      Yes, I confirmed both accounts updated on mine as well. Many thanks again to @n0ads for posting and to you for requesting the details.

      Chrome is on both accounts. I didn’t check the admin account after the update to make sure it was there as well, but I’ll check and let you know when I have access to that laptop again. I was presuming that the system-level switch would do just that but I didn’t check.

    • Thank you very much for your help. Following your instructions and using the system-level switch on a standard account, I managed to install the update and Chrome now shows the updated version. I rarely use this Windows 7 installation online and when I do I don’t use Chrome, but I like that it has this fix just in case. I appreciate the specific instructions, since I wasn’t having any luck getting it to update on either an administrative account or a standard account before following them.

      Installed the June updates (CU KB5027215 and .NET KB5027797 and KB5027538) today on our Windows 10 Pro laptop without a problem. Winver is now 19045.3086. Thanks to everyone here for all the information.

    • Everything seems to have gone well with the installation and update. I unhid the 4.8 installer KB4503548 and Windows Update installed it without any problem. It did take about 15 minutes to install.

      After the restart, I let things run for about 45 minutes until Trusted Installer calmed down and then used the dotNETFx4_ESU_Installer_r to install the April 2022 4.8 update KB5012125. Again, there were no problems and it took about 8 minutes. Installed Updates shows both KB5012125 and KB4503575 installed as of today.

      Everything seems to be working well. Thanks once again for your advice and reassurance!

    • in reply to: MS-DEFCON 4: Get those June updates installed #2375447

      Windows 10 Pro 20H2 updated successfully today with the June CU KB5003637 and haven’t had any issues so far. Winver is now 19042.1052. I was offered KB4023057 again but hid it again; I wasn’t offered an MSRT or .NET update.

      I turned off News and Interests using the right-click on the taskbar method and rebooted. I had downloaded the preview KB5003690 beforehand to have ready in case of any problems, but so far the other taskbar icons are OK.

      Printing is working fine with my Brother printer.

      Thanks to everyone here for all the information and advice for getting through another month of patching.

    • in reply to: Location in browsers defaults to city in another state #2318858

      @rebop2020,
      Thanks for the links, and I can imagine it would be a pain for your IP address to switch to a different state.

      But again, my issue doesn’t really seem to be the IP address, or at least not directly. All those sites you linked show my IP address in the correct state and the correct city, or sometimes an AT&T server in Redmond, WA. I just don’t know where the Oklahoma City is coming from.

      In order for websites like the ones you listed to see my IP address, I have to turn off UBlock Origin, except for tracemyip.org, which sees it even when UBlock Origin is turned on. So I’m beginning to wonder if Oklahoma City is some kind of default inserted by UBlock Origin, or by websites like the airline sites when they can’t determine an IP address.

    • in reply to: Location in browsers defaults to city in another state #2318855

      @b,
      Oh no, I don’t want my real location to be displayed. I just was trying to understand why it said Oklahoma City when the IP address location is NOT Oklahoma city (unlike some of the other posts in this thread). The IP address location is our actual city. That’s why I couldn’t figure out how Oklahoma City came into it.

      I’d be happy if those websites just showed a blank location (as many do) instead of automatically filling in OKC.

      I guess really I was just concerned that there might be something else going on, I don’t know, some bad actor using our connection or something!

      @lhiggins,
      Man, that sounds like a real pain, sorry. At least we don’t have problems like that.

      Thanks, everyone, for your reassuring information. I’m not sure that I understand all of the details, but it does seem as if I don’t have a real cause for concern.

      I was mostly concerned because sites like whatsmyipaddress and the vpnoverview site linked in Kirsty’s response *do* identify my actual city as my location, so this Oklahoma City thing didn’t appear to be coming from my IP address. I don’t use a vpn.

      Another thing I don’t quite understand is that the websites that default to the Oklahoma City location consistently show that one location rather than changing to different locations at different times. When I look at the modem/router interface, all of our devices show as using dhcp, so I thought that meant that the IP address would change occasionally, but that doesn’t appear to be happening.

      So I still don’t completely understand, but as long as it’s not a security problem, I will just accept it and hope it’s possibly a good thing.

    • I read that to say “… when the current version is released”

      That is the way I read it as well, based on how PKCano has explained it in the past. I am on version 1909 and have my feature update deferral set to 200 days. If those 200 days were based on the release date of 1909, I should have seen 2004 (or at least that message that it was coming?) by now, since 200 days has elapsed since November 2019. But I haven’t seen hide nor hair of 2004.

      Admittedly, the 2004 rollout has been mysterious about which machines are targeted, so it’s possible I’m not seeing it for other reasons.

      Seems to me the best and simplest advice is what geekdom advised in post #2295426 above (https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/comments-on-akb-2000016-guide-for-windows-update-settings-for-windows-10/#post-2295426}:

      “Set TargetReleaseVersion to 1909 now. When you want to install Version 2004, set TargetReleaseVersion to 2004.”

    • The 365-day expiration isn’t coming up soon. See post #2295348, where PK explained that the feature deferral defers the most current version (2004, not 1909):

      “… it applies to how long the later version (v2004) has been deferred, which was around 107 days on Sept Patch Tues. v2004 was released May 27, 2020 – so you are deferring it for the number of days from that date.”
