  1. I'm in the same boat as Dave-H - so, how can we prevent "Microsoft Update" from displaying "KB4457046 required" again and again?
  2. @Bersaglio: Does the new Equation Editor update also work for people like me which are running WindowsXP SP3 with the "POSReady 2009 hack", "Office 2003" and "Compatibility Pack for Office"?
  3. Thank you for the report, Dave-H, I did the same - including checking with Baseline Security Analyser -, and after had having to reinstall KB2756918 one more time, it did not show up again! Excellent :-)
  4. Well, apparently I'm in the same boat as Dave-H: on my system, only KB2756918 is wanting to install over and over again, too! So, Dave-H, could you please give a feedback in detail which way you did go to get rid of this problem on your main machine - following heinogandas' and/or Mathwiz' suggestion(s)? Thank you in advance!
  5. Links for English KB3033890 Updates for Windows Media Players 9, 10 and 11 respectively: http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/csa/csa/secu/2015/06/windowsmedia9-kb3033890-x86-enu_e13a3146c2c43729ffae909c352767668fefc267.exehttp://download.windowsupdate.com/d/csa/csa/secu/2015/06/windowsmedia10-kb3033890-x86-enu_b665ecb831735243758251263bc41c6d21545607.exehttp://download.windowsupdate.com/c/csa/csa/secu/2015/06/windowsmedia11-kb3033890-x86-enu_ced67d7e3fb172dda1489a80f84f2e6c1f18b9d9.exeUnfortunately, these updates don't install on non-english Windows XP: "Setup cannot update your Windows Media Player Series file because the language installed in your system is different from the update language" :-( Do you think that MS will fix the problem with the messed all non-english KB3033890 updates?
  6. Adjust PE checksum http://www.coderforlife.com/projects/utilities/#PEChecksum A XP at a virtual machine does boot still. Edited: Ignore this. Try you patch. A different approach, the same patch: search for 8b cb 8b d7 e8 expect address about 55D1F find e.g. E8 22 7E FF FF at 55D1F search for 8b d7 8b cb e8 expect address about 55D2A find e.g. E8 EC 04 00 00 at 55D2A Patch 55D1F : E8 EC 04 00 00 Patch 55D2A : E8 22 7E FF FF Yeah, that was exactly the result I got by doing it my way, but I didn't adjust PE checksum - after using the tool you suggested, I didn't get a BSOD anymore when booting, but the font corruption wasn't cured. So, as Dave-H said that he had to re-do the ClearType tuning, I tried this, too, by installing Microsofts Cleartype Tuner Powertoy. But then I got BSOD after BSOD, so in the end, I had to recover my imaged file :-( Has anyone an idea what did go wrong?
  7. I tried it today with replacing my win32k.sys file with the one I patched as described in my previous posting by using a BartPE CD, but after reboot unfortunately got a BSOD with the following message: "Stop: c000021a (Fatal System Error) The intial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of c000026c". So, I guess, I will have to use my patched german win32k.sys file and follow harkaz instructions: But the problem is that I don't know where to start when it comes to this part: - How do I create a catalog file? - How do I calculate the checksum? - How do I update the update.ver file in my language? - Where is the language-specific update.exe located, and how can I patch it to accept a modified update.inf file? - How do I get language-specific installation files? Many questions, I know, but as I'm totally clueless, my last hope is that someone can point me in the right direction. Is there any tutorial in this forum that could give me some hints?
  8. If I got it right, I could also directly patch my german win32k.sys v 5.1.2600.6712 (which I got after installing KB3013455) by the following steps: 1. Open the win32k.sys in a hex editor. 2. Go to Offset 55D1F and note its and the following 4 bytes values. 3. Go to Offset 55D2A and note its and the following 4 bytes values. 4. Replace the values at Offset 55D1F with the ones I noted under step 3. 5. Replace the values at Offset 55D2A with the ones I noted under step 2. 6. Save and close the hex editor. 7. Change the version number from 5.1.2600.6712 to minimum 5.1.2600.6713. I would prefer to do this with "ResHacker", see here: http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker There's a section called "Version info" which you can edit. 8. Replace the win32k.sys with the one I patched Could someone confirm that this is the right way to do this? If yes, I will try this tomorrow, making an image before of course :-) But I'm also wondering whether I will be running into problems when trying to modify/overwrite the system file win32k.sys - what can I do in the case that Windows XP kicks in and tries to restore the file automatically from the dllcache/i386 directory?
  9. Yeah, that would be great! I'm using a german version of Windows XP, but can't install the patch because of the warning message "Setup cannot update your Windows XP files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language." Changing the regional and language settings via the control panel has no effect, unfortunately :-(
