      Installed, no problems with searching for updates after this (I have a Skylake processor). Interestingly, under knows issues there’s:

      “If the PC uses an AMD Carrizo DDR4 processor, installing this update will block downloading and installing future Windows updates.”

      Seems the same info is stated under “Security-only”, so there will be no way to avoid CPU block, even when installing security-only updates…

        https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4015546

        it also quotes

        Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

        So what should be their official position on this one? They say they won’t support it anymore, they claim it will not work, after all in the end it ends up working but they say they will fix it…

        Is this some quantum computing under psychedelic drugs? Gosh, what Microsoft has turned itself into…

      One thing I’ve concluded after reading the ghacks link: The younger and more modern a Windows system is, the more vulnerabilities it has.

      So much for that Microsoft propaganda about newer operating systems being more secure.

      Too bad Windows XP updates’ info is not public anymore, I’m dead curious to know how well should it’s security been ironed out for those top notch platinum premium users. Anyone out there spending those gazillions per machine with information to leak out about this? 😉

        I would argue that it doesn’t matter if Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 have more vulnerabilities as long as they still get updates. If they weren’t supported anymore then yes it would be a problem. But they’re still getting updated and these vulnerabilities are getting fixed. Also keep in mind that Windows 7 has been around longer so it’s had more time for vulnerabilities to be discovered.

          I’m not sure I understand this argument at all.

          “it doesn’t matter if Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 have more vulnerabilities as long as they still get updates.”

          So if Windows 10 has 5 critical vulnerabilities and W7 has only 1 and that’s OK because eventually those 5 will get patched? I think I prefer my 1 vulnerability, thanks.

          Like I said. Windows 7 is older, so more vulnerabilities have had the opportunity to be patched, I don’t think that makes newer versions of Windows bad.

      What a b***** mess the “Security Updates Guide” is!  Now that Microsoft has decided, in their infinite wisdom, to get rid of MSSB numbers, it has become even more confusing to search for any/all applicable updates for a given operating system or other software product, much less multiples if you are a Systems Administrator type, like me.

      Good thing others are taking more time than I have available to flesh these out.  It was bad enough when Microsoft started rolling multiple updates up into one set six months ago, but this is far, far worse, IMHO.

        I entirely agree, it’s an absolute headache to navigate now. How can this possibly be better? I couldn’t find the page for the security only .net framework update, surely it should be linked to on the security and quality rollup page? But no, that would be too easy so i found it on that ghacks page.  The update pages are now also awful, with no links to the individual KB articles, just everything crammed into the opening paragraph. Oh and why do the security only pages list internet explorer yet you have to install the cumulative update anyway?

      It is fixed by switching off machine manually and restarting. Not very useful for remote action

      Hm…

      From this page we see that there is a Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (KB4014661).

      Reading carefully, I found that the description of KB4014661 on this page states (once the “Nonsecurity-related fixes…” section is expanded):

      Note You must install this Security Update for Internet Explorer 4014661 to have the option to disable VBScript as document in 4012494 on a computer that does not have Windows 10 Creators Update installed.

      I just went through the settings and didn’t find a VBScript as document option in the GUI that I could change. That option sounds like it might be a response to that zero day Office glitch uncovered a few days ago, and the text implies KB4012494 is contained as part of this update, yet there is no visible option.

      I followed the instructions in KB4012494 and made the registry change, but I expected to find a GUI option. Am I misinterpreting what it says?

      Anyone know more?

      -Noel

      • #107617 Reply

        I interpret it that VBScript can be disabled but it has to be the more difficult way via registry for home users or easy with a “fix it” pack, as we don’t have a Group Policy Editor.

    • #107609 Reply

      anonymous

      @Noel:  I think the word “document” should probably be “documented” which would change the context of the whole statement to make a lot more sense.  “You must install this update (4014661) to be able to make the ‘disable VBSript process’ (adding the new URL action into the registry) take full effect.”

       

      Leave it to Microsoft to confuse us all further.

      Yes, Security Only updates for Win 7 / 8.1 contain the CPU generation detection = WU block for new processors

      Yes the Windows 7 & 8.1 Rollups and Security Only Updates now include processor detection to prevent updates for machines running Gen 7 processors but the block only applies to using Windows/Microsoft Update to search for and install as follows:

      (Enabled detection of processor generation and hardware support when PC tries to scan or download updates THROUGH WINDOWS UPDATE)

      In the past it had been asked if the code in a given month’s preview monthly rollup could be changed in the next month’s monthly rollup, if there wasn’t a security-related change involved in the given code. We have a possible example that the answer could be “yes”: file wuaueng.dll (associated with the Windows Update client) in the Windows 7 March 2017 preview monthly rollup has version 7.6.7601.23714, while file wuaueng.dll in the Windows 7 April 2017 monthly rollup has version 7.6.7601.23735.

      What about those who do not have IE11 installed?

      I want nothing to do with IE. In fact, I’ve searched everything I could related to it, including in the WindowsSxS folder, selected them all and pressed shift + nom nom nom. There!

      Question is: even without having IE11 not installed (on Windows 7 it should default back to IE8) and even with (some?) of the left-overs deleted, since IE is so cancered down into the OS, shouldn’t there be some indirect vectors for attack?

      I haven’t seen any security updates for IE8, lately. Are there some around I might have missed / hidden by mistake?

      Any recommendations for keeping this kind of Windows 7 installations secure? Should I install IE11 and keep it updated or instead try to eradicate every sign of it? Thanks.

        I agree with MrBrian.

        IE has a bad reputation but it has a pretty good security model, actually. The rep is because it’s just not configured to be very secure out of the box for some reason.

      This update was slipping under Windows Update’s radar, it was never presented to me, but installed when manually downloaded:

      Security Update for Windows (KB4014573)
      Security update for the .NET Framework 3.5.1 for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1: April 11, 2017

      Update type: Important
      Fix for KB4014573
      More information: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=4014573

      BTW, under April, 2017 Security Only Update for .NET Framework 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB4014985), there were also these updates:

      ndp45-kb4014566-x64_95b57712424a36cac3fc2f27fcc12e4555a80afd.exe

      ndp46-kb4014552-x64_32e1c3af9a27962c93682fc66584803baa729782.exe

      ndp46-kb4014558-x64_900b63e9c928af1224ba91e4a0d0a14cceee92f6.exe

      that refused to install – non applicable or locked (two different separate things that can lead you to confusion, as you might dump an important applicable update that refused to install because it might be permanently locked)

      .NET: another thing cancered down into Windows.

        I’m looking for confirmation on that right now. Thanks for the heads-up!

        OK. I see the Intel Celeron 3965U listed as a 7th generation chip. That means you’ll only be protected from the update block if you have a machine that’s been explicitly whitelisted by the manufacturer. What machine are you using?

          I’m confused. Where is the Celeron 3965U mentioned?

          Original poster mentioned issues with a Celeron T3000 (screenshot confirms it), which is a Penryn chip released Q2 2009. Intel ARK page: http://ark.intel.com/products/40738/Intel-Celeron-Processor-T3000-1M-Cache-1_80-GHz-800-MHz-FSB

          The false positives from this new processor detection code are mounting. How many average Joes will be screwed from an incorrectly detected processor and be unable to get updates on a previously-working install of Win 7/8.1?

          Oh wait, let me guess–the solution to fix the issue will be a free upgrade to Windows 10! /cynical

          I’m not touching April’s updates with a 10-foot pole until these issues get fixed.

      I am one of those kludges that bough a windows phone about 2 years ago. It ran Win 8.1.

      This week I noticed I could not access my gmail as I was being  looped into entering my Google PW, then an MS PW, with MS requiring blanket authority to access my gmail.

      From the blogs it seems the only solution was a full reset, which I did. Doesn’t MS specify that a reset will restore your phone/system OS back to the time of the original purchase?

      Now, however, rather than re-installing the original Win 8.1 Mobile [where I had benn able to install Opera & Firefox and other things], the reset has produced Windows 8.1 Update 2.

      One is now obliged to use IE, cannot install any other browser, and have Cortana.

      There are a bunch of other changes limiting options. The phone now stinks more that it ever did, and I am having a heck of a time trying to get gmail re-installed.

      Is this what MS is planning for upcoming  Windows 7 & 8.1 updates….Frankensteinisation?

      No more MS and Windows for this just retired victim. Chrome/Android will replace  everything, if, I can get still get some unwitting  MS fan to buy my work systems.

      Will be dropping out Woody! Thank much for all your help over the years.

      Woody and fans – Sorry, but I’m confused now.

      The first two weeks after Patch Tuesday, I like to install the Security Only updates to my Win 76 Pro 64-bit machines, all of which have IE and some of which have Office.  Then, two weeks later, come back here and see if it’s safe to go back and install all the patches.

      This is the place to come for info, but it’s not clear to a non-tech such as myself.

      Today, April 12, what exactly ARE the security-only patches for my Win 76 Pro 64-bit machines, IE and Office?  (with links, if possible).

      Many thanks!
