cumulative update has been made available to the ring and later to the Production ring.

For example, builds 10586.242 and 10586.338 were offered up to Release Preview, but they never made it to Production. The updates that do make it to Production show up in the RP ring at the exact same time.

Here's what's new in Windows 10 for PCs build 10586.420:




Improved reliability of Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Cortana, audio playback, audio playback in Groove Music app, Maps app, Miracast, and Windows Explorer.
Fixed issue with balloon tip notifications always appearing in the upper left side of the screen.

Microsoft today released yet another cumulative update for Windows 10 PCs that are running the Anniversary Update, bringing the build number to 14393.187. KB3189866 brings a number of improvements.

Today is Patch Tuesday, so the update isn't a surprise. Unfortunately, nothing is available for Windows 10 Mobile yet, even though 14393.105 was offered to the Release Preview and Slow rings last week.

Microsoft has been releasing updates rather frequently for the Anniversary Update since its release, as the last one was only two weeks ago. We found out today that the full rollout for the AU may not be completed until November, so it's clear that the firm wants to get as many bugs squashed as possible before then.

Here's what's new in today's update:
Improved reliability of Windows Shell, map apps, Internet Explorer 11, and Microsoft Edge.
Addressed issue causing push-button reset to not work correctly and roll back on devices with language set to any of the Unicode languages.
Addressed issue causing devices to crash after disconnecting an e-reader that was attached to the device.

"Gee Wally, I didn't think Windows 10 would ever need any security patches because everybody is always screaming how secure it is already. What's going on Wally?".

"You believed what Microsoft said Beaver. That was your first mistake".

Same ole whack-a-mole game. No reason to move off Windows 7 yet that I can see.

In fact, if you think about it, the more popular post "Windows 7" operating systems become the more likely they are to be the main targets of hackers. Which means less attacks on older operating systems which means, older operating systems will be more secure by default. Because nobody is concerned about them anymore. Ah, I can sleep soundly tonight.

Issue:
======
Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2001 is an Enterprise
Server product that simplifies developing and managing E-Commerce
web sites. MCMS includes a number of pre-defined ASP web pages that
allow web site operators to quickly set up E-business websites.

A Cross-Site Scripting flaw exists in one of these ASP pages that
could allow an attacker to insert script into the data being sent
to a MCMS server. Because the server generates a web page in
response to a user request made using this page, it is possible that
the script could be embedded within the page that CMS generates and
returns to the user, this script would then run when processed by
the user's browser. This could result in an attacker being able to
access information the user shared with the legitimate site.

An attacker might attempt to exploit this flaw by crafting a
malicious link to a valid site that the user intended to visit.
If the attacker were able to get a user to click the link-most
likely by sending the link in an email-then it could be possible
for the attacker to take a variety of actions. The attacker could
alter the data that appeared to be contained on the web pages
presented by the legitimate site, monitor the user's session with
the legitimate site and copy personal data from the legitimate site
to a site under the attacker's control, or access the legitimate
site's cookies.

Microsoft has begun to rollout Build 14393.82 for Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring. On PC, the latest update is KB3176932. This is a cumulative update so, while the release notes haven?t been published yet, it?s safe to say that it contains mostly bug fixes and small improvements instead of launching any major new features.

It?s important to emphasise that this update is for those special Windows 10 andWindows 10 Mobile users who have been enrolled in the Windows Insiders program. This program consists of volunteers who offer to run preview builds of the Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile operating systems on their own devices. Microsoft uses these users as a way to test the stability and security of special features and functions before rolling them out to the general population.

There weren't any new features listed for the PC build, but there are a number of fixes, improvements, and known issues.

Here are the fixes and improvements:

We have fixed an issue causing a large blank space to appear between the address bar and web content after the address bar moves back to the top when opening a new tab in Microsoft Edge.
We have updated Narrator Scan mode for table navigation to now support CTRL + ALT + HOME to go to the beginning of the table CTRL + ALT + END to go to the end of the table.
Microsoft Edge now supports the CTRL + O keyboard shortcut for setting focus to the address bar.
We fixed an issue resulting in Sketchpad and Screen Sketch crashing after trying to change the ink color twice in a row when the ruler was visible.
Here are the known issues:

Support for kernel debugging over 1394 has been removed, but will be available in an upcoming kit release. A work-around will be posted to the Debugging Tools for Windows Blog shortly.
Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes when you try to launch it.
Cortana?s text to speech capabilities is not working in this build. For example, Cortana won?t be able t... Read more

The updates bring the current browser to Version 2.0.0.4, and the 2005 edition to 1.5.0.12. These can be downloaded from Mozilla, or users can use the "Check for Updates" feature in 2.0, or await the popup notification. Users of Ff1.5 should be aware that this will be the last patch for the older version.See the ComputerWorld article:http://www.computerworld.com/action/articl...rc=news_ts_headRegards,John

Microsoft today released a late-afternoon cumulative update today for PCs in the Release Preview rings of the Windows Insider Program today. KB3176938 brings the build number to 14393.105.

In case you've got some type of photographic memory and KB3176938 looks familiar to you, that's because it is. It's the same KB number as was seen in the last cumulative update that Insiders got, 14393.103, which was for PC and Mobile. Today's update does not have a counterpart for Windows phones.

The last update to hit the Production ring (non-Insiders) for PCs was 14393.82, which broke PowerShell DSC. At the time, Microsoft promised to have a fix available on August 30, which happens to be today. That update wouldn't happen as planned.

It was assumed that today's update (had it been released) would have been 14393.103. Presumably, the company found a bug in last week's cumulative update that prevented it from being shipped to non-Insiders, forcing today's 14393.105 release.

There is no changelog available yet for today's update, which isn't entirely surprising. It's likely, however, that it's almost the same as 14393.103 was, since it has the same KB number.

I'm hoping somebody might be able to advise me on an issue I'm having. I'm not the most techy so I'm hoping I can explain it accurately.

It seems to be (from what I have discovered) linked to the Windows 10 Cumulative Updates.

Issue 1 began on the 28/01/16 as soon as Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3124262) was installed

I noticed that there was now a delay of about 30-40 seconds between switching the laptop on and the Windows log in screen appearing. During this time is the annoying rotating circle.
Then once my username and password were entered, there was another longer delay (complete with rotating circle) before taking me to the desktop.

Issue 2 began a few days later when Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3135173) was installed. I no longer had access to the windows start menu (I had to right click) or the Action menu. Issue 1 also persisted.

I did some googling and discovered that these issues may be because of the updates themselves (not installing properly) and found the page for a manual download for (KB3135173)

I'm just wondering if I did the right thing. I uninstalled (manually) both the Cumulative and security Updates for (KB3124262) and (KB3135173) and manually reinstalled (KB3135173) .

I now have access to my Windows start bar and action centre again but the slow start up persists. I'm just hoping I did the right thing. Was it ok to uninstall both the Cumulative and Security upd... Read more

Please see below:

I have been trying for over more than a week to install this update without luck, like so many others it seems!
At the weekend it completely crashed my machine and I couldn't start Windows at all but I was saved by a Reflect image backup.
Now when it downloads the update it winds it back on startup.
I have been trying to follow guidance on the issue but with no luck and now not sure what I have or haven't done!
The machine is a recent rebuild from scratch, free from nasties and sfc reveals no file issues.
I have a second machine of a similar build and that updated without problem.
Can someone please provide me with some structured help.
I don't seem to be getting automatic notifications when I post on this site, any thoughts to resolve that so that I know when a response has been provided? I will keep coming back to check.
Thanks

My PC (win 10 pro, 64bit) started a cumulative update at about 9am this morning and it's still cranking.
Is it really necessary to do that during business hours despite my business hours setup is from 8am to 8pm?
I remember, before the anniversary update, the updates started in the evening when I shut down my PC, went through its paces at night and shut the PC down when it was finished. What happened to that?
Thanks,
Ed

A:Cumulative update during business hours?

Hi,
1. You can block Windows updates from downloading by various widely published means. The downloads otherwise occur at any time.
2. You can use Active Hours (build 1607) to prevent restarts during a 12 hr period max. You should be able to use 3rd party software to block restarts otherwise (I haven't managed to definitively test that with updates).
3. Pro upwards editions support deferring upgrades (in Settings).

There is a cumulative Windows update that appears in each monthly set of updates and if I don't catch it in time it prevents three different Windows 10 systems in my house from booting and I have to use True Image to restore. This has been going on for about 5 months now and I know there are a lot of folks with the same problem. You'd think Microsoft would pull or fix the update. At least two of the systems are are W10 Professional or Ultimate so I've just used gpedit to stop automatic updates (you'd think I would have done this earlier), but the other system isn't and I have to remember to create the images and/or hide the update on the day it comes out. What a Pain!!!Just using the forum to rant

A:Cumulative Update a Real Pain

I really dont understand Microsoft these days:Pushy for people to 10 even when people go through measures to avoid it, and then now to hear that they are even pushing updates that are unwanted once your onto 10 which break systems. WOW.Patio suggested that he has set his updates to notify vs auto for his system(s). I am going to do this for all my systems now. It might be the fix to your problem here too. My situation is that systems on 7, Microsoft is trying to force to 10 and I dont want 10. I have one computer that I took the free Windows 10 upgrade on from 7. And that system is in my closet for someday when I need 10 for some reason I will have a system on 10 and not miss out of the free upgrade. But other systems I want to remain on 7. Some of which clearly do not support 10 due to age of a single-core laptop for example where the Intel Chipset was lucky enough to have Windows 7 driver for integrated video, but of which there is no Windows 10 driver for the GPU so it fails to upgrade to 10. Others I know have have their computers turn into a brick when taking free upgrade and then the system is stuck in a boot loop because there was a malfunction with a driver or something else causing a crash condition boot loop etc.I ended up cloning the drive in my one highly configured Windows 7 system so that if Microsoft somehow tries again to forcefully upgrade me to 10, i should be able to clone the cloned drive back to the master drive.

Hello!

In order to be able to install any other update I have to use the show/hide tool to hide the cumulative updates. I don't know what's wrong.

A:Cannot install any cumulative update, other updates OK

Hi spapakons,

Please remove every crack/bypass on your system in order to proceed.
There are 2 main reasons,
1.




Troubleshooting a system with counterfeit programs is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit program contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.



2.
Forum rules





4) No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).

Hiya

A remote code execution vulnerability in a component of Outlook Express could allow an attacker who sent a Windows Address Book file to a user of an affected system to take complete control of the system.

If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less affected than users who operate with administrative user rights.

Affected Components:

• Outlook Express 5.5 Service Pack 2 on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
• Outlook Express 6 Service Pack 1 when installed on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
• Outlook Express 6 on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
• Outlook Express 6 on Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
• Outlook Express 6 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1
• Outlook Express 6 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition
• Outlook Express 6 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Itanium-based Systems and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with SP1 for Itanium-based Systems

Hello,
I'm trying to install the latest Windows Update - Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866) - however it's stuck at 45%. Restart won't help. Did you had this issue?

Here's how to install balky Windows 10 cumulative patch KB 318986

I'm seeing posts all over the web from folks trying to install the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) cumulative update. KB 3189866 is supposed to bring Windows 10 AU to build 14393.187, but reports say the installer gets stuck at 45 percent, 48 percent, 95 percent, and various other points along the way.

The problem's widespread, and Microsoft has known about it since shortly after the patch dropped. Since it's a cumulative update, there's no easy solution.

Microsoft will certainly figure out what's blocking the patch, but in order to fix it the company will have to release a new cumulative update. Unless it can find a magic way to modify a released cumulative update, the only solution is a new cumulative update that absolves the sins of the original. That's one of the big problems with these massive, one-way "as a service" patches. It's also a totally predictable problem, as I've been saying for almost two years.

A:Cumulative Update KB3189866 for Windows 10 stuck at 45%

I had this issue but got it to install by manually downloading it myself!

Answer Match 54.6%

Windows 10 Pro x64 laptop had updates set to automatically download and then notify. (Still using v. 1511 build 10586 due to continuing reported issues with 1607.) No problems with any updates prior to Oct 2016.

Oct 11 cumulative update KB3192441 apparently failed and gave notice it would "automatically retry later". Download failed again on Oct 12, 13 and 14. Went to Microsoft Update Catalog and downloaded/installed KB3192441 without any apparent issues. But when I opened Settings > Update & security, I saw a brand new notice that "Some settings are managed by your organization" (see screenshot.)

Q1: Why did this happen?

Q2: How do I regain full control over future updates since this laptop is not part of an "organization"?

NOTE: I tried modifying Windows Update settings using this tutorial. No effect on removing the "Some settings are managed by your organization" notice.

Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

I also tried using three System Restore Points and two System Images all made prior to Oct 11. They did not have any success in removing the notice. It reappeared as soon as I clicked the "Check for updates" button.

(BTW, going thru the Microsoft Update Catalog resulted in a download of 1.03GB and took almost 6 hours to complete. I understand that MS wants people to have all released updates but this cumulative concept really stinks. End of rant.)

A:October2016 Cumulative Update Changed Settings

Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost" /f
reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /f
reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost" /f

Note, that it will probably appear again, it is related to some Windows Update/Insider settings.

Just wondering how/if it's possible to just get security and stability updates after these changes come next month?
I am a home user, so I don't have access to WSUS or whatever.

Am unable install this large update. Have tried several posted fixes I.e registry fix to delete orphaned account(there wasn't one), install update standalone(didn't work), applying windows update fix(didn't work)
and also amending windows update service(didn't work).
It appears that quite a few people are having this problem and some of these remedies work and others don't. Anyone with the same problem and ideas how to fix?
