    Wrapping up another year of Windows updating


    Patch Watch

    Wrapping up another year of Windows updating


    By Susan Bradley

    By any measure, 2016 was strange and jarring and that includes Windows patching, which was problematic for both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

    But a new year brings renewed hope. Among my new-year wishes is one that 2017 is much better for Win10.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/patch-watch/wrapping-up-another-year-of-windows-updating/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Patch Watch column updates:

    Patch Tuesday known issues:


    Excel file issue https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...10-march-14-20

    After you install this security update, Excel 2010 may crash or hang (stop responding or freeze) when calculations are performed in a workbook. The calculations may be triggered either by code or by user interaction.

    Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.

    Would it not be possible to quote an English site?

    You may have a point...

    The web site appears to be in Texas, however the text reminds me of a poorly written "troll bot".

    Perhaps MS need to tweak their Microsoft Translator app for iOS?

    Remember the old joke about sportscasters? They like florid language about the game results, mainly to keep their broadcast interesting:

    "Dallas Crushed Houston 30-18! Atlanta Smashed Detroit 45-9! New York Destroyed Denver 11-3! And Los Angeles Beat San Francisco 9-7!"

    Beat? Beat?! You raise our linguistic expectations with Crush, Smash, Destroy, and then wimp out with Beat?!!

    I had a client report that Outlook 2016 instant search functionality
    stopped working last week after she rebooted her computer. Turns out
    it's a known bug in the most recent build that can be resolved by
    reverting to the previous build.

    1. Open a command prompt and run the following commands in order:
    cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun
    officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.7571.2109
    *
    2. Open Outlook and click File, Office Account and set Update Options to
    Disable Updates
    *
    3. Add an appointment on your calendar for a month or more out to remind
    you to re-enable updates.
