I keep forgetting I even have that at the bottom of my posts as I've had my signature display settings set to disabled for about 4 years now!

Really must change that!

Uh Oh

Luckily I haven't even applied February's patches yet.

Shortly after the patch appeared, we started hearing from admins that both the pushed Monthly Rollup and the download-and-manually-install Security-only patch, KB 4088878, were causing problems with IP addresses on servers’ virtual Network Interface Cards (vNICs). After applying the update, the server — and sometimes individual machines — simply dropped off the network because their manual IP addresses had been altered.

Holy crap! Glad I held off until the hardware repairs on this machine were finished, now that article explains why the rollup disappeared from my WU dialogue and I was just left with the Malicious Software tool. As well as the CPU, as mentioned in the above posts, had to clear the CMOS before it would boot again. I knew there was nothing wrong with my Win7 OS, when it wouldn't boot from the Linux CD and USB dongle when the DVD was/still is, set as first boot device. Still have to use the contact cleaner I bought on the DIMMS but they seem OK for now.

Edit: Still have the February rollup in WU history, must have missed the memo on having to manually retrieve the Security-only ones, so I must be out of those since January. Seems better to trust my A-V efforts, MalwareBytes and keeping a tight reign on the firewall, indeed after the CPU replacement, had to reset permissions on some of my utilities, can't figure out why but better safe than sorry.

After the disastrous results from January's Security only updates that reduced my computer to an almost unusable mess (I had to restore the image I made before the update to get my computer back) and the reports I'm reading about the March one, I've given up on MS updates for now (maybe forever). MS was messed up enough under Ballsmore (sic) but it has really gone south under Nutella (sic).

Windows updates definitely seem to be getting more hit & miss as the months go by.

This is exactly the reason (well one of them) why I wouldn't jump to Windows 10. No way do I want forced updates with MS track record lately. Yes, images do solve the issue, but we shouldn't have to be going through all that for a botched update in the first place!

Hi,
Yeah 10 I mostly only benchmark with it so I spend more time restoring system images than using 10 :)
7 is still a daily driver security risks or not :)
Have good antivirus and turn off remote desktop features and good judgement will have to work because this is getting beyond silly as hell :/

I still dream of an alternate universe where the Tramiel brothers actually listened to their users and came out with an open architecture machine, like a TT Plus, with a Motorola 68060, no restrictions on amounts of RAM [unlike Windows] the OS protected inside a set of ROM chips, high rez colour because the killer apps were already there, apps like Keyboard Controlled Sequencer, etc. All it needed was some kind of universal font converter. Alas though, the company folded in '98 before they had the chance to try Motorola's 64 bit power PC chip. Atari Computers, a separate entity from Atari Games, was popular in Canada and Europe but couldn't crack the US market where Apple was the juggernaut. It was a real tight community too.

This not listening to users is not endemic to Microslop alone. Just sayin', while waxing nostalgic .

If a car had defects the manufacturer would have to fix/replace it.

When are AMD & Intel going to replace our defective CPUs?

Why hasn't MS been forced to:
  • Recall W10 due to the ridiculous number of defects in it?
  • Pay compensation to everyone whose time hasn't been wasted?

Until IT corporations are treated the same, as corporations that make physical products are treated, nothing will change.
