Beaumont argues Microsoft should set a date for when it will no longer require the compatibility registry key or risk a large number of machines going without patches.
This resulted in fragmentation where different PCs could have a different set of updates installed leading to multiple potential problems: By moving to a rollup model, we bring a more consistent and simplified servicing experience to Windows 7 SP1 and 8.1, so that all supported versions of Windows follow a similar update servicing model.This shouldn't be possible in the latest operating systems, but some antivirus vendors have managed it by taking themselves into the hypervisor...Antivirus makers really shouldn't be messing with systems like this." He estimates there are five key vendors that use this technique.Most Intel processors and some ARM chips are confirmed to be vulnerable, putting billions of devices at risk of attacks.In our announcement earlier in May, we introduced a Convenience Rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 and a shift to monthly rollups of non-security updates for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1.NET Framework 4 with a couple of other updates for Windows.All updates installed without problems except the 3 updates for . NET Framework 4 has somehow got corrupted and needs to be reinstalled. NET Framework 4, I should try the repair option first. NET Framework 4 Client Profile from the list and click on the Uninstall/Change button. NET Framework 4 Client Profile Maintenance window will open and select the “Repair . NET Framework 4, I went to Windows Update again and try to install the 2 updates and 1 security update. Based on your feedback, today we're announcing some new changes for servicing Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1.These changes also apply to Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2.During testing of the patches for the two attacks, Microsoft discovered some antivirus had been making "unsupported calls into Windows kernel memory" that stop a machine from booting or cause blue screen of death (BSOD) errors after the patch is applied. Security researcher Kevin Beaumont has compiled a list of antivirus products that are both compatible with Microsoft's CPU update and have the required Windows registry key set correctly.As ZDNet reported earlier this week, some vendors are doing both, while others have only confirmed compatibility.
