  1. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    I like your thinking greenhillmaniac. And thanks for your feedback dencorso. I'll remain calm
  2. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Yikes! Should I be worried about this, or treat it like FUD (which is a mindset I usually don't like to subscribe to) Still awaiting a bios update, but it appears HP is taking its sweet time. since it's an old machine, that may not come to pass.
  3. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    I posted this over at Windows 8. Do we know if the latest patches prevent being affected by Spectre and Meltdown? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072698/windows-server-guidance-to-protect-against-the-speculative-execution
  4. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Am I getting this right: that the recent patches for Windows Server 2012 and 2008 do not mitigate the effects of Spectre and Meltdown? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072698/windows-server-guidance-to-protect-against-the-speculative-execution
  5. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Can anyone answer how far back the cumulative updates go? So If I update to January 2016, can install the most recent cumulative update, and pretty much cover the last two years?
  6. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    I was just about to install these greenhillmaniac. They look to be the same: IE 10 Cumulative Security Update (KB4056568) Security Only Update (KB4056899) Should I just wait for the ones to come down today? Or should I install both?
  7. Looked it up Jaclaz. I don't thinks so (regarding Quantum Pixels) If I am using the Generic PnP Monitor (in the absence of a devote driver), am I really missing anything?
  8. So I have a Samsung 213T LCD Monitor, which I believe is 21.5" and is the largest 4:3 monitor I've ever used. Is it actually 5:4? I'm not sure. I like a large conventional screen because it allows more vertical real estate (better for scrolling web pages). Not as many sites use the full width, so it works out better for me. I'm set to a 1600x1200 (I think that's UXGA). I like it though.
  9. Darn! After an update it just resets to the old location and puts new updates there.
  10. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    So if one installs Vista fresh, will updates actually work without any patching, or just slowly?
  11. And now my flatter Windows 8 visual style with colours on the background windows and captions. Whenever I use this style, I change the Classic Shell theme to flat
  12. Well I don't exactly qualify as I'm on Windows 8, but here's a couple of my simple edited visual styles. The first one is a Vista look-alike.
  13. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Oh well I dove in and installed my updates. I have a Vista-based VS enabled so it doesn't look like Windows 8, but it is
  14. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Well, I find it interesting that December's security-only update (KB4054523) for Server 2012 is only 1.4 MB. Wonder what's in it that makes it so small. I suppose I always worry that Microsoft will find a way to kill off what we're doing in this thread.
