Im finishing up a client PC but wanted to check first.

It seems fine. I have it on one live computer (this laptop).

Depending on your OS, there are two 'fixes' in this update.

From KB3095649:
[Quote]

Issues fixed in this update


  • Removes the Touch Hardware Quality Assurance (THQA) certification verification check in the Win32k.sys driver in Windows 8.1.
  • Font files remain open by the system, and can't be deleted when they're used in a call to CreateScalableFontResource in Windows Server 2012 R2.
[Unquote]


So Windows leaves Files open after they are called by CreateScaleableFontResource.


Looks like they are doing some CYA in software, as there is no mention of Windows 7 in the KB.


My guess is the files get left open in WIn 7 as well. Won't cry if the fix does prevent crashes.

I have it also and I'm wondering the same thing.

KB3095649 is one of the updates
Attachment 374053
The only difference I see is the one I have and the one from Layback's link are the same size (1.5MB) the one you're showing for 8.1 is 3.3. I'm going to hide mine and see if MS comes up with a more valid description for Windows 7.


Anybody know if it is rookie day in Redmond?

I'm just hiding the damn misery KB. until Microsoft can explain what it is and who should have it. I hope the term (bend over) isn't in the explanation.

It appears completely irrelevant to my Windows 7 standalone machines, and as an unchecked optional update with no relevance to me it goes straight into the "hidden" dump.

FWIW, I installed it as well, no problems here.
