      So, I’m guessing that means don’t worry about any .NET updates until you post one that says INSTALL and is for a new security update?

      Please let me know where you saw an install recommendation for microcode (assume you are referring to 4589212). I don’t see any reference to it on the latest Master Patch List dated 3/26/21.

       

      Thanks!

      OK. I guess I misinterpreted Susan’s post. She said the optional update, which I assumed was 5001649, would not show up in wushowhide and that she’d withhold advice until the April update is proven. I failed to understand that she was agreeing to your recommendation about downloading and installing 5001649, since she called it optional. I will now do that by accessing the Catalog. I usually just send these manual updates to my Downloads folder instead of the desktop as you recommended. Is that OK?

      So, it appears that I should: (1) never install 5000802 if received via wushowhide; (2) take no action to manually obtain 5001649 and; (3) await another update for March (which has yet to be issued or approved) or the April C.U. once issued and approved. I assume one or the other or both of these should arrive via wushowhide. If 5001649 should show up before number three, should I install it?

      Thanks,

      Your advice about the setting being in the printer defaults seemed good. However, it doesn’t seem to work. After a long search in HP Smart app settings, I was finally able to find the one for duplex, which was OFF. I changed it to ON and made the Bind = Long Edge. Went back to a multi-page Word document and tried to print it. The  print dialog showed as Print One Sided. Changed to Two-Sided, Long Edge and saved the document. Closed Word. Re-started Word and accessed the document print dialog, which had reverted to One Sided. Am I missing something?

      I have another one! Several times a day I get the access denied warning for RuntimeBroker.exe. What is this and is it safe? If safe, there doesn’t seem to be any way to allow access. The usual button to allow is not displayed on the details page.

      What to do?

      I found it listed in the Uninstall list as you mentioned. I’ve made note in my updating procedure to this effect for future use.

       

      Thanks so much for clarifying this.

      Despite all the conflicting and confusing advice found at various places on the ‘Net, I somehow apparently blundered into a solution. Belarc is no longer reporting the two security issues for Flash. Thanks for the responses here.

      No. Duh… I assumed that the list was in numerical order and once I got below 1903 I quit looking. I found it on the second page and ran it, apparently successfully.

      Now on to the matter of Chrome and Firefox. I went to Adobe.com and found instructions for uninstalling Flash from Windows. I followed the instructions up to the point of deleting all files in the C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash folder. Found the folder ok, but when I selected the four files found there and tried to delete them, I got an error message “You require permission from TrustedInstaller to make changes to this file.” No idea what that is, where to find it or how to use it. Is all this grief really necessary?

      PK,

      I cannot find a version of KB4577586 in the Catalog that applies to Win 10 Version 1909 (X64).  Does that mean that Flash has already been removed from IE and Edge by some previous update?

      Yesterday, I ran Belarc and received what are probably the same two Adobe Flash update required warnings. I thought Flash was removed from Windows 10. I can’t find any reference to it in Control Panel. Can anyone advise what’s going on and if any action is required on my part to fix this?

      PK,

      How to “clear the queue?” All items are still there after hiding the two.

      PK,

      Went back to wushowhide and hid the two updates that I want to defer. I don’t know how to “clear the queue.” Can you advise me on that? I have the “2” setting in G.P.

      Since I get a Defender update daily, and prefer to install it the same day, it might be appropriate to leave the two January updates hidden until Susan gives the OK to install. What’s your opinion?

      Thanks for the suggestion. I looked at what I think are all the applicable settings and believe them to be correct. Just to verify, here they are:

      1. gpedit, under Windows Update for Business, I have Target Feature Update enabled and set to 1909.
      2. gpedit, under Windows Updates, I have Configure Automatic Updates enabled and set to “2” (notify for download and auto install).
      3. GUI (Updates>Advanced), I have Featured set to 365 and Quality set to 0.
      4. Metered Connection is OFF.

      Please let me know if these are ALL the applicable settings and if they are set correctly.

      Thanks,

      D. Eager

      Found it in Control Panel>Programs by the KB# and uninstalled it. Back to normal. The actual name was “Windows Setup Remediations.” Who would have thought?

      Thanks again so much!
