Hi Kinyip,

Glad you got it sorted out! :thumbsup:

Yes, from past experience the Repair Install never touches .NET Framework, so that's usually left in place. It does revert back to IE8 though...

Good point actually, as all mine have been fresh installs in VMs not repairs. I haven't actually done a Repair Install since around 2013 though. :D

Strange, I've never got Windows update working on a new install over the last year, even with the newest update agent. v7.6.7600.320 was pushed out in 2012 and they didn't fix the issue until the...

Hello Efdy,

After you've done a repair install, you'll notice Windows Update will be broken. It'll just sit on "Checking for updates" for hours.

To fix this, take a look at the instructions I...

I really don't see how any of this is ridiculous? The point of the original post was to ask people what they're going to do after Windows 7 reaches EOL. Some people are going to continue using...

Just a quick headsup - the April rollup reappeared in my update list again today, so it might have been reissued.
I always hide them on patch tuesday as I use the Security-only updates. So, if it's...

15 years :what: That's impressive! I did do a job working nights once - I only lasted a year! :roflmao: Just couldn't get my body adjusted to it, and missed my nightlife, so went back to a day job.

No need to apologise ;)

Brink's tutorials are very thorough and cover a lot of questions/issues that may arise, and things to be aware of before you go ahead with it. Somebody might be able to...

I'm not 100% sure when it comes to dual booting with XP. I haven't used XP on a system for a few years now. I do still have XP in a Virtual Machine, but it very rarely gets booted up now.

Hi Efdy,

Seems you're still having issues. Have you tried uninstalling the January rollup? A lot of these update issues seem to have started in January for some users. You could try uninstalling...

It'll be a sad day when Windows 7 reaches EOL. :( I'll continue to use Windows 8.1 until 2023, but I'll miss 7.
Unfortunately, I like many others have lost faith in MS. I wouldn't be at all...

Hi Riley,

If you're going down the Windows Security-only route the IE11 updates have to be installed separately. However, unlike the Windows Security-only updates which have to be installed every...

Thanks Shawn!

Installed earlier and it appears to supersede KB4100480 as that one has disappeared from the update list of my 64-Bit VMs. So April's security updates must include the Total Meltdown...

If you're only using your systems in a home environment and haven't had any network issues after you installed the March update, then I wouldn't worry about the order they're installed tbh. I've only...

If you're going down the Rollup route, then I would advise just skipping the March rollup completely. They've been pulled from Windows update anyway. It's been a bit of a disaster for patches this...

Not for me, but the March Rollup has never appeared in my list. And since some articles were stating it was pulled, I can only assume it wasn't reissued.

But, still no sign of update KB4100480....

Still nothing here for me. I've never been offered the March rollup either. Even though I do hide them, it's still never been offered to me. :confused: Think that one might have been pulled though.
