        Go away kid, ya bother me… We don’t have official acknowledgment of the widespread “missing profile” bug in this month’s Win10 version 1903 and 1909

        It’s noon here and nothing has shown in the update queue yet. I’m debating whether or not to guinea pig this patch or patches.

        well woody only “C” patches have started to show up in the Catalog but only for the 1809 release & older today Tuesday Feb. 25 after 10am local time (aka. KB4537818 for v1809, KB4537795 for v1803, etc.)
        also new preview rollup for Win8.1 available – KB4537819

        1903 & 1909 users will have to wait longer – maybe until either Ash Wednesday Feb. 26 or Thursday Feb. 27; no new updates for them…yet

        KB4497165
        https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4497165/kb4497165-intel-microcode-updates

        The Microsoft Update Catalog shows this information:
        https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=4497165

        I am using WUMgr to check for updates these days.
        WUMgr shows KB4497165 installed 2/25/2020.
        However, Windows Installed Updates shows KB4497165 installed 1/30/2020.

        I don’t know when or how KB4497165 was installed today. WUMgr doesn’t show the update as installed through WUMgr. I don’t know why today’s date isn’t reflected in Windows Installed Updates.

          That’s an Intel Microcode patch. Maybe they do not change the KB number.
          Have you rebooted the PC since?

            I haven’t yet rebooted. but I also wasn’t aware I had received a patch. I will reboot and see what is reflected where. This patch seems to be stealth.

              See if the install date changes when you reboot.

                Rebooted.

                WUMgr shows KB4497165 installed 2/25/2020.
                Windows Installed Updates shows KB4497165 installed 1/30/2020.

                When I installed this update January 2020, I downloaded it from the Microsoft Update Catalog based on information about this patch provided at AskWoody. This time, this update was installed without my knowledge and without prompting.

                Addendum:

                • No changes made to KB4497165 cat and mum files in C:\Windowsservicing\Packages. All dates reflect January 30, 2020 when this software was initially installed.
                • Downloaded KB4497165 v4 from Microsoft Update Catalog a few minutes past. Signature shows:
                  cert
                • This patch dated February 25, 2020 in the catalog appears to be the same patch available on January 30, 2020.
                • Checked Event Viewer for WindowsUpdateClient for this package; nothing was present.
                • Therefore, unlikely any update for KB4497165 was made on February 25, 2020 to my system as this package was present.

        I have a Window 10/Pro device. My processor is i7-6500U (Skylake U). I was on 1903 on Jan Patch Tuesday (Jan 14) and after the 3 patches in the queue on that date were downloaded and installed, I decided it was time to set deferrals (Feature Update deferred 365 days and Quality Updates deferred 21 days).

        Then on January 24, I fiddled around some more by setting the PAUSE to 7 days, which was due to expire Jan 31. Not understanding PAUSE thoroughly, I clicked on the “Resume” button that was offered and so I was down the chute for 1909 then on January 24.

        Apparently, KB4497165 was not in the queue on January 30, when it was released, nor was it ever downloaded or installed then. {I do not see it in Update History nor in Installed Updates}.

        On February 7, 2020, I decided to stop trying to understand PAUSE and keeping Feature Updates set at 365, I changed Quality Updates to 0, and set the Group Policy Editor > Automatic Window Updates to #2-Notify download/install. {There is no PAUSE set at all.}

        I checked wushowhide today (Feb 25 – Week C), and I saw that KB4497165 was waiting in the Windows Update queue. So, I hid it.

        Now, I want to know if it is safe to unhide this update so that I will get a “download” button for it. It seems not to be an optional, non-security update, but the MS catalog does not indicate that it is a security update either.

        So, what kind of update is KB4497165? Does it update the BIOS? If it is a BIOS update, isn’t it better to get the update from the manufacturer of my device (DELL)? I get update notices from DELL specifically for my device, but I have only received one notice to update the Wi-Fi adapter, which I have done.

        Is it safe/advisable to install KB4497165 now? Or should I keep it hidden until MS-Defcon is 3+?

        Or should I wait until DELL provides the update? {I know this involves INTEL processors, but presumably INTEL communicates with DELL and presumably DELL then prepares the updates for its own machines}

          I used wushowhide to unhide KB4497165 on February 27, 2020 early in the day. It’s now Feb 28, 2020, 8:30pm(EST) and it’s not appearing in the Windows Update queue on the Windows Update screen. More than 36 hours have passed.

          I’m Win10/Pro, version 1909 Feature Update Deferral=365, Quality Updates Deferrral=0, and Group Policy Editor=#2-Notify download/install. I’ve received notifications for other updates in the queue, all of them Windows Defender Antivirus updates, one a platform update and two definition updates, but no notification to download KB4497165.

          It’s unhidden, for sure. See the wushowhide screen below.
          Unhidden-KB4497165

          Why isn’t it appearing in the queue to download and install?? I don’t think it’s a matter of waiting — since the update scheduler has already kicked in to send notifications about the Defender updates. (I’ve even clicked on “Check Updates,” but no success in getting KB4497165 to appear.) Something seems to be stopping it from appearing on the WU screen with a download button.

        looks like KB4535996 will be the next CU for v1903 & v1909 as I recently read about it in this Ten forums topic

        might be coming either Thursday Feb. 27 or Friday Feb. 28

        It seems like Microsoft is pushing ChrEdge with this CU

        “downloaded on 4 computers. On two, also got updated EDGE —- which I don’t want. Can I get rid of it?”
