    The registry directory you mentioned is missing the QualityCompat [​IMG]

    The correct location is:

    Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat" Value="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc" Type="REG_DWORD”
    Data="0x00000000”

    NOD32 already has this sorted since day one of the patch's release:

    Good lookin out! Yup, I knew that but f’ed up my post. Thanks, and as usual, nice work!

    PSS (Insert Mitch Hedberg joke here): Since Im posting yet again (sorry!)... Ive been meaning to ask if any other Simplix Pack users find “Evil Update” KB2670838 installed after using his packs? I never installed IE 10 nor 11, and make sure not to integrate ie11 when I run his update packs. The only remedy I can think of is using WSUS or running an uninstall KB2670838 .bat immediately after updating w/ a Simplix Pack. Any suggestions to permanently hide that update would be so welcome.
    I shall chill on posting here for a while -so thanks in advance for any Evil Empire Update bypass ideas. Simplix has it on his approved list, but it breaks pages and messes w/ Explorer on my machines. Peace out El Vigilante Maximo! :)

    fresh installation Windows 7 Pro on Kaby Lake. what kind disadvantages of installing IE11? is this IE11 affecting on something like blurry text, spying, telemetry? could someone post safest list of updates KB**** that should be installed, updates without bugs and W10 preparation. security updates and .NET updates are still safe? thanks

    Installing IE 11 will break Aero and cause that blurry text on some systems. Safe list? that's what the whole thread is about, check the OP.

    For an easier hassle free method of installing all the updates without the bad ones, download and install the Simplix Pack but make sure you unselect IE11 from the list of updates offered.

    You need to run it a few times because some more updates will appear after you install the first set and reboot. Keep running it until it finds no updates except IE11 because we don't want that.

    thank you for quick reply. also I have one question about Intel Graphics drivers. maybe someone know how add windows 7 section support to the file "igdlh64.inf" on Intel 15.60 Graphics driver. Intel removed that section. I need it for 8th Gen CPU (8550U Kaby Lake) running on Windows 7. For now I using 15.45 (modified) which support 7th Gen maximum. Works very well. Do I really need 15.60 for full support?
