  1. Windows 11 received its first Patch Tuesday Update a few hours ago. It's not a huge update considering the OS just started rolling out generally in a staggered manner over a week ago. It fixes just some compatibility issues, seemingly without introducing new ones. However, if you still felt that the update installed on your PC quicker than you expected, Microsoft has now provided more insight into what made this possible. Before we go into the details of what has changed in Windows 11's servicing model, it's important to discuss the motivation behind the change as well as the existing servicing model. Windows is an OS that is used in a variety of environments all over the globe especially in this hybrid environment where everyone may not have access to the fastest internet connections but still need to remain protected through security patches. This is why it's essential that patches are small in size, especially since monthly cumulative updates contain all previously released fixes. Windows 10 version 1809 and above use paired forward and reverse differential compression described in the diagram above. It ensures that the OS can revert to its base version as an intermediate state while servicing. As you may notice, while the forward and reverse differentials are symmetric, they feature very different content. Microsoft does not utilize a bidirectional delta because some transforms and patches may delete the data that is needed for a reverse delta. For a non-destructive transform to be ensured, a reverse delta would first need to store the content added and deleted by the forward delta. However, as we noted above, due to the disjoint in content, the process would not be very efficient, at least when compared to paired forward and reverse differential compression. You can find out more details about this process in Microsoft's whitepaper here. Microsoft has significantly change this process in Windows 11 using an approach called reverse update data generation. It's a seemingly simple and intuitive approach that observes the delta instructions and then reverses them directly without going through the paired delta reverse pass. However, on the backend, this constitutes a significant backend change that uses a mapping table to map the resultant changes in assembly code functions. Microsoft explains that: The mapping works by running a byte-by-byte disassembly of the program’s assembly code and identifying the virtual addresses. Virtual addresses correspond logically to entry points for assembly code functions and shift when the assembly code is updated with a fix. These shifts are observed by the delta engine and are captured by a mapping table. The mapping process on delta apply normalizes the addresses of these changes and is a large part of the reason of why modern architecturally enlightened delta algorithms are so efficient. Much like the basic patching instructions, these transforms can be “observed” and reversed. There is a slight overhead as not all mappings are 1:1, and where forward mapping conflicts with its observed reverse mapping, additional patch instruction must be used to align the mapping. This can be done in-place, and the reverse mapping will provide nearly the same performance as a reverse delta with a direct mapping from a delta generation done on the server. Microsoft claims that its reverse update data generation approach has resulted in a 40% reduction in the size of Windows 11 updates. The company says that it also filed for a patent for this methodology a few months ago. It remains to be seen whether Microsoft will backport this technique to Windows 10 as well. This is how Microsoft reduced the size of Windows 11 updates by 40%
  2. Although nobody has spent significant time with the Surface Duo 2, tech experts are appreciative of the fact that the latest Duo addresses all the major complaints of its predecessor. However, there is one thing that everybody wanted Microsoft to change, and that’s the software update policy. A Microsoft representative has recently confirmed to Android Authority that the latest Surface Duo 2 will get the benefit of three years of OS and security updates. In retrospect, Microsoft promised the same update policy during the launch of Surface Duo—that it would deliver three years of OS and security updates. While three years of updates can be considered decent, its competitors are doing a better job when it comes to software updates. All the latest Galaxy smartphones are eligible to get the benefit from fours years of software updates. To put it in perspective, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will get fours years of updates, while Surface Duo 2 will stop receiving them three years after launch. You can read our Surface Duo 2 vs Galaxy Z Fold 3 specs battle article here. It’s worth noting that the first generation Duo is yet to receive the Android 11 update, making it the only premium foldable smartphone that is still running Android 10. On the bright side, however, Surface Duo is confirmed to get the Android 11 update by the end of this year, though the exact release date is still not known. The new Surface Duo 2 features Dual PixelSense Fusion Displays (5.8” touchscreens open to 8.3”). The displays also support a 90Hz screen refresh rate and are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The dual-screen smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and has a triple camera setup, which is consists of a 12 MP telephoto, a 12 MP wide-angle, and a 16 MP ultra-wide. The Surface Duo also has what is called a Glance Bar, allowing you to check incoming calls and messages, adjust the volume, and check battery life while charging. You can check the full Surface Duo specs here. Microsoft sheds light on its Surface Duo 2 update commitments
  3. Microsoft is now pushing the September 2021 update to the Surface Duo smartphone, taking the build number 2021.817.35(North America), 2021.817.37 (Europe). The update adds no new features, as you’d expect from a monthly security update. The update weighs in at 76.18 MB and contains the September 2021 Android security update. You can read the official changelog below. Changelog Software version Update info 2021.817.35 (North America) 2021.817.37 (Europe) This update: Addresses scenarios outlined in the Android Security Bulletin – September 2021. It’s worth noting that the Surface Duo is yet to get the Android 11 update. What’s even worse is that Microsoft didn’t share anything about the availability of Android 11 for the Surface Duo smartphone. Meanwhile, Surface Duo users can wait for the update to be pushed out to them, or they can download it by Checking for Updates in the System Update section of the Settings app. Surface Duo starts getting September 2021 update
  4. Every time Google updates its browser, it publishes release notes aimed at enterprises to highlight upcoming additions, substitutions, enhancements and modifications. Here's a sneak preview of what's coming. When Chrome changes, people pay attention — not only because Chrome is the world's most popular browser, but also because its underlying technologies, and the decisions that go into making those technologies, power a host of rivals, notably Microsoft's Edge. Each Chrome upgrade is accompanied by enterprise-centric release notes that highlight some of the additions, deletions, enhancements, and modifications slated for the future. We've collected the most important for this update of Computerworld's latest what's-coming round-up. Nothing is guaranteed, as Google itself says: "They might change, be delayed, or canceled before launching to the Stable channel." But these ongoing notes are the best forecasting source available. Chrome 94: Shift to speedier releases Google's new four-week release cadence for Chrome begins with v. 94, which will launch Sept. 21. From that point on, Google will roll out a Chrome upgrade every four weeks, with an exception for the end-of-year holidays. Chrome 94 also starts the clock on the Extended Stable release channel, which will be upgraded every eight weeks, giving enterprise IT admins who manage (through group policies) the option of a slower tempo. Commercial customers who adopt Extended Stable will run v. 94 for eight weeks, when it will be replaced by v. 96 on Nov. 16. Meanwhile, security-only updates will be distributed every two weeks to Extended Stable builds. Chrome 94: Hubba Hubba A new content-sharing feature that Google calls a sharing hub will debut in Chrome 94 (rather than in Chrome 93, where it was once supposed to appear). The hub, which is actually a menu, can be called up by clicking on a new icon in the address bar. During Computerworld's test, the icon, a right-facing caret, was at the right of the address bar. The menu will offer users a wide range of sharing-the-current-page functions, including sharing with apps like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others; creating a QR code for the page's URL; and casting the page to any already-set destinations, such as a smart TV or another device. Chrome users can press fast-forward and begin using the sharing hub immediately by setting an option on the experimental features page reached after entering chrome://flags in the address bar. Find the "Desktop Sharing Hub in Omnibox" item, set the drop-down menu at the right to "Enabled" and restart the browser. Enterprise IT can control this functionality with the DesktopSharingHubEnabled group policy. Chrome 94: Settings get themselves organized Beginning with v. 94, Google will replace the existing single long Settings pane — brought up by clicking the main menu, the three vertical dots at the far right of the Chrome frame, then selecting Settings — with a page that consists of several sections. Google said the change should result in better navigability of the browser's options. As with most Chrome changes or enhancements, Google will introduce the new Settings pane gradually, starting with a subsection of the user base, then expanding the distribution to more copies. It's likely that no everyone will see the Settings change in Chrome 94. Chrome 94: Make HTTPS Great Again! Chrome already defaults to loading pages over HTTPS (rather than the once-standard and less-secure HTTP) protocol, assuming the destination has an HTTPS-secured page. But Chrome 94 will take that lean-into-HTTPS one step further with what Google's calling "HTTPS-First" mode. If HTTPS-First is enabled — it will be off by default — Chrome will try to upgrade all page loads to HTTPS and if unsuccessful, display a full-screen warning before allowing a click-through to the HTTP destination. HTTPS-First is thus a more aggressive version of what Chrome now delivers: It puts every page through the HTPP-or-HTTPS check and posts an alert for the non-compliant destinations. Google said that a group policy would be available to enterprise IT to disable the HTTPS-First mode. Chrome 95: Chrome apps to die, for real this time...seriously Google has been planning the demise of Chrome apps for years, and with v. 95, the company is literally pulling the plug: Chrome apps "will no longer function." Chrome 95 is to launch Oct. 19. (The Chrome 95 cut-off was later than a 2020 adjustment had specified as June 2021. Last year's deadline change likely was prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the original drop-dead was to be in 2018, so Google has been working this for quite some time.) Enterprises will be allowed to extend support for Chrome apps until June 2022, the previously-announced date, using a group policy. Fast forward: What's coming in future Chrome updates?

  5. Microsoft recently released August 2021 system updates for Surface Book 2 devices. These updates are available for all Surface Book 2 devices running Windows 10 May 2019 Update, version 1903 (19H1), or greater. These updates address critical security vulnerability and improve device stability. Microsoft has also improved camera and audio stability and reliability with these updates. Find the full change log below.

  6. Windows 11 future updates: Here's everything you need to know With Windows 11, Microsoft is retaining Windows 10's servicing model known as 'Windows as a Service (WaaS)'. As part of WaaS, Microsoft plans to deliver an always up-to-date experience with the latest features and security updates. In a support document, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 11 will get all updates currently offered to Windows 10, including Patch Tuesday, optional preview, OOB (out of band), and more. However, there will be one change to the update cadence: Windows 11 will be updated once a year with new features, and that feature update will be released in the second half of the year. Windows 11 Cumulative Updates The cumulative updates, otherwise known as monthly updates or Patch Tuesday, will be released at least once a month and include quality improvements, bug fixes, and security fixes. Different types of Windows 11 updates:: Windows 11 “B” release or Patch Tuesday updates will be published on the second Tuesday of each month, known as Patch Tuesday, with security improvements and sometimes quality fixes. On the same day, Windows 10 will also receive updates with identical fixes. Windows 11 “C” and “D” releases: These updates will be released in the third and fourth weeks of the month respectively. Compatibility and Reliability Update Compatibility and Reliability Updates (out-of-band) releases do not follow the standard release schedule, and they can be released ahead of a feature update to ease the installation experience. Microcode updates Microsoft will still offer Intel microcode updates to mitigate known vulnerabilities or hardware issues in CPU if necessary. Update for Windows Defender Antivirus Definition Update for Windows Defender Antivirus will be released regularly to update the detections used by Microsoft Defender Antivirus. Malicious Software Removal Tool Windows 11 is technically Windows 10 (NT.10) and it will also get Malicious Software Removal Tool updates every month to remove known infections from a computer. Windows 11 LTSC For those who prefer to use Windows versions for an extended period of time, Microsoft is planning to offer LTSC version of Windows 11, but we don't know when the LSTC version will be released. Windows 11 future updates: Here's everything you need to know
  7. How to block the Windows 11 update Microsoft's Windows 11 operating system will be released later this year and systems that are compatible with the new version of Windows may be upgraded to it free of charge. Administrators have a choice when it comes to the Windows 11 update: keep a device on Windows 10, which is supported until 2025, or update to the new operating system. Microsoft revealed that Windows 11 won't be pushed forcefully to systems running Windows 10 via Windows Update. Administrators need to seek for the update actively using Windows Updates. Whether the process is going to change in the future remains to be seen. Microsoft did tighten the screws back when it released Windows 10 as an optional update. It is possible that Windows 11 will be pushed more aggressively the closer Windows 10's end of service date approaches. The easy way The easiest option, for now at least, is to avoid the "check for updates" button in Settings > Update & Security. If you don't activate the button, Windows 11 won't be offered via Windows Updates. The option may be temporary, but it should work for the foreseeable future. Blocking the Windows 11 update Blocking the update is not as straightforward as blocking feature updates for Windows 10. Up to Windows 10 version 21H1, there is only an option to delay feature update installations. Problem is: if you activate the option using the Group Policy Editor or Windows Registry, you will also block the upcoming Windows 10 version 21H2 update. If you don't mind delaying the installation, which may help avoid any bugs and issues discovered in first couple of months, then this works right now. Using the Group Policy Editor The Group Policy Editor is only available in Professional, Education and Enterprise editions of Windows 10. Open the Start Menu. Type gpedit.msc and load the Group Policy Editor once it is displayed in the search results. Go to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Windows Update for Business Double-click on "Select the target feature update version". Set the policy to Enabled. Type 21H1 into the field. Close the Group Policy Editor. Note: You may switch to 21H2 once it is added to the release information page on Microsoft's Docs website. You may also wait a couple of months as Windows 11's release is months away. Using the Registry Open the Start Menu. Type regedit.exe and select the Registry Editor search result. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate. Set the Dword TargetReleaseVersion to 1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > Dword (32-bit) Value. Set the value of TargetReleaseVersionInfo to 21H1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > String Value. Restart the PC. Again, replace 21H1 with the new version of Windows 10 once it is listed on the Docs website. From Windows 10 version 21H2 onward Microsoft changed the policy in preview versions of its Windows 11 operating system, and it is likely that the updated policy will also be introduced on Windows 10 devices. Administrators may specify a Windows version and a feature update version in the updated policy. Using it, you may select Windows 10 as the version and then a feature update version for the operating system, e.g. 21H2. Open the Group Policy Editor again (as described above). Go to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Manage updates offered from Windows Update. Double-click on "Select the target feature update version". Enable the policy. Set the target version of the operating system to Windows 10. Set the target feature update to 21H2 or another. Using the Registry Editor Open the Registry Editor on the system. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate. Set TargetReleaseVersion to 1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > Dword (32-bit) Value. Set ProductVersion to Windows 10. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > String Value. Set TargetReleaseVersionInfo to 21H2. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > String Value. Restart the PC. How to block the Windows 11 update
  8. Windows 11: one feature update per year and longer support cycles Microsoft's upcoming Windows 11 operating system will receive one feature update per year and each version will be supported for a longer period. Windows 11 shares many features with Windows 10, but there are also fundamental differences between the two operating system versions. One of the core differences is the switch from releasing two feature updates per year for Windows 10 to releasing a single feature update for Windows 11. The feature update for Windows 11 will always be released in the second half of the year, and it will be supported for 24 months on the consumer side and for 36 months on the Enterprise. Compared to Windows 10, Home users and Enterprise customers do get an extra 6 month of support, when compared to the second feature update release of the year. Edition Servicing timeline (one release per year) Windows 11 Enterprise Windows 11 Education Windows 11 IoT Enterprise 36 months from release date Windows 11 Pro Windows 11 Pro Education Windows 11 Pro for Workstations Windows 11 Home 24 months from release date Home editions are the only edition of Windows 11 that don't support the deferral of feature updates. Microsoft notes in its Lifecycle FAQ that these "receive a new version of Windows 11 prior to the end-of-servicing date shown". User feedback and a change to Microsoft's overall update approach were the main drivers for extending the servicing period and the switching to a single feature update per year release schedule. The upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 on consumer devices is only available to systems that meet the new hardware requirements. Updates are made available to administrators who check for updates manually. Microsoft did not reveal if it plans to change the upgrade process closer to Windows 10's end of servicing. While updates using Windows Update are out of the question for devices that are not compatible, it may be possible to update these using other means, e.g. direct installations. Enterprise customers will be able to use the same tools and services that are available on Windows 10 when it comes to Windows 11. Tools like Windows Update for Business, Microsoft Endpoint Manager or Windows Autopilot are available for use in these environments. Microsoft will release Windows 10 version 21H2 in the second half of the year. A new Windows 19 LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel) edition will be released as well around the time. Windows 11 will also be released in the second half of 2021, likely in October 2021. Closing Words Longer support periods and less frequent feature updates make the administration of Windows 11 devices less stressful. Windows 11: one feature update per year and longer support cycles
  9. Microsoft will release future PowerShell updates via Windows Update Microsoft is making it easier to update PowerShell on Windows 10 and Windows Server devices by releasing future updates through the Microsoft Update service. PowerShell provides users with a command-line shell, a scripting language focused on automation, and a framework for processing PowerShell cmdlets. It runs on all major operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and macOS, and it allows working with structured data such as JSON, CSV, and XML, as well as object models and REST APIs. Microsoft has already started working on a PowerShell release that will upgrade 7.2 preview.5 and later to 7.2 preview.7 through Microsoft Update. Still, it will only be pushed after releasing an update on GitHub due to the significant changes to the update process and the additional validation required. "In the past, Windows users were notified in their console that a new version of PowerShell 7 is available, but they still had to hop over to our GitHub release page to download and install it, or rely on a separate package management tool like the Windows Package Manager, Chocolatey, or Scoop," said PowerShell Senior Software Engineer Travis Plunk. "But with Microsoft Update, you’ll get the latest PowerShell 7 updates directly in your traditional Windows Update (WU) management flow, whether that’s with Windows Update for Business, WSUS, SCCM, or the interactive WU dialog in Settings." PowerShell command-line shell How to upgrade PowerShell via Microsoft Update To update PowerShell via Microsoft Update, your computer needs to run Windows 10 RS3 (10.0.16299) or later together with PowerShell 7.2 (preview 5 or 6). You're also required to configure your device to receive updates for Microsoft products. You can enable to feature by going to Settings > Windows Update > Advanced options and toggling on "Receive updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows." You also need to opt-in to use Microsoft Update for PowerShell 7 updates by running a script available here. Once the PowerShell team releases the PowerShell 7.2 preview.7 update, you will be able to upgrade through the standard Windows update process. To keep PowerShell up to date, you will need to go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and then click Check for updates. "With today’s announcement, you’ll soon be able to try this new update process for yourself on the latest PowerShell 7.2 previews," Plunk added. Microsoft provides more info on how to test new installs of PowerShell 7.2 preview and to report any issues you encounter in today's announcement. Microsoft will release future PowerShell updates via Windows Update
  10. Microsoft pushes Windows 10 KB4023057 again to fix update issues Microsoft is rolling out the KB4023057 update again to all versions of Windows 10 to ensure that devices can successfully install new updates as they are released. KB4023057 is being released to offer "reliability improvements to Windows Update Service components" in Windows 10 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709, 1803, 1909, 2004, 20H2, and 21H1. Windows 10 KB4023057 update offered in Windows Update Microsoft routinely re-releases the KB4023057 to improve the reliability of the Windows Update process. "This update includes files and resources that address issues that affect the update processes in Windows 10 that may prevent important Windows updates from being installed," explains the KB4023057 support bulletin. "These improvements help make sure that updates are installed seamlessly on your device, and they help improve the reliability and security of devices that are running Windows 10." As part of the installation, the update may free up disk space by compressing files in the User Profile directory so Windows 10 can properly install future updates. When files are compressed, they will be displayed with two blue arrows overlaid on the file's icon, as shown below. Compressed files in Windows 10 After the update has finished installing, the files will be uncompressed, and the arrows will disappear. Microsoft states the KB4023057 update may perform the following when installed: This update may request your device to stay awake longer to enable the installation of updates. Note The installation will respect any user-configured sleep configurations and also your "active hours" when you use your device the most. This update may try to reset network settings if problems are detected, and it will clean up registry keys that may be preventing updates from being installed successfully. This update may repair disabled or corrupted Windows operating system components that determine the applicability of updates to your version of Windows 10. This update may compress files in your user profile directory to help free up enough disk space to install important updates. This update may reset the Windows Update database to repair the problems that could prevent updates from installing successfully. Therefore, you may see that your Windows Update history was cleared. This update will be automatically installed via Windows Update and is only available from the Microsoft Update Catalog for Windows 10, versions 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709, and 1803. Microsoft pushes Windows 10 KB4023057 again to fix update issues
  11. Firefox now autoupdates on Windows even when not running The Windows version of Firefox can now automatically upgrade itself to the latest version in the background when the web browser is not running. "Background Update is now available on Windows. This feature will allow Firefox to update, even if it is not running," the Firefox 90.0 Beta release notes read. "Until now, Firefox has only downloaded and installed updates when the user runs it. This means that users that use Firefox infrequently are often out-of-date," according to Kirk Steuber, Platform Engineer at Mozilla. "It also means that if they open Firefox again in response to a marketing campaign, they may not immediately get the features advertised. "Background Update aims to address this problem by allowing updates to be downloaded and installed, even when the user doesn't run Firefox." How the background update feature works Firefox background updates will be scheduled for the default profile every 7 hours when the browser is not running to check for new updates, download them, and install them without requiring user interaction. The underlying mechanism behind the OS-level scheduled update tasks is Firefox running in a stripped-down headless "Background Task Mode." While you are using Firefox, the headless Firefox process will not check for updates to avoid affecting the user experience by inadvertently forcing restarts. "If you need to disable this functionality, about:preferences should show a checkbox in the 'Updates' section for you to disable, or you can set the BackgroundAppUpdate Firefox policy to false," Mozilla's Nick Alexander said. Rolling out to all Windows users This new feature was first rolled out to Windows Nightly users on April 12 in the form of a Background Update Agent. Background Update is now part of a staged rollout to all Windows users over the next few months, as part of the Beta 89 and the Release 89 cycles. However, Mozilla first announced that the feature was under development more than four years ago as a background process designed to check for updates and apply them for users with slow Internet connections and/or who don't run Firefox daily. While background updates have already been announced for Windows, there are no immediate plans to implement the feature for macOS and Linux. On a related note, Firefox also installs an optional service named Mozilla Maintenance Service that only launches in the background when updates are downloaded. This service is designed to allow updates to be installed without requiring the user to click "Yes" in the Windows User Account Control (UAC) dialog. Firefox now autoupdates on Windows even when not running
  12. Microsoft releases May firmware update for the Surface Studio 2 Microsoft has released a new firmware update for Surface Studio 2, along with a new driver update for the discrete GPU in the device. The new updates improve system stability and addresses security updates. Recently, the Redmond giant also released firmware updates for a bunch of Surface devices including the Surface Pro 4, Surface Laptop 1, 2 and 4. The updates included general stability and performance improvements as well as device-specific patches for critical vulnerabilities. You can check out the full changelog for the update below: Windows Update History Name Device Manager Name Version and Update Surface – Firmware – 532.3681.768.0 Surface UEFI - Firmware 532.3681.768.0 Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

  13. Nvidia suggests uninstalling latest Windows 10 updates to fix gaming issues This month’s first mandatory cumulative updates were released in the second week with the promise of fixing problems that had been plaguing many users. However, despite the changelog says there are no critical issues, the list of issues in Windows 10 KB5001330 is growing steadily longer, with Nvidia now looking into the reports. A lot of users have reported that having installed Windows 10 KB5001330 cumulative update, they have also experienced some bad stuttering and FPS drop when playing games. “Previously ran Warcraft on a solid 140 FPS, now it’s stuttering occasionally and FPS has dropped to about 90 FPS,” one user wrote in the Feedback Hub. “Call of Duty Cold War and Warzone dropped down to 1 FPS and are completely unplayable. When running other games in fullscreen windowed the performance in Chrome on my secondary monitor is taking a massive hit too,” another user noted. Others have observed issues with Windows 10’s general performance and various crashes, but Microsoft has yet to acknowledge the reports. In a forum post, Nvidia employee has now recommended uninstalling the latest Windows Updates if you have gaming issues. “If you are seeing lower performance in games, check if rolling back Windows 10 Update KB5000842 solves the issue,” Nvidia said. To be clear, issues were first spotted in Windows 10’s March optional update KB5000842, but the bug appeared to have somehow slipped through the gaps to also appear in KB5001330 (April Patch Tuesday Update), which was pushed to users as a mandatory update this month. In short, April 2021 Patch Tuesday release seems like an odd update with some pretty wide-ranging problems. Some users have also reported that they cannot access the documents, pictures and other user folders because the operating systems boots with a temporary user profile. How to fix gaming issues after the update The only certain cure for the gaming and other issues reported in the cumulative update seems to be rolling back to the older version. Obviously, that’s far from an ideal solution, especially when we consider the important security fixes included in the latest update. If you’ve performance issues after the latest updates, you’ve two options – uninstall the patch or wait for next month’s update. To uninstall the updates, click the Start button, then click the Settings cog. Click Update & Security. On the next window, click “View update history,” then “Uninstall updates” in the top-left corner and look for the update in Control Panel that you want to remove.

Surface Pro 7 users can head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update to download the latest firmware updates. Do note that Microsoft seeds firmware updates in batches so you may not see the new updates right away. Alternatively, you can manually download and install the latest firmware and driver package from here. The latest updates are available for users running Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) or higher. Source: Surface Pro 7 gets a new firmware update to improve camera experience and more
  15. Surface Pro 6 gets new driver and firmware updates to improve stability A handful of Microsoft's Surface devices have already received firmware and driver updates over the past few days, and today, it's time for the Surface Pro 6 to join the fray. The 2-in-1 tablet first released over two years ago is getting a set of updates focused on improving stability and security. Most of the updates seem to be Intel-related, including a new graphics driver. Here's the full list: Windows Udpate History Name Device Manager Name Update Intel Corporation – Display – 27.20.100.8681 Intel(R) HD Graphics – Display adapters Improves graphics and system stability. Intel Corporation – Extension - 27.20.100.8681 Intel® Display Graphics Adapter Driver Extension Addresses security updates and improves system stability. Intel - Extension - 1952.14.0.1470 Intel(R) ICLS Client - Extension Addresses security updates and improves system stability. Intel – SoftwareComponent - 1.62.321.1 Intel(R) ICLS Client - Software devices Addresses security updates and improves system stability. Intel - System - 2040.100.0.1029 Intel(R) Management Engine Interface - System devices Addresses security updates and improves system stability. Surface - Firmware - 11.8.82.3838 Surface ME - Firmware Addresses security updates and improves system stability. The updates for the Surface Pro 6 come very shortly after the Surface Studio 2 got its own set of updates. The two devices were announced at the same event in late 2018, and while the Surface Pro 6 has already received a few successors, we have yet to see a follow-up to the Studio 2, so that's still Microsoft's flagship all-in-one. As usual, you'll need to be running Windows 10 version 1903 or newer to get the updates, but since that version is no longer supported by Microsoft, you should already be using something newer. You can find the updates in the Settings app under Windows Update. Alternatively, you can download the latest driver package from here.

  16. Surface Studio 2 gets updates with general improvements Today, Microsoft is releasing a round of driver and firmware updates for its Surface Studio 2 all-in-one PC. There's nothing wildly exciting about them, as they include security updates and system stability improvements. As usual, they're available for anyone running Windows 10 version 1903 or higher. Here's the full list of updates: Windows Update History Name Device Manager Name Version and Update Intel - Extension - 1952.14.0.1470 Intel(R) ICLS Client - Extension 1952.14.0.1470 Addresses security updates and improves system stability.

Surface - Firmware - 11.8.82.3838 Surface ME - Firmware 11.8.82.3838 Addresses security updates and improves system stability. Microsoft first announced the Surface Studio 2 back in October 2018, about two and a half years ago. It was at the same event where the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 were announced. But while those portable PCs have been refreshed since, the Surface Studio hasn't, still being sold with seventh-generation processors that are four generations old, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, which are two generations old. In fact, there aren't even any rumors or leaks around a new Surface Studio. Anyway, if you've got a Surface Studio 2, you can grab these updates through Windows Update. You can also download the drivers and firmware bundle for the device here. Source: Surface Studio 2 gets updates with general improvements
  17. LG Pledges To Update Phones For 3 Years Despite Quitting Smartphone Business LG has just released a new press release in which it pledges to update its smartphones for the next three years. This wouldn’t be so odd if LG did not announce its departure from the smartphone business. LG Electronics announced, a couple of days ago, that LG Mobile is shutting down, essentially. The company won’t be making any more smartphones moving forward. The company has been experiencing operating losses since 2015, and has decided to call quits. The company did promise, initially, that it will continue updating its phones, but we did not know the details, until now. LG has pledged to do so for the next three years, by announcing a “three-year pledge”. Premium LG smartphones will receive up to three iterations of Android OS Do note that this concerns only premium LG smartphones, though. LG said that its premium phones will receive “up to three iterations of Android operating system updates from the year of purchase”. This applies to LG premium smartphones that have been released in 2019 and later. So, it includes the LG G series, V series, Velvet, and Wing devices that fit in that time period. Some non-premium, 2020 models will also get updates moving forward Certain 2020 models, such as LG Stylo and K series, will also receive updates. LG says that those phones will receive two OS updates, in case you were wondering. LG will also continue manufacturing phones through the second quarter of 2021. Why? Well, in order to meet contractual obligations to carriers and partners. So, you’ll still be able to purchase LG’s smartphones, if you want. LG also said that you’re free to contact LG customer service support in your area, in case you have any specific questions about your smartphone, and what comes next. LG has a sketchy history when it comes to updates, so… let’s see what happens This is a huge promise by LG, and it will be interesting to see what will happen moving forward. LG was far from being timely with updates in the past. It took the company quite a bit of time to bring new iterations of Android to its smartphones. The company was well-known for it, unfortunately, so it will be interesting to see what will happen here. LG did commit to updating quite a few devices in its press release, so let’s hope it will stick to that promise, and that the updates will arrive in time.

  18. Surface Book 2 gets updates for graphics improvements and more It's once again time for some Surface updates from Microsoft, and this time, it's the Surface Book 2 that's getting some fresh firmware and drivers. The date on the updates is April 2, and they're for anyone that's running Windows 10 version 1903 or higher, as usual.

You can also download the Surface Book 2 Drivers and Firmware bundle here. Source: Surface Book 2 gets updates for graphics improvements and more
  19. Almost all of LG’s Android 11 updates aren’t coming until the end of 2021 At least, according to the company’s German website Photo by Chaim Gartenberg / The Verge LG’s German website has revealed its Android 11 update roadmap — at least for Europe — and the news isn’t too encouraging. With the exception of the LG Velvet 5G, most of the company’s phones won’t get Android 11 until the back half of 2021, with the vast majority of devices not seeing the update until at least Q4 2021 (long after Android 12 should be available, if Google’s release schedule is similar this year). It’s worth noting that the released schedule is only from LG’s German site. It’s possible that time frames will be different in other regions, that LG could add more devices over time, or that the updates will simply take less time to develop than the company expects. The slow update speed isn’t entirely surprisingly, though. LG’s phone business has been struggling for years, prompting reports that the company is considering exiting the smartphone space entirely this year, although the company told The Verge in January that nothing has been finalized yet. LG has also denied rumors that its next major smartphone, the LG Rollable, has been canceled, although there’s still no firm release date for that device either outside of a vague 2021 window.

  20. Samsung fixes critical Android bugs in March 2021 updates This week Samsung has started rolling out Android's March security updates to mobile devices to patch critical security vulnerabilities in the runtime, operating system, and related components. This comes after Android had published their March 2021 security updates bulletin, which includes patches for critical vulnerabilities impacting the latest devices. As observed by BleepingComputer, Samsung Galaxy devices are automatically pulling updates released on March 5, 2021, this week. These updates mainly comprise significant security fixes with a couple of enhancements across Samsung Galaxy built-in apps like Calendar, Display, Social Platform, and SmartThings. Samsung Galaxy S10 prompting users to get March 2021 updates Source: BleepingComputer Every vulnerability addressed by this update, has either a 'High' or 'Critical' severity rating, making this update a must for Android users so that their devices remain protected. From RCE via Bluetooth to Privilege Escalation There's the critical vulnerability, CVE-2021-0397 lurking in the Android System arising from a null pointer, which has been fixed by this update. The vulnerability in Android's Bluetooth Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) implementation, called Fluoride Bluetooth stack could let an attacker perform remote code execution (RCE) attacks via a specially crafted Bluetooth transmission. Fix made for CVE-2021-0397, critical RCE vulnerability Source: Google Source for Android Additionally, Google Play Protect has stepped up protections and made exploitation of Android vulnerabilities more challenging by adding security enhancements. "Exploitation for many issues on Android is made more difficult by enhancements in newer versions of the Android platform." "We encourage all users to update to the latest version of Android where possible," stated this month's Android advisory. Other flaws impacting components like Framework, System, and Android runtime could allow sensitive information disclosure and privilege escalation by attackers. The list of vulnerabilities patched by this update includes: Android runtime CVE References Type Severity Updated AOSP versions CVE-2021-0395 A-170315126 EoP High 11 Framework CVE References Type Severity Updated AOSP versions CVE-2021-0391 A-172841550 EoP High 8.1, 9, 10, 11 CVE-2021-0398 A-173516292 EoP High 11 System CVE References Type Severity Updated AOSP versions CVE-2021-0397 A-174052148 RCE Critical 8.1, 9, 10, 11 CVE-2017-14491 A-158221622 RCE High 8.1, 9, 10, 11 CVE-2021-0393 A-168041375 RCE High 8.1, 9, 10, 11 CVE-2021-0396 A-160610106 RCE High 8.1, 9, 10, 11 CVE-2021-0390 A-174749461 EoP High 8.1, 9, 10, 11 CVE-2021-0392 A-175124730 EoP High 9, 10, 11 CVE-2021-0394 A-172655291 [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] ID High 8.1, 9, 10, 11 Google Play system updates Component CVE WiFi CVE-2021-0390 Some bugs may still be exploitable On select Samsung Galaxy devices, the updates pushed this week have their latest "security patch level" dated "2021-03-01." This implies the high and critical severity vulnerabilities yet to be fixed by the "2021-03-05 security patch" could still be exploitable. Users are advised to update their Android devices immediately to safeguard against these bugs, and ensure their devices have the "auto-update" settings enabled. A full description of enhancements and optimizations this update brings is provided on Samsung's website. Source: Samsung fixes critical Android bugs in March 2021 updates
  21. Tor Browser adds better HTML5 support, removes SHA-1 Tor browser 6.0 The Tor Project released today version 6.0 of its famous privacy-first Web browser, which is now based on the Firefox 45-ESR release, and features better HTML5 support and updated security features to safeguard encrypted traffic and its updates mechanism. There are a lot of people that hate the recent Australis-based Firefox versions, among which 45-ESR is one, mainly due to its revamped GUI that most users considered non-Firefoxey or too-Chromey. Nevertheless, the Web can get really lonely if the browser you're on doesn't fully support the modern technologies on which most websites are being built today. This update doesn't necessarily mean new features only, but throwing out the old as well, a picture perfect image of what the latest Tor Browser stable version is. Better HTML5 support means less Flash Being based on Firefox 45-ESR, Tor Browser 6.0 automatically brings in top-of-the-line HTML5 support, which should make it much easier now to leave your Flash plugin turned off on the majority of sites you're visiting. Since Flash can give away details like your IP, you should be staying away from Flash altogether if you value Tor more for its privacy features rather than for its ability to throw a different IP at you every time you boot it up. Secondly, Firefox 45-ESR also features support for the Push API for dynamic notifications, but also better support for the latest JavaScript standard, such as ES6 classes. The Tor team also brought in an important fix for Mac OS X, where the Tor Browser from now on will be using code-signing in order to avoid getting blocked by OS X's GateKeeper security app. Tor Browser 6.0 says good bye to SHA-1 The biggest changes, or at least in our eyes, are the modifications made to the browser's encryption layer. Since the Tor Browser works on top of an encryption-first protocol, support for modern cryptography must be up to par with such a reputation. As such, Tor Browser 6.0 has removed support for SHA-1 certificates, something that its bigger brothers such as Firefox, Chrome, and Edge have announced this past winter. These browsers are a little bit tardy, mainly due to their huge userbases and will be taking the first steps to remove SHA-1 at the end of June this year, and then a permanent step at the start of 2017. Furthermore, the latest Tor Browser version also comes with a better update mechanism, which now checks both the update package's signature and hash before running the update file. The team also fixed a simple yet serious DLL hijacking issue, and applied some quick fixes here and there to patch some urgent bugs, but the Project promised to deliver complete fixes for these issues in later versions. Tor partially fixes issues with its default search engine provider Last but not least, the Tor Project also clarified the situation of its default search engine, Disconnect, which is now displaying search results via DuckDuckGo's API, instead of Google. The Tor team explains that until Disconnect clarifies its situation with Google, the Tor Project has specifically asked the Disconnect team to supply them with DuckDuckGo search results instead of Bing, which they described as "basically unacceptable quality-wise." The Tor Browser 6.0 is available for download for the Linux, Mac, and Windows operating systems via Softpedia, but if you already have it installed, you should also be able to upgrade via its built-in updater. A full Tor Browser 6.0 changelog is also available. Article source
  22. Not sure if this goes here. Today 15th January 2014 I decided to run windows updates, a.k.a. patch Tuesday. I started it at 01:30. Downloaded, asked for a reboot. Windows rebooted. Then the pause, the update screen the ticker stating how much is done. Stuck at 32%. Then b.s.o.d. This happened twice. Finally it worked, so I thought. Darn updates interfered with my u.s.b. 3 2 t.b. h.d.d. configuration. Now one don't work. I fixed this before, by unplugging the u.s.b. 3 drive affected, rebooting and after display screen plugging in u.s.b. 3 drive. However go to desktop; notified that drivers were being installed, then crashed again. Anyone else having problems with windows updates released on January 14th 2014?
  23. Hi, my windows 8.1 didn't get any updates from weeks I wonder if I'm alone in this or what??
  24. Google today released an update to its reCAPTCHA system that creates different classes of CAPTCHAs for different kinds of users. In short, it makes your life easier if you’re a human, and your work much harder if you’re a bot. For those who have encountered CAPTCHAs and reCAPTCHA, but have no idea what they are, here’s a quick primer. CAPTCHA stands for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”, and as its name implies, it is a quick test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human. You’ve probably encountered hundreds of these if a site decides to verify whether you’re human or not. reCAPTCHA, which was acquired by Google in September 2009, is similar to the CAPTCHA interface, except that it asks users to enter words seen in distorted text images onscreen. It presents two words: one which it knows (used to test whether you are human), and one which it doesn’t (used to help digitize the text in books). Google notes that over the last few years, advances in artificial intelligence have reduced the gap between human and machine capabilities in deciphering distorted text, and the reCAPTCHA team has been making its system more adaptive via extensive research and steady improvements. Unsurprisingly, Google wouldn’t share too much detail as to how the new system works, aside from saying it uses advanced risk analysis techniques, actively considering the user’s entire engagement (before, during and after) with the CAPTCHA. In other words, the distorted letters are not the only test. Here’s what Google says it gains from the changes:"This multi-faceted approach allows us to determine whether a potential user is actually a human or not, and serve our legitimate users CAPTCHAs that most of them will find easy to solve. Bots, on the other hand, will see CAPTCHAs that are considerably more difficult and designed to stop them from getting through." Since humans find numeric CAPTCHAs (pictured above) significantly easier to solve than those containing arbitrary text, Google will be showing you more and more numbers. Bots, meanwhile, won’t even see them. That’s not all. Google says “significant advancements” to the reCAPTCHA technology are on their way “in the next few months.” source: tnw
  25. I use Universal Extractor pretty much every day. It's the best way to open almost any setup file to make apps portable or stand-alone. It opens things better than any other app I have used. Gora has made many updates to it, but AFAIK there are things that didn't get updated and besides, I won't use his because it freaks out AV programs reliably. For a while here R3CON was updating UE and his version was much better than Gora's (IMO), had more functions updated, and never, ever set off an AV program on my system. Trouble is, R3CON seems to have quit updating UE because his post about it has gone quiet ( http://www.nsaneforums.com/topic/158973-universal-extractor-161-updated-mar-2013-x86-x64-builds/ ) and I even tried asking him via PM about it and got no reply. My question is...: Does anyone know if there are other folks who keep UE updated, and where their work might be found ?? Thanks.
