  1. Another update that won't work

    I got that same update and my first snafu with Win 10. Funny thing is, I have an Intel system. After the update my computer was locking up at random and a hard re-start would bring it back for a while. I have received another update yesterday and I have not experienced any more lockups so far.
  2. Goggle Warning

    I get these frequently as I use Google extensively. If you have a gmail account, android phone and you use a device that connects to Google's servers in some fashion, whether e-mail, browser, keep, play store, etc (they have tons of services). You utilize one device for a while and then a diffrent device or even from a diffrent domain, ip, router, etc. Google will let you know of the "new" connection. For instance, I go from home to work and auto logon to each router for internet access. I don't hear anything, but when I go to a restaurant and logon to their router for access and then connect to one of Google services even inadvertently, I get the warning. That being said, you did the right thing by not clicking the link, going to the legit address and changing your password. Hope this sets your mind at least a little bit at ease. Rob
  3. Win10 OS 1709 upgrade came out

    SO, this is a known issue with RDP and the new fall Creators Update. http://www.surfacetablethelp.com/2017/05/your-computer-cant-connect-to-the-remote-desktop-gateway-server-after-windows-10-creator-update.html The workaround is downloading and installing Remote Desktop Connection Manager and use it instead of the built in RDC. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=44989 If anyone else is having these same issues, the above worked for me.

    Smooth here on 9 machines. I take that back, my main computer that I use for all my office work, the RDP connection to the Server 2008R2 crashes. in other words, I RDP from Win10 to Server 2008R2 where our point of sale software resides. I am looking at event viewer now. just thought I'd update.

    The patch was released in March, namely Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010, which addresses the vulnerability that these attacks are exploiting. Basically, you can get your computer patched up through either Windows Update or install manually through Microsoft Update Catalog. Microsoft also made an exception and released security patches for their legacy operating systems such as Windows XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003. You can find all individual patches and download them from Microsoft Update Catalog website. If you have Windows Update set up to install updates automatically, your computer is most likely already patched up. But how do I now if that’s the case? You can go to “View update history” in Windows Update in Control Panel to find out. Here are the list of KB numbers for this patch on various Windows systems. Windows Vista & Windows Server 2008: KB4012598 Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2: KB4012212 (Security Only) or KB4012215 (Monthly Rollup) Windows 8.1: KB4012213 (Security Only) or KB4012216 (Monthly Rollup) Windows Server 2012: KB4012214 (Security Only) or KB4012217 (Monthly Rollup) Windows Server 2012 R2: KB4012213 (Security Only) or KB4012216 (Monthly Rollup) Windows 10 First release: KB4012606 Version 1511: KB4013198 Version 1607: KB4013429 Windows 2016: KB4013429 SOURCE

    Not that I know of, it should have come down in the March updates. I'll look when I get back to work. I'm at lunch with my lovely wife!
