          The number of patches required to keep a 10-year-old OS long out of development/support struggling along has zero relevance to its security today compared with modern systems.

            I can’t speak to that, as I don’t use deferrals or pause.  The only constraint I put on Windows Update is driver updates, via Group Policy.

            “Suggest ways I can finish setting up my device to get the most out of Windows” had a check in the box. I un-checked that many updates ago, but I just un-checked it again.

            I wouldn’t classify that as an issue, however.

          I also got the privacy screen and some sort of OLE prompt (should’ve read the latter more carefully). Pretty bizarre, not sure if it was meant for after this cumulative update or if there was some issue preventing it from running after the feature update.

          I guess someone would have to clean install 2004 and then install KB4557957 to find out.

          My NAS got the same two updates, only pushed.  No hiccups.  Active hours for my NAS are 6:30AM to 3:00PM.  Both sides of my laptop are updated as well, no hiccups there, either.

          All that’s left is the B side of my desktop, which I’m gonna do shortly.

          >>>edit – Side B updated, all is well with five various installations.  I saw the blue Privacy selections screen from “Suggest ways I can finish setting up my device to get the most out of Windows” getting checked during the update on the B side of my laptop and both sides of my desktop.  It didn’t happen on my NAS, even though that one was pushed and I didn’t watch it.  When I RDP’d into it to check, it signed in straight to the desktop with nothing in between, not even the “Hi”.  /edit<<<

          So far, all I have is observation on working 2004 systems.

          We won’t really know what’s going on until somebody has a chance to test the Registry settings against the real-world releases – and that’s going to take some time.

              Microsoft announced that three years ago:

              We will phase out Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, culminating in the removal of Flash from Windows entirely by the end of 2020.

              By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash.

              This timeline is consistent across browsers, including Google, Mozilla, and Apple.

              And clarified their plan (regarding Chromium) last year:

              We still plan to fully remove Flash from these browsers by December 2020, as originally communicated.

        Microsoft fixes the Windows 10 May 2020 Update for Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3

        “The fix rolled out as part of today’s round of Patch Tuesday updates, so if you’re on build 19041.329, you’ve got the fix. Of course, if your machine was susceptible to the issue, you were likely never offered the update in the first place, since there was a compatibility hold.

        Unfortunately, that hold still isn’t being lifted, so if you’re on Windows 10 version 1909, you still won’t see version 2004 in Windows Update. …”

          Ironic that KB4562253 showed no errors in event viewer… because on the Server 2012 R2 standard servers that inadvertently got this update, any MMC that wants to launch a particular type of view will want to open the view in an external program.

          It first manifested for me with Event Viewer using the Details tab.  I’ll bet you didn’t have to open a details tab.

          The problem also manifests with the Services MMC.

          It happens on all servers with that update, and does not happen on any without that update.

          I would put a big-**** “DEFER” with exclamation points on that servicing stack update.

            Update – It looks on Server 2012 R2, KB4562253 hosed Internet Explorer 11 settings to an extreme degree.  Can’t open inetcpl.cpl.  Can’t open a web page – it wants the page downloaded.

              Followup:

              It appears that although there was no approval for the servicing stack update, it installed itself outside of our patch management system.   Because of that, co-dependent updates did not also install.

              Because there appears to be a link between the servicing stack update, the security only/quality updates (whichever one you choose) and the Internet Explorer 11 cumulative security update – and there’s a disclaimer in the security only/quality update KB article saying to make sure to install the latest IE 11 update – I’m guessing that whatever the servicing stack changed that borked IE11 has a corresponding fix in the IE11 cumulative update.  At least I hope that’s the case.

              The kicker: Windows Update scan did not detect that the IE11 cumulative update for June was a needed update!  Is this another one that is only showing up in the Windows Update Catalog?   So much for automating patch updates…

              I will post back with a status on the borked IE condition.

              Regardless, I’m a tad concerned that Microsoft changed things for Server 2012 R2 to make it more like Win10, where Microsoft decides when to apply updates for you.  Has anyone else had an issue with Servicing Stack updates installing themselves, even though the status for that patch has not been set to “approved for install?”

                Update:

                Applying the June IE Security Cumulative Update fixed the IE borkage wrought by the self-applied and unrequested/not-approved June servicing stack update.

                If someone’s got the same thing – IE fails to load into embedded forms in MMC, won’t launch a web page and won’t let you into the internet control panel, check to see if the servicing stack update ran without permission or notice.  If so, go to the windows update catalog server and locate the latest IE security cumulative update, and install it.

          Be sure you have the May Servicing Stack installed (linked in #2270882 ). It is a prerequisite for the the June patches.

        I accepted and installed the KB4560960 cumulative update last night, along with the Adobe Flash Player update and the virus definitions update, on an HP Omen Intel core i7 7700 laptop with 8 GB ram running version 1909, bringing the build number up to 900. So far, the only problem I’ve seen is with Edge, which I occasionally play with for amusement. Most of the websites load as normal from my bookmarked favorites list; but a few would no longer load. The weather channel’s website (weather.com) struggles to load and then gives up, leaving the viewed page from the most recently loaded webpage on the screen but the weather channel’s url in the address bar ( https://weather.com/weather/today/l/283ac7f0a0440adf364edbf20a00ece98d69edaf69c245489c5fb85e06af8cc1 ). Another webpage for current covid-19 infection data for my county utterly fails to load, instead producing an error message I’ve never seen before and didn’t capture or preserve. Other webpages also simply failed to load and left the last viewed page on the screen with no comment or error message. All of these webpages loaded quickly and normally in the chrome browser on the same laptop (the browser I normally use).

          Hi I had a similar experience, yesterday, when I installed the patch, and the system went to restart, it never got past the splash screen of the BIOS. I tried to uninstall, no luck, I tried rolling back, no luck, finally, I went to a system image I made last week and that worked. Then when I got back into the system, the patch was still there waiting for me. With trepidation, I let Windows do it’s thing, and the patch installed properly.

          Regards

          A little detail… the installer creates a temporary user profile. Normally when the system reboots, it cleans up the temporary profile and brings back your old one. In some cases – I still don’t know when or why or how – the installer slips up (likely a race condition) and plops you into the temporary profile.

          Tenforums has a thorough discussion of the problem and multiple solutions. Best advice is to re-boot six or eight times, and your old profile will probably come back. If you follow my instructions for installing updates, on Computerworld, there are details.

          MS hasn’t acknowledged the bug, although I (and many others) have been kvetching about it for months.

            I had that happen on a couple pc’s back in February or March but haven’t come across it since.

            As far as the “you have been logged in with a temporary profile” we’ve had that occasionally with random users for years. A very simple fix that worked every time in that case was I told the user to log off (not reboot) and then log back on and their profile loaded normally every time. A reboot would result in the same problem with no solution. Log off, not reboot. In that case I always thought it was network related.

            It’s really important for everyone to know that if your normal profile does not load, do not panic. All your stuff is still on the pc and intact. It will be stored in one of two places. The Users folder with your usual login name or if a Windows version update was involved it could also possibly be in the Windows Old folder.

            I’ve never seen data loss occur from a lost profile. It’s there somewhere.

              BTW – If you’re a home user wondering where is my option to log off? Try right clicking your start button (or whatever they call it now) and you should see additional shutdown options including “log off” or “sign out” .

              In other articles I’ve read, a simple reboot(s) may not solve the problem.  In some cases this complex procedure was necessary- a bit too much for my skills- so I hide the update and take my chances mot having it.

        Regardless of the what, should it (WU of 1909) not have prompted?

        What deferral settings

        The only available download /installation deferral of which I have any knowledge is to Pause;  and we have to Resume (remove the pause) in order to Check.

          Windows updates do not prompt and as you clicked Check for updates that is what I would expect to happen.

          What we don’t expect is the 2004 update to install without prompting.

              That applies to feature updates (1909 to 2004 etc) not to security updates. They are “required to keep Windows running smoothly”.

          @abbodi86 Thank you for your post. It helped me solve an odd problem with my Win 7 wired network icon showing no internet connectivity (yellow !) even though it actually had internet access. Turned out that SpybotAntibeacon with optional extensive telemetry hosts enabled, blocked msftncsi.com. There was also an warning in my event log of not being able to reach dns.msftncsi.com. Once msftncsi.com and http://www.msftncsi.com were remmed out in the host file, all went back to normal. Credit to the website for identifying msftncsi.com

          Probably five years or so, but there was no risk. The worst that could have happened was, if an administrator set diagnostic data (telemetry) to full then a standard user could change it to basic; and Microsoft told the discovering researcher that was by design, so it’s not changed by this week’s security patches.

          The only thing Microsoft fixed was to prevent a standard user from switching to full diagnostics data after an administrator has set it to basic, which Microsoft classified as an “Information Disclosure” and NOT a privilege escalation (and that required both an administrator and standard user to be signed in at the same time).

          It’s much ado about nothing:

          An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could cause additional diagnostic data from the affected device to be sent to Microsoft.

          To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would have to log on to an affected system and interact with the Windows Diagnostics & feedback Settings app.
