Thanks Krusty. I”ll pass the previews and wait for next patch-Tuesday.
MS-DEFCON 4 – February updates trigger few issues by Susan Bradley.
Of February’s patches, Ignite, and the fate of Windows 10 feature releases by Susan Bradley.
When Windows bug fixes go bad, IT can now roll back individual changes by Gregg Keizer.
Well, that banner disappeared. It may have been after the most recent update or later, didn't notice. But now, it's decent, not so cluttered.
Spoiler: settings sans banner
are you sure it's not because you've resized its window? because in my settings app it's still there.
Thanks for the tips. The updates went smoothly, an auto-restart or two, and the machines are behaving well.
Installed KB4598481 latest SSU and KB4601319, another CU to 20H2, bringing me to 19042.804 on a desktop and laptop.

The 'Windows Update' function is also at the top of the Settings panel now, and also still farther down in my Settings panel.
I resized it before posting to check. It's literally gone. Maybe the Settings Fairy came by and went "Poof."
Spoiler: resized settings sans banner
I'll keep an eye out for any observations on this. I'm running winver 19043.844 (Insiders beta). I'll enjoy it while it lasts cuz it may come back later.
Still there for me too
EDIT.. Is it because you are on insiders build plat1098 ?
excellent. i hope it's gone for good.
looks like that might be the case.
Pause Patch Tuesday updates, watch out for Exchange server attacks by Susan Bradley.
KB5000848 installed on 8.1 x64. No problems so far.
Well, I'm thrilled to announce that the Banner at the top of my Settings app mysteriously returned. Can't chalk it up to KB5000802 and the Malicious Software Removal Tool either as it showed up prior. No problems w/updating at all but nothing to delete via Disk Cleanup. File Explorer is reporting 2.5 GB missing as usual. Only got back 680 MB via deleting some contents of the Software Distribution folder.
Winver on here is 19043.867 (Insiders Beta )
Further to KB5000848, another update KB4589212 (Intel microcode updates for Windows 10, version 2004 and 20H2) installed today in my laptop & desktop.
Ok, the laptop has Intel processor, but my desktop has AMD, strange.....
Speaking of Microcode Updates. Anyone here uses InSpectre? I turn off the Meltdown/Spectre patches to get the max performance. I could care less about this vulnerability with the security setup that I have.
What about this one: (but you will be unable to uninstall the updates if needed at a later stage). I got my space back by using it:
Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
My PC is faster enough to handle it: (I guess this is because i8700k supports INVPCID instruction).
On Windows 10 the impact should be even lower since 10 uses Retpoline.
But I am with a few microcode updates behind since I am still on Windows 8.1, and they are available through Windows Update only on Windows 10 and AsRock didn't release a new BIOS since 2019 for Z370 Extreme4. However, I am not worried since most of these attacks needs physical access to succeed anyway.
Also got KB4589212 on my ThinkBook and Dell XPS (Intel) laptops, and my Build no. now 19042.867.
Windows 10 KB5000802 (March) update is crashing PCs with BSOD
Looks like this Cumulative may have been pulled as I cannot get it on 2 PC's this morning.
I did get it on another PC last night.
March 2021 cumulative updates cause printing bluescreens on Windows 10 devices
I looked this morning and I didn't get it either, Thank God.
JFYI, not on my machine. The update installed flawlessly in a blink today morning and no BSOD observed since then.
When i disable meltdown/spectre it does not seem to work. The GUI still says it is protected from them.
Thanks alot, this did recover another 1 GB or so but I installed other stuff in the interim so who knows if I got it all back. Ironically, I've used this command before and forgot about it.
You disable one, then either gets reenabled, then you disable the other, then reboot. They should then both be disabled. Please try and let me know.
