More problems with Windows patches

And the “hits” continue. Three new bugs from January 8th batch of updates.

After installing the Windows 7 SP1 cumulative update or the security only update version, those running the Professional or Enterprise version of Windows 7 SP1 may receive a message stating that their copy of Windows is not activated, “counterfeit copy” or “not genuine” if KMS is used. See here for further information.

Windows 8.1 has a bug where after installing the cumulative security update, third-party applications may have difficulty authenticating hotspots. This only is for the cumulative update.  An update is expected later this month.

Windows 10 has the same hotspot bug but only for v1809 and v1709 – not v1803. An update is expected later this month.

There is another bug with the Windows 7 SP1 update [but not confirmed by Microsoft] related to the cumulative update and its security only update where it is causing SMBv2 shares to be inaccessible once it is installed on the host.

There is a further bug with an Office 2010 security update but it only affects Windows XP users. Seriously?  As Windows XP is not supported, don’t expect Microsoft to fix the issue unless it gets fixed in a future update.
