    I am concerned about that too.
    I expect Itman knows more. I sent him a PM - hopefully he will reply here, if he has access to some reliable sources or has done some analysis on his own.

    Woot. Mighty big thanks for the 8.1 new posting too.

    So new rollup didn't slow down 8.1 right?

    I was thanking for bringing it to my attention. Not yet applied them so no answer to if it might affect performance.

    BUT, since performance on 8.1 is a continuing priority on this end, if updates even act like they trimmed anything then back out they go.

    KB4089187 IE Security update ... IE might not start after installing this update.

    On March 23, it was replaced with KB4096040.

    - See (originally posted by Nick, with a follow up by Fanj) in case you missed it ...

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/bork-tuesday-any-problems-yet.370217/page-159#post-2746559

    If you are a security-only updater, you will have to get the March 23 update (KB4096040) from the MS Catalog. You could wait for the April IE direct link (in this thread) if you do not use IE.

    Installed security only update kb4088878 (win7 64bit) and checked PCI.SYS file and my file version is 6.1.7601.24056 updated 3/13/2018 which is not less than version 6.1.7601.21744. Am I missing something in the translation? (pardon the pun)

    Yes, it is above.

    The Sages are saying to expect an R2 of this update as it has not been pulled. The PCI.SYS file may be at play in the next iteration.

    Hi Emmjay, I have same PCI.SYS (6.1.7601.24056) version as Wolfrun in my W7, for March I installed kb4088878, are you saying we are supposed to do something? I am kind of confused.

    More than likely not.

    Another edit:
    I've searched around for more information, but have found none. My PCI.SYS was back level and I installed the security-only update KB4088878 for March without any problem. Some people are speculating that you will not be offered the monthly rollup through windows update if you have a back level version of the PCI driver - I see no evidence of that in online discussions or in tech blogs.

    Edit 2: Microsoft updated the description page for both the monthly and the security update patches today - Mar 27, 2018.

    Thats what I thought, thanks. I knew some people had issues connecting to the internet after doing the update (kb408887) but I did it after Wolfrun confirmed he had done it and hadn't had issues. I haven't had any issue after installing this update in W7 32 bits.

    You got that right, Wolfrun. Amazing but true (computer problems disappear for good when you are a full time Sandboxie user).

    Sorry if I'm on the wrong thread but my W7 pro 64 hasn't received any Tuesday patch since Dec 2017.
    What am I doing wrong? Per default I'm not installing any "recommended patches"

    Aren't I supposed to get KB4088878 via WU (or the monthly security rollup. not sure what KB ref. it comes with)?

    No, KB4088878 is not sent via windows update, it is a security-only update. The monthly quality rollups are sent via windows update.

    If you have not received any Windows updates at all since Dec 2017, it is possibly your anti-virus program that is causing the problem.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072699/windows-security-updates-and-antivirus-software

    What are your windows update settings?
    Are you getting an error message from Windows Update when it runs or is it saying no updates are available?

    @new2security,
    Where you wrote, "my W7 pro 64 hasn't received any Tuesday patch since Dec 2017", do you mean it got the December 2017 updates, or do you mean it didn't get the December 2017 updates either?

    If your Windows 7 system didn't get the December 2017 updates either, the issue may be an early December Windows Update issue that should have been fixed automatically the first week of December but wasn't fixed automatically on all systems.
    It can be fixed by option 1. disabling the Windows Update service (wuauserv) and confirming, and then re-enabling the Windows Update service and confirming, or option 2. changing Windows Update settings to "Turn off Automatic Updates", confirming, and then changing Windows Update settings back to your preferred setting (Automatic, or Download, or Notify).

    However, if your system did get the December 2017 updates, the early December Windows Update issue is unlikely to be the cause of your problem, and the cause may lie in the possibly that emmjay suggested: no of incompatible third-party anti-virus software, so that the required registry key is not set. For details, see the Microsoft URL that emmjay provided.

    Perhaps you don't have a 3rd party AV installed and that's why you don't get updates anymore? if that's the case then add the registry key (see the link) to enable updates again.

    Yes, I'm referring to those monthly quality rollups.
    I don't use an AV.
    I check and download for updates manually. I've disabled some recommended updates but as far as I can see, they're not related to my problem.
    I get one or two recommended updates once in a while but I always ignore them.
