    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    A widely known Win10 "activation" problem recently, jaclaz https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/08/windows_10_activation/ https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10s-activation-servers-suffer-issue-causing-pcs-lose-activated-status https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-users-left-baffled-and-mad-over-microsofts-activation-glitch/ https://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-confirms-windows-10-activation-issue-says-you-should-wait-523676.shtml though seems to be nearly fixed now: https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-users-seeing-their-erroneous-product-activation-issues-resolved/

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    check out this recent article from Softpedia news: https://news.softpedia.com/news/i-used-windows-7-for-one-week-and-now-i-like-it-more-than-windows-10-523609.shtml
  3. the topic title says it all -so much for downloading individual hotfixes from Microsoft as they have recently shut down the MS Hotfix service https://www.askwoody.com/2018/born-brinkmann-microsofts-hotfix-service-is-no-longer-available/ https://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-might-have-killed-off-windows-hotfixes-523605.shtml https://www.ghacks.net/2018/11/05/microsofts-hotfix-service-is-no-longer-available/

    How to access disk and folders in Windows 10?

    It is barely the same in all editions of Win10 as I checked myself - Personalize > Themes > desktop icon settings

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    well guys I think the OP should feel either justified or vindicated since the quality of these recent Win10 feature upgrades have seemed to have gone downhill. check out this recent article from The Register: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/10/23/microsoft_windows_10_crisis/ also check out one of Paul Thurrott's recent articles from his web site: https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/189344/windows-10-version-1809-suffers-from-yet-another-data-loss-bug

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    for this month for my relative's old Win8.0 32bit/x86 computer (don't ask why I'm using a 32bit version of Win8 - I have an old Intel D101GGC board on that PC using an Intel Pentium D cpu with 2gigs of RAM), I'll apply the KB4462929 monthly rollup (I'm more bold & daring than you Jody since I'm not afraid to install any recent monthly rollups) as well as the newest flash update and will skip the .NET 4.6.2 security updates for October

    .NET Framework 4.7.2

    .4.7.2 not really necessary unless brand new specific apps actually require it - so far I found none. staying with .NET 4.5 Jody? better off going with .NET 4.6.2 in the long run as I use that on an old Win8.0 computer instead of v4.5.x

    looks like the Windows 10 v1809 October 2018 Update seems to be released prematurely as a bunch of serious problems came up: https://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-prepares-re-release-windows-10-october-2018-update https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-october-2018-update-problems-complaints https://www.windowscentral.com/fix-blue-screen-death-after-getting-october-patch-tuesday-windows-10 (warning: do NOT install nor update to the 1809 version if using any HP brand computer...yet) https://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-has-pulled-windows-10-october-2018-update-users-files-go-missing

    KB4025338 is not compatible with Home edition 1507

    ask somebody with an active MSDN or visual studio (VS) subscription to get the LTSB 2015 (v1507) version (normally licensed to some enterprise users or those having valid volume licenses) for you, cc333. otherwise use google and move along
  12. check if you have the KB4090450 security update installed - that was made for Server 2008 SP2 (and was the official "Spectre" patch released mid-March 2018). remove it, reboot and see what happens
  13. before doing anything else, the very first update is to install the latest available Servicing Stack update (SSU) for Win8.1 manually download & install KB3173424 servicing stack update; also install KB3184143 update and run GWXControlPanel or Never10 to prevent any unwanted upgrades to Win10 for Win8 (or Win8.0) manually download & install KB3173426 servicing stack update and reboot; from past experiences with Win8, I had to restart the computer after installing the KB3173426 update edit: btw, the KB3110329 update does need to get installed, regardless of order (and whether the latest cumulative rollup is installed or not) as it is offered thru WU (windows update) on Win8/8.1 OSes
