    @Phoenix did you start another thread for the patch to allow Windows 7 / 8.1 Windows Updates on Kabylake / Ryzen CPU's?

    I didn't see it mentioned in post #1 here either.

    I don't have a system to test, but maybe you do? Then either start another thread for it, or add it here?

    What do you think?

    Hey guys, after fresh Windows 7 re-installation enough just to install the the latest Simplix Pack? I installed, but Windows update still showing lots of available updates...

    Used that wuaueng.dll hexedit method on a 7700K machine at work onto which the dismal patches were already installed; easy as 1-2-3 and no nagging popup anymore, all updates henceforth being accepted. Only hiccup was not being local admin, so it refused to overwrite the existing dll. The 'Take Ownership' trick solved that bit and set it read-only afterwards for good measure.

    Now just need an unlocked bios and eliminate some throttle limits. Bit strange this is necessary; it's a business-line tower being sold with K-models as a standard option.

    What kind of business-line tower needs a BIOS mod to deliver full performance without malfunctioning? Is it a Dell? I know Alienware castrates the firmware and actively tries to block upgrades on their 'high performance' desktops. Things are beyond bad enough already with notebook OEMs believing they have some kind of right to own their customers. Doing the same to a desktop takes their criminal activity to a heightened level of fraud.

    A HP. It's hitting 'VR' and the multiplier is limited to 45x. Don't care about multi-threaded performance, but do want to eke out every bit when it is running single-threaded applications. Seems there's a more recent bios out with a microcode update, so with any luck that'll tackle part of the problem. Adding a few heatsinks may aid the VR bit, but remember that this is an office environment, so ... tinkering during after-work hours, preferably.

    Really, a game-oriented motherboard (=decent bios) and diy would've been much easier, not to mention cheaper. That's medium-to-large business for you; overpaying for pre-assembled, locked-down systems and 'support'.

    Hey now. I noticed the .bat file unique to this discussion, undesirable KB3139929 is different then the Simplix Update similarly named, undesirable KB3139923. Just pointing it out... I didn't look at the KB updates via MS website too closely -so they both could be bad news. Maybe Simplix has a typo? I wanted to mention just in case there was a typo on someone's part. I didnt see Simplix mention KB3139929. I can look at it closely later -but in the meantime thought Id post. Woody notes KB3139929, so the discussion's .bat is probably solid. Peace!

    I love simplix Pack. Do not install other updates via Windows update. Simplix Pack superseeds all the old ones.
