If you’re one of the freak beta testers to test latest windows patches, time has come. This never happened with Windows 7 & Windows 8.1 for microsoft to release any new non security patches.

Official Patches

KB 3128008 Security patch for Excel 2013 that came out last year in december broke the Send as PDF and Send as XPS functions in Excel. This was later on solved on 10 january with a patch KB3141475. One’s who are still facing issues may install the latest patch to get in good shape.


Windows 10

Alert for gaming freaks who use multiple monitors attached to the same PC. They may refrain from installing the latest updates from Microsoft. Microsoft has itself announced a known issue as mentioned below:

  • KB 3213986 for the Anniversary Update, version 1607, build 14393.693
  • KB 3210721 for the Fall (now “November”) Update, version 1511, build 10586.753
  • KB 3210720 for the RMT version (now “1507”), build to 10240.17236

In case you face certain issues, you may uninstall the recent cumulative update to avoid getting errors.

Our recommendations are, before installing an update you should take full system backup. Any of the attached usb devices if stop to work you may roll back to the previous driver using ‘DEVICE MANAGER’ of your PC.

There can be times when your computer will fail to take the latest cumulative update. One can off-course  report this issue directly to Microsoft.


Windows 7 or 8.1 

It’s total your call when it comes to installing and trying new updates from Microsoft. There can be certain users who would wish to try all the updates what Microsoft has to offer. On the other, certain number of users will only install security updates confirmed by Microsoft.

For first category of users, it is always advised to take proper backup of the system before installing any new Microsoft non security update. To avoid loosing files and complete operating system, this is utmost important.


Latest Adobe Reader patch

As per the resources, users are not advised to install the latest adobe reader patch on their computer. As this automatically installs a Google Chrome spyware extension in your browser. According to @SwiftOnSecurity, “Adobe pushes this to 30 million people through automatic updater without notice, without prompt, without mention in the changelog.” At best, refrain from installing the latest Adobe Reader patch if you find one. Best thing is, acrobat updates don’t go directly through Windows Update.
