    I hear you... But Two times a year with this mess is all too much.

    Lab rats, Windows 10 and the importance of being last computerworld | Oct 9, 2018
    The file-deletion flaw that plagued last week's rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update shows how Microsoft uses consumers to test out the OS so its important customers – businesses – are protected.

    Lab rats = guinea pig:D

    Key to Windows 10: consumers as lab rats

    One of the foundational characteristics of Windows 10 is Microsoft's two-tier classification of customers. The lower tier includes those who operate Windows 10 Home, the upper tier, all others. (One could argue that there are, in fact, three kinds of Windows 10 users, because those running Windows 10 Pro occupy the middle ground between Home's folk and the top-of-the-heap Windows 10 Enterprise customers.)

    Because Microsoft requires Windows 10 Home users to install and use each feature upgrade, it ensures that a large group "tests" every build. There's no straight-forward way to, say, skip a spring upgrade - 1803, perhaps - between two fall upgrades (1709 and 1809), so there will never be a smaller-than-average pool of testers for any one refresh.

    Patch Tuesday: The good, the bad, the ugly and the hopeless

    Posted on October 9th, 2018 at 12:47 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge
    Patch Tuesday patches are rolling out right now and there’s a bunch of them.

    I’m perplexed by the first cumulative update for Win10 version 1809, KB 4464330:

    Addresses an issue affecting group policy expiration where an incorrect timing calculation may prematurely remove profiles on devices subject to the “Delete user profiles older than a specified number of day.”

    There’s no indication if that fixes all of the disappearing Documents, Photos, etc., files that some encountered. Although it may well explain the “Delete user profiles” GPO problem. If it makes any difference, there’s been no change in the “Known issues” section of the original Win10 1809 release, KB 4464619. If Microsoft fixed the file deletion problem, they didn’t change the KB article to reflect the fix.

    There’s also no indication if this means the forced upgrades from 1803 to 1809 are poised to begin.

    Windows 10 version 1809: 19 vulnerabilities of which 3 are critical and 16 are important.

    We also got a Servicing Stack Update for Win10 1809, KB 4465477. If you’re manually installing the cumulative update for 1809 (sanity alert), be sure to get the SSU installed first:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Windows 10 October 2018 Update Re-Release Begins with Insiders (Cumulative Update Is Also Out)
    [​IMG]
    Micro$h4ft has started the process of re-releasing Windows 10 October 2018 Update after the initial release was put to a stop due to a data deletion bug. Windows 10 1809 Build 17763.17 (KB4467228) is now available to Windows Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview rings. The company assured that it will take a slow and steady approach, testing the latest build in the Insider community before making it available to the general public.

    In a blog post explaining the bug, Micro$h4ft said claims that the only a few users experienced data loss – “one one-hundredth of one percent of version 1809 installs.” It added that the company has now fully investigated all reports of data loss and has identified and fixed all known issues in the update, and conducted internal validation. John Cable, Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, writes (emphasis is ours)...

    Prior to re-releasing the October 2018 Update our engineering investigation determined that a very small number of users lost files during the October 2018 Update. This occurred if Known Folder Redirection (KFR) had been previously enabled, but files remain in the original “old” folder location vs being moved to the new, redirected location. KFR is the process of redirecting the known folders of Windows including Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Screenshots, Videos, Camera Roll, etc. from the default folder location, c:\users\username\<folder name>, to a new folder location. In previous feedback from the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, users with KFR reported an extra, empty copy of Known Folders on their device. Based on feedback from users, we introduced code in the October 2018 Update to remove these empty, duplicate known folders. That change, combined with another change to the update construction sequence, resulted in the deletion of the original “old” folder locations and their content, leaving only the new “active” folder intact.

    Micro$hity added that all the issues have now been resolved and the rollout process for the public will be resumed after the feedback is received from the Slow and Release Preview rings.

    Behold, the de-evolution of Windows Cancer OS...

    All identical BIOS settings... all unnecessary services disabled. You decide...

    REALLY??? You thought I installed it? LOL!! What's the point???
    If you really believe the Redmond Retards are FINALLY going to fix this worthless piece of crap, I have some ocean beach property on the east side of Phoenix that I can sell you super cheap.

    Edit: And, if your goal is to drive that final nail in your CPU's performance coffin, go ahead and install a full-bloat GeFarts driver with telemetry and GeFarts Experience cancer. That will add about a second or so to your wPrime 32M elapsed time. Go ahead... try it.

    Once you're done puking, go ahead and DDU that crap and install a @j95 driver mod to exorcise the Green Goblin's life-sucking digital venereal disease from your PC. As a courtesy, here is a link to facilitate the exorcism.

    Exactly. And haven’t Redmond Morons changed/switched around TimerResolution (The default Windows timer) in newer vs. older Win trash 10 versions also?

    Regarding Updates from on trash to the next... See the link in the mess! Updates over clean install is idiocy. You never know what will hit you if you go the Redmond Morons route.

    @Mr. Fox Did you enable Gaming mode using Win+G? I think I felt the benchmark scores were a little better on v1803. Let me test it again.

    Yeah, from the little 5.8 inch BGA JOKE:D

    Edit. More ways to force people on Win Update...
    Microsoft moves printer drivers to Windows Update
    by Martin Brinkmann Winaero.net October 07, 2018
    Windows 10 administrators and users who connect printers or scanners to devices running the operating system may have noticed a change in how printer drivers are installed on the devices. Windows installation...

    In other words: Default drivers for printers and scanners will only be installed if the machine is connected to Windows Update. While that is the case for most PCs running Windows 10, it may pose issues for admins who maintain PCs and devices that are offline or on which Windows Update is blocked.

    Apparently the file deletion problem had to do with Microsoft botching the code for deleting the old library directories when KFR was used to remap them to a new location. It wasn't checking to see if there was any data in the directories and just nuked them off the drive. Worst part is that the bug was reported when 1809 was still in the testing phase, but never fixed.
