how to protect now that KB3097877 gone & turned off microsoft updates?

Hello!

I was unable to log in with the Tues 11/11/15 update. I could only turn on with windows system restore to a date before 11/11. Once I logged in, after researching & frantic backing up, I discovered that KB3097877 was the culprit, I uninstalled it and changed my Windows Update settings (see image below) and so far, my computer was able to restart. I have made a restore point, 2 system backups & 2 bootable WinPE dvds using EaseUS just in case (altho I have never had to recover or disc boot my computer & am unfamiliar with how to do so)

how to protect now that KB3097877 gone & turned off microsoft updates?-wu-settings-11-13-15-12.10-am.jpg

Here are my questions

1) Now that I have turned off microsoft updates
A - How do I protect myself from vulnerabilities? Is Kaspersky Internet Suite 2016 enough? I read elsewhere that the re-issue did not fix the login loop & I was afraid to download the re-issue.
B - How do I turn microsoft updates back on again when the KB3097877 issue has been fixed? I was not able to simply recheck "turn on microsoft updates", will I ever be able to turn them on again?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2) How do I screen updates & prevent KB3097877 from coming back without completely turning off my updates? Is hiding it enough?
-----------------------------------
3) Do you think Microsoft will release another fix? If so, do you think it will be soon?
-----------------------------------------
I have tried to be calm, concise & brief in this post- but in all honesty, I'm quite frazzled and out of my league. I'm resourceful, but this is not my area of expertise & each step of the way I have had to google things like "what is BIOS?" and "how to boot from a WinPE disc" after googling "what does WinPE mean?" lol

I had planned to launch an online eCommerce site next month & can not afford to get a new Win 10 computer. I hope u guys can forgive the vent & thx for listening.

I truly appreciate any advice & help.

they fixed and re-released that patch and i installed mine with no problem this morning. (then again, i also unplugged the wacom bamboo one, which might also have been a source of the logon problem) you don't need to disable windows update altogether, you can set it to check but not d/l + install and even hide that particular update for a few more days to see if they add more fixes. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3097877 has a lot more info now. have a read and see if it helps.

Thanks for replying!

To re-enable the Microsoft Update options, I read elsewhere that installing Microsoft Silverlight and making sure after installation that the box for receiving Microsoft updates is checked. I already had Silverlight installed, so I uninstalled then reinstalled, made sure the box was checked & the Microsoft Updates came back.

As for the KB3097877 issue, I just waited til late in the day & made sure others downloaded a good fix. Made lots of restore points & crossed my fingers, restored the hidden kb3097877 & it checked for updates. It worked ok & my computer restarted normally. Phew!
