    • in reply to: January Cumulative Update Successfully Installed #2636522

      Yesterday, February 10th, using WUSHOWHIDE, I updated my Windows 10 22H2 computer. I installed the Malicious Removal Tool KB890830 and the Cumulative Update 22H2 KB5034122. Everything went fine. I then paused Updates for 35 days.

      This morning, February 11th, as I always do, I double-checked to verify I paused to 35 days, which I had. However, when I clicked on “Uninstall updates”, UPDATE FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS BK5032005 had been installed today, Feb 11, 2024, but it does not appear in “View Update History”. I had done nothing else after booting this system except to check that I paused updates, so I don’t know how this update was installed.

      Question #1: Why does this update appear in “Uninstall Updates” and not in Update History?

      Question #2: Since updates were paused for 35 days and I was on metered connection, how did this update occur?

      Question #3: Should I uninstall this update?

       

      Thank you ahead of time for your response.

      Thank you for your response. Pertaining to your comments:

      1. I did not receive any errors of any kind.
      2. I am not very savvy with computers; however, I tried to obtain info on application logs. I goggled applications logs and did the following steps. I don’t know if this is what you were referring to concerning application logs:
        1. I went to “Event Viewer”
        2. I clicked on “Application and Service Logs” and clicked on ACEEvent Logs, Microsoft Office Alerts, and Windows Powershell since they were the only items listed with a number greater than 0, and after scrolling down thru the items, there were no Error messages, just “Information” listed under the column “Level”.
      3. I have not tried another browser, but that may be my only option. I just wanted to avoid trying to uninstall Edge, which previously was unsuccessful.
      4. I have no idea what “DEV channel version of Edge is”.

      Thank you again.

    • in reply to: Edge Download Problems #2548465

      I tried to uninstall thru Programs and Features but was unsuccessful. I then tried using Revo installer, but Edge did not show up. Once I did a system restore, everything was fine until I tried to update, and then the problems began again.

       

      Thanks for your suggestion.

    • in reply to: Replies: Daily Computer Tip #2481898

      Regarding the BIOS: Is there a need to somehow backup all the settings in my computer’s BIOS? I am relatively inexperienced in computer hardware/software, but I booted my computer to show the BIOS settings and there were tons of them. I quickly got out of BIOS since the information was Greek to me, but if I have problems with my computer, will I need a copy of these settings?

      Thank you for any info you can provide.

    • I am currently running Windows 10 HOME 21H1. When I run wushowhide, it works perfectly except it always downloads any Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework before I can hide it. The “Preview” update seems to ignore wushowhide, I then have to wait for it to install and then I manually have to uninstall the update, which takes a considerable amount of time installing/uninstalling. It there something I am doing wrong with wushowhide. Besides the preview update, wushowhide works perfectly.

      I follow PKCano instructions shown below.

      Thank you for any assistance.

    • in reply to: UPGRADE FROM OFFICE 2016 TO 2019 OR 2021? #2446977

      Thank you for the information. Could you answer one additional question that I have concerning your response?

      You made two statements in your response concerning Outlook: (1) “If you have Office 2016 Outlook, it may not support oauth for gmail and some other email servers, but the new versions may not work perfectly either especially with pop3”, and (2) “If you do not use outlook and you are not having complaints from collaborators about your files not behaving right, I see little reason to upgrade”.

      In Office, I only use Word, Excel and Outlook 2016 in my work, but I do use them extensively. I do not even have a gmail account, and I use Outlook 2016 daily to send Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. For years, I have not had any problems with Word, Excel, or Outlook.

      Question: I feel very comfortable with Office 2016 and I am in no real hurry to make Bill Gates even wealthier. Taking into account your above statements about possible issues with Outlook, under my circumstances, would you recommend staying with Outlook 2016?

      Thanks again.

However, when I get to step #4, after I click on “Resume Updates” and immediately run wushowhide, Windows Update has already started downloading the .Net Framework 3.5. Wushowhide hides all the other updates I do not want, but it does not even provide a chance to hide the .Net Framework. Am I missing a step in the directions to stop the download of the .Net Framework? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

    • in reply to: MS-DEFCON 4: July updates should be installed #2382488

      Last year I requested from PKCano step-by-step instructions for running WUSHOWHIDE and received very explicit instructions that have worked fine until the last two months. I am following the same written instructions, but WUSHOWHIDE is not cooperating. Today, I followed the normal steps up to   setting Windows Update Services to “Disabled” and then stopped the service. I then restarted the computer and then set Windows Update Services to “Manual”. When I open WUSHOWHIDE and tried to Pause to 7 days, I could not because the “Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework had already downloaded. I don’t get a chance to hide the file and the only options available was to restart and install. Any suggestions?

    • Sorry for the previous request. I don’t know what that highlighted material is after “Mark class…”. I will try again.

      Using wushowhide, I hid an update I received thru Windows Update: intel 2031.15.0.1743. Should I install this update?

      After I sent the above request, I ran wushowhide again and hid the following new Intel update:

      Should I install this update?

    • in reply to: Missing cumulative update for November #2319253

      Sorry for the pesky questions and I certainly appreciate everyone’s patience and assistance, but I am almost there —  wushowhide actually hid the downloads and did not install them.

      I followed your recent instructions, and when I clicked on “Show Hidden Updates” I received the following: (ALL boxes unchecked)

      2020-10 Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10     KB4580325
      Windows Malicious Software Removal Took                                                 KB890830
      2020-11 Cumulative Update Preview for .Net Framwork 3.5 & 4.8           KB4586878
      2020-10 Update for Window 10 version 1909 for x64…                                KB4023057
      Feature Update to Windows 10, version 2004

      Then, when I ran Windows update again, the following appeared:

      You’re not up to date
                    Last checked: Today 3:19pm
      You’re device is missing important security and quality fixes.
      Check for Updates.

      The next step should be “Pause”, then immediately “Resume”. However, there is no Pause or Resume, just “Check for updates”. Should I just click on “Check for updates”??

      Once more, thank you.

      I just ran wushowhide according to the steps in AKB200013. Unfortunately, it found NO updates and NO hidden updates. However, when I opened Settings/Update and Security, the system started downloading a slew of updates. Before the downloading had a chance to start, I clicked out of Settings. When I went back to Update and Security, I was able to Pause updates until Jan 17, 2021!!  I have no idea how this happened.

      Here are the exact steps that I followed (I wrote them down as I did them):

      1. Did System Image
      2. Made sure on metered connection
      3. Shut down computer
      4. Booted up computer and verified still on metered connection
      5. Ran wushowhide after unchecking auto fix
      6. Wushowhide did not find any updates and non were hidden.
      7. Opened Services — clicked on “Disable”, then “Apply”, then “STOP” services in upper left corner
      8. “RESTART”
      9. Opened Services — Set to “Manual”, then “Apply”, the “Close”.
      10. Ran Wushowhide — no updates hidden
      11. Opened Settings — Update and Security
      12. Could not hit PAUSE since only “Resume Updates” was available
      13. This is when the NEW Updates showed up and the system started downloading, I clicked out
      14. When I came back to Updates, I was able to pause to Jan 17, 2021.
      15. What did I do wrong because I wanted to be able to hide the updates, then pick which files I wanted to download??
      16. When I then clicked on Update history, I received the following info:

      Feature Updates

      Any assistance greatly appreciated.

    • in reply to: Missing cumulative update for November #2319100

      I read AKB2000013 in its entirety as you recommended in your December 7 report # 2317951 and also read #2287011. Per your recommendation, I am now going to use Matador’s method. Could you clarify one item please: When I begin this entire process I believe I do the following steps: (1) Make sure metered connection is “ON”, (2)  REBOOT the computer, (3) once the computer has completed booting up, the directions state to run “WUSHOWHIDE”. Before I run Wushowhide, do I need to turn OFF metered connection?

      Thanks once again for all your assistance.

    • in reply to: Missing cumulative update for November #2317946
      1. I am running HOME Windows 10 1909 (OS Build 18363.1082) on a Dell XPS 8900 x64-based.

       

      1. Currently, Windows Update is paused and set to continue December 14, 2020. When I view Update history, I receive the following:
        1. Feature Updates (1)
          1. Feature Update to Windows 10, version 2004
          2. Failed to install on 11/9/2020 – 0x8024000b
        2. Quality Updates (4)
          1. 2020-09 Update for Win 10 1909                                            (KB4023057)
          2. 2020-09 Cumulative Update Win 10 1909                           (KB4574727
          3. 2020-09 Cumulative Preview Update .Net Framework    (KB4576947)
          4. 2020-09 Security Update for Adobe Flash Player             (KB4561600)
          5. Definition Updates (15)

       

       

      1. My plan is to resume Windows Update today (before Patch Tuesday), install any updates before Patch Tuesday on tomorrow, then Pause updates for another 35 days. However, I am concerned that Windows 2004 will install and I really do not want to install 2004 at this time. I was going to try to run wushowhide; however, looking at all the different scenarios presented by different pages, it seems there are likewise just as many different steps for running wushowhide ( PKCano #233671 & #2303099, @Matador #2286979)).
      2. I read many of the posts, and was directed to AKB2000013, but I cannot find this information.
      3. Could some provide either (1) where to find AKB2000013 or  (2) step-by-step procedure for resuming Windows Update and using wushowhide so that I do not install recent updates, especially 2004.

      Thank you.

    • in reply to: Need help upgrading Win10 1903 to 1909 #2299167

      Everything is working great. I did a final update and all is well. Thanks  once again for your time and expertise. Your directions/explanations were specific and spot-on. Thanks again!
