Me too, but just on my Surface Book laptop. Sweet!
Installed ALL Updates for Win 7. No problems yet.
Win 1073 64X
This was very minor but kb4038788 modified IE's tab interface. However, @itman said it was easily reset so after looking around in Advanced options, just ended up right-clicking in an empty spot and removing the check mark for "show tabs in a separate row." For some reason the setting for "block third party cookies" was undone so had to re-enable that.
A second machine only runs the Edge browser and that was messed up, only showing a blank screen. Dism found something and /restorehealth ran "successfully" but Edge wasn't fixed, so I tried changing blank home page to showing news feed, stuff like that, and that worked. Edge is not a particularly good browser on here but C: only has 117GB so limited third party and I only gots me one HMP Alert license and that's for IE11.
See? This is why I said I must dash. Eew.
On my two Windows 7 x64 systems, I installed KB4038777 (Monthly Rollup for Windows 7), KB4041083 (Security Rollup for .NET Framework), and the Malicious Software Removal Tool update.
On my desktop, update was OK.
On my notebook, Windows Update had a few errors, and needed a couple of retries, before finally all was well.
I really don't understand why Microsoft reintroduced the search box in IE11, as, since long, search can be done in the address bar.
Unticking "Show tabs on a separate row" removes/hides the search box, but I had "Show tabs on a separate row" set for a good reason, I want the full screen width for tabs, and a wide address bar, so unticking "Show tabs on a separate row" is not a solution to me.
If anyone finds a way to remove the obsolete search box other than unticking "Show tabs on a separate row", that would be very helpful to me.
[edit 1: that -> than]
[edit 2: Show tabs in a row -> Show tabs on a separate row]
Thanks for reporting.
I checked both my Windows 7 x64 systems, and "block third party cookies" was still enabled, in administrator and standard user accounts.
Four Win 10 Pro x64 machines updated via KB4038788 from v1703 15063.540 to Win 10 Pro x64 v1703 15063.608.
In my case, the older the machine, the more hassle-free it is . I had to update my newest machine via MS catalog. WU did not pick it up (this is a problem I've had there for the last few months).
No issues with 3 today's updates (Cumulative, Flash and MRT) on my Win 10 machine.
First ever issue on x64 W10 I built the spring that the Ivy Bridge CPUs were available (?)! Had a notice that "788" failed to install. I went to their catalogue and screwed up downloading two file versions, the most recent a day newer, a Delta as it was called. Anyway that did not work. Went back to settings again and "Check For Updates" worked this time. Machine downloaded and installed fine!
Windows 10 x64 ~ Version: 1703 - OS Build: 15063.608
I believe "something fishing is going on" along the lines that MS is constantly trying to hijack your default search engine to Bing but haven't found the "smoking gun" yet.
This is IE 11 following the kb4038788, it's pretty much unchanged for me after doing the right-click in tabs area (corrected above post to add "separate" to "row"). If I go to Internet options/Tabs/When a new tab is opened, open: and select " a blank page," about:blank is displayed in the address bar, same as always. This is aesthetically displeasing to me so I have that set to "Your first home page" and that has the Bing search.
The is some of Microsoft's explanation for the changes the above kb made to IE:
Edit: I searched for a way to get rid of the Bing search bar and the only thing I really found was to disable search suggestions in Manage add-ons option. It doesn't let you remove Bing search entirely. There are some other methods but it's OK for me. Sorry for windy post, this was for my edification. A long search bar would be nice, that is true but can't get it without settling for the new tabs in a separate row. Or just click and drag the address bar edge, makes it longer.
Thank you for those pics!! For me they were better to "see" than the others.
Thanks also to others!
Bloated Patch Tuesday brings fix for nasty Word/RTF/Net vulnerability by Woody Leonhard.
Windows7-Pro-SP1 64-bit: Sucessful update of .Net3 and .Net4 - kb4041083, Security+Quality rollup - kb4038777 and MSRT - kb890830.
But I notices strange discrepancy in reporting:
- Software distribution report and Update History list match above KBs - see UpdHistory screenshot
- Installed updates list doesn't match above except for kb4038777 - see Installed screenshots.
Looks like we are into alternative facts here as well
In case you haven't already noticed it:
There are many complaints all over at the internet about language changes in Office 2007.
Quoting Woody Leonhard from
One of the additional issues (and that remark is often made in those complaints), is that the end of extended support for the Office 2007 family of desktop and server products is coming up next month. See posting by Ron :
Microsoft September 2017 Patch Day: issues overview
^^^ Above noticed in 3 PCs.
It looks like some people had problems with
KB4038777 and Internet Explorer shortcuts -- The report suggests that the update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 blocks Internet Explorer shortcuts from working correctly.
What are the symptoms of this problem? Shortcuts don't run a program or something else?
I got that from the ghacks link above..
Heh. I don't have Edge browser installed so no issues. But with a crappy beta like Edge, that's to be expected.
It does not look like the problems with kb4038777 have been fixed yet because i still have 777 waiting for me to install it.
