• Heads up! Many “optional non-security” updates are on the way

    These aren’t the wimpy download-only IE patches from yesterday. They’re the whole nine yards.

    Here’s what I see:

    Win10 version 1809 and Server 2019 – KB 4516077 – big bunch of fixes, apparently including yesterday’s IE patch (because they’re both cumulative)

    Win10 version 1803KB 4516045 – another big bunch.

    Win10 1709, 1703, 1607/Server 2016 patches also released.

    Win7KB 4516048 – Monthly Rollup Preview. Not much:

    Addresses an issue that may cause an error when opening or using the Toshiba Qosmio AV Center. You may also receive an error in the Event Log related to cryptnet.dll.

    Win8.1KB 4516041 – Monthly Rollup Preview. Fixes the bug that prevented IE 11 from running on RT devices.

    “Group B” patchers note that the IE zero-day fix only appears in the separate IE cumulative update, KB 4522007. You’ll need to hop over to “Group A” to get the IE fix.
