Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

Q: Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

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."

A: Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

"This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality"
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 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.

What?s more frustrating, however, is that this cumulative update actually experienced the exact same issues when being tested ... Read more

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."

I know what you?re thinking. SR1? Seriously? But it?s true: just a week after the initial release of Windows 10, Microsoft has delivered the first major update to its latest OS. Dubbed Service Release 1 (SR1) internally, this cumulative update for Windows 10 provides no new features but does offer a ton of small fixes.

?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.

Less than a week after Microsoft released the first cumulative update to Windows 10, they have pushed out another cumulative release via Windows Update. At this time, it is not known what this release includes - but many users will be hoping that it contains a fix for issues that were causing some machines to enter a reboot loop while trying to install the first update.

This particular update is KB3081436 and you can find the support page here and the update log is posted below.Click to expand...

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) .

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.

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194496 for computers running 1607 last week, but as we reported recently, there are plenty of users out there who are experiencing problems when trying to install it.

While this isn?t surprising at all given the fact that similar issues were spotted with many other cumulative updates, Microsoft has already confirmed that it?s investigating reports and that a fix is on its way.

Fortunately, someone on the Microsoft Community forums has found a workaround for this problem in order to successfully install the cumulative update on any Windows 10 computer.



The workaround
What you need to do is to fire up File Explorer and delete the entire folder at the following location (administrator privileges are needed, so make sure you are logged in with an admin account):


Code:
C: > Windows > System32 > Tasks > Microsoft > XblGameSave
After that, launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit.exe in the Start menu and delete the following registry key ? once again, administrator privileges are needed to do this:


Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > WindowsNT > CurrentVersion > Schedule > TaskCache > Tree > Microsoft > XblGameSave
According to users who have already tried this, all you need to do next is to launch Windows Update once again and try to download and instal... Read more

A:How to Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 Installation Issues

Also, if you have completely uninstalled (deleted) XBox and all associated items from your system, then KB3194496 will not install.

To get KB1394496 to install, you have to completely re-install XBox - and not forget to install all associated items.

There is a DISM re-install package method for advanced users, and then for everyone else there is a clean install of Windows 10.

Don't you just love it... ?

* * * * *

The better solution is to disable Windows Update service and only re-enable it to install any cumulative updates -- after waiting for at least two months for a "fixed" cumulative update.

I have a Windows 10 system upgraded from Win7. Windows Update failed on this recent cumulative update. The web has lots of hits about this. After trying a number of fixes, the following worked for me:

1. I went into Disk Management and saw that my System Reserved Partition was 100MB vs the minimum recommended (according to some sites) of 400MB.

2. I used MiniTool Partition Wizard (free edition) to resize the System Reserved Partition to 450MB. That required burning a CD from a downloaded ISO.

3. Since the Windows update failed again, I deleted the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download (I did NOT delete the DOWNLOAD folder itself, just the contents)

4. BINGO! The update installed.

Hope this helps someone else who may have this problem.

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.

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.

Hello,

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.

I had that also with this update.
So here is what I did to get over it.
I restarted it then ran the Disc Clean Up app
Which cleared all traces from the Disc
Then let it download and install, which took some time
Then it installed to 30% then Restarted then finished at 100%
Which again sat there for some time then flashed up it had finished and now running all ok on all my systems

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?

I contacted MS tech support Wednesday and the support tech was unable to resolve the issue after deleting my update logs and running some utility software. The case was escalated Yesterday, the level two tech indicated that some services were corrupted and just initiated a repair install. I just completed the repair install with all the updates and the issue is still not resolved. My update that keeps failing is also called cumulative security update for internet explorer 11 for windows 7 64-bit (KB3038314)

http://news.softpedia.com/news/wind...b3193494-also-failing-to-install-508542.shtml

Microsoft has recently released Windows 10 cumulative update KB3193494 in order to bring the KB3189866 saga to an end, but it turns out that there are users who are experiencing issues with this new patch as well.

Some of those who were offered the new cumulative update are reporting problems when attempting to install it, and the way it happens looks very similar to what others have experienced in the past.

In most of the cases, the cumulative update fails to install, and it simply rolls back before getting users back to the desktop. The update is then reoffered and redownloaded before the system is once again rebooted to attempt the install.

Users who couldn?t install the original KB3189866 update were confident that this new one fixes the problems, so they rushed to install it.

?I have already read some issues with this update and that you should install the offline updater. It has the same problem. Microsoft released KB3193494 to resolve the download issue, so I tried again. Still the same problem,? one of them explains on Microsoft?s Community forums.



Post-installation problems
Others are reporting issues spotted after the update successfully installed on their computers and upon removal, everything seems to be returning to normal, which is living proof that this latest cumulative update is the source of the problems.

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.
Fixed issue that sometimes corrupts CompactFlash cards inserted into a card reader.
Fixed issue that caused recorded video to be lost when answering an incoming call on some phones.
Fixed issue that could result in unexpected battery drain while the phone screen is off.

I would change it back and then see if you are then able to install the update.
If it still does not do it then you can always revert back to what you changed
Remember before you do create a restore point.
Good luck and keep us posted on how you get on

The update fails to install on some computers, users claim

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3097617 earlier today and the first reports pointing to problems experienced during installation or even after that are already reaching the web.

For example, a number of users who turned to Microsoft's Community forums explain that KB3097617 fails to install on their PCs, undoes all changes and then restarts the machine, pushing it in an infinite reboot loop just like it happened with previous cumulative updates.

Microsoft user Darkc0de explains what happens on his Windows 10 computer:

?The update is just not installing, after asking for a restart windows update, initializes goes till 30% Then PC restarts and from 30, goes till 54% and restarts again this time it says We Could Not complete undoing changes and updates 2- 3 Team PC restarts again saying undoing changes and finally finally PC starts.?

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

Three days ago my desktop tried to update 1607 3 times. Each time on reboot it says failed to update and reverts. Each day it tries again at shutdown.

Yesterday my second(son's) computer updated and all I could see was a black screen with a circle. Had to do a repair and it reverted back 2 two updates. Note, this computer does not have integrated graphics - so that fix process would not work.

Now the wife's computer wants to update but I am not restarting it - if hers goes down it will be hell in my household.

I looked on the web and don't see much about this update getting fixed by Microsoft. Any ideas what I should do? My main computer is asking to try again and it will just fail or worse - black screen. I told the family not to shutdown the wife's but I know at some point it will try to do the update on its own.

This is the worst mess we have ever had, but all I see are web pages about the anniversary update - not this one.

Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3197954 Fails to Install as Well

Windows 10 cumulative updates are certainly pretty helpful for the majority of users running Microsoft?s latest OS version, but at the same time, they are turning into sort of nightmare for others who can?t simply install them successfully.

Issues with Windows 10 cumulative updates have been around for a while, and Microsoft has tried to fix them on several occasions, but for some reason, they keep coming back pretty much in the same form.

KB3197954 makes no exception, and after being pushed to Windows 10 users last week, it appears that it fails to install on a number of machines due to a cause that?s yet to be determined.

More than just installation issues
Posts on Microsoft?s Community forums are pointing towards various problems experienced with cumulative update KB3197954, including system freezes, but in most of the cases, it?s the typical ?failing to install? issue that makes it impossible for some users to deploy the patch on their computers.

Microsoft is investigating freezing issues on PCs after Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Last week, we reported that several users are experiencing freezing issues on their PCs after the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This usually involved a system freeze after logging in, which rendered the device unresponsive. Several of our readers confirmed that they were experiencing the same issue on different devices and configurations as well, but had been unable to discover a universal fix.

Now, Microsoft has acknowledged the issue, stating that the company has received a "small number of reports", and has confirmed that it is currently investigating the reason behind the problem, as it works on a fix.

According to Microsoft Forum Moderator Basith M, the company is aware that users are experiencing freezing issues on PCs after the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. However, the moderator mentioned that the problem plagues only those with the operating system installed on solid-state drives (SSDs), with apps and data downloaded on separate drives. Basith also went on to say that if users sign in to Windows 10 in Safe Mode, the issue does not occur.




While Microsoft works on a fix for the problem, Basith has suggested a temporary workaround for users, asking them to start their PCs in Safe Mode, and then to transfer apps and data to the same storage device as the operating system. The moderator has also stated that another alternative is to roll back to the previous ver... Read more

Microsoft has pushed out an update for the Windows 10 technical preview that it released on Tuesday which will fix the power or sleep issues that your install may be exhibiting.

The update is out now and you can grab the bits by going to Windows Update within the PC settings and checking for updates.
This is a relatively quick patch for Microsoft seeing as the build was released this week, which makes us think that this was likely a known issue before the release. Regardless, the patch is out now and if your machine has had any issues with power / sleep functionality, this should fix it.

Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.

Microsoft's first cumulative update for Windows 10 - KB3081424 - is causing havoc for some users. How do I know this? Because I spent a good part of my Sunday morning dealing with it, that's how.

The problem, in a nutshell, is that the update puts affected systems into an endless crash loop. The update tries to install, gets to a certain point, fails, and then displays the unhelpful "We couldn't complete the updates, undoing the changes."

If it stopped there things wouldn't be too bad, but because Microsoft now forces updates onto Windows 10 users, the OS kept trying - and failing - to install the update, which in turn placed the system into a periodic crash/reboot loop that put quite a dent in my productivity.

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194798 is failing to install for some users, but on the other hand, a number of those who actually manage to deploy it successfully are reporting a different bug.

Disk Cleanup is reporting a disk size of 3.99 TB after installing this cumulative update and users are claiming that this is happening no matter how much storage they have on their computers.

?Disk Cleanup listed the size of the Windows Update files that could be deleted as 3.99 TB, yes terabytes! What was shocking was the fact that I only have a 250 GB SSD drive on my laptop, one PC has a 256 GB SSD main drive and a 2 TB secondary, and the third has a 500 GB SSD with a 2 TB secondary drive,? one user explained on Microsoft?s Community forums.

In most of the cases, cleaning the disk still works correctly, although some are complaining that it still takes too long to complete. The process indeed seems to be rather slow after installing this cumulative update, but other than the incorrect data size, no issue appears to be caused to Disk Cleanup.

Microsoft hasn?t yet acknowledged the bug, and a workaround is not yet available, but the company is very unlikely to fix the problem too fast since it doesn?t cause anything beside the incorrect data size in Disk Cleanup.

Recent (Oct 15th) huge number of security updates, caused grief on 32bit Vista SP2 which I have narrowed down to the IE8 Cumulative Security Update by a process of elimination re-applying patchsets & testing the box.

With IE8 cumaltive security, in Stage 3 of "Configuring Update" it seems to be stuck at 0%, the chime occurs, but after a while the screen blanks, and the hardware resets a little later causing a reboot.

Updated ATI Radeon Video driver to latest has been to no avail; the machine seems solid in use and is also running Linux (and updated an old install with 10 months of patches) perfectly. Checking BIOS & drivers are up to date hasn't turned anything up, and the box and install generally solid. I tried booting with 'Safe options' to configure the update, but that did not help, so it would appear unlikely the resets are a driver issue.

Whilst I have the system back through system restore to checkpoint before the update, and have now hidden this patch, this leaves me with an insecure IE8.

1) Can I report the problem with the update anywhere?
2) Could I obtain smaller patchsets to find the likely culprit?
3) Can I downgrade IE8 to IE7?

Obviously I can use FF-3.5 for normal browsing, but some Windows programs & sites try to force use of IE, so the security issue does matter. This has caused much inconvenience and time, to a relatively tech savvy user, so one would hope a cumumaltive patch becomes available which does not have t... Read more

What Microsoft won't be doing after October, however, is shipping the individual hotfixes any more. Fixes will only be available through the Monthly Rollup or security-only update. This means that the ability to pick and choose individual fixes to apply will be removed; they'll be distributed and deployed as a singular all-or-nothing proposition.

Hello, I was receiving an error whenever I attempted to install an application via the Microsoft Store after receiving my brand new Surface Book. I found a fix to my specific issue here. The relevant bits are:

Code:
As you are unable to install an app from the Windows store, I suggest you to try the below and check if it helps.Method 1: Run WSReset.exe .

Press Windows+R key to open Run boxEnter wsreset.exe in the Run command and then tap or click OK.Restart your computer and check.
If resetting Windows Store cache does not help. Try the below,
Method 2: Re-register Windows Store by running the following commands in a CMD window started as Administrator:
Follow the below steps.

Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in the search bar.Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.Then enter the chkdsk command

A:Microsoft Store is broken in Windows 10 and I can't fix it

Hi, you can (apparently- I've not tried it) remove store from current user or all users, but this is NOT RECOMMENDED
See:
Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
(To remove Store app from current account only - NOT RECOMMENDED)
Get-AppxPackage *windowsstore* | Remove-AppxPackage

(To remove Store app from all current accounts - NOT RECOMMENDED)
Code:

Get-appxpackage -allusers | where-object {$_.packagename -like "*windowsstore*"} | remove-appxpackage
(To remove Store app from new accounts created afterwards - NOT RECOMMENDED)
Code:
Get-appxprovisionedpackage ?online | where-object {$_.packagename ?like "*windowsstore*"} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage ?online

Naturally you're welcome to try and see how far you get, but I suspect you will end up doing a (relatively painless) in place upgrade install: I've seen a number of people struggling with apparently confined defects (myself included) for which one might think there should be an easy fix, and waste a considerable amount of time doing so.

Note that typically used Powershell commands from build 10586 break things rather than fix them now. Frustrating.

Hi,

The Microsoft Store on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 14 / Windows 10 version 1607) does not work. A screen capture is included in this post. The issue started a few weeks ago, before the last few updates. I have attempted several fixes that I have found on the Internet, all with no success. I have done the clear and reset fix - i.e. wsreset.exe. I have done several power shell command fixes with no success. The last thing I did was a system file system check - i.e. sfc /scannow and everything was fine. The issue occurs even on a newly created user. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have a new laptop with Windows XP SP2 on it, IE6 (though I use Firefox, not IE), and MS Office 2003 Student Edition. The latest update that popped up as "high priority" from Windows Update is this GDI+ Detection Tool (KB873374).

It sounds like you have to install it then run it and then visit MS Office website to check for updates...? Is this worth doing? Can it cause more problems than it will help? (I thought I've read about issues when updating MS Office with security patches...? And that you have to download yet something else to even check for Office security updates...?)

Or do Office security updates come through Windows Update, and I don't need to worry about this? (But if that's the case, then why even have this GDI+ thing available?)

I'm always worried about ending up with a bunch of conflicts with other programs like AVG, ZA, AutoGK, DVDShrink, etc. And I'm always hesitant to install something that has to run on my system.

I've got AVG and ZA, keep both up to date, and I have Automatic Updates turned on just to let me know when there's a critical update (so I don't have to visit the Windows Update site to get updates).

I was thinking I would only do the updates to Office that come through Automatic Updates and not worry about any others...

Also, what's the difference between Microsoft Update and Windows Update? Is it better to have Microsoft Update, or does that have its own set of problems associated with it? (A... Read more

A:Questions About Microsoft Gdi+ Detection Tool & Microsoft Update Vs. Windows Update

Well to start off the difference between windows update and microsoft update is as follows. Windows update is what originally comes with the computer and only updates the windows platform. If you choose to upgrade to the microsoft update it will check all of your microsoft programs for updates.
As far as going to the office website for updates... unless you want to install non-critical updates to your office suite then you shouldn't have to at all. Finally - that GDI+ detection tool is the little program microsoft uses to scan your computer for any of their products - that is if you use microsoft update and not the original windows update.
So if you like your computer to maintain critical updates by itself for the microsoft programs than yes use microsoft update and yes install the GDI+ decection tools.

Hope this helps you out!

Are there any ways to block the Microsoft store on Windows 10 Pro now that the official method by Microsoft was removed with the anniversary update? Or at the very least, is there a way to stop people from downloading and installing apps? Even though the user is logged on as a User, not Administrator, they can still install the app (but not traditional software executables). Is there a way I can maybe do this on the network level by blocking ports?

I do have some Enterprise licenses but I would rather not have to waste them if the computer already comes with Windows 10 Pro.

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

Hi guys/girls
I finally bit the bullet and upgraded to windows 8 last week after having purchased it about a year ago. Install was fine and everything seems to be working. However, that was until i tried to downlaod an app.

At first it gave me error code 0x800706ba, in all honesty i cant remember what i did to stop that error. I do know however there were 15 app updates which i accepted and they worked fine, i cant find them now i don't even know if they all worked. After this I'm now getting the error that my connection is too slow. I know that my download speed is over 20mb so that cant be the cause. I tried disabling avg internet security 2013 but that did nothing. My windows firewall is on My clocks synced to windows, synced my licenses, Ive I'm using a live account,Ive even set my bandwidth limit to 0%. All i want to do is play solitaire!

I also cant access my app s in the store either, it takes forever loading only to tell me there's an error and to try again later. This is also what happens when i click on app updates.
I've tried refreshing but it tells me that there was and error and nothing was changed. When i click on find solution it just takes me to the desktop and does nothing.

is there anyone who knows how to solve this.

Ok, I am a new user, but not new to technology. This is my first Windows 8 experience. I just bought an Acer v5 touch screen laptop. It is really nice, and everything works really nice....except the Windows store.

When I click the windows store icon, everything pops up like it should. Then is when the trouble starts. It appears to be reloading itself over and over. I might have enough time to look at an app or two, and then it reloads itself back to the main store screen. it might do it every minute, or it might do it every second 10 times in a row.

Acer customer support asked me to refresh the system. So I went to the menu and did the recovery process they advised. Thant did not help, so then they wanted me to box up the laptop, that I opened yesterday, and send it in to them. Before I do that, I thought I would ask to see if anyone had any other thoughts or ideas.

Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for all the help.

A:Issues with Windows Store, new user, can you help?

Hello Pastor Josh, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Does it only do this while in the Store, and not with any other app?

Since you did do a factory recovery and it still does this, then it would seem it may be an issue with the laptop itself. It may be best to let Acer fix or replace it while still under warrantee.

Hello, Everyone -

Please forgive me if this has already been asked in a thread, but I did search through the forums quite a bit and could not find anything pertaining to this.... So again, I apologize if I am being repetitive...

Can anyone shed some light on a strange issue?

Currently, I have an ExoPC with Windows 8 RP 32-bit, a Dell Inspiron Duo with Windows 8 RP 32-bit, and also a Dell Latitude E6520 (i7 quad-core) with Windows 8 RP 64-bit.

I use the same Live ID to log-in to these machines at various times.

I have the exact same apps installed on all three, and I keep all three synced with my Live ID.

Normally, updates are never an issue. But recently, in the Store Metro UI Icon, it indicated that there was 1 update to an app. I would launch the Store, and on the Store main page in the upper right corner, it did indeed indicate that 1 update was available. Then, when I click on the "1 update available" link on that page, the next page of the Store loads, and inidicates "App updates - No updates available." and the only option is the back-arrow icon to go back.

This happened on all three devices, as I would log on to them at various times. The same message.

Well, now this is up to showing that 3 apps need updating, but when I follow the link I get the same message - "App updates - No updates available." and the only option is the back-arrow icon to go back. And, this is now on all three of my devices.
