    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 KB4462929 (I'm more bold & daring than you Jody) monthly rollup 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

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    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 for you, cc333. otherwise use google and move along
  6. 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
  7. 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

    Ways to spoof as W7 and avoid stuff?

    the last version of iTunes to support Vista was 12.1.3

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    make sure you block/hide the KB3163589 update on your Win8.0 computer, Jody! also don't forget to block/hide the KB2976978 update as well (oh yes there is also a version of KB2976978 for Win8.0 and not just for Win8.1) on a spare hard drive on my old HP m8417c computer running Win8.0 x64 Pro WMC edition, I got that annoying notice mentioned in MS support KB article 3163589, all because I may have accidentally installed that update thru Windows Update. I have uninstalled the KB3163589 update and have blocked it from being offered again from WU. I actually did run that GWX control panel app on that Win8.0 machine to change some reg entries so that I won't be upgraded to Win10

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    you will need either KB3020369 or KB3177467 servicing stack update installed first before installing newer updates beyond the KB3035131 and KB3033929 updates. go with KB3177467 as that one supersedes / replaces KB3020369. KB3035131 is an obsolete update as it is superseded / replaced by the KB3071756 update (MS15-085) for Win7 KB3071756 replaces KB3067505, KB3063858, KB3046049, KB3045999, KB3035131 updates

    Windows 7 Extended Security Updates

    reaction from this Neowin article and from this Techpowerup forums topic the extension seems to benefit mostly big business / enterprise users using Win7 Pro or Win7 enterprise editions and changes nothing for small business / home users / consumers as support for "home" versions of Win7 used by consumers still ends Jan. 14, 2020.
  13. Recently these articles came out mentioning about a Windows 95 app for recent Linux, Mac & Windows OSes: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/pining-for-windows-95-you-can-now-download-it-as-a-free-app/ https://www.neowin.net/news/you-can-relive-your-youth-with-windows-95-which-now-comes-as-an-electron-app https://www.zdnet.com/article/did-you-love-windows-95-its-now-a-free-app-for-macos-windows-linux/

    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    the feeling is mutual, Dibya. I already gotten rid of all Java stuff from my friend's XP computer several years ago - never looked back I may also get rid of Adobe Flash on his XP computer by start of 2020

    Official Windows XP SP4 mentioned by Microsoft

    but in reality XP SP4 never panned out that way
