  • Buggy KB 4039884 Win7 patch of a patch returns with no explanation

    Posted on August 30th, 2017 at 14:20 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    It’s baaaaack.

    The buggy patch of a buggy patch, KB 4039884, which was pulled yesterday, suddenly re-appeared today, with a different date and a new title… and absolutely no explanation for the shennanigans.

    In theory, KB 4039884, now titled “August 30, 2017—KB4039884” fixes the multi-monitor bug introduced in this month’s Win7 security patches, KB 4034664, KB 4034679, and KB 4034670.

    Personally, I wouldn’t touch it until we hear back from the unpaid beta testers.

    Note:

    Before you install this update, you must uninstall any previous version of KB4039884. Then install KB4034664 or KB4034679 before installing this current update of KB4039884.

    Now that’s customer-friendly.
