Hello, I've recently installed 1-year-worth of Win7 Security-Only patches (due to the new Spectre exploits, mostly). It all went well, except for these things: 1- various programs set to run at Window’s start in the registry.. don’t seem to do it anymore. I’ve already tried to reset the startup option inside their settings, but nothing changed. Their keys are correctly present in the registry inside the \Run sections, as before the update. I’ve also noticed this new error in Eventviewer (related?): EventID 1530 1 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\[code here]: Process 936 (\Device\HarddiskVolume5\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\[code here] Error 1530 can happen at shutdown and it's usually a semi-harmless event ("by design"), but.. it's weird that I'm getting it at logon now. 2- some programs’ windows positions and sizes aren’t saved when I close and reopen them. I wonder if this is also caused by the event mentioned above. 3- I noticed another minor but annoying change about symbolic links. When traversing folders in the Navigation pane, now Windows Explorer always jumps to their original path (like a normal link), instead of remaining in its current tree structure. -- Has anyone experienced these issues too? Or have a clue on how to fix these? I already tried running sfc /scannow, but it didn’t find any integrity violation.
