  • Patch Lady – after .NET I get this?

    Posted on March 15th, 2020 at 15:37 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So on both a Surface Go and a Lenovo laptop after the install of optional, not security .NET KB4537572  on Windows 10 1909 I got a “pop” of the screen that normally you get when setting up a new computer or after a feature update.

    All I had to do was to click on skip for now, but the first time I thought it was a fluke, the second time I went… hang on… this happened just a few days ago and I think on the same update.

    In case you see it too… just hit skip.

    Note I don’t think this happens if you just let updates occur, in this case I scanned for and “sucked down” updates because I was in one case seeing what updates would be offered up, and in the second case it was a Surface that had been offline for a bit.

    Borncity reports seeing it as well and points to a registry key to block it.
