    Greetings. Question about a clean install using Simplix UpdatePack7R2 (January). I was installing win7 on a friend's machine a week or so past. Using January Simplix UpdatePack, everything seemed to go smooth until reboot. Id followed all the instructions for win7SP1 (Pro), installed up to .netFramework 4.5.2, a handfull of security updates, and a select few single KB updates from Windows 7 Update. Using command system32>UpdatePack7R2.exe /ie11 /silent / reboot. Machine would reboot, Win7Live(Simplix) Temp files would clean, then machine would reboot, and after last reboot the machine would be stuck on Black Windows Screen, with Windows Logo.

    Now if I used say, an UpdatePack7R2, from December 2017, the machine would install all those previous UpdatePack7R2 KBs, clean, and reboot no problem. Ive looked around online for an answer but came up blank.

    What do you think the problem was, or what may I have missed? It was a Factory Win10 Installed machine (but the OEMs website states it was win7 eligible -so hardware lockout isnt the culprit). The most frustrating part was any system restore (when booting from SSD/HDD), was that we'd get locked out bc of the win7 USB 3.0 incompatibility. So I had to always change Boot Order, and boot from USB, where Id mounted the OEMs/Intel USB 3.0 drivers (which was another headache trying to find working restore points, but thats another story).

    So yeah, why a Boot-Loop type screen (stalled Win7 logo screen) after using more recent UpdatePacks? I made sure no roll-ups were installed via WinUpdate/Installer. I tried latest UpdatePack7R2 before installing MBAM AV (I also tried UpdatePacks after AV install, both enabled and disabled when using SimplixPack), so I can rule out AV causing the glitch. More than sufficient RAM and disk space were present... I gave it a large Page File (just in case), and made sure the KB noted on Simplix fresh install instructions was installed (sh*t, like KB976932+/-). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    If anyone does a new Install of win7 using a Simplix update pack (using any UpdatePack post 12/2018), would you kindly post if it worked for you? I'm wondering if a .netFramework 4.5.2 Security Update install -prior to running SimplixUpdate pack, was the cause of a Black Screen w/ Windows Icon, 'boot loop'. I can't wrap my head around it, first time I've ever had a problem using Simplix on a Fresh install. I wish I studied Russian language at Uni. *damn* ;) Thanks!

    I did a full clean install 2 weeks ago with Win7 pro sp1 .iso via Rufus and then patched with Simplix version 15Dec2018 and had no problems.

    *Are any of you all still using a tool like GWX Control Panel for a safety, added precaution?
    Something feels like MS is going to get medieval on our asses in months to come. (not a Skpe user, but perhaps a BS move similar to what MS recently did w/ "old vers" Skpe holdouts?).
    *Also, is there a more recent, KB Uninstall .bat that maybe incorporates some Simplix removals as well as the KBs w/in the bat file here, pg1?
    Thanks!!

    I just disable Windows update filth, and not worry about it. No need for them to push their trash on me, when i can cherry pick KB's.

    Internet Explorer 11 ?
    Hey now.
    This post got me thinking about upgrading to ie11 (although I never use Internet Explorer).
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...-internet-browser.826301/page-7#post-10856137

    Any feedback on advantages/disadvantages for updating to ie11? (I used Phoenix's ie10/11 Blocker from Page #1 and left ie9 -set w/ strict settings, plus I never use it).

    Also, is it Ok to turn Internet Explorer 'Off' w/in Windows Features? (I will do that on some machines that don't use any IE dependent software)
    Thanks in advance for any advice/feedback!
