  • December 2019 Patch Tuesday foibles and quibbles

    Posted on December 11th, 2019 at 07:45 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft has officially yanked the bogus Autopilot patch, KB 4532441, that some of you saw yesterday. Reminds me a lot of the same stupid thing in October.

    The new MSRT appeared several hours after the rest of this month’s patches.

    And that new end-of-life nag for Win7 has a bypass – if you’d rather change a registry key, instead of clicking to dismiss it permanently. (Or if you don’t trust Microsoft to do what they say.)

    Screenshot of the nag, thx @Microfix
