  1. Is YouTube too big to fix everything? Google CEO Sundar Pichai Google's issues with YouTube will never be totally solved. Or at least, that's impression Google CEO Sundar Pichai suggested in a CNN interview. Google-owned YouTube has been struggling with all sorts of content that YouTubers have flagged, including fake and conspiracy videos and lewd comments on children's videos. YouTube has responded with more human monitors, new policies and an aggressive machine learning push to rid some of this content from YouTube. “We’ve gotten much better at using a combination of machines and humans,” Pichai told CNN's Poppy Harlow. “So it’s one of those things, let’s say we’re getting it right 99% of the time, you’ll still be able to find examples. Our goal is to take that to a very, very small percentage well below 1%.” Pichai said Google probably can’t get that to 100%. YouTube receives 400 hours of new content uploaded every minute, which makes true monitoring of the content impossible. The Google CEO compared it to credit card systems. "There’s some fraud in that....Anything when you run at that scale, you have to think about percentages.” However, he said Google will make "significant progress” on this and that “enforcement will get better.” Source
  2. Today, Microsoft confirmed that HP keyboard driver (version with compatibility issues on Windows 10 versions 1803 and 1809 was recently pushed out to some HP devices and it resulted in a blue screen error. Microsoft has already pulled the driver from Windows Update and if you own HP computers, you will not receive the keyboard driver anymore. Microsoft is also rolling out Windows 10 KB4468304 that would remove the incompatible driver from devices with a pending reboot. HP is also aware of the issue and the company is working on this issue. In the support document, Microsoft explains that HP keyboard driver (version has a known incompatibility with certain HP devices and it may result in a blue screen error: WDF_VIOLATION. “In working with HP, Microsoft has identified an HP driver with known incompatibility with certain HP devices on Windows 10 versions 1803 and 1809. On October 11, Microsoft removed the driver from Windows Update to reduce the number of devices affected. Additionally, we have released KB 4468304 to remove the incompatible driver from devices pending reboot. HP is actively working on this issue,” Microsoft explains. Source

  4. Most people are on the patch right now. These patches release a small dose of "security achievement" to last until the next patch is available. That feeling of having done something about security is hard to deny which is why so many people crave it. Luckily for the patch addicts out there, they’re also a compliance requirement. For those of you who don’t know, a compliance requirement is apparently when a bunch of influential companies can suggest the same bad practice, usually involving some software they sell, which makes it a best practice. Then, they all donate the time of an employee to help write those best practices into some compliance checklists. Then some money is transferred to Panama. And that, kids, is how a bill becomes a law. I may have missed a step or two but you get the idea. Anyway, my point is that patches are easy to do, cheap to get, and make people feel good for a little while. But they wear off really quickly, and you’ll need more in no time flat - they're kind of like the information security equivalent of nasal spray. Is it Any Wonder Why We Call Patches a “Fix”? Software companies, those patch dealers, love the patch. It gives them a way to change their code after it's already been paid for and put on your machine. This way they can provide new features and fix vulnerabilities or, still under the guise of the security update, address their own internal policy issues by removing content you already had, change their corporate strategic models and direction by removing parts of your application to be re-sold back to you as add-ons, or to better track how their software is being used - which turns their customers into unpaid focus groups. So, for as much cost and expense as it takes to make a patch to fix problems, the patching process has also allowed the software makers to have a much longer interactive life with customers than most other product makers get. Therefore, the high level of social acceptance patching has achieved has truly been a boon for the software industry that other industries would love to have. Imagine if the clients of the dental industry sent three requests a day to them to see if they could get a cleaning yet. Or if car owners checked in every 24 hours with their local dealership to see if there's a new model available yet to upgrade to. So, the patching process is special. Patching forms an unprecedented addictive behavior that has now become part of so many routines that people rarely question its value in their lives. That puts patching alongside caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine as the socially acceptable, short-lived-effect, dependency-building, legal drugs if used in moderation along with a healthy lifestyle - and there's the catch. We are told patching is good. It feels good. We see it as fixing something which we are told is broken: there's a hole, bad people can take advantage of it, and now they can't. It fixes a definite, specified problem. And it feels good and safe and comfy to take care of problems, like a raccoon washing moldy garbage in a stream before eating it. All good things. I am not alone in having patch regrets. Yes, many, many, many people have patched or updated parts of a system only to find it got worse. Sometimes you can roll back a patch. Sometimes you only think you can. That’s patch regret. Furthermore, when patching fails to help us we are reminded by the software makers that it was us who failed and not the patches. Which is unfair because we are told specifically that we need a patch management process to be securek. We are threatened by our security-conscious cyberhygiene-amatic peers that failure to patch is patching to fail. Okay that phrase doesn’t work, but you get the point. If we don’t patch we’re wrong, if we don’t patch according to a patch management process that has us test the patches before production we’re wrong. And if we patch all the right ways we’re still wrong when there’s a breach. Why Patching is Just Part of the Solution It’s because patching is just one part of the solution, as the patch-pundits are quick to remind us, that includes antivirus, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, strong authentication, encryption, physical locks, disabling of scripting languages, reduced personal information on social networks, and security awareness training as part of a healthy security lifestyle solution. I don't know about the rest of the world, but I've seen this before. As a kid, my breakfast cereal of frosted, chocolaty, Super Corn Crispies was also healthy for me as long as it was part of a nutritious breakfast that they showed right on the box which also included fresh-squeezed orange juice, bran toast, turkey bacon, egg-whites, and a multi-vitamin pill. At some point I realized I wasn't eating the Super Corn Crispies as part of a nutritious breakfast, but I was eating it because I wanted to. And if I stopped eating it, it didn't really take away from my nutritious breakfast. Growing up and being healthier actually meant realizing the difference between what is filling - like three bowls of that cereal - and what feels fulfilling - like an actual nutritious breakfast that is significantly lower in things with a shelf-life of a century. So what is patching really? In the security industry we are told it is part of defense in depth. We are told that it is a specific deterrent or end to a specific threat. We are reminded it’s part of the security process. We are educated that it is one tactic in a strategy to minimize risk. We are cajoled into thinking it's a measure to maintain operations. And we are informed that it's one of the many, many controls which security appears to have. Although, that last one more than the others is due to the vocabulary problem of the security industry. Now the security industry gets occasional complaints for seemingly making up their own words. And they have. Additionally, the security industry that has altered many of the definitions of these words, which explains why it's so hard to find two security professionals to agree on some standard definitions. Although I understand other industries of similar scientific maturity (like the ghost-hunting industry and the bigfoot-hunting industry we see so much on TV these days) have the same problem. Like where else in any other industry besides cybersecurity and ghost-hunting does a firewall not protect against fires? (FYI - in ghost-hunting a firewall protects people against the icy, soul-sucking touch of a Specter. Look it up.) The security industry commonly states that the patching process is an Administrative Control. We know it is part of a business strategy for software companies; however, for the security professionals and the end-users, I'm not so sure it is. In the security trenches we know patching doesn't help maintain a baseline because it changes it. Yes, patching changes code which changes operations. That's why patching is part of Change Control and is tested on non-critical servers first. This is a very important point because you design your operations to be a certain way and if you're changing them constantly with patches, how can you be sure of what you have and what it's capable of at any given moment? You can't. So, no wonder we have such a hard time to secure our operations if we are always changing them. We also know that patching doesn't eliminate or reduce harm on its own. At best it either closes an interactive point or fixes a flaw in an existing operation. Rarely does patching introduce new controls, but it's possible that a particular patch integrates a solution with controls to an existing service like packet filtering, encryption, or input sanitation. But it's not the patching or the patch which is the control because it itself doesn't interact with the threat. The patch is only a way to add or take away code. It makes a change to how things currently run, just like policies and security awareness training do (also administrative controls) to help achieve a security strategy. Wait, aren't things that help achieve a strategy called tactics? So it turns out that patching may not actually be an Administrative control? Actually it’s not. It is not and should never be an administrative control. Maybe that’s just another mislabeling issue but it’s a pretty big one if the wrong people are doing it for the wrong reasons. So, in conclusion of Part 1 of this helpful patching article, just like all the other patching articles that are out there, you should be aware that there’s a whole lot more to patching than fixing a bug or a vulnerability. Yes, there’s so much more going on. And we’ll explore it even further in part 2 until we’ve beaten this topic to death, and then keep beating it until you realize that patch management is not the fun party game you’ve grown to love and respect. Welcome to the sequel of “Getting Off the Patch” where we explore the point of patching for fun and profit. We are continuing with a part 2 because so much was left unsaid in part 1, like: “So what’s the deal, are you supposed to patch or aren’t you?” and “No, seriously, you gonna tell us?” and “Dude, quit it already, nobody likes you!” In part 1 we discussed a lot of cool stuff like how patching may just be a form of brand recognition marketing. You should have read it. And we ended with how patching is a security tactic and not an Administrative control. So let’s pick up from there…. If patching is a tactic towards a particular security strategy, how can that be bad? I never said it was all bad. There are reasons where patching makes sense just like there are times when it makes sense to have that third diazepam pill, park diagonally across two parking spots, or hide in a dumpster - and not coincidentally they all involve raccoons. For example, one overall business strategy is to have perfectly working operations to optimize returns. But optimized returns rely on freedom from costly efforts or unexpected losses (security), and freedom from unpleasant surprises (trust) that force you to drop what you're doing to deal with it. To achieve this, you can pick many tactics and just one of them is patching. So, consider this: Patching may seem to be one of the cheaper tactics towards security since most patches are free and are no-brainers to install. But in what scenarios is it still cheaper after you count in the time of patching, testing, or not testing and fixing all the other software that breaks? Perhaps we can argue that the cost and ease to install makes it most suitable for home computers in this trade-off. So, home-users with non-critical missions feel free to breathe easy, it’s not about you. The Problem of Patching Patching may seem to be more secure because you are effectively interfering with a known vulnerability. But is it the most secure way since it isn't timely because patches come much after the fact and don't address zero days? We can argue that the modicum of protection provided by patching is better for the systems that apply no controls or poor controls, which is the case for many home users. We can also argue that the patch holds for the life of a system, so while it may come late, it never leaves. Other controls aren’t so gallant and require regular maintenance. Patching may also seem to be the way of increasing trust in your service because it is addressing an uncovered flaw. That means you can have more confidence in it. But does adding unknown code and untested changes to your operations give you more reason to trust it, especially considering it is coming from the source that made it wrong to begin with? Perhaps if your network is nearly perfectly homogeneous with only that company's software, so that their stuff is guaranteed to have been tested together (even that’s a rarity though) and therefore not break. Although ANY third-party drivers or applications - or your personally configured environment, or unique processes in how you use the patched application, or service - may still change. Ask yourself if your own experience has shown you that by installing the patches, you're free from troublesome surprises? I don't think we can argue this even for home users because many of them are sick and tired of the undesirable side effects patching may bring. They just don't know how to get off the patch. Patching vs. Balance of Controls Now compare the previous considerations to you taking the time/money to install the right balance of controls so that you never have to patch again unless you want some new feature. You make sure the systems are properly hardened with least privilege, unneeded services off, processes separated, and then the systems separated over the network. You keep proper, regular, tested back-ups, encrypt important stuff, lock out generally writable directories, and so on. You know what I mean by now. So if you do this, then you know which reasons you have to trust your operations, which means no surprises because you can prepare in advance for the problems you know you could have. For example, if you didn't install any continuity controls against DoS attacks due to cost, then you need to create emergency response procedures (an actual administrative control) for handling DoS attacks to get you back and running again as quickly as possible. Most CISOs would love to have this! They would love to feel this safe, because they really are safer. They would love to have less surprises that are actually scares. Unfortunately, the more common way is NOT doing that and instead relying on a few purchased security devices and automatic patching. So let me ask you: How many of the last thousand vulnerability notices went out that included information on which controls prevented or mitigated the exploit? When's the last time you saw a vuln report say, “Our tests showed that the bug in Application X lead to a remote root except when Application X directory is read-only?” They don't. If they did, the patch management staff hearing about it would think, "Damn, I should probably make sure all application directories are least privilege!” Instead, they’re programmed by best practices to think, "Damn, root access? Well, let me sit on my hands here while I wait for the patch and hope nothing happens." Moving Beyond the Patch Unfortunately, what it comes down to is how well people know their operations so that they can secure them. Most IT staff have no idea even of their own business processes in the organization, let alone the big picture of the entire operations. So, their implemented security is just the off-the-seat-of-their-pants variety. They patch because then it's crazy not to. And in that case, I completely agree. Because if you’re winging it, then every little bit towards security counts. Plus, if something breaks, they can always blame the patch. What you have to think about here is that you should patch because you trust the software companies to know more about your operations than you do. Patch because you're so used to nasty surprises that you don't think another one will do anything to change your current self-medicated dosage of antacid and alprazolam. Patch because you know clearly that you are taking a short-cut now to save time for something more important until you get time to come back and do it right. You can add your own excuse here now, or you could just start working towards getting yourself off the patch. Source
  5. Apple has rolled out a security fix to older Macs in an effort to mitigate the risk from a vulnerability in modern chips. The technology giant on Tuesday released a fix for Meltdown, a flaw that can allow an attacker to read protected kernel memory, for the latest versions of macOS Sierra (10.12.6), and OS X El Capitan (10.11.6). macOS Sierra and its predecessor OS X El Capitan were not initially patched, with Apple opting to release a supplemental security update only for macOS 10.13.2 on January 8. Some criticized the company for effectively forcing customers to update their entire operating system in order to receive patches. Although updating systems is one of the most important ways to protect against security vulnerabilities, many do not update their systems for fear of breaking legacy software. Meltdown and Spectre, another chip vulnerability revealed at the same time, take advantage of a modern processor performance feature called speculative execution, which improves speed by operating on instructions which may be used in future. As we previously reported, a vulnerable processor predicts which path of a branch is most likely to be taken, and will speculatively continue execution down that path even before the branch is completed. If the prediction was wrong, this speculative execution is rolled back in a way that is intended to be invisible to software. Daniel Gruss, a security researcher who discovered the Meltdown bug, told ZDNet when the bug was first revealed that an attacker "might be able to steal any data on the system," including sensitive data, such as passwords. In the company's latest supplemental security update, Apple fixed 17 vulnerabilities in 15 separate bulletins. source
  6. Microsoft today released Windows 10 for PCs build 16226, the first new Fast ring build in almost two weeks, bringing a number of new features. But as always, there are a number of fixes, improvements, and known issues in the changelog, which you should always be aware of when installing a new build. Here's what got fixed and improved: If you were impacted by the issue causing your upgrade to get stuck or hung at around 33% trying to update to Build 16215, we fixed the issue and you should be able to upgrade to this build (Build 16226) without getting stuck at 33%. We fixed the issue causing PCs to bugcheck (GSOD) with inaccessible boot device on install, and the Windows Update error 0x80070643 after rollback. We fixed an issue preventing PDFs from opening in Microsoft Edge on some devices with enterprise configurations. We fixed the issue causing some PDFs and sites to open in a cropped view (zoomed in) in Microsoft Edge, causing part of the content to be inaccessible to the user. We fixed an issue from the previous flight where accented characters couldn’t be input properly into Win32 apps using the hardware keyboard. We fixed a Hyper-V issue resulting in some Insiders not being able to connect to VMs in the last flight. We fixed an issue resulting in Start now working for a small percent of Insiders on the last flight. We’ve adjusted the application of Fluent Design in Start and Action Center to now be a touch more transparent and let more of the underlying color through. Along the way we also updated the Action Center to use the newer conscientious XAML scrollbar design. We fixed an issue where notifications in the Action Center lost their outline if acrylic fell back to having no transparency, for example on battery saver. We also fixed an issue where the Action Center background might become 100% transparent. We fixed an issue from the previous flight wherein you couldn’t expand notifications displayed in the Action Center. We fixed an issue resulting in some inbox apps unexpectedly appearing to be missing after upgrading to 16215 (although Store said they were installed). Snipping tool is now natively per-monitor DPI aware! That means it should no longer be blurry when used in mixed DPI environments, or when changing DPI. We’ve gone through all our image resource files and removed unneeded XMP metadata. We fixed an issue where some of the older control panel dialogs were unexpectedly showing grey sections instead of white. We fixed an issue from recent flights where selecting “Restart” in the power options list with a pending update had the same effect as “Restart and Update”. When you right-click the network icon in the system tray, “Open Network and Sharing Center” will now open Network & Internet Settings. We fixed an issue where the Start Fresh page was included in Microsoft Edge’s recovery store, leading to potentially multiple Start Fresh pages being visible in each window after Microsoft Edge was reopened. We fixed an issue where the red heart emoji was displayed in superscript. We fixed an issue resulting in ink lag and short ink strokes not being detected in recent flights. We fixed an issue where there was an unexpected Microsoft Text Input Application visible in Start after using the touch keyboard. We fixed an issue from the last flight where Chinese IMEs would hang when typing into Cortana. We also fixed an issue that generally could make the Chinese IMEs hang when typing on the last flight. We fixed an issue for some input methods in the last flight resulting in certain apps crashing if you switched to that input method while the app had focus. We fixed an issue where Cortana’s search box could end up in the wrong place if you set focus to it then brought up the Emoji Panel. We’ve updated the casing of the Settings category “Update & security” to now be “Update & Security” based on your feedback. We also fixed an issue from the last flight where it might hang when you tried to open this category. We fixed an issue where the OS Build Info link on Windows Update Settings didn’t do anything when clicked. We fixed an issue resulting in the top border of UWP apps sometimes being an unexpected color. We fixed an issue from 16215 where our mini-surveys (we call SIUFs) weren’t popping after the computer had been locked and unlocked. We fixed an issue from 16215 where any external monitor connected to a DisplayLink dock wasn’t working and you’d just see a static logon screen. We fixed an issue from 16215 due to a driver issue where Wi-Fi wasn’t working on certain devices like the Surface Pro 1 and Surface Pro 2 and some USB devices. We fixed an issue from 16215 where printing wasn’t working due to having multiple copies of each printer after upgrading. Here are the known issues: If you have the .NET 3.5 Framework installed, updating to this build may fail and roll back to the previous build. As a workaround, uninstall .NET 3.5 before trying to update to this build and then reinstall .NET 3.5 after you update to this build. For more info, see this forum post. Auto-complete in URL bar of Microsoft Edge may fail on some devices, searching for a partial string instead of the autocompleted text picture. This issue will be fixed in an upcoming flight. Some UWP apps such as Twitter will crash on launch. Word 2016 will crash if you try to ink on it. You may notice some of your inbox apps are now displaying a name that looks like “ms-resource:” and are listed at the bottom of Start. We’re investigating. In the meantime, the app should still launch normally, it’s only the name resource that’s impacted. We’re investigating your reports that the battery status on certain laptops isn’t updating while the device is unplugged. Once again, it's very important to be aware of the known issues before installing a build from the Fast ring. For example, if you do a lot of inking on Word 2016, or you use the Twitter UWP app a lot and don't want to use the browser, you might want to skip this one. To install Windows 10 build 16226, head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring just yet, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and click 'Get started'. Article source
  7. Issue: Firefox freezes for a few seconds while Internet Download Manager (IDM) automatically catches a download after the user clicks on a downloadable link. Solution: When I updated Firefox to the latest version v53, the IDM integration module for Firefox was not supported anymore and IDM wasn't receiving any updates either. So I googled for IDM add-on compatibility with the latest version of Firefox and ended up with this site. I downloaded the add-on for v53 manually (direct installation of 3rd party add-on is not allowed by Firefox's latest versions, I guess) and installed it. Restart Firefox. Done. Comments: I have observed that the default add-on that IDM installed had a size around 600 KB but the add-on I have downloaded from the site is just 76.1 KB. I have no idea why the default IDM add-on have to be comparatively so bigger. Or, you can find the file inside the IDM installation folder in the programs itself. The file is named as idmmzcc3.xpi. (Courtesy - @IronY-Man & @straycat19) This fix is tested working with latest version of both Firefox (64-bit) and IDM. Please share your feedback. Thank you and Enjoy!
  8. Bypass For Windows Update Lock For Next-Gen Processors Found A first workaround for the blocking of Windows Update on Windows 7 or 8.1 PCs with next-generation processors has been discovered. Microsoft blocked the delivery of Windows Updates recently to Windows 7 and 8.1 devices powered by a next-generation processor. The company announced the support change in January 2017. Broken down to the essentials, it means that Intel Kaby Lake and AMD Bristol Ridge processors are only support by Windows 10, and not older versions of Windows. To hammer that home, Microsoft made the decision to block Windows Update on Windows 7 or 8.1 PCs with those next generation processors. The company introduced patches, KB4012218 and KB4012219 for instance, which introduced process generation and hardware support detection on Windows 7 and 8.1 systems. Windows users who run Windows Update get the unsupported hardware error prompt when they try to scan for and download the latest patches for their -- still supported -- operating system. Bypass for Windows Update lock for next-gen processors GitHub user zeffy made the decision to take a closer look at how the actual blocking is done on the operating system level. What he did was the following: Download the Patch KB4012218 from Microsoft. Extract the content of the MSU file using the expand command line tool. Expand basically extracts all files that are part of an update file so that you can analyze each individually. This resulted in a long list of files. He used PowerShell to filter the files for anything starting with "wu" to filter out Windows Update related files. He then ran diff tools to compare the binaries of the files in the new update file with those on the actual operating system. He discovered the dynamic link library wuaueng.dll, and found the two functions IsCPUSupported(void) and IsDeviceServiceable(void) in it. Now that he found the culprits that blocked the installation of updates on machines with next generation processors, he came up with a solution for that. His preferred solution jumps over the whole "IsDeviceServiceable(void)" body so that Windows Update is notified that the CPU on the machine is supported. The solution requires the patching of the dll file. He has uploaded the patched files for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to the GitHub project page. The source code has been made available there as well for you to check. The patches come as scripts that you just need to run to make the necessary changes. Windows Update should work just like before then even on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 systems with next generation processors Attention: it is recommended that you create a backup of the wuaueng.dll file before you patch it. Even better, create a backup of the system partition just to be on the safe side of things. One caveat of the method is that any new version of wuaueng.dll that Microsoft releases requires new patching. Microsoft may device other means to block updates on those systems as well in the future. (via Sergey) Now You: What's your take on Microsoft blocking updates for customer systems? Source
  9. There are both good news and bad news ahead for Kodi users. The good news is that Kodi has received a brand new update which brings the software to version 17.1. The bad news is there many technical difficulties reported, including problems with actually installing the update. A problem has been encountered Many voiced their concerns and in the end, Kodi addressed the issue through a tweet from its official Twitter handle to let everyone know that the company is aware of the situation and to assure everyone that a fix is on the way. Unfortunately for Kodi users, the issue is not in the hands of the developer but in the hands of Microsoft. It is now expected that Microsoft will release a fix for this problem as soon as possible. Partnering with Microsoft opens the way to Xbox In the aftermath of this inconvenience, many Kodi users are beginning to question the company’s new partnership with Microsoft and how it will eventually play out. The two companies are work well together and the future is promising after Kodi recently committed to Microsoft’s platform, which paves the way for an appearance on the Xbox. This is because Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform seeks to unite all services across its Windows and Xbox platforms by incorporating all aspects of the two platforms such as apps, games, media and anything in between. This means a good opportunity for Kodi to establish a presence on both. Those that haven’t gotten a chance to try the new 17.1 update are advised to hold off on doing so for the time being.

  10. AMD has confirmed the presence of a bug in its Zen-architecture Ryzen processors which allows any program to completely hang the system by executing an FMA3 instruction, but says that a microcode update is in the works to resolve the issue. The erratum in AMD's latest Ryzen processors was first spotted earlier this month when a little-known benchmark compiled for Intel's Haswell microarchitecture was executed on a Ryzen processor. With Ryzen offering effective feature parity with Haswell, this should have worked perfectly; in the worst case, an attempt to execute a Haswell-specific instruction on the Ryzen chip should have crashed the benchmark. Instead, the benchmark crashed the machine - hard. The problem was soon discovered to be entirely independent of any other hardware in the system and reproducible on Ryzen builds using different motherboards - meaning it was a flaw in the chip to blame. AMD has now confirmed that it understands the root cause of the problem, which is triggered when a program attempts to executive a fused multiply-add with three operands (FMA3) instruction typical to Intel processors rather than the fused multiply-add with four operands (FMA4) instruction usually used with AMD chips. There's good news, too: the company is working on a patch which it will distribute to motherboard manufacturers as an updated AMD Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture (AGESA) build, the company's name for the microcode which controls its processors. This build can then be integrated into firmware updates for each motherboard, either fixing the problem altogether or disabling FMA3 - AMD has not yet clarified which. Motherboard manufacturers have already received an updated AGESA build earlier this week, but it is not clear whether this release includes the FMA3 erratum fix.

  11. 1. Stop Auto Reboots Windows 10 updates are regular and seemingly never-ending, and pretty much out of the user's control (unless you turn off updates altogether, which is a bad idea). What's worse: if you don't reboot your PC after an update, Windows 10 eventually takes it upon itself to reboot for you. That's a good way to lose data in open apps. You can take advantage of a feature called Active Hours, which lets you schedule a time for reboots. But our brethren at ExtremeTech also found a solution via blogger : It involves going to Administrative Tools in the Control Panel (just type "Administrative Tools" into the Windows 10 search box). Choose Task Scheduler. In the left pane, click Task Scheduler Library and then navigate to Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator. In the middle pane, right-click on Reboot and select "Disable" from the menu. This doesn't stop the installation of Windows updates, but it will stop the reboot so you can do it on your timetable. (Windows 10 may also change this settingback; read on at ExtremeTech for how to prevent that.) Another option: freeware program shutdownguard will stop the restarts for you. 2. Prevent Sticky Keys If you hit the Shift key five times in a row, you activate Sticky Keys, a Windows feature that allows for keyboard shortcuts where you hit one key at a time instead of simultaneously (so it works with any combo that includes the Shift, Cntrl, Alt, or Windows keys). If you activate it without knowing—you'd have to hit "yes" in a dialog box without thinking—it can be seriously annoying. Prevent it from ever happening by hitting the Shift five times rapidly to bring up that very dialog box. Select Ease of Access Center > Set up Sticky Keys and uncheck the box next to "Turn on Sticky Keys when SHIFT is pressed five times." 3. Calm the UAC Down Ever since Windows Vista, User Account Control (UAC) has been there to protect users so they can quickly grant administrative rights to software programs that need it—specifically when installing or uninstalling . In the old days, when you went to do an install, the screen would suddenly dim and everything seemed to come to a halt, causing several (anecdotal, probably fictional) heart attacks amid the populace. UAC is still there in Windows and will still dim the desktop, but you have the option to turn it off, or at least prevent the screen dimming. Type UAC into the Windows 10 search box to get Change User Account Control Settings. The screen presents a slider with four levels of security, from never notify (bad) to always notify (annoying—it'll warn you when you make your own changes). Pick one of the middle options; the second from the bottom notifies you without the dimming scare tactic. With that option, you'll still get a dialog box confirmation with a yes/no option when you install things. 4. Delete Unused Apps Did you know you have a program in Windows 10 called Groove Music? Probably not, because the world uses other services. But now, you can get rid of it and a few others. You'll need the latest version of Windows 10 for this to work—but because updates are forced on you, that's probably not a problem! As of late in 2016, a few pre-installed apps can finally be deleted when you go into Settings > System > Apps & Features. Deletable apps include Mail and Calendar, Groove Music, Weather, and Maps. If your uninstall option is grayed out, you can go the DOS route, but it gets a little complicated and you should be 100 percent sure of what you're doing. Type PowerShell in the Windows searchbox—when you see it, right-click and launch it via Run as Administrator. Type in "Get-AppxPackage –AllUsers" without the quotes. A giant list of all the stuff you've got installed that came from Microsoft's Store, plus some other stuff, will appear. It's hard to find those apps in there, but the last one will probably clearly read Microsoft.ZuneMusic—that's actually Grove Music. Copy everything it says on the line next to PackageFullName. You'll then type in a command and paste that line, so it reads something like "remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.ZuneMusic_10.16122.10271.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" (yours will be different after the first underscore character). Execute it with a stroke of the return key, and if you don't get any errors, the Groove Music app should be gone. Be careful using this on other apps—be sure you've picked the right one. 5. Use a Local Account Microsoft really wants you to sign in to Windows 10 with your Microsoft account—the one that is attached to all things Microsoft, be it your Xbox, your Office 365subscription, your OneDrive account, buying apps or music or video in the Windows Store, even talking on Skype, to name just a few. When you set up Windows, Microsoft specifically asks you to sign in using that account. But you don't have to. During setup, just click Skip this step. If you already signed in with the Microsoft account, go to Settings > Accounts > Your email and Accounts. Click Sign in with a local account. Now you can enter a local account name and new password (with a hint for when you forget it). The one downside is that when you end up a service or site that requires Microsoft credentials, you'll have to enter your Microsoft login each time; it won't automatically sign you in as it would if you sign in with a Microsoft account. 6. Use a PIN, Not a Password If you're okay using the Microsoft account, but hate how long it takes to type in your super secure password, you can reset it to a short personal identification number (PIN)—but only on the PC. The PIN, which is only numerals, no mixed case letters or special characters, might not sound very secure. But since it's PC-only, it doesn't compromise the security of your Microsoft account anywhere else. Also, it can be as many digits as you desire. To set it up, click the Start menu, then on your avatar pic, and choose Change account settings. Navigate to Sign-in options, and click the Add button under PIN. Enter the PIN you want and restart to try it. If you've already got a PIN, you get options to change it, remove it, or click I forgot my PIN to recover it. 7. Skip the Password Login Are you the only person who ever—and I mean ever—uses your PC? Then you can probably skip the password login screen that appears after every reboot or sometimes even when you come back from the screensaver. To do that, go to the User Accounts control panel by typing "" in the search bar. Select the account, uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a and password to use this computer. You'll get a confirmation box that asks you to enter that very password—twice. Click okay when done. Reboot the PC and if it works, it should roll smoothly into the desktop without requesting a password. Don't do this if it's shared PC. And you'll still need to know the password if you're logging into the PC remotely. 8. Refresh Instead of Reset Windows 10 has a fantastic feature that lets you essentially reinstall Windows 10 on your computer from the ground up, like new—without deleting any of your data files (though you will have to reinstall software and drivers). When your PC is beyond repair, you access it at Settings > Update & Security > and click Reset this PC, pick settings like "Keep My Files" or "Remove Everything" and let it rip. You don't need any separate media, like a copy of Windows 10 on a disc or USB flash drive., But that can be overkill. Sometimes, Windows just needs a reset that does noteradicate your software and drivers. This is also easy to do, but it does require a copy of Windows 10 on separate media. Don't have the media, since you probably performed the free Windows 10 upgrade during its first year of life? Get it viahere. Run it and install the included ISO file onto a 4GB or larger USB drive you can utilize for the now and in the future. Or you can just mount it as a virtual drive in Windows 10. Double-click the setup on that media/drive's Setup option, ask to download updates and check "Keep personal files and apps" when it appears. After a few more prompts and waiting, your Windows 10 system will have the refresh it needs. 9. Kill Cortana Dead Master Chief would never let this happen. Maybe that's why the most recent build of Windows 10 took out the switch to turn off Cortana, Microsoft's answer to Siri and . Using Cortana makes searching for any term more than just a look on your computer, but also the entire Internet—that's why her search box tells you "Ask me anything." You can still turn her off, however. First, there is the option to hide Cortana: just right-click the Taskbar, select Cortana, then Hidden. The search box disappears, but she's still active and easily accessible: tap the Windows key and just start typing. If you want to really take her out so all searches are local, you need to edit the registry—don't do this if you're not feeling like a Windows expert. You have to open the Registry Editor in Windows from a command line—there is no easy shortcut. In the search box, type Run or CMD to bring up the command line, then type and hit Enter. In Windows 10 Home, navigate to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search. If it's not there, create it. Create a DWORD value and call it AllowCortana. Then set that value to 0 (zero). Once you sign out and come back, the search box will now read "Search Windows." If that's a little too complicated, check out How to Share More (or Less) Personal Data With Cortana. 10. Access Special Symbols Quick Just using 26 letters and 10 numerals and a few pieces of punctuation—that's so old school. We live in the emoji world now—but how do you put those fun little icons into your text when typing in Windows 10? You can't unless you memorize a bunch of ANSI codes... or you could try the pop-up keyboard. It's typically meant for use when Windows is in tablet mode, but it's easy to access even when you're using it with a regular keyboard. Right-click the Taskbar in a blank area, and select the Show touch keyboard button. A new icon will appear next to the clock in the taskbar of a little keyboard. Tap it anytime with the mouse cursor to bring up the on-screen keyboard; use your IRL keyboard to dismiss it from the screen. Click the extra keyboard icon at the lower left of the virtual keyboard, and there is an option to split the keyboard so it appears at the lower left and right of the screen, so it's less likely to obscure your document. You now have access not only to emoji but also special characters like the em dash or degrees symbol (°). If you can't find them, that's because first, you have to hit the &123 key to switch to symbols, then, like on a smartphone, hold down your cursor on the main key to get some special symbols—hold down on the hyphen to get em dash and en dash; hold down on equals (=) to get non-equals (≠), etc. Same goes for the letters to get variations, such as accent symbols over the letters. Voilà! 11. OneDrive Into the Grave Like Cortana, OneDrive—Microsoft's answer to Dropbox or Google Drive—is integrated into Windows 10. Tightly. Too tightly. You can try to ignore it, but it comes up a lot. Again, a registry edit will it completely. In the Registry Editor in Windows 10 Home, go to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive (or create it). This key needs a DWORD value called DisableFileSyncNGSC—set it's value to 1. Then restart. OneDrive is dead, but any files you stored in a local OneDrive folder stay put, as do the files you may have on OneDrive in the cloud. They just won't sync from that PC any longer. 12. No More Notifications You either love notifications or hate the distraction. The noise, the popup, it's too much when your phone is likely displaying most of the same info. Go into Settings > Notifications & Actions. Turn off all the toggle switches. Turn them off for individual apps, especially the ones you find most annoying. Or click on the App name in the list for even more granular control—get notifications from one app on the lock screen, for example, but nowhere else, or turn off sounds for all but one notifier, that kind of thing. Play with the settings to get it just right. This is also where you can personalize the Quick Action buttons that appear at the bottom of the Windows Action Center (the pane where notifications appear on screen)—they give you quick access to settings like Airplane mode, turning off Bluetooth or Wi-Fi or VPN, or creating a note in OneNote. 13. Cool Your Diagnostics Like many other big-name companies, Microsoft likes to get OS feedback about things like crashes. But when you do a setup and Windows 10 asks to "Send full error and diagnostic information to Microsoft," Redmond's getting more than you think. In Settings, go to Feedback & Diagnostics—the "Send your data to Microsoft" option will likely be set to "Enhanced." Set it to Basic to send the least amount of data. 14. Fix Start Menu/Cortana Issues Got and entries that disappear in the Windows 10 Start menu? Does Cortana not pop up when you expect? The Start menu can, it turns out, get pretty gummed up over time. Microsoft has suggestions, but the best is to use the Start Menu Troubleshooter tool. Restart after running it and you're likely to find most of your Start menu problems have gone, at least for now. Or, you can always dump the Windows 10 Start menu and try a third-party option to make the current OS more Windows 7-esque. For more, check out How to Use and Tweak the Start Screen in Windows 10. 15. Get Off the Edge Don't like Microsoft's latest browser? It's safer and faster than using Internet Explorer, but Edge is nothing special compared to our Editors' Choice, Mozilla Firefox. But no matter what browser you choose, you need to make it the default so anytime you open a link, it goes to the browser you want. Go to Settings > System > Default Apps, scroll down to browser and click whichever is listed. A list will pop up of all your installed browsers—pick the one you want permanently. You can always go back to whatever Redmond thinks best later by clicking the "Reset to Microsoft Recommended defaults" button. If you get problems with certain links, you may want to go in and ensure the file type (like .htm versus .html) or even protocols (like :// versus https://) are all set to your browser of choice as well. Links to adjust are on the same screen in Default App settings. Most new browsers you install will try to take back the default position when you start them the first time, so if you speed through a setup, you may need to revisit these settings to go back to your original, preferred Web browser.

    Fix 'Open With' Not Working

    Long story short: if you're one of those people who can't make "Open with" work despite trying all these "fixes" online - I pretty much guarantee my method (Option #2) should work for you if Option #1 does not. Option #1: How to Fix: Open With Not Working (by re-registering the key) As I mentioned above, the "Open with" option appears in a right-click menu because it is part of a very specific Windows Registry entry. Sometimes that Windows Registry entry goes missing or is corrupt, so the best way to fix this is to re-register the Windows Registry key. To do so: Click Start, then type in "Notepad" (no quotes). Wait for notepad to appear in the list, then click it. Use your mouse to highlight the text below: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Open with] @="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}" Right click over top of the highlighted text, then select Copy from the dialogue menu. Go back to the Notepad window, then click Edit -> Paste. The text you copied in Step #2 should now have been pasted inside of Notepad. Inside notepad, click File -> Save As, and name the file "Open with fix 1.reg" and save it to your desktop for easy access. Double click the "Open with fix 1.reg" file to load it into your Windows Registry. Windows will warn you about adding the file into the registry - you can safely ignore the warning and click OK. Go to a video file or text file (not a shortcut of a file), then right click it and you should see the "Open with" dialogue menu. If that still does not work for you, try Option #2 below. Option #2: How to Fix: Open With Not Working (using hack) Sometimes the "Open with" menu option won't work even if the proper "Open with" Windows Registry entry is where it should be. Unfortunately, this happens if your Windows or Windows Registry is corrupt. One way to get around this is to add the "Open with" menu option in a different part of the Windows Registry typically reserved for other Windows Shell commands. To do so: Click Start, then type in "Notepad" (no quotes). Wait for notepad to appear in the list, then click it. Use your mouse to highlight the text below: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with ...\command] @="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}" Right click over top of the highlighted text, then select Copy from the dialogue menu. Go back to the Notepad window, then click Edit -> Paste. The text you copied in Step #2 should now have been pasted inside of Notepad. Inside notepad, click File -> Save As, and name the file "Open with fix 2.reg" and save it to your desktop for easy access. Double click the "Open with fix 2.reg" file to load it into your Windows Registry. Windows will warn you about adding the file into the registry - you can safely ignore the warning and click OK. Go to a video file or text file (not a shortcut of a file), then right click it and you should see the "Open with ..." menu option. Left click it, and Windows should now display a window asking you how you would like to open the file. Please note - Normally, placing your mouse over top of the words "Open with ->" will display a list of options that you can choose from, then you would click whichever program you wanted to open with. In my hack, hovering over top of "Open with ..." does not display a list of options. Instead, you need to click on "Open with ..." and then you will be shown a window which allows you to choose the options. I hope that helps anyone who previously could not get "Open with" to work!

    [Outlook 365/2016] Fixed

    I think I repaired Outlook to work correctly with no crashes. I navigated to here: X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16 X is your location drive, usually C. In search I typed Scanpst.exe and then ran this software. It gave me this: C:\Users\Lee\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\[email protected] [email protected] is an example of an email, not an actual email account. I ran it and it either repaired the email account or told me it did not need a repair. So I did them all and it also pastes a .bak also in case you change your mind or does still cause errors. I got a fault when opening Outlook, said something wrong with an email .ost so I cancelled repairing it again, removed it and then reinstalled the email. I still have around twenty (20) emails to add, soon as I have sorted out that I will also check if they need a repair. So that's what I did to sort out my problems.
  15. If you want to view your emails using an email program - rather than having to login to gmail, hotmail, or yahoo's website, for example - you can use a program like Mozilla Thunderbird. To view emails locally, Thunderbird needs to connect to the remote mail server and retrieve a list of messages. When communicating with the remote server, Thunderbird uses both POP3 and IMAP protocols, though IMAP is used almost exclusively these days. IMAP stands for: Internet Message Access Protocol; it works by storing email messages on the email server, then downloads the list of messages (titles only) to the email client (Thunderbird). When a user selects a message to view, the message and any attachments are downloaded to the local machine. Email Overload: Too Many Messages in the Inbox Most users tend to keep all their messages stored in the email Inbox, without filtering or sorting their emails. If you're using Thunderbird and the IMAP protocol to connect to your favorite email service, this can be a problem. For example, I had a user contact me recently, complaining that his Thunderbird was extremely slow. When I reviewed the problem (by connecting with him via my remote desktop service), I saw that he had about 5 or 6 email accounts and about 10,000 emails stored in his Inbox. Keeping in mind that the email server needs to sync the list of messages Thunderbird, this can take a great deal of time, especially on a slow Internet connection. The best solution here would be to download messages off the email server and onto the local machine, so that there is less to sync. Another solution might be to move messages that are stored in the Inbox to another folder - perhaps an archive folder. That way, the email client won't be syncing messages in the Inbox constantly. Sorting and Storing Messages Locally or by Remote If you want to sort and store messages locally with Thunderbird, the easiest way to do this is to create a Local folder, then select the messages in your Inbox that you want to download to your local machine. To do so: 1.Launch Thunderbird if you have not done so already. 2.Enable the Menu bar if you haven't done so already - the menu bar displays: File, Edit, View, Go, Messages, Events and Tasks, etc from the very top of the Thunderbird window. To do so: click the Menu button near the top right of the Thunderbird window, then click Options, then place a check mark beside "Menu Bar". You should now see the menu bar at the top. 3.Ensure that your Folder View is enabled. The Folder View is displayed on the very left side of Thunderbird and shows all your email folders, such as: Inbox, Sent, Deleted, etc. If it is not enabled, you can enable it by clicking View -> Layout -> Folder Pane. 4.On the Folder View (on the left side of the screen), scroll down to "Local Folders". Left click "Local Folders" to highlight it, then right click over top of the highlighted text and select "New Folder" from the dialogue menu. Name the folder something appropriate for your emails that you want to download to your machine. If you've got too many emails and you want to read them later, then call it "Inbox - to read later". If you've read the majority of emails in your Inbox and you want to simply store them on the machine, then call it "Inbox (Read)", or such. OPTIONAL: if you do not want to store your messages locally but instead want move them out of the Inbox and into another folder on the email server (so that it does not take forever to sync your Inbox), you can simply create a new folder remotely. To do so: left click to highlight your email account name in Thunderbird's Folder View, then right click over top of the highlighted text and select "New Folder". IMPORTANT: if you are viewing emails using a single Inbox (as per my article: How to Fix: Thunderbird: One Inbox, Multiple Accounts), do not create the new folder in your Inbox -> account name. Instead, scroll down the Folder View and you will see a heading with your account name - create the folder there. Name the folder accordingly - such as "Inbox (Read)" or "Inbox - to read later", or such. 5.Now, go back to your email Inbox near the top of the Folder view. If you are viewing all emails as a single Inbox (as per my previous article: How to Fix: Thunderbird: One Inbox, Multiple Accounts), you can segment your Inbox by email provider by clicking on Inbox -> email address name. 6.Your Inbox messages should now be displayed in the middle of the Thunderbird screen, under the headings: Subject, From, Date, etc. Click one of the messages with your mouse, just as if you were reading the email. Once that is done, press CTRL + A on the keyboard to "Select All" messages in your Inbox. 7.All the messages in your Inbox should now be highlighted. Right click over top of any highlighted message, then select Move to -> Local Folders -> Inbox (Read) or whatever you named your folder in Step #4 above. OPTIONAL: if you are moving from the Inbox to a remote folder on the server (instead of downloading your messages locally), then do the following: right click over top of a highlighted message, then select Move to -> Account Name -> The folder you created in Step #4. 8.At this point all your emails in the Inbox should be downloaded onto your machine OR moved to another folder on the remote server. If you need to move messages back to another folder, simply select the message(s), then drag and drop into the appropriate folder. Archiving Messages using the "Archive" Feature At this point I should mention that another great feature Thunderbird has is to archive your messages by year. This is yet another way to sort your emails if you have email overload. Note that archiving emails will only sort emails by year (not by year -> folder name), so if you would prefer to sort your emails differently, then you may not want to use the Archive feature. If you're simply archiving your Inbox and don't care how the emails are sorted (other than by year), then this feature will work great for you. Also note - if you wish to have your emails archived locally (I.E.: downloaded onto your machine by year), you will need to edit your Account Settings in Thunderbird. To do so: click Tools -> Account Settings. The Account Settings window will appear; click your account you wish to edit, then select the "Copies & Folders" sub heading. Under the "Message Archives" heading, select "Local Folders" to store your messages locally when archiving. To archive your messages, do the following: 1.Go to the folder that contains messages you wish to archive. For example: Local Folders -> Inbox (Read). 2.Highlight the messages you want to archive. You can do this a number of ways: (a) you can press CTRL + left click to select multiple messages, or (b) shift + left click over a range of messages, or (c) press CTRL + A to select all messages. If you have a ton of messages, then pressing CTRL + A is probably the best way to go. 3.Right click over top of one of the highlighted messages, then select "Archive". The messages will now be moved to your "Archive" - whether it's stored remotely or locally. Source

  18. [Guide + Tested Fix] Windows Update in Windows 8.1[x86+x64]: Slow/Not Checking for Updates - High CPU/RAM Usage - Internet Usage but no updates detected - Last Update stays Days Ago or Never - No Internet Usage - Slow Installation Issues Many people fed up with Windows Update issues and many sites/forums and even the Microsoft Support requesting for a refresh/reset/reinstall/clean installation of the OS[Windows 8.1]. However, it is unnecessary if you follow the below tested guide. Also, those who have already done refresh/reset/reinstall/clean installation of the OS can make use of the fix in the end of the guide directly to fix Windows Update Issues. Many wonder when they install Windows 8, windows updates work fine but after upgrading to Windows 8.1, the issue starts again. Many of Windows troubleshooting guide including the Microsoft Support guides and everywhere ask users to Enable Automatic Updates and it'll download the necessary updates to fix the issue for recently installed OS devices[clean/fresh install]. However, this isn't working for most people. Also, the settings "Metered Connection", "Automatic Updates linked to Maintenance", Fast Startup and more settings hinder the normal fix on Windows 8/8.1 and later. Microsoft is really making things hard. If you wait for maintenance to fix, it won't. You'll either end up with maintenance completed but issue not fixed or maintenance doesn't run at set time. FYI: In my context, Windows Update corruption is mostly linked with inbuilt background tasks like Maintenance, Automatic Defragmentation and some of our own/scheduled/set time for "Sleep" or "Hibernate" settings/config. Note: Some sites/forums incl. Technet/Microsoft Support may recommend entering Audit Mode/OOBE Mode using Sysprep to check for updates and then boot to normal mode. However, it is currently reported by many that Windows Update doesn't detect any updates in this mode but stuck in checking for updates loop and also your OS may enter into Audit mode loop which mostly the tricks to come out doesn't work at all. It happened to me once. I had to re-install the OS completely again. Hence, please don't ever test it to fix Windows Update issues. FYI: In this guide, I'm not mentioning KB2919355 since the newer windows installation ISO already include this update. If you have a much older ISO, then you should check in "Installed Updates". If not found, download and install this update from here: x86 or x64. Please read install instructions and install the updates in the specified order or you'll land in a new trouble. Read "Steps to Avoid Searching for Updates Issue while using Standalone Installers" in the end of this post for faster installation initiation of standalone installer. Basic Steps: Note: Not applicable to recently installed OS devices[clean/fresh install] or if you recently used refresh/reset. Please skip the basic step and move to the next step. Others, follow the Basic Steps before proceeding to "Windows Update Fix - Tested". In Windows 8.1, if you experience issues with Windows Update, please follow the basic steps one after another. Check Connection Settings: Open "Internet Options" from IE or open Windows Explorer and copy paste "Control Panel\Network and Internet" and press enter. Click on "Connections" tab. Then click on "LAN Settings". Make sure "Automatically detect settings" is Enabled and others incl. Proxy are Unchecked. Now follow the further steps. Check Windows Update is turned on with proper setting and you have a stable internet connection: Note: Make sure that updates are turned on for other Microsoft Products and Services. You can check this here: Open Windows Update, you should see that: You receive updates stating "For Windows and other products from Microsoft Update". If it states, "Windows only", then click on "Change Settings" and check the box under "Microsoft Update". Inbuilt Windows Update Troubleshooter & Standalone Troubleshooter: Open Control Panel, Click "Find and Fix Problems". Alternatively, copy paste "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting" in address bar without quotes in windows explorer. Or Open Action Center and click "Troubleshooting". Under "System and Security", Click "Fix problems with Windows Update". Click on "Advanced" and click "Run as administrator". Now, click Next. Optionally, if you want to know the issues detected before fixing, then uncheck the "Apply repairs automatically" and then click Next. Take note of the detected error codes, issues and the fixes done. It'd be helpful, if you still have trouble after applying all the steps. Now Reboot[make sure the fast startup is disabled] in power options. Power Options-> Choose what the power buttons do -> change settings that are currently unavailable. After reboot, open both the task manager[to check network usage and activity, CPU usage and RAM usage] and Windows Update. Now, click on Check for Updates. Max time to wait on an average internet speed is 1 hour. If it solves the issue, well done. If not, try the same using latest Diagnostic Windows Update Troubleshooter from here. CHKDSK in command prompt: Open elevated command prompt, which means Command Prompt[Run as administrator]. Press "Ctrl + X" and press "Shift + A". Note: If your main partition is not "C:" drive, replace the "C:" with your main partition drive letter in the command "CHKDSK C: /F /R" without quotes and run it. It should ask for reboot(s). It should fix some Windows Update issues. If you still have issue with Windows Update, proceed to next step. Inbuilt DISM Tool: Make sure that you have internet connection turned on. Also, make sure you keep a copy of the log file from "Main partition->Windows->Logs->DISM->dism.log" after running "ScanHealth" or "RestoreHealth" or "Start ComponentCleanup". Open elevated command prompt, which means Command Prompt[Run as administrator]. Press "Ctrl + X" and press "Shift + A". Now, run the command "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth" without quotes. It should show no component corruption found. If it shows corruption found, run the command "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth" to check if the corruption is repairable. If repairable, Run the command "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth". Note: It'll take few mins to hours. It starts doing its work from 20%. However, it stops in 40% too. If it shows corruption fixed, then the DISM part is over and proceed with sfc scan step-7. However, if you get corruption not fixed, then proceed with the sub-steps below. You need a Windows 8.1 OS installation ISO with "install.wim" file located in "sources" folder. If you don't have one, you can get it from Tech Bench download ISO for Windows 8.1. Since the Tech Bench download page is blocked after Windows 10 upgrade offer ended, Please Reply to this thread and I'll provide the unique Microsoft download link in PM. Once you have the ISO, mount the ISO. No need of third party tools. Just right click the ISO and choose "Mount". Now, open elevated command prompt and run the command "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /LimitAccess" Note: Replace "D:" with the exact drive letter of the mounted ISO. It should fix the corruption. If you get error, run the command "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup" and then run the RestoreHealth Command above. If corruption is fixed, then you should run the sfc /scannow. You can view the usage guide here. Make sure you keep a copy of the log file from "Main partition->Windows->Logs->CBS->CBS.log" Now Check for Updates in Windows Update and if still taking hours with no detection or no internet usage with more CPU usage, proceed to next step "Windows Update Fix - Tested". Windows Update Fix - Tested: Note: This fix is also applicable for clean install / refresh / reset / recently installed devices. This fix doesn't have any Windows 10 connection or telemetry which makes it trusted fix from Microsoft. Download using Microsoft Update Catalog: Note: If you use IE with Microsoft Update Catalog with addon, you can continue using IE. Or if you have other browsers, you can use it instantly without any addon installation. Visit this page and click "Download" according to architecture and OS installed. In the pop-up window, click the link to start downloading the .msu file. Download from Download Center: You can visit this KB Details page and locate the downloads according to architecture and OS installed. Steps to Avoid Searching for Updates Issue while using Standalone Installers: Change Windows Update Setting to "Never check for updates" and Disable/Disconnect Internet. Install the update. Note: After installation started, change Windows Update Setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" and enable Internet. Note: If you are already in a search for updates loop in standalone installer, close the window and use end process tree in open task manager -> Details tab -> wusa.exe. Once done, open main partition in Windows explorer and delete the newly created folder named in a type of encrypted code. Then follow the above 2 steps to install again. [Not-Recommended Fix] Alternatively, If you like to fix with Win 10 related update, you can manually install alternate fix KB3112336 or any newer Windows Update Client for Windows 8.1.

  20. You may have noticed that update checks on Windows 7 machines may take a long, long, long time to complete before any updates are displayed for download and installation. Some users have reported that it took them days to get the initial list of updates displayed to them. That's unacceptable on several levels, but more importantly leaves the operating system open to attacks and issues for that period of time. We talked about speeding up the Windows 7 update rollup already. While it may have resolved the issue for some, or at least dropped the time "checking for updates" is displayed to you when you run checks, it did not resolve the issue completely for many users. Fix for slow "checking for updates" on Windows 7 The fix should not take longer than a couple of minutes. It involves downloading and installing an update for Windows 7. Once installed, update checks should not take longer than a couple of minutes tops. I verified this on two PCs running Windows 7 which took ages to check for updates before installing the patch. Here is what you need to do: Download the 32-bit or 64-bit version of KB3172605 to your Windows 7 machine, and install it. If you get a "not applicable to your computer" error, download and install KB3020369 instead: 32-bit version, 64-bit version. Note that you need to download the 32-bit version if you run a 32-bit version of Windows 7, and the 64-bit version of the update if you run Windows 7 64-bit. KB3172605 is the July 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. KB3020369 the April 2015 servicing stack update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. You are asked to restart the PC after installing the patch on the system. Run a check for updates after the PC comes back on. You can do so by tapping on the Windows-key, typing windows update, and hitting enter. You will notice that the check completes in record time on the system. While there is no guarantee that this will remain the case for future update checks, it is refreshing to know that update checks won't take hours or even days to find updates any more on Windows 7 machines. This was discovered by Woody Leonhard. I suggest you check out his website Ask Woody if you have not done so already, as it is a treasure trove for all things Windows. Guide source
  21. Windows Update has never been an ideal solution for maintaining PCs. There are simply too many different hardware and software configurations for it to work perfectly, or be painless. However, Microsoft has made the situation worse. The company is attempting to sweep the complexities under the rug by taking control away from users and pretending it can operate Windows 10 as a service. While that is in line with its corporate objectives, it’s frustrating many of its customers — and costing them countless hours of wasted time. Let’s look at some of the biggest problems with the current Windows Update and a way Microsoft could address each of them. Problem 1: Update makes Windows 10 a Forrest Gump experience It is with a cheery tone that Forrest Gump famously explains that life is like a box of chocolates, because “you never know what you’ll get.” That is not what we want from our computer when we log in. Unfortunately, Microsoft now forces all sorts of updates — usually after a potentially data-losing reboot — on users without their explicit permission. If this was for the sake of security, that’d be one thing. But the updates includes a hodgepodge of patches, bug fixes, new features, and UI changes. Making matters worse, Microsoft has more or less stopped providing usable information about what is in each update. Problem 2: Windows Update can brick a perfectly good computer Even worse than Microsoft deciding when it wants to push new features or UI changes onto your computer is when you wake up to find that a computer that worked perfectly yesterday is now not much more than a paperweight. Sometimes the situation can be fixed by Windows’ own repair utilities, sometimes with a third-party utility (at some additional expense), and sometimes not at all. Among the dozen or so Windows 10 systems I’ve used and maintained, I’ve had all three happen to me. Most recently, one older laptop turned out to have a webcam driver that would not work after a forced update. Completely removing it from the system let it work for about 5 minutes until it re-enabled itself and the system blue-screened. Short of opening up the laptop and cutting the wire to the camera, there wasn’t a good solution. We could have done a fresh install, but of course the forced update would have crashed it again. Updates can also cause more subtle problems, including suddenly inaccessible network storage devices, and even the un-announced removal of third-party software Microsoft deems unfit to continue to exist. Problem 3: You can run, but you can’t hide Unless you are part of an Enterprise, or a user of Windows Pro who knows how to use the Policy Editor, Microsoft does not provide any way to turn off Auto Updates. You can tell them to occur outside “active hours,” but you can only have up to 12 active hours per day (and who is Microsoft to tell me when I want my computer to be usable and not rebooting?). Outside those hours, if you aren’t actively using the system, it will happily kill off your applications, and reboot as many times as it needs to in order to apply updates. That can be mildly frustrating when the updates actually work but, in a version of Groundhog Day, Windows 10 will do this over and over again — every day — if the updates fail to install. My main work machine has gotten stuck in this cycle more than once (until I turned off Auto Update). Each time the Update / Install / Reboot to Complete Install / Failed to Install / Uninstalling / Reboot to complete Uninstall loop kept the machine occupied for about an hour. The error screen to the above right is one I plucked off it just now, while I’m writing this article. I’m lucky enough to have an office full of machines, so I could work on another one. But not everyone has that flexibility. I also found I could download and install the Group Policy editor on Windows 10 Home systems, but some sites warn against that, so do it at your own risk. Three things Microsoft should do to fix Windows Update Unlike attempting to create a revolutionary new mixed-reality computing environment like Microsoft is trying to do with HoloLens, most of what Windows Update needs is simply common sense: Step 1: Provide a simple, user-friendly, way to configure updates Imagine how refreshing it would be to have the initial Windows Update configuration screen look something like this: A user-friendly Windows Update Settings screen Step 2: Document updates It’s embarrassing to even have to ask for this. My colleague Joel Hruska has been sounding the alarm about Microsoft’s push to not bother telling people what is in its updates for a while now. Sometimes Microsoft relents a little, but for the most part, at least for end-users, update descriptions all look pretty much the same, like the one on the right. Clicking on More Info usually doesn’t actually provide any more detail, just some links about what an Update is and why, along with how like spinach, they are good for you. Microsoft used to provide a lot more of this information, so it is definitely capable of it. With a billion users, there should certainly be enough R&D money for this relatively straightforward task. Step 3: Provide real help with error conditions For some reason, Microsoft continues to provide arcane strings of hex digits as its excuse for error messages. In fairness, they alternate with banal test strings like “couldn’t complete the updates.” Users have a choice of doing a deep dive into log files, or Googling the hex error code and wading through incredibly long forum threads full of rants mixed with advice to “try rebooting, uninstalling anti-virus, disabling drivers, and pulling your hair out.” You can find answers that way; I learned I needed to update my encryption package at one point, and the advice to update chipset drivers is always a good reminder. But the experience is awful. Error conditions should be spelled out, and a link provided to Microsoft’s best current assessment of the problem — ideally personalized to the configuration you’re running. Extra credit: Fix the progress bars Sometimes Microsoft provides a percentage complete indicator during updates. But often there is nothing on the screen for minutes — or in rare cases hours — besides a spinning ball and maybe a hopeful text message. Even when a percent complete indicator is shown, it often only relates to the specific phase of the update being run, and not to the entire process. Honest status indicators that tell you when an operation is still running or is hopelessly stuck would save users quite a bit of time and frustration. To put this in perspective, I’m a big fan of Windows 10, and consider it a huge step forward from Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 (although many Windows 7 loyalists are not so sure). But it is not only not perfect, but in some ways, including respecting user privacy, and forced updates, it has taken steps backwards. Hopefully Microsoft will pay as much attention to these not-very-catchy fundamental issues as it is to the eye-candy it has planned for next year’s “Creators’ Update.” Article source
  22. Fix Thunderbird Won’t Let You Sign In To Gmail Find out what you can do if Thunderbird displays a Google sign in popup but won't sign you in to the account because of blocked cookies. As you may know, I use Thunderbid as may main desktop email program. I use it with various email providers, including Gmail. Everything worked fine up until this morning. I received mails to the Gmail account and was able to browse mails and compose them as well. About an hour ago I started to get a popup informing me that I had to sign in to the Google account again. The dialog did display the URL the request came from, it was a Google URL, so I knew it was legitimate. Also, checking to see if I could still access Gmail content in Thunderbird, I noticed that I could not. I entered the Gmail email address and password, and was redirected to a "cookies disabled" page instead of the second verification step of two-factor authentication. I tried again and same result. That was quite puzzling as I did not make any changes to Thunderbird. When I checked the cookies setting in the email client, I noticed that cookies were disabled. That was the reason for me not being able to sign in and authorize the Gmail account for use in Thunderbird. Note: While I experienced this with Gmail, you may experience it with other email services that rely on cookies for authentication. Here is how I fixed the issue: Open the Thunderbird email client. Select Tools > Options > Privacy. Check whether "Accept cookies from sites" is enabled, or if the mail server is listed as an exception. The accept cookies from sites preference was disabled in Thunderbird. I did not do it, and I'm not sure how it reset itself on its own. Anyway, I enabled the option again, and made sure that third-party cookies are not allowed. I entered the Google account information again and it worked this time. Got the second authorization step and regained full access to the Gmail account in Thunderbird. The same method works for any other email account, and also for calendar syncing. If you have added Google Calendar to Thunderbird for instance, you may run into the same issue. You may also use the same fix to correct the issue. Source

  24. Some Windows 10 users have reported a strange bug. It seems that the “Open With” option on the right-click context menu is missing. If you’re experiencing this bug, we have a solution using the registry, and some other options in case that doesn’t work for you. Standard warning: Registry Editor is a powerful tool and misusing it can render your system unstable or even inoperable. This is a pretty simple hack and as long as you stick to the instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems. That said, if you’ve never worked with it before, consider reading about how to use the Registry Editor before you get started. And definitely back up the Registry (and your computer!) before making changes. NOTE: Before performing the steps in this article, check if you are trying to select “Open with” for one file or more than one file. The “Open with” option is only available when you select ONE file. If you have TWO OR MORE files selected, the “Open with” option is not available. Open the Registry Editor by clicking on Start and typing regedit . Press Enter to open Registry Editor, or click on regedit under Best match. Give regedit permission to make changes to your PC. NOTE: You may not see this dialog box, depending on your User Account Control settings. In the tree structure on the left, navigate to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers NOTE: The asterisk is an actual registry key under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, as shown on the image below. If you do not see a key called “Open With” under the ContextMenuHandlers key, right-click on the ContextMenuHandlers key and select “New” > “Key” from the popup menu. Type Open With as the name for the new key. There should be a Default value in the right pane. Double-click on “Default” to edit the value. Enter the following in the “Value data” edit box on the Edit String dialog box. We recommend you copy the following text and paste it into the box. {09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936} Then, click “OK”. Close the Registry Editor either by selecting “Exit” from the “File” menu or by clicking the “X” button in the upper-right corner of the window. The “Open with” option on the context menu should be available right away. If not, try restarting explorer.exe or logging out and logging back in. If you don’t feel like diving into the Registry yourself, we’ve created some downloadable registry hacks you can use. There is one hack to add the Open with option to the context menu and one hack to remove it, in case you decide you don’t want it after all. Both hacks are included in the following ZIP file. Double-click the one you want to use and click through the prompts. Remember, once you’ve applied the hacks you want, you may have to log out of your account and log back in or exit and then restart explorer.exe for the change take effect. Open with Context Menu Option Registry Hack The hack to add the Open with option to the context menu is really just the applicable key, stripped down to the value we talked about in this article and then exported to a .REG file. It adds the “Open With” key and sets the value we talked about as the value for the key. The hack to remove the option deletes the “Open With” registry key. And if you enjoy fiddling with the Registry, it’s worth taking the time to learn how to make your own Registry hacks. Credit to
