      Win 10 1909 Pro .NET KB4569751 causing continual crashes and reboots.
      I would put this as a separate thread topic but don’t know how to do that.  Sorry for this being long but want to give details.

       

      Have Win 10 1909 Pro.  Installed KB4565351 and KB4569751.  On 08/28 I installed KB4565351 first (build 18363.1016) then KB4570723 .NET (didn’t catch that KB4569751 had been replaced by KB4570723).  System began crashing and rebooting.  System would stay up for just a few minutes before crashing/rebooting.  Did this multiple times.  Have had issues with .NET patches in the past so I suspected the crashing and rebooting may be due to KB4570723.  I uninstalled KB4570723 and .NET was back to KB4565633 and system was stable again, no more crashes.

       

      I then went to the Catalog and downloaded and installed KB4569751.  System began crashing and rebooting again.  I uninstalled KB4569751 putting .NET back to KB4565633 and system was stable again.

       

      Today, 09/05 Windows Update showed KB4569751 as pending install.  Did not want to install it and wushowhide did not show it to be hidden.  But, I thought since KB4570723 was replaced by KB4569751 that the crashing may have been fixed.  So I installed KB4569751 and the system began crashing and rebooting again, only staying up a few minutes each time.  I uninstalled KB4569751 putting .NET back to KB4565633.  System is stable again.  No issues with July .NET KB4565633.

       

      I cannot find anything in the event logs that indicates the reason for the system crashing.  Is it hardware?  Software?  Wushowhide is empty, nothing to hide.  I’m not sure but I suspect when Windows Update runs again that KB4569751 will again show up as pending download.  Wushowhide will not show it to hide.  So how do I get rid of it when it shows up again in Windows Update.

      Thanks.  I downloaded KB4575903 from the Microsoft Update Catalog and installed it.

      I checked Settings and Windows Update ran on its own about 45 minutes ago and since I hid KB4562900, it does not show up and there are no updates to download.  I am up to date according to Windows Update.  Build info is 1909 18363.959

      Although I built a new Win10 desktop and put it into service a week ago, there is nothing wrong with my 6-year old Win7 machine it replaced.  At this point I do not plan to put it out to pasture and am considering getting as much mileage out of it as possible which will include purchasing a year-2 ESU license and perhaps year-3.  When the time comes, will you publish year-2 ESU instructions?

      Question. I hid KB4562900.  This .NET preview will be replaced with the actual .NET rollup in August which I assume will be ok to install then.  Both won’t be available for install will they, just the actual Aug .NET?  Should I just let it ride and wait for when the ok is given to install the Aug patches when that day comes.

       

      I am on Pro. Reading KB2000013.  Windows Update service (wuauserv) is Manual (Trigger Start).  Windows Update Properties says Startup type: Manual, Service status: Stopped

       

      A bit confused.  Reading KB2000013.  wuauserv says the service is already Manual and Stopped.  wushowhide says KB4562900 is hidden.

      So I should let Windows Update run on it’s own schedule to check for updates to clear the queue (assuming nothing else shows up then) or is it safe to run check for updates myself now to clear the queue.  The only other update in wushowhide is a Silverlight update KB4481252 but it does not show up in Windows Update, only KB4562900 does.  Should I hide KB4481252 also?

      I hid it via wushowhide.  So the next time Windows Update runs, it will not show up?

      According to Gunter’s article, KB4575903 is for Enterprise users of Windows 7 SP1. Microsoft’s article does not specifically mention Enterprise which seems to indicate that Professional is included also.  Does KB4575903 apply to Professional? And, is it ok to install?

      I have group policy set per Section 4 of KB2000016.  I checked Settings to see if anything showed up and KB4562900 is pending download.  Since it is a preview, should I hide it?

      I purchased 3 ESU licenses using the form created by Amy and Ted.  Upon receiving an email from Ted which included the product key and the Office 365 admin credentials for the user account they set up, I successfully installed and activated the ESU product key on 2 machines using Susan’s instructions outlined in the 12/23 AskWoody Plus Newsletter.  Will do the 3rd machine later.  I also went to the Office 365 Admin Portal using the supplied credentials.  Thanks Susan, Amy, and Ted.
